Event description


Environmental collapse and daily human rights abuses, our world is in crisis. Too many people are dying at the hands of white supremacy and systems of oppression. We are need of a spiritual revolution.

We are also in a time when more and more people are joining movements for racial justice. From the powerful visions and leadership of the Movement for Black Lives, Standing Rock, Mijente, and the Poor People’s Campaign.

However, changemaking is trauma work. We must respond to this truth with every effort possible. Currently, our changemaking work is full of intense burn out, infighting, confusion, depression, anxiety, disconnected strategy, reactionary responses and focus on reacting to every crisis with little space for visioning and imagining a different world.

Systemic racism has disconnected us white folks from our ancestry, cultures, our spirituality, and our humanity.

We are in a new era of antiracism, one that is asking us to consider a holistic approach to the work, to our relationships and to ourselves. One that centers a re-connection to the earth and to our ancestors.

We must examine the ways that our bodies, hearts and psyches are part of the work of building the world we need.

We must connect practice and action if we are to contribute towards creating a new way of being and creating a world more beautiful.

The journey of liberation is a spiritual journey.

This workshop is based on key lessons and practices from Practice Showing Up: A Guidebook for White People Working for Racial Justice, a book written by Jardana Peacock. Her book gathers embodied and contemplative practice and weaves them with meditations from the front lines of struggle against white supremacy.

This is for you if:

  • You are ready to open your heart, soul and mind and dive into your ancestry as a white person.
  • You want to or already showing up for racial justice.
  • You experience imposter syndrome.
  • You believe in collective liberation.
  • You yearn for a community of connection and belonging.

We will explore:

  • How spirituality and healing are essential for our changemaking work.
  • Ancestral healing.
  • How to address internalized white supremacy and other forms of oppression.
  • Practices and collective tools to strengthen resilience.
  • How white supremacy and other systems of oppression sabotage our ability to connect with one another.
  • The role of love in dismantling the system of white supremacy to hold each other in pain and in hope, imperfection and liberation.
  • How to work towards building the communities of love and resistance that we desire.

What you will receive:

  • A recording of the workshop
  • Three Liberatory Leadership handouts
  • Healing practice space facilitated by Jardana

Cost: $35
