the vivid grove Racial Justice Fellowship
The vivid grove program offers three Racial Justice Fellowships – with preferences to QTBIPOC. Fellowship participants take several workshops throughout the fall to spring season, 2019 - 2020, and will be invited to figure out what is germane/how it feels right to participate, based on the offerings of the season, and create an agreement with Margit for the year.
The Fellowship exists so that the vivid grove can grow into deeper inclusivity, equity, and consciousness. It carries an intention to cultivate a place to deepen in solidarity, to offer teachings to those who might not otherwise have the capacity to attend, and for MG to further learn how to support collective liberation.

The vivid grove program is a synthesis of movement arts, Chinese energetics, collective learning, and creative research. The courses access these different streams to support vitality and exuberance as the basis for artistic development and an engaged, embodied life. The courses are influenced by the brilliance of the elements, seasons, practice, and our unique human signatures, — aka human nature culture. If you are interested in the full season or full year of practices, get in touch.
Racial Justice Fellowship
The vivid grove program offers three Racial Justice Fellowships – with preferences to immigrant ppl and QT/BIPOC. Perhaps you would be interested in applying. This would enable you to take several workshops throughout the fall to spring season, 2019 - 2020. You will be invited to figure out what is germane/how it feels right for you to participate, based on the offerings of the season, and create an agreement with Margit for the year.
This is built so that this work can grow into deeper inclusivity, equity, and consciousness. The Fellowship carries an intention to cultivate the vivid grove as a place to deepen in solidarity, to offer teachings to those who might not otherwise feel the capacity to attend, and for MG to further learn how to support collective liberation and challenge supremacy in hir teaching and offerings.
As part of the Fellowship, Fellowship participants will meet with MG a minimum of twice between now and May, to have conversations in reflections of the work; will meet with the Fellowship as a group, both in shared inquiry about what came from the workshops, what benefits and what challenges, and for collective imagining; Fellwoship participants will be required to give a written reflection to be completed by the end of the Fellowship, which can also include visual / audio / and creative approaches.
