Skill in Action Dismantling Racism Workshop

Sunday, February 10, 2019 10:00am-1:30pm

Key West Yoga Sanctuary

Personal and collective transformation happens in spiritual spaces and activists circles. Embodied practice is necessary in activist spaces to help us sustain our movement work. Activism is necessary in spiritual spaces because we aren't isolated in our spiritual practice and there is no way to separate from the chaos dominant culture created via white supremacy, oppression and power.

In this workshop, we will deepen our understanding of the principles of justice, activism and of contemplative practice. We will discuss the workings of power and privilege, oppression and identity, suffering and liberation, and loving kindness. In addition, we will discuss what we internalize from living in a white supremacist culture and how these internalizations impact us individually, as people of color, as white people, and as a collective. We will practice movement, meditation, mindfulness, pranayama (breathing) as you sharpen goals and visions for your work to change the world. You will also create concrete plans to put your goals into action.

This inclusive, all-levels workshop is designed for anyone who wants to understand how to link the practices of inner and outer change in service of our individual and collective liberation.
