Event Info


At the root of discrimination and racism is the belief I am because they are. If we want a more just and equitable world where we all experience liberation, we must acknowledge that we’ve operated in a manner that does not acknowledge the humanity in us all. This session will begin with a brief meditation and movement exercise. We’ll discuss who we are beyond the color of our skin and the roles we assume.


– A deeper understanding of how you perform certain actions or engage in relationships
– How you adopt beliefs and thought processes based on your roles that may contrast with who you believe you are or who you can be


– Want to move in kindness and compassion in your dealings with others
– Interested in learning more about your own personal biases and beliefs
– Want to actively improve your behaviors to see the humanity in all
