Are you Ripe for Support?


Waking up together in a racial affinity group is not insignificant. The intimacy of a small group makes the emotions and vulnerability more intense. Inevitably, our experiences will fluctuate from being aware that we are unskilled, to having what we are unaware of pointed out, to noticing and even being surprised by our own goodness. When we add the shame and embarrassment that leaks out when we discover what we don’t know, or when we say or do something that exposes our imperfections, ignorance, aversion, or selfishness, we may want to withdraw from the group to avoid embarrassment and discomfort. When you find it challenging to examine these concerns within yourself or within your group, you may want to seek Racial Affinity Group Coaching. 

Racial Affinity Group Coaching provides zoom support to self-organized racial affinity groups following the 12-month guideline offered in the Mindful of Race book or Brave Space program (RAGDP). Coaching supports groups in ripening racial literacy, understanding and reducing emotional activation, increasing inner stability, and strengthening group experiences of belonging.
