What is whiteness? What is white privilege? How can folks who identify as white become more aware of internalized racism and white supremacy in ourselves and the world? And how can our spiritual practice support white folks to courageously follow this inquiry without collapsing in shame and guilt?

Racism is not only racial hatred and bigotry, it includes the vast array of visible and invisible systems that give advantages to people who are considered white while disadvantaging people of color. For white identified folks, looking at it can be painful, provocative, and ultimately liberating.

Come and unpack these questions with the guidance of an experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate facilitator. The series format will allow time to digest and inquire in a supportive environment.

Please note: this is not an asana (yoga posture) class. Each session will involve portions of lecture, discussion, and awareness/mindfulness practice.

This series is intended for people who identify as white to do our own work around waking up to racism. No people of color who wish to participate in this series will be turned away. Please email annephyfe@8limbsyoga.com with questions.
