I invite you to participate in a program to transform white racism so each one of us moves along the continuum towards equality, equity, dignity, reparation and justice for all races in our society.

Step up and step out on your own journey—we will travel together!

Overview of the Modules:

This program guides you through a journey transforming white racism into behaviors that generate racial justice for all.

Thread 1: Ongoing

Self-awareness and self-observation on DE-conditioning journaling alone. Exchange in pods.

Thread 2: Interactive online sessions.

Six 3 -hour online Zoom sessions corresponding to six steps through a journey transforming white racism into compassion, dignity, and a drive to bring social justice for all. Each step includes non-verbal work, opening the heart to the current and past stories of racism, and engagement leading to practical tasks as a follow-through.

Thread 3: Follow-up

1 -2 months after the program ends, you are asked to share your good practices as well as what did not work to satisfaction. We will thus create a repository of effective practices.

You become part of an on-going on-line community to support you as you continue along the path as soon as you sign up for this program.

Participant feedback on the key elements of the program:

 Community work. I learnt a lot from our interactions, and it feels less stressful to share the hard and hopeless experience of racism with others

 Guardianship: practicing compassion for ourselves and each other as we learn to not let our own emotional worlds keep us from the work that needs to be done in the material world.

 The combination of journaling, videos, articles, books, body work and communal conversation to explore.

Participanf feedback on the facilitator:

 Kathleen's energy, passion and commitment; using real experiences of group members as learning opportunities.

 Kathleen's facilitation helping keep the conversation real and confronting our previous understandings of the situation for BIPOC.

This program is for you when you feel:

  • I am ready to detox, decondition and decolonize my mind from 500 years of systemic racism.
  • I want to heal racial trauma.
  • I commit to more and more to include, support, and protect BIPOC/BAME people in my everyday life.

“One of the disappointing findings I’ve read about in systemic racism studies is not only how prevalent it is at an unconscious level for white people (“I’m not racist…”), but how extended anti-racism educational efforts usually don’t change that unconscious bias. Like in the deeper work that we do, the verbal mind, however willing it may present, is disconnected from the deeper racist soul, and thus talking about it doesn’t touch it, much less transform it.”Stephen Gilligan Ph.D

In Transforming White Racism you will :

  • identify then manage your own emotions around race
  • release intergenerational, collective and personal racial trauma.
  • create ongoing racial healing practices.

The approach includes latest neuroscience practices and indigenous healing elements such as movement (breathing, trauma release techniques, mime), rituals, and sound healing (vibrating sounds in your body, chanting).

As part of this change, we need to undertake a transformation to look at how overt, systemic, and institutional racism has affected the BAME/BIPOC communities. This time is a watershed moment in our societies. We have an opportunity to tip the scale from an environment of racial injustice and oppression towards social justice and well-being. How can we utilize this momentum to support, then sustain the change in race relations?

Change requires practice, individual and collective mindfulness, evaluation then practice until it becomes a new generative habit.
