Below is the coursework for each week of your restorative justice coaching. If you have any questions or need assistance please feel free to contact Jasmine via the contact form.
Grieving the Losses 1
We are not taught how to deal with our grief. This week's course work prepares us to acknowledge what systems of oppression have stolen from us, how our most meaningful relationships have been impacted, and preparing pathways for grief.
Establishing Safety 2
We cannot do transformational work when we do not feel safe. Our bodies and brains are too busy trying to fight or flight. This week's course work helps us to explore what helps us feel safe, what safe person looks like, and why safety is foundational to grieving and moving forward into revolutionary change.
Messages About Me 3
We learned a lot from systems of harm about who we are and who others are. This week's course work is about untangling the false perceptions, myths, and over exaggerations of self that lure us into acting out domination and violence on ourselves, on those we love, and on our communities at large.
In order to confront systems of oppression and experience personal and collective restoration... we must FEEL the feelings.
We are moving from our head to our heart in this next assignment. What we believe about ourselves and our participation in systems of oppression matters.
