White To White Conversations
Staying In Racial Conversations
4 Tuesdays, July 21 to August 11th, 4:00-6:00 pm MDT
This is an invitation for you to take the next step. Come learn ideas on how to prepare for and stay in white to white racial conversations. The who, what, when, where, and how about dialogue – internal with your self and with others.
Using the framework of Courage & Renewal practices, we will create a brave and trustworthy space to explore what is on your heart and mind. Learning to be vulnerable and uncomfortable is a first step along with staying with the messiness of racial dialogue. Nonviolent Communication key distinctions and skills will be shared each session to support skill building in these messy and uncomfortable conversations, which often feel chaotic, confusing, entangled with reactivity, and that “what just happened?” feeling when things turn ugly.
In our brave & trustworthy space, you will have time to explore:
- Questions you are afraid to ask
- How white people have been harmed by whiteness & white supremacy
- The needs under being a “good white person”
- Ways to get unstuck – from frozen broken heart to breaking your heart open
- Develop a community with others who are concerned about racism
- How white guilt separates us from our self and others
You will be asked to “bring an ancestor” along in this unlearning & learning process.
So please think of an ancestor (family members, friend or other) who you can contribute to healing generational trauma.
