A revolutionary pop-up learning experience for revolutionary humans.
Your coursework involves 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
Perfectionism is destructive. It fuels white supremacy conditioning; it debilitates our sense of self-worth; it creates physical stress and turmoil in our bodies; it disrupts organizational culture; it harms us and the people we most care about.
No matter what, you're going to get a provocative learning experience that pushes you to think differently about UNlearning perfectionism.
The question is whether you'd like to be held for 1 week, 1 month, or in a full immersion experience that incorporates deep coaching and deep community.
1 WEEK of revolutionary, pop-up learning. Whether you've been doing the inner work of social change for decades or are just approaching perfectionism for the first time, this week of learning will take you deeper, provoke you, and offer tools and guidance to support your learning.
1 MONTH of revolutionary, pop-up learning. If 1 week of learning just isn't enough, you can extend your access to laura , to resources, and to learning for the entire month of October. You'll get weekly extended support for the full month to take your work even deeper.
10 spots available; Oct 5-Nov 31
The 2-month immersion experience is a custom coaching AND community experience. This is the most affordable way to get sustained coaching with laura + access to 9 other humans also doing deep, profound work around UNlearning perfectionism.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This mentions 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 revolutionary lab is a multi-racial, multi-generational space.
What's the difference between the Pop Up PLUS and Pop Up IMMERSION ? Why does the cost change significantly?
The immersion is a coaching-based learning experience. It involves nearly 8 additional hours of coaching time in a small group setting. It also involves 1:1 support with laura. The Pop Up and Pop Up Plus are direct learning experiences with guided reflection support, but not a coaching program.
Are there scholarships?
Yes. If you have systemic or financial constrain, your tuition for any program is automatically adjusted by 20%. There are additional scholarships available.
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.
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 things so many of us in social change struggle with, like Imposter Syndrome and tying our sense of worth to our productivity.
When is the live workshop and the live office hour?
Tuesday October 6th, from 4:30-7:30pm EST. You'll get a welcome and guided electronic resources Monday, we'll have our workshop Tuesday, and the office hour is from 12-1:30pm EST on Thursday October 8th. On Friday, we'll email you all the recording links. For those continuing to the PLUS or IMMERSION programs, you'll get a schedule of calls when you register.
How is the IMMERSION different from How To Hold & Be Held, or The Cadre?
The immersion is a deep dive exclusively into the topic of the pop up. It's similar to other programs that laura runs in that it is coaching and community based, but the other programs involve a wider range of topics and run for at least 3 months.
Is the group space located on Facebook?
Nope. If you are participating in the IMMERSION program, you'll get access to a private community group and to laura 1:1 electronically on a platform that will not use your private information like Facebook does. We will be using Mighty Networks to host our space.
