Event Description
February 4: Introductions and Personal Racial Identity March 4: Historical Racism & American FoundationsApril 1: Contemporary Institutional RacismMay 6: Seeing Racism in the World Around UsJune 3: Applying our Spiritual Practice for EnduranceJuly 1: Going Forth, Commitments to Resistance This practice group provides a space specifically for white and white-adjacent people, where we can do the work of cultivating self-awareness. Whiteness keeps our spirits small. It prevents us from showing up lovingly in our relationships, justly in community spaces, and equitably in professional life. Utilizing White Awake curriculum that integrates historical, economic, and political analysis together with social, emotional and mindfulness tools, we offer this six-part practice series. In each session, we seek to facilitate the healing work to re-connect with parts of ourselves lost in the harmful process of learning to be “white.”  White Awake provides caucus spaces where participants can develop self knowledge in a focused, supportive environment. We explore in this way with an understanding that our own liberation is intimately bound to one another. We caucus to wake up from the trance of whiteness. We come together in healing work, so that we can do our part to dismantle the oppressive systems that surround us.
