“Are you sure, sweetheart, that you want to be well?… Just so’s you're sure, sweetheart, and ready to be healed, cause wholeness is no trifling matter. A lot of weight when you’re well.”― Toni Cade Bambara, The Salt Eaters. What do just liberating practices of healing look like? What are the curiosities as well as the contradictions we bring to this question? Can we foster the psychological safety of having these conversations honestly and foster collective healing? Moments in our history of struggle have given us an inkling of what might be needed as well as the danger to our community if we do not answer these questions. Join us as we work together to explore what is needed today as well as for future generations.
