Leveraging Self-Compassion to Counter White Supremacy with Roxy Manning and Sarah Peyton

June 28 @ 10:30 am - July 26 @ 12:00 pm PDT

Cost: Sliding Scale

About the Event

How can we begin to heal and transform the impacts of a white supremacist culture? What tools can we develop that help us to take an honest look at the complexity and heartbreak while supporting true accountability and change?

This 8-week class offers participants a chance to explore how self-compassion can bolster the movement towards antiracist consciousness and practices in an intertwined learning experience.

 

Event Details

Systemic racism robs everyone’s life energy and takes away everyone’s well-being. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) have centuries of exhaustion from layer upon layer of the horror that systemic racism and white supremacy have encoded in our human bodies. White folks have to find a way forward through the layers of responsibility, denial, shame, and unforgiveability of what has happened. BIPOC folks face deep challenges as they confront their own internalized oppression that can lead them to enact the same harm on others that they themselves have experienced. White people begin to grieve the loss of identity, culture, and traditional wisdom that was stripped away in order to create the caste system upon which white supremacy theory is built. How can self-compassion help all of us? How can it help us learn, how can it help us integrate, how can it help exhaustion, and how can it support our antiracist activism?

Participants will integrate:

  • Developing a grounded understanding of personal and systemic responsibility
  • The role of self-compassion in connecting us with ourselves and with others in a world rife with conflict and chaos.
  • Antiracist principles
  • Neuroscience concepts connected with implicit biases
  • Engagement of brain structures involved in self-compassion
  • Skills and coaching in response to microaggressions
