A Cacao Facilitated Retreat to See and Be Seen
January 11-18, 2020
Join retired Attorney, Professor, and Activist Dr. Conkolene Michael Gray as we connect to the deep history of the Civil Rights Movement in the South. Our journey will be begin in Atlanta, GA and continue on to Montgomery, Birmingham, & Selma, AL where we will figuratively and literally cross famous rivers.
This experience will help us bridge the gap between activism and spirituality remembering that we can both trust in the unfolding of a divine plan while taking action to create an anti-oppressive, anti-racist world. Together we will take this opportunity to connect with the reality of our past while unpacking ways that we can be present, consciously and intentionally engaging in healing and social justice. We will sit with it all... the wounds, the darkness, the violence AND the transformation, the lightness and the inspiration.
This journey will take us to historical and educational sites such as, The King Center, National Memorial for Peace & Justice, Legacy Museum, Rosa Parks Museum, 16th St. Baptist Church, National Civil Rights Museum, and Voting Rights Museum.
While moving along the civil rights trail Michelle & Michael Jewell will guide us through gentle movement, breath work and meditation helping us tune into the physical sensations of the body, thoughts in the mind and feelings and emotions rising up in the heart.
To be best prepared, fully engaged and present while on this very full 6 day, 5 night journey we will provide a reading and watch list and come together virtually, for discussion in the months leading up to our gathering in the south.
Immerse yourself in yoga, meditation, camping, music,
nature, good food, and fellowship, at Terrapin Hill Farm in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. Learn more at the festival site.
RETREAT FULL! Reach out to be added to the wait list as we are in the creation process for future retreats!
“Although the tale of human experience is certainly universal, it contains unique elements for each us and we continue the art of storytelling, both verbally and nonverbally, each and every day. While some stories are sweeter than others, all long for the benefit and necessity of a witness, for a witness assures us that our stories are heard, contained, and transcend time; for it can be said that one is never truly forgotten when one is shared and carried in the hearts of others.” - Michael Gregory
Over the course of 8 days we will deepen our skill and practice of radical curiosity, radical vulnerability, and radical honesty so that we may see and be seen by our partners, retreat space holders and fellow co-creators.
