By and For BIPOC Only
This workshop is taught by, and intended for, people who identify as BIPOC. Thea Elijah teaches Whole Heart Whiteness classes that are for white people only, as well as Whole Heart Connection classes that are open to all people.
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.
Presented by Weishin Huang, Diana Yoon, Rachelle Dixon, Francesca Rios, and Mahlia Joyce.
