Exploring Power and Privilege with Courage, Creativity, and Compassion

Facilitated by Ridhi D’Cruz - register here

As individuals and groups, we experience varying levels and different types of privileges and powers. Recognizing our relationship to oppression can bring feelings of guilt, shame, grief and more. How can we hold space for these feelings while also creating conditions for new insights to emerge that deepen our understanding of each other and ourselves? Join facilitator Ridhi D’Cruz for a conversation that explores how we face and transform oppression in our everyday lives.
