White Healing Conversations (private event)

“We want to see a world in which all living beings can thrive! We are committed to doing the external work to dismantle systems of white supremacy that foreclose that thriving. But what do we create in the place of those systems? In order to avoid replicating the same dysfunction in what we create, we have to heal from the ways our bodies, minds, and spirits have been misshapen by the myth of white supremacy. We are so grateful for Vanessa Lewis’s call to do this work!”
–Nichola, Max, Dawn and Cecilia

Bring your parents! An Intergenerational Gathering for White Families With Anna Ostow

“I want white people to seek and ultimately find where our stake lies in racial justice and the Movement for Black Lives, to find and hold dear how our liberation is bound up in the liberation of others. That is where I find meaning and its what brings me joy. Solidarity Healing September and Black Healing October makes all these connections explicit–that our healing is linked, that my healing can support your healing and vice versa, and allows for a beautiful sharing and distribution of resources in the direction so that one day every single person without exception will have the healing they need and deserve.”
–Anna Ostow

Dancing Gender With Taylor Garrison

“Solidarity Healing September is important to me because I believe in the power of finding one’s superpower and using it in the path towards collective liberation. The idea that I could share space and ideas with other gender-questioning people AND it could be in service to Black healers and community is amazing! I’m so excited to create these spaces and start these journeys together!”
