UNRAVELLING WHITENESS

NICE IS NOT ENOUGH

JOURNALING & CONVERSATION FOR YOGA PRACTITIONERS

UNRAVELLING WHITENESS

Before we ask others to help us understand their lives, they ask us to begin with self enquiry, to unpack the stories of our own unconscious conditioning: we start to read, to listen, to watch, to reflect; we find ways both large and small to act. This set of journaling prompts arises from the perspective and recognition that being a nice, non-racist, white person is no longer enough but it is a strong place to start a deeper enquiry.

HOW IT WORKS

The prompts aim to peel back the layers of unconscious conditioning within the privacy of journaling and while they are not heavy-handed in tone the content may well land in the core of your personhood and challenge how you define yourself as a good and well-meaning individual, so expect to feel uncomfortable at times at a personal level, and as a member of the yoga community.

 

Perhaps consider a journaling-buddy that you can check in with as you progress through the material. And, if you choose to join the Zoom gathering, know that it is a place to be heard, to share resources and for enquiry to deepen.

 

Sign up to receive a set of resources for personal self-study and join optional monthly Zoom conversations to continue the conversation, facilitated by Beverley. Participation is freely available.

UPCOMING DATES

Sunday 26th Apr 2020

16:30 - 17:30 Online gathering via Zoom
