Reparative Communal Consultations for White Bodies
With Resmaa Menakem
co-facilitated by Carlin Quinn
Dates coming soon.
An 8-month communal journey of healing and practice
Countering white body supremacy and the restoration of wholeness for Black, indigenous and all other bodies of culture requires white bodies take an embodied approach to consciousness and healing. Cognition is ineffective in dealing with white body supremacy because WBS shows up in the way we move through space and time. Any project, strategy, scheme or idea that is not embodied will be tossed into the cultural bonfire of “Curing Race-ism.” The roots of white body supremacy run deep and are implicit to our experience. It’s from our embodied experience, therefore, that our work begins.
The “reparative” nature of these communal consultations for white bodies has meaning on multiple levels. First, a percentage of the income from this event will go to returning land back to Indigenous and Black communities. Second, the healing of white body supremacy, within white bodies and white community spaces, is a reparative act that is our collective responsibility. These reparations move forwards and backwards in time, repairing the impact our ancestors had on passing white body supremacy to our generation. simultaneously, in healing white body supremacy within this generation we break the chain and it is stopped from being passed down to future generations.
What is a communal consultation?
Through establishing a communal container we will tend to the ways white body supremacy moves through us individually and collectively. We will work together to dismantle and heal the impact of white body supremacy on ourselves and our people. This in turn will support us to cause less harm across race and culture. We will learn what it means to stay together, through the fire of trigger and when the impulse towards separation surfaces. This will be a collective learning space where white bodies, all holding different social locations, will lean into building culture through engaging embodied practices, together.
Who is this for?
This communal consultation is for people who identify as white or white passing and experience white privilege in their daily lives.
What is the commitment?
A day-long retreat to lay the groundwork for Somatic Abolitionism with Resmaa Menakem, followed by a 5 hour workshop with Carlin Quinn. Monthly consults with Resmaa and Carlin Lastly participants will be asked to meet 1-2 times each month with the communal triads they are placed in.
By joining this communal consult you commit to the entire 8-month journey together.
