"The work of liberation is bone deep. It is ancestral work of the highest level.
In order to dismantle these systems of oppression in the world we must also dismantle the systems as they exist within us and in our rituals and practices.
These systems shape our thoughts, beliefs, actions, culture and how we show up in the world.
External systems of oppression are sustained through how we internalize these systems. The external and the internal are not mutually exclusive, they are linked. We must dismantle both aspects of the systems lest we risk building new systems which reinforce oppression." ~ Tamira Cousett
Join EPIP Seattle for our first healing cohort. This 2-part, virtual session will be led by transformational consultant and visionary healer Amadeo Cruz Guiao. To learn more about her work click here. We ask that you commit to attending both sessions, so that we can build trust and community together.
Session 1:Monday, June 22, 2020 from 4-6pm
Reflective session with lots of community building. With a decolonizing lens and holistic framework, we'll explore and practice simple but powerful practices to heal ourselves in order to heal our communities. We will create a simple wellness plan with commitments you will make to yourself. How can we be fully present with our whole selves in order to show up in our full and authentic power in these momentous times?
Session 2: Wednesday, July 15, 2020 from 4-6pm
Facilitated discussion about healing in the context of philanthropy. Building on the previous workshop, we will learn about healing justice initiatives and best practices in philanthropy. Together, we will explore how to take the energy of the moment to create the changes we want to make in ourselves, our foundations, the communities we serve, and in the broader field of philanthropy. How do we create the future we want?
The healing cohort is open to all emerging philanthropic leaders in Washington State, and is free for active EPIP Seattle chapter members. We encourage a sliding scale $10-30 donation to support our work if you're not a member of EPIP. Also, if you're not yet a member, we encourage you to join! The more members we have, the larger budget we have to put on events like this.
