Facing the implicit biases of growing up of in a society with systemic racism is uncomfortable, but mindfulness is a powerful tool to allow us to turn towards this discomfort. This workshop offers a brief introduction to educating yourself about white supremacy, racism, and what it means to be anti-racist.
By no means do we think a 90-minute workshop is going to solve this challenging issue. Like mindfulness, it’s a life-long journey that requires commitment. For those wanting to take a deeper dive in becoming anti-racist, depending upon interest, a more extensive program will be offered in the fall 2021.
Personal Note from the Teacher:
As a white woman who’s had the experience of living with white privilege, even with decades of cultural humility training, I was still quite ignorant of the depths of racial harm until I started my anti-racism journey three years ago. I understand you don’t want to feel guilty, to feel like you’re doing it wrong, or to say the wrong thing. My goal is to help you understand yourself as a racialized being so you can be more fully embodied and present with people who may not look like you. I am committed to anti-racism, and welcome you to join me on this journey.
