Mindfulness and Racial Awareness

  • Mindfulness and Racial Awareness

These monthly drop-ins are being offered as a way to support the continued exploration and cultivation of awareness and compassion as it relates to racial awareness. The drop-in sessions are meant as a follow-on from the Introduction to Mindfulness and Racial Awareness Workshop. 

Each drop-in session will introduce a different topic, followed by a meditation exploring what comes up from that topic. There will then be a chance for group discussion and exploration of this. The drop-ins intend to offer a compassionate space to freely explore what comes up for people and to support people with their practice and transforming their relationship with race and racism.

Examples of topics:

  • Understanding whiteness and white privilege as conceptual and linked to systems of power we all inhabit;
  • Exploring the subject of embodied anti-racism and allyship; and
  • Mindfully exploring and engaging with grief and trauma of others and our own.

Notes:

  • This class will be held on a web-based platform.
  • The teacher and participants will be live and visible at various times. There will be group and one-to-one interaction as you would expect in a traditional classroom setting.
  • Whilst it is not compulsory, we recommend attending our Introduction to Mindfulness and Racial Awareness Workshop before attending this session.
