Description

Healing from Racial Trauma

Online Workshop by Mustapha Sheikh

Event date : Saturday 19/02/22 and Saturday 26/02/22

Delivery method: Zoom


Racism is a system of dominance, power, and privilege based on racial group designations . . . where members of the dominant group create or accept their societal privilege by maintaining structures, ideology, values, and behaviour that have the intent or effect of leaving nondominant-group members relatively excluded from power, esteem, status, and/or equal access to societal resources.
Harrell, 2000

Unchecked the trauma of microaggressions and racially motivated encounters can leave one feeling disconnected, unsure of themselves and viscerally affected. This workshop creates definition and clarity around racism, what it is, the impact it has and how to overcome it. The workshops are a weekend session informing attendees on how to use language to connect with their own experiences, the practical exercises are designed to facilitate release and give rise to purpose.
