Belonging In Practice: Anti-Racist Co-Learning Space for White Women
Thu, Jun 18
Zoom Gathering
Jun 18, 7:00 PM – Jul 23, 9:00 PM
Zoom Gathering
This is a community conversation for white women to learn about anti-racist practices, hear about strategic actions that you can take to advance racial justice in your community, and share resources to strengthen your capacity to be a stronger advocate in the fight for a more just world.

This is a community conversation for white women to learn about anti-racist practices, unpack your biases, take action and dismantle the privilege within yourself so that you can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, and share resources to strengthen your capacity to be a stronger advocate in the fight for a more just world.

DETAILS:

WHEN: Thursdays, from June 18th - July 23rd

TIME: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

WHERE: Online (Zoom)

REQUIRED MATERIALS:

  • “Me & White Supremacy” workbook by Layla F. Saad

  • Journal for writing 

THIS IS A DONATION-BASED PROGRAM

Suggested donation: $50-$100

Proceeds will go to Alamance Aid, a mutual aid grassroots initiative by NC based Alamance Racial Equity Alliance (A.R.E.A). 

ONLY 16 SPOTS AVAILABLE

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are fighting everyday to live free from all forms of violence. Following the murder of George Floyd, like so many others, we were disgusted, grief-struck and outraged; it's problematic that it takes the loss of another black life to get white folks to care, to wake up and consider their role in perpetuating a system that was designed to keep BIPOC disenfranchised. Many White people have taken to social media to express outrage; but, this is not enough, we must do more.

 

That is why we have put together this new offering based on the "Me & White Supremacy" workbook by Layla F. Saad,  which participants will need in preparation for being a part of the group. It will also be informed by The Circle Way process which participants  will learn more about before our first gathering.

 

As white women we understand the importance of coming together with other white folks to do our own shadow work in a safe space where we can be seen and heard by one another. This will not be easy work. We’re going to get uncomfortable. It will be painful. We’re going to be inconvenienced. Committing to antiracism means doing hard work and making real changes in how we live our lives. It means showing up and being accountable to BIPOC. Be ready for this.

 

This space is designed for white women who are ready to make racial justice a serious part of their lives and who are preparing to plug into a legitimate white caucus space in their local community. This is not a space for performative allyship and wokeness….  we recognize that this is a part of our unlearning.

 

If you are new to the movement and want to challenge white supremacy but don’t know where to start, join us for this important co-learning journey as we explore our own internalized white supremacy. We know it is not enough... but it is a small step toward greater accountability. This will be the beginning of a journey that will last our lifetimes and beyond. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Introduction to what it means to be an antiracist & setting the container

  • 30 day individual deep dive into “Me & White Supremacy” workbook and weekly group debrief & discussion 

  • A commitment of up to one hour a day to antiracist education

  • Willingness to have uncomfortable conversations held in a safe space

  • Supporting integration and strategizing a way forward 

 

Let us be clear that we are not experts in the field of antiracism nor do we consider ourselves anti-racist educators. In fact we are at the beginning of this journey with you. We are offering this space simply to start a conversation, share the experience of moving through the “Me & White Supremacy” Workbook and strategize actionable next steps to deepen our understanding and commitment to ending white supremacy.

SOLIDARITY SISTERS IS A DONATION-BASED PROGRAM

Suggested donation: $50-$100

We come together as we are, in a safe and honoring space to be held in sisterhood, to be seen and celebrated as unique and powerful individuals together on a journey toward deeper self-knowing, self-loving, mutual expansion and collective liberation. We call forth our gifts, our truth, and the aspects of self in hiding. We lift each other up and hold each other in loving awareness and recognize each other as divine reflections here to support one another to develop a deeper sense of wholeness, power and integration as conscious women. We seek to unveil our most intimate, human selves without shame or fear. We step into our courage and fierceness and cast spells of love upon one another.

Through this weekly emergent group process, we will actively participate in creating the kind of culture we long to see in the world through authentic, intimate, and healing experiences that transform personal and collective consciousness. We will build women’s power by sharing our stories, listening to and supporting one another, discovering our inner fire, speaking truth, and showing up for one another in ways that feels meaningful. We are being called to RISE as a collective. We are being called to come together and co-create new ways of being in the world that recognizes our ancient belonging to each other and to Earth. We must become who we are here to become and we need the support of one another to do it. 

WHAT WE DO TOGETHER:
Through nature connection, group process, ritual & ceremony

and organic free flow, we explore the following topics (this is a broad list of topics and does not mean that each session will cover these specific topics):

"The wound is the place where the light enters you."

- Rumi

Interalchemy Circle explores the layers of conditioning, traumas, and unconscious patterns that each of us carry and how it shows up in our bodies. We will explore your current relationship to the outer world and how moments of challenge/trigger inform your current relationship to your inner world. We seek to contemplate and make meaning out of each experience as a doorway into greater self-awareness. We aim to cultivate interoceptive awareness in which you will begin to attune to your bodily sensations, feelings, ways of receiving, accessing and engaging with your environment. During each session, we will guide individuals through a facilitated process of discovery, awareness, reflection, re-association and integration. We will share exercises, activities and ‘home plays’ that strengthen your awareness and will provide you with resources for inner tracking, regulation and embodiment. 

This group therapeutic circle is for the one who longs to understand themselves more intimately and is willing to face their fears to discover hidden aspects of their true self. It is for the one who is willing to get uncomfortable and is ready to look seriously and with curiosity at the current thought-forms, emotional patterning, behaviors and ways of relating to the world that define their current experience. It is for the person who is willing to invest in their own transformation knowing it will require their whole self. Only you can transform you. Only you can do the work of becoming who you want to be. We create a supportive space for you to experiment and explore new edges of self discovery.

