Unity's next artist in residence Marcus Young 楊墨 invites you to try the movement-based art form he and others created. Don’t You Feel It Too? (DYFIT) is a liberatory practice of transforming the self while taking action in the world. Anyone can do it. Participants feel stress relief, connection, and new belonging. It's free and offered four days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday) through the end of October. More dates will be available in November.
Try it in person outdoors (while it's still nice) or online. DYFIT embraces the theme of Embodied Practice for Racial Healing and offers racially caucused spaces as well as an open practice for anyone. Each session is around 60-75 minutes. CLICK HERE for details and sign up.
Don’t You Feel It Too? is a dynamic form that draws from mindfulness practices, physical exercise, street protests, and dance. Participants listen to their own music moving freely, bravely. Move for exercise and stress relief. Move for liberation and the common good. The world needs your resilience, your daring, your movement, now more than ever.

Beloved Community Staff Team
The Beloved Community Staff Team (BCST) strengthens and coordinates Unity’s antiracism and multicultural work, and provides opportunities for congregants and the church to grow into greater intercultural competency. We help the congregation ground itself in the understanding of antiracism and multiculturalism as a core part of faith formation. We support Unity’s efforts to expand our collective capacity to imagine and build the Beloved Community. Here, we share the stories of this journey — the struggles, the questions, and the collaborations — both at Unity and in the wider world.
The current members of the Beloved Community Staff Team include Rev. Kathleen Rolenz, Rev. KP Hong, Barbara Hubbard, Drew Danielson, Laura Park, Rev. Karen Gustafson, Angela Wilcox, Pauline Eichten, and Erika Sanders.
