The Boundary Work Mastermind

Your boundaries are for you. Let’s hold them, together.

The fact is that injustice in this world is very, very real. No matter what kind of privilege we hold or how marginalized we are - we all have witnessed it at varying degrees. And in one way or another - we all know what it’s like to be bullied by it. But that doesn’t mean we cannot overcome it. We can and we will.

That doesn’t mean that we have to become complacent in the face of being treated like we don’t matter. That doesn’t mean that we have to look the other way when we see it in our everyday lives.

We have a role. We have a place. We have a calling.

We are here to soar. We are here to become the most whole human beings that we can be. We are here to be free.

But the thing about learning to soar - is that we have to unlearn the idea that a boundaryless existence is the key to our freedom. It’s not.

We have to set boundaries with injustice. We have to say “no” to racism, patriarchy, sizeism, etc., We have to put our figurative hands onto the ground and draw the line - and we need community to be supported in that work.

We need community to celebrate the fullness of who we are as we stick up for ourselves and others who do not have the power, the capacity, the privilege to set the boundary. That’s called Boundary Work™.

The holiday season is here and with it comes The Boundary Work Mastermind™.

This Boundary Work Mastermind™ is a three-month program for folks looking to take that next step in identifying, setting, and holding to their boundaries.

But what is Boundary Work?

Drawing boundaries is the process of finding of our courage. Holding boundaries is the process of keeping it.

Boundaries help us build and maintain relationships that are important for encouraging us to unlearn harmful patterns of thinking and mythologies around unhealthy power dynamics.

Boundaries set us free.

Without them, we don’t have the tools we need to stand up for ourselves and others when we encounter injustice - and in the world we live in; a world that’s becoming increasingly aware of the ways our social relationships have a major impact on our overall well-being, who we are, and who we choose to be - having the right resources to communicate what we will and will not do - is critical.

Last year, I developed the Boundary Work™ course for people like you looking to begin their boundary journey. The sold-out course was so successful that I will be offering it again as an introduction to Boundary Work at the end of this year. Course participants practiced their newfound peer based frameworks and Boundary Work Method™ for protecting their physical, mental, and emotional capacity, but after the course ended they wanted more.

This is that next step.

In October, I’m bringing together 10 folks who are looking for mutual support and accountability to keep them on track with transforming, refining, and sustaining their boundaries in their personal and professional lives.

Access practical, context-driven examples to help you learn how

We develop our boundary culture at a very early age. How old were you when your parents sat you down to have the boundaries talk? For many of us the answer is never. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t develop our own set of core beliefs around what it meant or did not mean to set effective boundaries with others in our lives. For many of us in this world who deal with various forms of oppression and injustice every day - the idea of prioritizing our needs can feel nearly impossible. But it isn’t. That’s where unlearning comes in. We can’t do this work without seeing it modeled. So, join me for this course and gain access to real-life examples from my experiences with learning how to set boundaries, setting them effectively, and holding to them.

This is for you if:

  • you have already taken my Boundary Work 101 course or you have already been on your boundary journey and are looking to get to that next level.

  • you’re looking for a community of practice and peer frameworks that you can work with and use in all aspects of your life

  • you’re looking for language beyond the introduction to boundary setting that helps you hold space when you’re dealing with challenging people in challenging situations

Join me for the 3-month mastermind of Boundary Work (starting October 1, 2019).

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • 3 month program (October 2 - January 8)

  • Monthly (4 in total) 90-minute calls *all will be recorded and shared with participants at the end of each meeting*

  • 1 monthly 1:1 call (4 in total)

  • 1 private moderated Facebook group offering resources and interviews with bold, daring thought leaders on boundary issues that are important to you

  • The Boundary WorkBook™ with weekly prompts for mapping your personal boundary work and celebrating your growth and achievements.

  • Open forum for you to unpack content presented during the group meetings, ask questions and share narratives in a brave, collaborative space.

This is what people are saying about Boundary Work™:

“I cannot thank you enough for sharing such incredible tools that have had such an immediate impact on me. This is helping me strengthen my new foundation. It is helping me uncover who I truly am.” - Lauren

“I have found this to be so useful to looking at how I set boundaries. I can feel a deep shift almost on a subconscious level on this. I have noticed subtle shifts in a few conversations with friends that left me feeling I have more room to breathe.” - Jen

Here is what you’ll learn:

  • How to understand the difference between being held accountable and being emotionally abused.

  • How to navigate conversations around race, gender, patriarchy, and class with family, friends, clients, and colleagues as women, WOC, non-binary people, fat folks, queer folks, and more while setting and holding to your boundaries in a spirit of harm reduction and community care.

  • How to be boundaried and honor others when they set boundaries with us.

  • How to identify the most common signs of narcissism, gaslighting, and other manipulative behaviors in our relationships and what to do about them.

  • How to use verbal and non-verbal language to draw clear and assertive boundaries on the internet, at work, at the dinner table, and in other public spaces.

  • How to identify, set, and hold to our boundaries through a lens of anti-racism and anti-oppression.

Gain lessons from an established boundary worker

My name is Bunny McKensie Mack and I am the creator and founder of the Boundary Work™ Program. I’m an anti-oppression consultant, coach, copywriter, and visual artist leveraging the reach of pop culture and satire to envision a world without white supremacy and genderphobia. As the Executive Director of Art + Feminism, I led a global team of activists, artists, and organizers working to correct skewed and biased content about marginalized communities on the internet.  

I have two linguistics degrees in Francophone language and literature and Hispanic Luso-Brazilian Language and Literature from the University of Chicago and I’m currently pursuing a double Masters degree in Anthropology and Sociology from Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, South Africa. I’ve also been an interpreter and translator for over 10 years; so I’m no stranger to drawing lines and setting expectations so that my boundaries are honored - like they deserve to be.

I consult with for profit and non-profit organizations to develop cultures of accountability that dismantle racism and patriarchy at the individual, interpersonal, and institutional level. My work has been featured in NowThis News, Refinery29, The Guardian, Artsy, Afropunk, The New York Times, Pop Sugar, It Gets Better, Artsy, ArtNews, Wear Your Voice, Bubblegum Club, and  El País.
