WORKSHOPS

Day-long workshops for white-identified folks

to dive deeply & courageously

into exploring topics of racism, oppression, & privilege. 

What to Expect

  • Deep connection and relating to people across identities about oppression and liberation

  • Self-inquiry and witnessing others in deep inquiry

  • Collaborative, innovative, and participatory group work and conversation.

  • Intimate, deep, and thoughtful work in pairs/dyads.

  • Being physical & in close proximity with others (consent-based; no intensive exercise, at max we will be        doing light yoga stretches that will be made accessible for everyone in the room)

  • Expanding your ability to sit with discomfort

  • Using your voice in various ways to express and discharge emotions

  • Learning to more deeply hold Black stories, pain, and resilience
