Embodied Allyship: Embodied Be-ing for Authentic Do-ing
Time & Location
About the Event
Welcome Back!! This 8-week course has been designed as a next step for Allies who completed our Mindful Allyship Intro Course from Cohorts 1-2. Embodied Allyship is an opportunity to continue our development toward skillful BE-ing and empowered DO-ing in the work of Racial Healing. Participants will explore their individual racial identities and the sensibilities required to become productive allies. Live Zoom classes will include affinity group work, practice with anti-racist tools, as well as exercises to heal and deepen embodiment, increasing the capacity for forgiveness, com-passion and empathy. Content will include more in-depth learning to develop racial literacy and strengthen the ability to productively disrupt systemic whiteness. At a time when division has sent people scrambling to their safe affinity spaces, this course is the place where participants of all races are lovingly held and coached through the often uncomfortable work of looking through the eyes of the other.
8-Week Course Schedule September 23 - November 11, 2020 Wednesdays @ 4pm (PST), 6pm (CST), 7pm (EST) REMEMBER - COHORT 1 OR 2 OF OUR MINDFUL ALLYSHIP INTRO COURSE IS A PRE-REQUISITE FOR ENROLLMENT IN THIS EMBODIED 8 WEEK EXPERIENCE