 

Over the course of this program, you will also have an opportunity to meet one-on-one to ask questions, receive further guidance and deepen your integration practice. The goal of this space is to create the right conditions for transformation to take place among people who want to make life changes toward healing and wholeness. Those conditions include safety, trust, spaciousness, acceptance, compassion, understanding, sensitivity, patience, receptivity, and gratitude. The power and success of the group is based on each person’s willingness to show up as their authentic selves with a willingness to take risks, be seen and heard, and who are committed to strengthen these conditions. We honor each other in our vulnerability and are inspired to be more of who we inherently are as we uncover the layers of conditioning holding us back. Doing this work in a group setting is POWERFUL. It takes courage to show up in a space like this with a willingness to compassionately witness others and to be seen in your humanness.

The body is our only home. Our bones, breath and blood are the minerals, air and water around us. The person is an earthen form, living in the medium of air. We have come out of the depths of earth and from this emergence are suddenly placed within an anthropocentric environment in which we are primed and homogenized to be civilized consumer citizens. The separation from our earthly roots increases, and slowly but surely we distance ourselves from the primal source of our existence and begin to forget where we came from. Before we know it, we have lost touch with the wisdom of our bodies, the natural rhythms of our inherent essence, and the connection to what makes us come alive. 

Today in the mainstream West, human culture is no longer in harmony with the earth. Our natural rhythm, intuitive movement and seasonal way of being has been stripped away and replaced with a manufactured, unsustainable pace of living. We increasingly spend more time in front of screens, in sedentary workplaces, urban landscapes and suburban sprawls. Times are changing and we can feel the urge from within to find a new way forward. Life is asking us to return to ourselves and to remember where we’ve come from. We belong to earth. 

 

Somatics comes from the Greek root “soma”, which means "the living organism in its wholeness."  It is the best word we have in English to understand human beings as an integrated mind/body/spirit, and as social, relational beings. Soma then can be used to describe the body as an intelligent, co-creative receptor that bridges our inner and outer environments. Eco-Somatics acknowledges that our bodies are created from the living elements and intelligent forces of the cosmos. It recognizes that our bodies are inherently interconnected to the greater body of earth. The stories, memories, energetic imprints, traumas, revelations, evolutionary shifts in consciousness and historical records of earth live in our bones and blood. We are elements of nature: our soma and psyche (the mind of the soul) are reflections of the planet, each intricately embedded in the other. 

 

How do we redirect the modern mind to engage with the natural world and reorient our bodies to the rhythms of earth? We must return to the wild. Nature is the master teacher and healer. Cultivating intimacy with our inner and outer nature restores balance between body and mind, and between doing and being. It is essential for the health and well-being of our bodies to cultivate our ability to be curious, listen, receive, engage, move, breath and harmonize to nature. We are here to recognize and reconnect to our bodies and reawaken the earth within us. 

 

Embodied Nature is designed for the person longing to reconnect to their sense of aliveness - to their inner home within the body temple and their greater home on earth. It is for the one who desires wild spaces and open time to experience the confluence of somatics, expressive arts (dance, song, art and/or writing), and the healing power of the natural world. Participants will gather each morning as a group to be guided in somatic practices of breath, vocalization, contact, intrinsic movement and stillness to generate a repertoire of inner attunement resources. Throughout our time together, we will deepen contact with our body’s experience, track our senses and tune in to our instinctive nature, contemplate and engage in meaningful moments with earth, connect to our natural rhythms, and harvest our experiences for reintegration.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

- Rumi

“Nothing is more important in our lives than our relationships. A great relationship boosts your immune system, opens your heart, and keeps you vital and creative.” - Terry Real

Imagine coming together with other couples who are eager to explore the evolving nature of relationships and the opportunities that lie hidden within their inevitable challenges. This program is all about understanding the true nature of relationship as a catalyst for change and transformation. This is a uniquely designed 6-week program for couples who want to take their relationship to the next level by entering into a shared process of self and discovery that encourages the possibility of deepening awareness, integrating new relational skills, and healing dynamics that deepen intimacy and connection. 

 

In a small group setting, we will facilitate six couples through a process of becoming relationally embodied, intimately attuned and consciously present to each others unique experience. We believe that our capacity for healing and transformation as couples becomes amplified when we come together with others to share what we are learning in the context of our partnerships. We believe that every couple is unique and has a lot to share about what is working for them and what isn’t. We also believe that every relationship must pass through the same stages of initiation regardless of how different the details may be. 

We approach our understanding of relationship using the metaphor of a third entity or biosphere. When two people come together to form a partnership, they are forming a third entity: the relationship itself. This third entity represents what you and your partner bring to the relationship. It is the series of experiences, events and behaviors that happen when two people come together around a common purpose and it has a presence, form, energy and influence of its own. Like a biosphere, the quality of your presence and how you choose to show up in the relationship can either pollute or purify the space between you. As partners, we are each responsible for the health and well-being of our sacred third. Over the course of six weeks, we will explore your relational biosphere by bringing awareness to the nature of your interactions, styles of communication, patterns of behavior, daily habits, thoughts and feelings. 

 

Using techniques drawn from Relational Life Therapy (RLT) and MindBody Therapy (MBT) we will facilitate a space in which you will:

  • Strengthen the foundations of your partnership

  • Illuminate areas that need tending and repair

  • Foster presence, self awareness and intentionality

  • Build meaningful relationships with other couples

  • Gain life-long relational skills that can be applied to all your relationships

  • Receive practical tools to help you create a relationship dynamic that keeps you vital.
