Welcome to the August 2017 special issue on the impact of race and culture on the Work That Reconnects
In Sarah Thompson’s article on the “intersectionalization” of the Work, she clearly names how while we are all in this Great Turning together, we are in it differently. This issue speaks to some of the differences in experience. Throughout this journal you will find many references to the acronym POC. If you identify as a Person of Color living in a racialized society such as the United States, this acronym needs no definition – it has likely shaped your daily experience since birth. If this fits your experience, we hope this issue will be of benefit to you as you navigate the additional complexity of participating in a body of work that has historically been so Eurocentric and where the conditioning of society reappears in intrapersonal, interpersonal and group dynamics.
Rather than completely following the traditional spiral of the Work That Reconnects, this special issue has its own unique sections. Please read the full welcome letter from the guest editors to learn more about the contents and construction of this special issue as well as a special request to generously compensate this issue’s contributors.
