Group Pie Bakes
This facilitated pie baking experience creates connection while opening the doors for deeper compassion and understanding. Groups bake together and learn about the “baketivist” history of the sweet potato comfort pie, while exploring issues of cultural foods, identity, resistance, and/or customized topics. Pies can be made to honor someone doing good work in the community, or to give a much-needed lift to someone who is struggling. Pie bakes are also a wonderful way to honor Black culture and convey a spirit of inclusion and affirmation within your organization. Inquiry form.
In her book Story Circle Stories, Rose McGee describes story circles as an “ancient approach to educating, celebrating, and solving issues.” This transformative experience can help center and amplify missing perspectives in your organization, and create deep understanding in the way that has always worked best for humans — through telling and sharing stories. An experienced facilitator ensures that story circles are inclusive, safe and positive. Welcome your group into a deeper sense of belonging and compassion with story circles. Inquiry form.
