How Do We Lead with Empathy in the Global Healing of Anti-Racism?

June 28 - July 19
Online Event

(Part of "RE-IMAGINING A NEW WORLD: Building Practices of Awareness, Activism and Anti-Racism as a Taiko Community")
In the process of dismantling practices that are born out of colonialism, it is inevitable for us to admit that we are both the victim and victimizer of systemic racism. The process includes a mixture of shame, vulnerability, and courage. Why do we get defensive? How do we approach criticism and frustration? How do we practice empathy as a tactic to heal? How do we hold space for ourselves and others to grow? Reference materials related to Non-violent Communication will be incorporated.

Healing, (Un)learning, Growing

September 13 @ 4:00 pm - November 8 @ 6:00 pm PDT
Online Event
$45 – $225
title of the program - Healing, (Un)learning, Growing

A 9-week series built on the foundation of the taiko spirit meant to gather, (un)learn, discuss, and move us together towards a more racially equitable world.
“HUG” is a facilitated 9-week series to learn more about the history of racism in the United States, including how racism permeates current systems, institutions and policies. HUG will provide a space to reflect upon White supremacy and anti-Blackness within ourselves, our groups and our community. Using both the “Seeing White” podcast, and selections of works from primarily Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) as a framework for our learning, we aim to move the needle (individually and collectively) towards equity, justice, liberation, and action.
