_Justice is What Love Looks Like in Public_ These words of Cornell West will provide us a stepping off point to engage in conversation (and inquiry) regarding the connection between our personal spiritual/erotic, healing and transformational work and the mandate that we play a role in the transformation of our world. We will use meditation, poetry and conversation to explore how hot activism can be.
