Racial Healing Allies – Mindful Allyship
February 9, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - March 2, 2021 @ 5:30 pm UTC+0
In this live, online e-course, we will deep-dive into the inner work of racial healing. We will investigate how racism operates in us and through us, explore the systemic nature of racial oppression, and develop racial literacy for more effective engagement on this difficult topic. We will incorporate readings from leading racial justice advocates. Throughout this intellectually and emotionally rigorous course, mindfulness, meditation, and a variety of other healing exercises will sustain us throughout our work. Participants will engage in deep conceptual learning, interactive exercises, personal reflection, and dedicated small group exploration. Join us to become an empowered racial healing ally in your school, organization, community, and beyond. You will be provided with an e-workbook; you will be asked to purchase a journal for the course. With successful course completion, you will receive an anti-bias training certificate and the option to earn continuing education units from two organizations offering credits for a modest fee (CEU’s). NOTE: This course is designed to hold a shared container for all of us; it is not an affinity course. To support “affinity-based” work that is conducive in racial healing, there is an optional 30-minute gathering space directly after each session for those choosing to engage in this way. There is no set-agenda or new content prepared for this 30 minute gathering.
