TO BE RESCHEDULED: Cultural Conversations: “Say His Name – Healing from our Collective Cultural Trauma in the age of George Floyd”, Session One (Online)
Session One: Embracing Empathy
How do we increase our capacity to care about others? In essence, we must learn to listen completely. Exercises to help increase our understanding of empathy will allow us to transition into a place of understanding and ultimately peace.
Dr. Dana Patterson has worked with Folkmoot for three years to engage the Folkmoot community with resources that have helped to deconstruct our deeply held cultural beliefs that cause unhealthy, sometimes racist behaviors. Dana’s approach is of acceptance and building new awareness, where participants are welcomed to make mistakes and examine their preconceived thoughts and feelings. Online classes will be participatory, interactive and a safe learning environment for people of all backgrounds. Cultural Conversations will be expanded in the spring to include in-person training events for the community, student groups, businesses and corporations.
Workshop will be held via Zoom and Facebook Live, once a month, between August and December always on Tuesday
Ticket price: $25 per session, or $100 for five sessions (Package available until August 11)
