The pain from everyday situations of oppression often leaves us feeling overwhelmed, trapped, voiceless, and powerless.
So we find ourselves even more unable to respond because they've become so emotionally charged for us.
In a world that tells us that our pain isn't real, it's a radical act to give yourself that validation.
Learn how to heal the harm done by systemic oppression starting with the person most important to you - yourself.
And when we take care of our pain, we also build our capacity to address the everyday injustice around us.
In this webinar, Sandra Kim will share the most critical aspect of the Compassionate Activism model that teaches how to respond to everyday oppression with love and justice.
- The ways systemic oppression has taught us to deny and suppress our feelings and pain
- How to give our experiences as marginalized people the acknowledgement and validation we're too often denied
- How to skillfully get present to the underlying pain in a way that is not overwhelming and is actually a relief with the practice of mindfulness
- 3 quick tools you can use to start healing the pain in any moment
