Participate in a variety of embodiment exercises to increase your empathy in community. Together, we will practice the power of the pause, identify/develop an internal resource, & activate our soul nerve. This is not mindfulness(which is great); it is learning how to perceive & listen to your body. Integrate this medicine & nourishment into your daily self-care practice. When we hold affection, care, & esteem for our own body it is easier to do that for other beings' bodies. Bring lotion/oil.
Ever freeze or flee conversations about white supremacy? Which white spaces do you need to have conscious conversations to dismantle racism in your life? Together, via role plays & visualizations we will actively listen and consciously speak with each other to reflect on unearned privilege, to move beyond collusion in oppressive acts, share stories of pain & struggle, & kindly but directly unravel white supremacy. Learn how to lean into discomfort to be better at creating brave space/talks.
