Are you a white person wanting to unpack the harmful ways white supremacy is embedded in your body, mind and heart?
Are you looking for an embodied approach to racial and social justice?
Are you looking for a spiritual community where oppression and privilege can be addressed with compassion and honesty?
This yoga class is for white people to begin or continue the work or looking into the ways whiteness is conditioned within us. We will use Shelly Tochluk’s Witnessing Whiteness as a guide for our work, and each month will explore one chapter.
In this class we will:
have a discussion around the conditioning of whiteness and how yoga can be a supportive tool to navigate looking at our conditioning with fierce compassion
practice tools of embodiment to understand how this lives not only in our psyches, but also in our physical bodies
meditate to understand how the mind is affected by whiteness, as well as how the mind can be a tool to counteract whiteness with awareness and kindness
share an action we plan to commit to in order to support our desire for racial justice in our communities
Friday, March 23 from 6:30-8pm
