Maintaining an Authentic Practice: Centering The Marginalized Experience
We are living in a time where the underpinnings of white supremacy are being exposed and slowly dismantled by activism. Now more than ever, healers have an opportunity to ground their practice in energetic and sacred activism by lifting, supporting, prioritizing, and acknowledging those who are on the fringes. This training is a call-out to practices grounded in white supremacy and a call-in to those in healing work who wish to continue their commitment to authentic and dignified change.
Participants in this training will:
• Be introduced to the concepts of spiritual-bypassing, light-washing, white-washing, microaggressions, cultural competence, and appropriation
• Gain a deeper understanding of how intergenerational trauma and epigenetic tags can disrupt the relationship between a healer and a client
• Briefly explore shadow work around their personal bias and how that impacts their practice
• Identify specific reasons why marginalized populations don’t receive appropriate care by understanding power and privilege dynamics within all of us
• Understand what it means to deepen connections with their truth (deep wildness) and work with integrity, not silence
• Discuss ways to intentionally make their healing practice accessible and respectful
This class centers around the deep work of the feminine and is primarily targeted towards populations who identify as womxn/feminine/femme/female but ALL are welcome and have a place.
