Through the intersection of lecture, yoga, and mindfulness Elisha Fernandes Simpson
provides a brief overview that highlights our history, tracing the past into the present to introduce the concept of white privilege.
This topic is difficult, current, reactive, and vital, and not just restricted to “bad people.” During the time of COVID-19, police brutality, structural racism and inequality, the invitation is to unpack and continuously question how we place ourselves in the world each moment. Be open to reckon with one’s own internalized identity and emotional structures and continue to reference and move through it.
The lecture will be followed by yoga practice to cultivate courage and being in service of the heart. When we have the fortitude to lean into the work, we allow ourselves to become aware of what is holding us back in becoming connected and alive.
