Embracism: An introduction to anti-racist transformation
Embracism is a course for inner transformation helping us all to do our part in dismantling the racist systems we inhabit
Saturday March 13th and Sunday March 14th from 1 to 4 pm
Modules 1 and 2 Saturday March 13th from 1-4 pm
Modules 3 and 4 Sunday March 14th from 1-4 pm
Our introductory 4-part course aims to take those with a racially privileged position from confusion to awareness, awareness to integration, and from integration to action in service of changing the racist structures we inhabit. We center the work and voices of black leaders, while attempting to remove the burden of education from those most harmed by racism.
Each class focuses on a fundamental questions. We do not claim to have all the answers.
Class 1: Mind
An overview of the policies and history that have created racist outcomes in our society, class one asks us “What do I know about racism in America? What do I think I know? What do I not know I don’t know?”
Class 2: Body
A look at the impacts of racialized trauma and a reminder that policies and attitudes land, as Ta-Nehisi Coates says- with great force, on a body, class two asks us “How does racialized trauma live in both white bodies and bodies of color? How can we begin to heal?”
Class 3: Heart
Investigating how trauma culture affects us all, class three provides opportunity for connection so we can all find a heart-centered way into the work of owning our roles and responsibilities and asks us “Why do I care? In what ways am I implicated and connected?”
Class 4: Soul
In service of changing our society so that structures of oppression don’t continue to define our relationship to eachother, class four asks “What is the soul-work I can step into to create change? What is my role?”
