WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE IN MY SKIN – HEALING RACISM TOGETHER is a two-part Series:
Part 1 – the Shadow, June 19, 2022
Part 2 – the Path of Yearning (TBD)
This event is dedicated to deep racial healing. Diving into history, uncovering atrocities and how societal structures have developed, looking at our mythologies and real-life experiences, economic stratification, the creation of the “other “through racism and skin color, religious doctrine mandates that have promoted, manifest destiny / papal bulls. We contend that through love, we can create a better world together.
We call forth a partnership of the heart. Together we can stand in vulnerability and strength, and we can usher in the new world. The process starts here with us. Calling forth natural order, tenderness, justice, alignment, and peace. With: Ceremony / Wisdom / Participation / Non-Violent Communication
