There are three course prerequisites to Brave Space:

  1. Complete Mindful of Race 101
  2. Read Mindful of Race
  3. Complete A Beginner’s Guide to Meditating with Race

These prerequisites serve to deepen your understanding of your racial conditioning, establish a common language for engagement among group members, create a solid foundation for mindful inquiry, and support a more graceful transition into our year of learning (and unlearning) together. Further, the concepts presented in these prerequisites are reinforced throughout the year supporting a shift from information to embodiment.

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.
