Healing the Wounds of Racism, a Retreat for People of Color with Marisela Gomez January 5, 2019
People of color (POC) communities are impacted by internalized racism, micro-aggressions, systematic and structural oppression, and more. We are conditioned to take on racism, internalize it and have it impact our self-worth and well being, affecting our relationship with ourselves and our communities.
This is an invitation for those who identify as people of color to attend this day-long retreat on healing from the internalized racism that debilitates and keeps us from showing up fully and beautifully.
The retreat combines mindfulness in the Plum Village tradition founded by Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and the Courage & Renewal® Approach, founded by American educator, Parker J. Palmer, to reflection. The retreat includes periods of mindful breathing, mindful sitting, mindful walking, mindful eating, mindful speaking and listening, quiet reflection, small and large group dialogue, and deep relaxation.
Enter the new year by cultivating a sense of inner peace and self-love.
