Healing Roots facilitates a discussion every month for our Learning Community at the Midtown Global Market in South Minneapolis at 920 East Lake Street. Participants at each meeting pick the topic and the date for the next meeting. (We have found that choosing one regular day of the week always leaves someone out, so the day of the week varies.) Everyone is welcome. For some topics, we invite people to do some research beforehand to share, but that is not a prerequisite. There is no charge for attending.
We choose topics on modern European American culture or whiteness, particularly to build our skills at facilitating discussions and educating others about what needs to be transformed for an equitable, just, and healthy society, We may also choose topics to learn about our root cultures and draw resources from them to replace whiteness, for health and healing, and to add richness and meaning to our lives.
