Exploring Embodied White Supremacy Culture

Exploring Embodied White Supremacy Culture

from 150.00

In this 6 week group we will be exploring the ways that the characteristics of white supremacy culture live in our bodies. This group will integrate movement, mindfulness, connecting with others, self-compassion and challenge to support us to first build capacity to engage with difficult material and then delve into perfectionism, sense of urgency, rationalism, binary thinking and individualism. We will also be exploring how to expand into embodying the antidotes of these characteristics and begin reimaging what whiteness could be. This work is highly informed by the book My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem, Mindful of Race by Ruth King, and White Fragility and What it Means to be White by Robin DiAngelo. This group is an affinity space for white folks. This is to limit unnecessary harm to Black, Indigenous People of Color as we are learning and growing.

20% of the proceeds of this course will be redirected to Black Lives Matter.

I am working with Reynelda Jones and Jessica Bratt to advise me on this course.

We will meet in the Eastown neighborhood of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The building is not wheelchair accessible; there are 9 steps to get from the door to the office on the 2nd floor. Gendered bathrooms are on the first floor (down the stairs.)

This group will meet on Wednesday evenings in person October 16- November 20, 6:30-8:30pm
