Waking up to Whiteness, February 9, 2019

49829615_10156082278668697_7213045592472158208_n Psychologist, Dr. Nathalie Edmond is presenting a 3-hour workshop from 1 to 4 pm on Saturday, Feb 9th, Lambertville, NJ.  It is based on the work of Ruth King who is a queer woman of color exploring the use of meditation to heal racism. The cost for the workshop is $30.00.

Our culture is designed so that whiteness is the norm and privileged. Many are not socialized to have conversations about race or even have diverse social networks. Racism and ideas related to white supremacy are viewed as extreme individual acts rather than institutionalized and embedded in all elements of society and part of our conditioning.

This workshop will take a mindfulness perspective and explore concepts such as racism, white privilege, white supremacy and how white people can start to explore their racial identity and become accomplices/allies in working towards social justice
