Sliding scale $125-$225
In this workshop, we will use mindfulness and somatic awareness practices, along with anti-oppression frameworks, to build our capacity to hold the tension of self-compassion and responsibility. We will resource our nervous systems to uncover and begin to heal the pain of whiteness, so we can become more resilient, integrated, and transformative allies and accomplices in the movement for collective liberation.
