What is Spiritual Activism 101?
AN ANTI-RACISM + WORKSHOP FOR SOULFUL SOCIAL JUSTICE
the Duality Project is pleased to host racial justice advocate Rachel Ricketts for a curated offering of her Spiritual Activism 101 workshop. This is a special opportunity for all hue-mans to come together for a sacred and spiritual conversation about how they can commit to anti-racism and inclusion, acknowledge their privilege, confront their fears and learn how to actively contribute to lasting, effective racial justice.
The workshop includes:
anti-racism education (including history, meaning and applications of race/racism, cultural appropriation, whiteness/white supremacy and their daily consequences, tips for creating inclusive spaces);
discussion about spiritual activism + how to authentically commit to anti-racism
intentional journalling to unpack blind spots
practical group exercises curated to the [yoga/health/wellness space OR local community, as applicable] to apply, discuss and share what we've learned
transformative breathwork to process, release and let go
guided meditation to ground
take-away worksheet for reflection.
Participants will leave feeling supported and empowered in their journey to better show up for themselves and the collective, and most importantly, in incorporating anti-racism into their daily practice and supporting people of colour (particularly Black and Indigenous womxn), both on and off the mat.
Open to all hue-mans, especially White or White-passing folks [in the health/wellness committed to decolonizing their practice], seeking ways to better support POCs and learn spiritual tools + practices to assist in committing to anti-racism.
The event is hosted and sponsored by the Duality Project. All sales are to help us recoup costs.
Bring your journal, pen, mat and something cozy to sit on. Dress code is comfy casual, and a warm layer is recommended. We will be doing transformative breathwork to close out the workshop (no prior experience required).
