About these learning modules on DVD

Recognizing that we are all great students of a culture that has reinforced inaccurate and inappropriate structures, Beyond Our Wildest Dreams: Racial Equity Learning Volume One (REL1) focuses on the history, culture and identity that maintain and reinforce the systems of racism. A resource for educators, trainers & leaders, it supports individuals in identifying those systems and structures, taking personal initiative to make changes by naming and re-framing, and developing institutional outcomes for addressing and changing the system.

Teaching literacy in the messages shaped by history, power, economics, and culture, Racial Equity Learning is a new way to deepen the conversation around race and equity. Using integral learning, World Trust Educational Services, in collaboration with leaders in the social justice movement, provides best practices to generate transformational learning and arts integration to “connect people more deeply to the world and open them to new ways of seeing (Rand Corporation, 2005).”  Through a focus on whole body learning, people learn to feel and experience their reactions, developing the emotional intelligence needed to deconstruct and integrate the structures that hold structural racism in place.

These resources can be used in sequential fashion for day-long workshops. Modules can be broken into sessions that are instructed over time, or you can use them independently to deepen work in which you are currently engaged.
