An Historic Workshop

An exciting, historic workshop happened last September in Morocco! [See previous two articles.]

Many languages were spoken, and every class was interpreted into Arabic. We were almost all People of the Global Majority. The new Community in Marrakech is female, male, young, old, Indigenous, Arab, and of different class backgrounds. They welcomed us with open arms, and their warmth and openness set a wonderful tone for our three days together.

As a non-Muslim Arab-heritage woman, it was a huge contradiction [to distress] to be invited and welcomed “home” to North Africa. I loved hearing so much Arabic and could cry for a lifetime just thinking about it. As a USer I am humbled by how much we have to learn and how lucky we are to be connected to such accepting and wise global Communities.
