Have you been impacted by racism or other forms of oppression in spiritual spaces?

Are you a guide, coach, teacher, or facilitator curious about the ways in which you may be perpetuating racism or oppression in your spiritual communities?

Have you thought about the intersections of race, power, and spiritual community and want to hear others’ experiences?

Untangling White Supremacy in Spiritual Practices and Communities is an inspired, interactive conversation from the viral blog post, Converting Hidden Spiritual Racism into Sacred Activism: An Open Letter to Spiritual White Folks. Intuitive astrologer, Virginia Rosenberg, and folk healing artist, Richael Faithful, come together to talk about the intersections of spirituality, racism, power, and community-building.

With face-to-face honesty, embodiment exercises, and multimedia resources, we will explore and unpack topics such as:

“Light”-washing. Spiritual bypassing. Spiritual materialism. Financial exchange for healing/spiritual services. Prosperity gospel and Law of Attraction. Transcendance and escapism. Cultural appropriation. Judeo-Christian and colonizer/dominator narrative. Victim/Savior/Martyrdom. Blood and belonging. Race and human ecology.

We invite you into the conversation! This is an authentic and respectful dialogue of deep and active listening. Join us in an intentional container to explore, understand, deepen, and move through.
