Connection, Rupture, Repair: The Trauma-Informed Beloved Community

August 24, 2022 @ 4:30 am - 12:00 pm


Connection, Rupture, Repair: The Trauma-Informed Beloved Community

Nov 4-6, 2022

An in-person weekend workshop with Windy Cooler supporting Quakers in exploring rupture and repair.

Friday at 4:30pm through Sunday at noon.

$495/private room; $450/shared room; $375/commuter. Cap of 20.

The beloved community calls out for connection. We may think that connection will be threatened by ruptures to it, ruptures we must prevent as leaders. However, in the dynamic space of rupture real connection is made possible – because of the essential work of repair. Being trauma-informed in our leadership enables communities to face the hard work of justice, discernment, care, and day to day life through attention to what it takes to welcome, not avoid, rupture and then tenderly repair connection.

This weekend workshop is for leaders, clerks, and change-makers who want to support their communities in embracing truth-telling, healing wrongs, and building environments of safety, memory, and reconnection. Participants will learn how to use key ideas in trauma studies in corporate spiritual development through an environment of respect and creativity, deep discernment, and informative content.

Material will include key ideas from polyvagal and attachment theories as well as the psychiatrist and trauma studies pioneer Judith Herman. We will explore how being trauma-informed equips us to build a container for uncomfortable truth-telling and safer environments that encourage curiosity and collaboration. Participants can expect opportunities for personal and collaborative discernment, play and creativity, and invitations to build our own capacities to hold disruption in our hearts with courage.
