White people*: We need all the help we can get. Working at the level of the body, we will welcome our well ancestors of blood and bone to extend their blessings to us, and to give us their full support and backing in our efforts to end white supremacy in our lifetimes.
We all come from people who lived in interdependence with each other and connection with the Earth. This class invites a reconnection to our lineages through practicing meditation, healing and repair, so that we can know ourselves and our inherent belonging more deeply.
*For self-identified white people. If you identify as white and are committed to racial justice, this class is for you.
All registered participants will receive a link to join us via Zoom with their EventBrite confirmation email.
