Last year I presented on the four roles of social change in a framework of living systems theory (David Stroh) and adrienne marie brown's Emergent Strategy. This year I would like to actually run the exercise that I presented about with the addition of mandala principle (Judith Simmer-Brown). The mandala practice walks people through an embodied contemplative journey that integrates a standing meditation practice with a spectrogram exercise making out each person's relationship to social change (the four roles) as well as their positionality to power. The center of the mandala is the locus of power and the edge are the margins farthest away from power. The mandala practice is something we can take home and utilize in social justice communities and classrooms to have an embodied collective experience of our organizing and resistance.
