What is on your bookshelf? How do you transform knowledge into wisdom? Parcon Resilience is a dynamic and reflective approach to Parcon that enables movers to cultivate embodied wisdom toward a more just and inclusive society. The 'bookshelf' is by no means complete, it is an entry point for us to engage in dialogue about writings, media and self/collective discoveries. The primary goal being to deepen our relationship to ourselves -to know what we want, to each other - to learn to move forward with respect, and to our world - to strategize in our collective mind.

"Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks’ humanity, our contributions to this society, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression." -from the BLM website.
