In the Bones of our Ancestors

Saturday, Jan 20, 2018 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Jamaica Plain

On January 20th, Jen Kiok will be offering a day-long workshop for white Jews to explore our dual roles in the systems of white supremacy, racism and anti-semitism. The day will be grounded in heart space and guided by the understanding that we must heal from these systems as we work to dismantle them.

The goals of this work are:

  • Personal and collective healing and transformation from the ways we, and our ancestors, have been harmed and have harmed others through white supremacy.

  • To be effective and whole in our work to dismantle white supremacy in ourselves and in the world.

The long term vision of this work is to experience collective liberation alongside all those who will celebrate with us once white supremacy has crumbled.

A year ago on January 20th a white supremacist was inaugurated as the president of the United States. In the past year the racism, anti-semitism and white supremacy of our country has been re-exposed. This year on January 20th we will gather to vision our way to a different future. It’s easy to look outside ourselves to make change, this is an invitation to look within.

**This workshop was partially inspired by and developed with support from Eleanor Hancock at White Awake**
