LONE ROCK RETREAT | JUNE 12 -16, 2023
Greetings Fellows! Below you will find information on how to prepare for the 2023 Race, Reflection, and Practice Towards Action Gathering taking place at Lone Rock Retreat in Bailey, Colorado. Additionally, please review Pahara’s health and safety protocols for in-person gatherings during your time at Lone Rock Retreat:
VISION & CONTEXT
Launched in 2021, the Race, Reflection, and Practice Towards Action (RRPA) program was designed for Pahara Fellows looking to deepen practices focused on personal identity, racial justice, and combating anti-blackness in the education sector. RRPA has approached this work from three levels within spaces of racial affinity: personal reflection and identity work, collaboration and practice, and exploring pathways to systemic change.
A goal of the RRPA program has always been to find meaningful ways for participants across groups to build with and learn from one another. We have also received overwhelming feedback from RRPA participants about your desire to connect in person. During our five days together at Lone Rock, we’ll engage in dialogues, learning circles, readings, and restorative practices. Our intent is to create the conditions for meaningful relationship-building and action towards racial justice and cross-group collaboration.

The initial retreat for RLP will convene the week after Easter at Lone Rock Retreat in Bailey, Colorado from April 19-21, 2022. We endeavor to combine the strengths of the Pahara leadership development approach with a Christ-centered retreat experience. A successful retreat will mean leaders have had the space to share their faith, reflect on ways to bring their faith into their work, find some sense of spiritual renewal from the time together, and initiate new relationships with other believers.
