The Liberation and Learning series covers some familiar territory, identity, privilege and marginalization, though what is really unique is that we focus on reclaiming all that was taken from us in our socialization into whiteness and masculinity, a holistic healing journey that engages, mind, body, emotion and soul. And the journey is taken inside a community of really amazing men.
Facilitated by: Dan Roller & Brett Mueller
When we think of the impact of inequity, marginalization, oppression and injustice, we think of the groups that are undeniably harmed: Black, Indigenous, People of Color, women and LGBTQ and non-binary folx, people with disabilities, working-class people and others.
What is less obvious and rarely discussed is the impact on white men; how they too are harmed in the very systems that privilege them, at a cost we can no longer bear. Both history and science provide evidence of how white men are being harmed and the impact of the unhealed harm they experience projected out into the world. This is one of many reasons why this conversation is so crucial.
While this series takes us on a journey to learn how we are harmed in systems that privilege and marginalize us, we also explore those parts of ourselves that we can now reclaim. This is the liberatory part of the journey and the main reason for taking this journey in the first place.
Are you interested in learning more about the harms that culture, socialization, and systemic injustice creates for ourselves, our relationships, and our impact in the world?
