Please join social justice educators, Jennifer Cannon and Molly Keehn, as they facilitate an exploration of racism, white privilege, and white supremacy culture.

This retreat is designed for white people in order to educate ourselves and help others on the path toward becoming skillful antiracist allies.  Participants will engage in a supportive and open dialogue as we work together to uncover the social conditioning we have received as members of a dominant group.  Grounded in compassion, this workshop will include a blend of mindfulness practices, educational content related to white identity development, and experiential activities including dyad and small group work.

No Prior experience with this topic is required.  This will be a place where fear, confusion, and vulnerability are welcome as we witness, challenge and support each other from a place of mutual respect and care.
