WEBINAR: Compassionate Activism: Healing from Internalized Oppression


This webinar will present the Compassionate Activism approach on how we can heal from internalized oppression and build our capacity to respond to everyday injustice from a place of emotional wholeness and shared humanity.

Join this webinar to learn how to re-connect with your inner voice and power in emotionally-charged situations that you need it the most. This includes when whether due to power, privilege, and other challenging dynamics, we feel we aren't allowed to say what we feel, do what we want, or ask for what we need and are consequently left feeling trapped and without options or support.

By the end of this webinar, participants will learn:

  • How systemic oppression has taught us to deny and suppress our feelings, pain, and needs
  • How to give ourselves the acknowledgement and validation we're too often denied
  • How to skillfully get present to the underlying pain in a way that is not overwhelming and is actually a relief with the practice of mindfulness
  • How to move into a more spacious place around the emotionally charged situation
  • Quick tools you can use to start healing and releasing the emotional charge in any moment
