The Inclusive Side of Oneness: Anti-Racist Training for the Spiritual Practitioner
Facilitated by Dr. Joel Brown
Sat. July 11 1pm-4pm
Fee: Sliding Scale Love Offering
As spiritual leaders, we understand several fundamental things: 1) We are all connected; 2) Each person possesses beauty and wisdom; and 3) The life we live gives us an opportunity each day to recognize our power and truth. And yet, if we know these things, it seems we are missing a grand opportunity to use our spiritual calling and wisdom to further social justice.
In the wake of the George Floyd murder and the related uprisings, there have been certainly been calls by leaders - both in the secular and spiritual space - to promote greater social justice and awareness. But if we’re being honest, there are times when the spiritual practitioner may delude themselves into thinking that socio-political engagement is separate from spiritual growth, or that the events of this world are less important than thoughts of the here-after. That is a mistake. We believe that spirituality requires full attention to the political and social events of the day. As practitioners, spirituality invites us to greater social awareness, and it most assuredly welcomes us to be more anti-racist.
This workshop is an introductory course designed to speak to spiritual practitioners who want to elevate their spiritual practice and use their personal platform to support greater racial equity and social justice. Specifically, this offering will have these key objectives:
1) Create a modern-day understanding of racism. 2) Highlight how racism impacts us in the spiritual community and prevents us from greater
spiritual growth. 3) Discuss spiritual bypassing and how it impedes inclusion and equity. 4) Identify practical steps for becoming a better champion for diversity, inclusion, and
This workshop is for you if:

This presentation is a 3-hour workshop designed to be personal, experiential, and creative. There will be a blend of individual, small group, and large group activities, and we will be engaging the head, the heart, and the body. It will be led by New Thought Practitioner Dr. Joel A. Brown and Rev. Dr. Nick van Santen of Pneumos LLC, a management consulting and coaching firm based in San Francisco dedicated to equity, growth, health, and transformation.
If you have been asking what you can do to make society a better place, this workshop will be a good place to start to address your own consciousness and comfort in confronting racism.
