AVP Liberation Workshop


Monday, May 22, 2017 - 9:00am to Wednesday, May 24, 2017 - 4:00pm


5 Longfellow Park
Cambridge , MA


AVP Basic is a prerequisite for this experiential AVP workshop. The workshop begins the first day with inclusive community building, how prejudice operates in daily communication, and finding transforming power in everyone and every moment. The second day continues by exploring the dynamics of oppression, internalized oppression, how old hurts create aspirations for privilege, and how to rely on transforming power in the simplicity of direct relationships. The last day explores experimenting with relying on transforming power to guide our decisions and lives, experience the liberty of conscience, and then reflect on the whole and close. 

Facilitated by Nadine Hoover, AVP-NY and AVP-Indonesia; and Tom Martin, AVP-Texas.

8:30 a.m., tea and coffee
