Decolonizing the Heart Workshop – Deep Learning for Deep Change

Nov 30, 2019
Dec 07, 2019
Full Day Event
Toronto, ON, Toronto, ON

Decolonization: “Being guided in critically examining the historical, social, economic and political patterns and systems of power that have been formative in developing one’s own and one’s ancestors’ worldview and working to dismantle and transform one’s way of seeing and being in the world.” © 2019 D.M.L.
Reconciliation requires building relationships; building relationships requires more than coming together over issues; decolonizing our own hearts is necessary before we can work together for transformation.

We begin by sharing our stories.

We tell stories to make sense of our world. Using geno-graphing, we explore the stories into which we are born – the struggles of our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and further into our lineage. We strive to understand their lives within an historical, social, economic and political context. We need this grounding so that we can move beyond sympathy into empathy and compassion. With this compassion, we move beyond talking the talk to walking the walk.

THIS IS A 2-DAY WORKSHOP – Day 1 is November 30th, Day 2 is December 7th
