Resilience for Liberation – January 24, 12pm PST

January 24, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm PST

We get free together

Join us for this free, 75-minute workshop – happening at the intersection of personal healing and collective change.

Discover how you can:

  • Stop over-responding to stress triggers
  • Develop deeper self-compassion and self-trust
  • Create and hold healthy boundaries
  • Cultivate more support and stability in your life
  • Creatively solve problems both big and small

Let’s get free together.

Too often, individuals are blamed for the failings of systems. Resilience for Liberation challenges this narrative; teaching us how we can simultaneously take care of ourselves, hold systems accountable, and develop the wisdom and skills to change the systems causing us harm.

I want to be resilient, and I want the world to be soft and gentle.” – Nkem Ndefo

Resilience for Liberation introduces you to a framework for healing and change that…

  1. Acknowledges the family, cultural, economic, and political systems that are causing stress, trauma, and isolation for so many;
  2. Empowers you to set healthy boundaries and make resilient moves.

You’ll learn how to be more compassionate with yourself and others and how to develop a flexible strength to overcome challenges. From this safe and settled place, we are more capable of recognizing the underlying causes of stress and trauma in our lives and changing those systems of adversity.



Q: Who is Resilience for Liberation for?

A: This session is for people who want to create positive change in themselves, their families, their communities, their workplaces, and the world.

Q: What does it cost to attend Resilience for Liberation?

A: Resilience for Liberation is completely free for everyone. There is no catch. You’ll provide your email to get the Zoom link and can decide whether or not you want to join the Lumos Transforms email list.

Q: Is the session recorded?

A: No. Each session happens live on Zoom, and no recordings are provided.

Q: Can I attend more than once?

A: Sure!

Q: Who created Resilience for Liberation?

A: Resilience for Liberation was created by Nkem Ndefo, the founder of Lumos Transforms and creator of The Resilience Toolkit. The class is facilitated on a rotating schedule by Certified Facilitators of The Resilience Toolkit on staff at Lumos Transforms.

Q: Why are you doing this?

A: We believe another world is possible. And we need ideas, tools, and connection to get there. This offering is our way of illuminating the path to liberation.

Q: Is Resilience for Liberation a sales pitch for something else?

A: Nope. If you’d like to continue to learn with us following Resilience for Liberation, you can join an Introduction to The Resilience Toolkit series, but it’s an offer, not an ask. Those classes are $180/person for a 3-week series and we have a generous scholarship program. Some people join us in our weekly Practice Group program following an Intro Series. And some folks go on to pursue Certification. That’s about it!

Q: I attended Anchoring Resilience, took an Intro series, or am already Certified, should I still attend?

A: Absolutely. Resilience for Liberation is a completely new offering. It builds on Anchoring Resilience and distills the framework presented in an Intro series. Folks who are already Certified will gain from the clarity in this session and can use this to improve their facilitation and outreach.

Q: Can my group attend Resilience for Liberation?

A: Yes! We love seeing groups in our sessions. Sign up with your family, friends, co-workers, allies, etc. If you’d like to attend in a private session, please reach out to us at
