iBme’s Building Anti-Racist Community: A Daylong Mindfulness Intensive for White-identified Folx

January 30, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm UTC-8

$45

In this daylong workshop, we will explore ways that mindfulness practice can support white people who are invested in the work of anti-racism to courageously meet the conditioning of white supremacy within ourselves and communities. We will practice meditations aimed at identifying and observing the internal effects of whiteness on our bodies, hearts, and minds as well as spend time practicing inter-relational mindfulness; conversations with one another intended to prepare us for addressing racism in our daily lives. All this will be explored within the container of community, offering support and connection for this essential work of collective liberation. All levels of experience and exposure to this issue are welcome. Please come prepared to focus and feel deeply.

The sliding scale cost for this daylong retreat is $45 – $150. 20% of the proceeds will be donated to Movement for Black Lives.
