Healing Circle with Amanda St. Maur
Honoring Safe Space for Our Community Members of Color
As we begin to shape the quality of our individual and collective experience we also create spaces and opportunities for global majority or POC spaces and voices to be amplified. This will look like divesting resources from historically white dominated spaces to allow POC to shine, because right now the Black community in particular is lifting up wellness, rest, and joy as a birthright.
“It is only with the liberation and amplification of Black people and spaces that humanity can be freed from it’s chains of oppression, just as Black people cannot be liberated while humanity is in chains.” (BROC statement, 2016)
Affinity groups for non-white identifying people creates an opportunity to unpack emotional, spiritual, and the subtle impacts of racism without the burden of having to teach White culture about these complex issues. To further advance racial equity it’s also important for White caucuses to be formed in your communities. This allows White people to unpack their own culture and privilege.
This work around equity and building kinship will be layered. However when it’s transmitted thoughtfully and with education under our wings it will deconstruct rather than amplify systems of suffering.
