Each of the 5 Fierce Vulnerability sessions will include Large Group and Home Group elements. Large Group means everyone together. Home groups are smaller groups who will work together throughout the conference.

Each session includes a mixture of activities which explore the interconnection between personal transformation and nonviolent direct action. Our hope is to give participants a taste of the great potential built into this interconnection – a potential to transform ourselves and to contribute to the transformation of the culture and tone of nonviolent activism today.

Through a combination of interactive group activities, role-plays, small group and paired sharing, self-reflection, and a few short lecture segments, Fierce Vulnerability aims to deepen participants’ understanding and experience of the power of authenticity, self-awareness and healing, and about how to bring those elements into direct action spaces.

Using a variety of learning modalities, participants will be invited to explore and share about aspects of themselves and their lives which they would likely not anticipate thinking or sharing about in relation to the work of social change or direct action. This is new and exciting territory! We’re experimenting with transforming movement culture by deepening our capacity to be real with ourselves and with one another.

No previous experience is necessary to participate, and each participant gets to decide when to stretch beyond their comfort zone, and to what extent.
