This first week, the theme has been “Digging In.”
Sunday: Week One Catch-Up and Reflections
Part of grounding in the reality of racism and other forms of oppression is not simply about thinking, but also honoring our emotional and embodied reactions. There is important information in our feelings and bodies that dominant professional culture can often marginalize (more on this next week!).
As you reflect on this week’s prompts and resources, what emotions come up? What do you sense in your body? What does that tell you? What can you learn from that?
For more information on tuning into emotions and embodied intelligence, check out The Move to End Violence and The Focusing Institute.
We’ll see you tomorrow to start Week 2. Our theme will be “Healing.”
