Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Building the World We Dream About: An Anti-racism Multicultural Program

Spiritual Preparation

Prepare yourself for the presence of guests in your workshop by reflecting on the relationship you have built with each guest. Prepare yourself for the possibility that participants may hear authentic feedback and opinions they are unaccustomed to hearing from People of Color and other people marginalized by racial or ethnic identity. Practice meditation or centering prayer to keep your own anxiety and tension at bay, expressing gratitude for the willingness of your guests to share their voices and experiences with your group.
