Thursday 5th November 2020

12PM PT / 2PM CT/ 3 PM ET / 8 PM GMT

Shirley McAlpine and Ray Fisher are offering this TIME TO ELEVATE - PART 2 Three Hour Master Class.  We know that promises and commitments to moving forward and standing with Black and Brown people only work if they are followed with sustained action. We have been overwhelmed with how popular Time to Elevate masterclass has been which speaks to the desire for change that so many of you are feeling. Part 2 is for you if you have completed Time to Elevate Part 1 and you want to keep moving forward to ensure you

  • keep learning about yourself and about Black and Brown people and the impact of systemic racism
  • take the actions that you promised yourself and your learning partner you will do
  • have a place to answer the many questions about where to put your focus and attention, now that you are aware of all the possible actions you can take each day - and how to stay in action. And now when you do  take action how do you deal with the various reactions and start to grow in confidence as an ally.
  • keep moving forward in your development as outlined in the Helm and ERA model in Time to Elevate Part 1.
  • Follow through on your commitment to actually do something daily in your own life to see the change we all desperately want to see.


 In TIME TO ELEVATE Part 2  we are offering a longer masterclass with the intention to deepen the areas in terms of the ERA model and HELM model with you, more opportunities to continue the guided learning, supporting you on taking actions and helping you stay on track. And growing in understanding yourself as an anti-racist ally. There will be significantly more Q & A time, guidance and coaching for people who are willing to do that in a group space.


We will be encouraging you to stay on track and to follow through on what your head and your heart is telling you to do in this moment.


We have kept the same price for Time to Elevate Part 2 even though it’s a longer session,  because we are committed to continuing to support you.

THS IS NOT A QUICK FIX - this is a start. It requires a willingness to learn and then act. We are working with people who want to change their actual behaviors and this master class is about that.
