Upcoming Public Retreats

For the first time, our public retreats take some of our most requested content from our work with groups and organizations, and make them available to a broader audience. Upon completing a one-day retreat, participants will leave with both theoretical frameworks and concrete resources to support their work within their community.

This coming spring we will be offering four different public retreats on 1) Conflict Analysis, 2) Liberatory Facilitation, 3) Harm Systems Design, and 4) Safety and Care Planning. Each of the one-day retreats will be scheduled twice in the spring of 2022 and you can sign up now to be the first to know when those dates are finalized. Please read the brochure linked above for more information about each retreat and how you can get involved!


Before each retreat, participants will learn about our values, community agreements and harm response systems, have an opportunity to introduce themselves to their fellow students, and to submit questions to inform the facilitation and direction of the live event. At the conclusion of each retreat, participants will receive a list of additional resources and are invited to submit a personal artifact or reflection to the group to signify their learning. Additionally, each retreat includes optional coaching to support in personalizing the collective’s learnings.
