A deep dive into soul-nourishing and mind-opening resources, worship, and personal conversations to support you in the communal work of dismantling racism.   

Thirty congregants, your ministers, your director of children & youth programming, and two children’s programming staff participated in this program last fall. Now you can too!

Sign up for the fall Online program before Aug. 14 and receive the early bird 10% discount!

Deadline to register is August 31.

There is a generous sliding-scale and scholarship program. No one should feel they cannot take the program due to financial hardship.

The program this fall (phase one, called “Within”) runs mid-September through mid-December, and includes:

  • Individual study of videos and readings, accompanied by reflection prompts  
  • conversations with a “critical friend” chosen by the participant
  • Bi-weekly small group conversations in a “learning pod” with other UUs across the continent 
  • Larger, monthly, ‘meaning making sessions,’ facilitated by Beloved Conversations staff 

The “Within” work is different for White folks and for Black, Indigenous and other People of Color and will be done entirely in race-based caucuses.  

“…this is a program for Unitarian Universalists who are seeking to embody racial justice as a spiritual practice.  We believe that we are here to heal the impact of racism on our lives in order to get free together. Beloved conversations is intended to be a tool in your toolbox, for you as an individual, and [as] a part of a congregation, to eradicate white supremacy, to work to become anti-racist, and to make our faith a welcoming place for everyone.”  Rev. Kierstin Homblette Allen, co-creator of Beloved Conversations
