We do not provide refunds, nor can we add, change, or transfer members once your application has been approved and payment received.

  • Note: Submission of your application and payment acknowledges that racial affinity group members agree and will adhere to this policy. No exceptions, please!

Course Prerequisite: 

Yes! Complete Mindful of Race 101.

This introductory course deepens your understanding of your racial conditioning, establishes a common language for engagement among group members, creates a solid foundation for mindful inquiry, and supports a more graceful transition into our year of learning (and unlearning) together. Further, the framework presented in this course is reinforced throughout the year supporting a shift from information to embodiment. 

A 10% discount is offered if you purchase Brave Space and Mindful of Race 101 as a Bundle! 

We also encourage you to meet with your racial affinity group members prior to starting the training to get acquainted, share commitment, and schedule your monthly meetings for the year. Scheduling in advance supports group commitment and stability. 

Monthly Commitment: Your racial affinity group may meet physically, virtually, or a combination of in-person and online. Each participant should be willing to commit to the year-long program, including pre-requisites and meeting assignments. Monthly commitments include: 

  1. Completing the individual assignments and reflections on the online portal (estimated at approximately 3 hour per month). You have access to the portal 24/7. 
  2. Meeting monthly with your racial affinity group (estimated at 3 hours per month).
  • Note: If you have 4 members in your racial affinity group, you should plan to meet for 1.5 hours each month. If you have 8 members in your racial affinity group, you should plan to meet for 3 hours per month. Group facilitators may modify this schedule.

Schedule your meetings for the year: A powerful indicator of group commitment is to schedule your monthly meetings for the entire year. In this way, busy people can plan accordingly! This is useful to have in place prior to applying to the program, as your group will want to begin and end this program at the same time. 

  • Note: The Brave Space program is designed to nurture group commitment, growth, and cohesion. For this reason, we ask that you and/or your organization feel "reasonably" confident with your commitment to this work and this process prior to registering in this program.

Apply: Your racial affinity group is to submit one application representing your group. Organizations sending multiple groups should submit one application for each affinity group. The Designated Coordinator (DC) submits the application on the group’s behalf.

Approval: The Mindful of Race Institute reviews your application, approves it, and sends confirmation to each participant with payment details.

Pay: Payment should be made within 5 days of application approval. Paying at the same time allows you to begin the program at the same time. The Designated Coordinater should follow-up with each member to ensure payment so that all affinity group members may access and begin the course together.
