Dismantling systems of oppression
6 October @ 6:45 pm - 8:30 pm$90
In an interactive and safe learning environment, we will be invited to work on examples from our own life. We will practice ‘Nonviolent Communication’ through demonstrations, role-playing and exercises in order to integrate the NVC values and language more in our own daily lives.
* The course provides a child-free learning environment to honor many students’ needs for focus, concentration, relaxation and learning.
We will explore + you will learn:
+ How to transform anger into connection (from both sides)
+ Empathic listening – how to hear what the other is saying, no matter how they express it
+ How to deeply listen to ourselves, to the depth of what is important to us, and how to communicate that in a way that fosters compassion and cooperation. How to care for ourselves and for our children/family/work colleagues at the same time?
+ How to stand clearly for our boundaries without using threats or punishments. How to move from being a policeman/policewoman, into just being humans together
+ How to create peaceful dialogues that include and connect us all

I’m moved to share the video below featuring Jesse Williams’ speech at the *BET awards (3 minutes).
I stand behind his words.
“Healing isn’t fully healing if it doesn’t in some way connect the individual to the community. We heal so that communities can take on healing, as part of their everyday ways of being” Susan Raffo
the purpose of this call is to address racialized trauma and explore the pathways to mending our hearts and bodies.
To bring to light all of the ways we attempt to live with the indigestible so it does not continue to leak, to clean up your pain.
