Decolonization Toolkit - A Weekend Immersion

This immersion orients you to a map of the embodied path we must traverse in order to liberate yoga and wellness tools from their capitalist entrenchment and how to enter the realm of transformative justice. Our approach to learning is rooted in a decolonized framework, Indigenous methodologies, is BIPOC centered and utilizes experiential pedagogy.

This is not your average unpack-your-privilege workshop. This is a deep dive into theory and practice of how we move from defining the problem to resourcing ourselves for the journey. Together we co-create the potential that collective healing is possible.

It is time to dismantle inequitable cultures in the wellness industry and call out the rampant misappropriation of spiritual and wellbeing tools into weapons of self-hypnosis, gaslighting, spiritual bypass and abuse.

This course is appropriate for yoga & meditation teachers, healers, wellness practitioners, massage therapists, chiropractors, East & South Asian medicine practitioners, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers and nurses.


Activities include:

  • Community Ritual for Processing
  • Introduction to Language of Feelings and Deep Listening
  • Experience Peace Circle/Community Conflict Resolution Format
  • Self-Care for Practitioners
  • Deconstruction of Privilege
  • Developing Cultural Competencies
  • Critical Inquiry into Healing Justice
