Terri Karis
A racially stratified culture is a culture of disconnection – disconnection not just from others, but also from aspects of ourselves and our own bodies. Buddhist teachings provide a means for exploring our embodied, self-protective strategies of disconnection, as well as a path for more fully inhabiting our bodies as the mooring and support for all our activities – including connecting across differences and disrupting whiteness. In this experiential workshop we will consider the historical and cultural circumstances that have shaped how we relate to our bodies, investigate our own strategies of disconnection, and engage in body-based practices of grounding and reconnection that will support action in the world to challenge racism
