What is whiteness? What is white privilege/white supremacy? How can folks who identify as white see and dismantle our racism? At this historic moment of uprising against the violence and injustice of systemic racism and white supremacy, how can our practice support waking up to and dismantling these systems both internally and externally? And how can our spiritual practice support white folks to courageously follow this inquiry without collapsing in shame, guilt, or defensiveness?

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 white facilitator.

The 6-week series format will allow time to digest and inquire in a supportive but challenging environment.

Note: this class does not involve asana (posture) practice.

The curriculum of this series is designed primarily for people who identify as white to do the important work of waking up to racism in ourselves and the world– i.e. it is intended to be a white caucus space as one very small part of larger social justice movement spaces that are BIPOC centered.  If any BIPOC folks are interested in joining (at no charge), please be in touch at the email below. 

Class recordings will be available for one week after each class for those who miss a session.
