Your name and social security haven't changed. You look the same. You have decades of experience being you. You have interests, routines, hobbies, friends and family.
There are many things you like about yourself:
Perhaps you weathered the storm of the pandemic with its pivots and turns and landed right side up with a plan.
And then racial tensions took hold and you started acting and thinking in ways you don't recognize or kept at bay. You have doubts about the world you knew.
Are you racist?
Do you feel ashamed or hateful, but not know why?
Do others see you differently?
Who are you??
Has the world gone mad or have you?
How do you discuss such matters and with whom? Isn't talking about all of this some admission of transgression or instability?
You need guidance that is informed, reliable and supportive as you explore this terrain and reclaim your confidence regarding your sense of self.
A "feel good" and inspirational talk may impact your mood for 24 hours, but it will likely only skim the surface of correcting bias or generating personal growth and lasting transformation.
Learn through attunement and shift into being as we cover these aspects:
Key components that make up identity beyond culture, race, gender, class and sexual orientation.
How historical factors and patriarchy influence identity in implicit ways.
The workshop is scheduled for some time in October-November. Join the waitlist and we will update you in advance! Please feel free to provide us with your questions and preferences ahead of time.
