The Next Step
This workshop is the first teacher training for those who have already participated in a Whole Heart Connection for People of Color workshop. If you’re wondering whether the full WHC Teacher Training course is right for you, we encourage you to join us in April to see what it’s all about.
We’ll be reviewing and deepening the basic practices, and well as developing specific, advanced skills and practices important for all teachers who teach by transmission.
Please register as soon as possible so that we can get an accurate count in advance of this event!
Healing Ourselves, Healing Our Communities, Healing Our Nation
Right now is a time when we need to be at our most clear and most strong, so that we can reach out to each other and create connections that will serve everyone’s health and the health of our planet. This has been a time of great pain for many people of color. We aim, specifically, to offer this workshop to this specific group at no cost in an effort to heal wounds, repair damage, and assist our communities in moving forward together in health.
Whole Heart Connection is a set of tools for mutual empowerment, and for holding non-violent core alignment in conflictual situations. The body-based nature of these practices makes them ideal for becoming conscious of, and clearing, unconscious embodied racism and sexism, including internalized racism and sexism. These are tools for fostering equality even in the midst of social power imbalance.
Our goal is the well-being of entire communities, and so we are committed to fostering personal health every step of the way. There is no division between being an activist and taking care of ourselves.
Thea Elijah is a white-skinned Jewish convert to Islam, and the developer of WHC. She treasures the growth that happens when we are working together for everyone’s health and justice.
Rachelle Dixon is a Black Latvian American woman with over a decade of experience in teaching about health, sexuality, spirituality and gender within the LGBTQ community. She is dedicated to and passionate about serving minority populations in public health efforts and social justice actions.
Mahlía Joyce is a Black woman with over 20 years of experience in education, social justice work and community engagement. She is dedicated to and passionate about cultivating healing among individuals and communities experiencing historic and ongoing oppression.
