A revolutionary pop-up learning experience for revolutionary humans.
-Experiencing regular phases/patterns of burnout in your life?
-Hearing from loved ones that you 'work too hard,' or don't make enough time for your friends/chosen family?
-Feeling like there's never enough time...?
-Secretly questioning whether "work/life balance" is real or even possible in your life?
-Carrying tension and stress in your body more often than not? (Clue: Are you clenching your jaw right now, perhaps? How's your lower back? How's your sleep?)
-Struggling to remember the last time you didn't hustle/grind as a way to get important work done?
-Equating your worth with how hard you work? (Clue: If/when you're not working relentlessly, do you question your purpose, value, contribution, and impact?)-
You'll get a workshop and guided resources to take you into provocative independent learning. If you can't attend the live workshop, you'll receive video and MP3 content to fuel your skill and heart development to create change. PLUS guided resources and reflection prompts so you can continue your learning in a supported way.
Live workshops, group discussions, and community support with real issues you're grappling with. Plus, there are opportunities to do deep-dives into the topics that most resonate in a small-group learning community.
LIVE, recorded office hours so you get custom support from laura and the group. There are immersion and extension opportunities if you're looking for a fully customized, deep experience.
"Working with laura has dramatically shifted how I stand for love and justice in my life...I've developed a softer, kinder, more humanized approach to my own growth and have been building a practice of courage that is bolder, messier, and more deeply aligned with the kind of liberation and justice I'm just learning to imagine." -L.G., impossible goals
"laura is masterful at posing the questions and holding the space that allow for rigorous reflection and imagination. I walked in unable to even fathom what it could mean to set a goal from a place of wholeness and am now walking solidly on to my wildest hopes and dreams." -M.M., impossible goals
"[This pop-up] was a unique and powerful experience. My learning was deepened both through laura's brilliant teaching and coaching as well as the brilliance of the other participants. It was a gift." -B.E., impossible goals
"The community calls and weekly short homework videos in the PLUS course are still resonating deeply with me a few weeks later and have shifted how I am relating to myself, my family, and justice work." -L.R., perfectionism
"This was my first workshop with laura, and it was such a fantastic experience. I was admittedly a bit nervous going in but it was such a fantastic community and the pop up PLUS experience was so worth it. laura is amazing as a facilitator at helping you self-reflect and making you comfortable at being uncomfortable. Her brave space is well-supported and I look forward to joining her next Pop up!" -K.S., perfectionism

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When is the live workshop and the live office hour?
Tuesday August 3rd, from 4:00-7:00pm EST. You'll get a welcome note and guided electronic resources Monday 8/2, we'll have our workshop Tuesday, and the office hour is from 12-1:15pm EST on Thursday August 5th. On Friday 8/6, we'll email you all the recording links. For those continuing to the PLUS or IMMERSION programs, office hours will be weekly from 12-1pm EST on Thursdays in August.
How much do I have to participate?
It's totally up to you. We think you'll have more fun and get a lot more out of the experience if you allow yourself to fully show up. And. We know you're busy. You get recordings and electronic copies of all the materials if you can't engage live.
Are there scholarships?
Yes. If you have systemic or financial constraint, your tuition for any program is automatically adjusted by 20%. There are additional scholarships available.
What's the difference between the Pop Up PLUS and Pop Up COACHING? Why does the cost change significantly?
The immersion is a private coaching-based learning experience, one-on-one, with laura. The Pop Up and Pop Up PLUS are direct learning experiences with guided reflection support and some coaching but only in a large-group container.
Most revolution labs discuss white supremacy conditioning--is the lab only for white-identifying people?
Definitely not. We've all been socialized by oppression; we've all internalized white supremacy conditioning and its ways of being even though there are different trade-offs, consequences, traumas, and benefits depending on our identity locations. The revolution lab is a multi-racial, multi-generational space.
When and what will future topics be?
It's a secret. :-) But you should expect pop-ups to reflect common internalized manifestations of oppression, like sense of urgency or defensiveness. Plus pop-ups that connect to the things so many of us in social change struggle with, like Imposter Syndrome and tying our sense of worth to our productivity.
