This seminar blends mindfulness practices with an engaged exploration of racial conditioning to help white people practice anti-racism with intention and self-understanding.

Through this course, participants will:

Learn how US racial history and government policies have shaped laws that have resulted in the systemic oppression of people of color;
In a supportive environment, lessen the grip of anger, fear, and guilt, embracing discomfort to foster self awareness and honesty; and
Become aware of white peoples’ role in the construction and maintenance of oppression and explore ways to counteract this oppression in non-harming ways.

This program is intended for white people, and this also excludes those of Asian or Native American heritage. It is also intended for those with some familiarity with mindfulness meditation practice. If you would like a refresher on that practice, one is available at 4:00 p.m. on Friday.
