Event description

Description

The variety of experiences that the Pan Asian American Pacific Islander community faces is broad and diverse. Yet the one struggle that we can all relate to in some way is toxic invisibility. Asian Americans have a long history of contributing to the culture and flourishing of the United States, yet we are underrepresented in media, modeling, politics, the C-suite, and virutally all positions of power and leadership. Many of us have lost sight of our ethnic heritages and identities through assimilation. Many of our accomplishments are not acknowledged by broader society. Many of our needs and desires are ignored by our parents. And many of us repress and hide our physical and emotional pain, rendering us invisible even to ourselves.

In an effort to put an end to decades of silencing and toxic invisibility of Asian Americans, licensed psychotherapist and dating coach, Stephanie Lee, LCSW, has partnered with artist, community organizer, and inspirational speaker, Ryan Takemiya, to create a groundbreaking curriculum on overcoming toxic invisibility for Asian Americans. Drawing from neuroscience, psychology, sociology, the expressive arts, and our personal experiences as Asian Americans, we will share with you practical tools and skills that will enable you to finally be seen fully and authentically.

Through our workshops, we hope to empower the Bay Area Asian American community to be at the forefront of bringing Asian Americans out of the darkness and into the light. It is time that society recognizes our vast contributions to this country; that our parents recognize we are indeed good enough; and that we recognize ourselves – seeing and acknowledging the beautiful people we are.

This first workshop is our introductory course on Overcoming Toxic Invisibility for Asian Americans:

Overcoming Invisbility 101 – How we can use neuroscience, storytelling, self-awareness, and cultural synthesis as a basis for overcoming invisibility.

In this course, we will provide an overview of our healing and empowerment philosophy and show you how you can start laying the foundation and platform from which you will learn to be seen. In this workshop you will:

  • Identify the ways you've faced invisibility in your life
  • Learn how understanding your neurobiological processes can help you to gain a more objective view of yourself
  • Develop the skills to understand and analyze yourself without judgment
  • Understand how your personal narratives shape your feelings about yourself and how you project yourself to others
  • Discover what makes you unique and figure out how tapping into your authentic self will help you accomplish your goals
  • Connect with others over shared experiences

This course will run 4 consecutive Wednesdays starting October 23rd. Fee is $240 for the whole 4-week series.

We look forward to being a part of your journey of growth and visibility!

- "Using neuroscience to unlock barriers holding us back from Asian representation and leadership"

- "Beyond the Spa – How genuine self-care is the first step toward visibility"

- "How bringing cultural synthesis into your work will set you apart as a leader in your industry"
