Apr/20/2017 Cultural Mindfulness Institute – 3 Part Series – Free/Register! – April 20, 24, 27, 2017

Posted by lgannon • April 20th, 2017

“Privilege is not in and of itself bad; what matters is what we do with privilege.” ~bell hooks

Our ability to establish welcoming and inclusive environments within our institutions, businesses and organizations requires a willingness to examine the structures, offerings, relationships and individual perspective and beliefs. In this workshop, we will explore identity with regard to power and privilege and begin to develop a deep mindfulness that helps you to be a transformative interrupter of cycles of internalized and systemic oppression. We will also explore the ways that culturally hostile practices reveal themselves in programmatic and organizational structures, including but not limited to implicit bias and micro-aggressions.
