Washington, D.C.: Untangling White Supremacy in Spiritual Practices and Communities

  • Potter's House 1658 Columbia Road Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States (map)

Have you been impacted by racism in spiritual spaces?

Are you curious about the ways in which you may be perpetuating racism in your spiritual communities?

Have you thought about the intersections of race, power, and spiritual community and want to hear others’ experiences?

Untangling White Supremacy in Spiritual Practices and Communities

is an inspired, interactive conversation from the viral blog post, Converting Hidden Spiritual Racism into Sacred Activism: An Open Letter to Spiritual White Folks.

Who

Intuitive astrologer, Virginia Rosenberg, and folk healing artist, Richael Faithful, come together to talk about the intersections of spirituality, racism, power, and community-building.

What

We will explore and unpack topics such as: “Light”-washing. Spiritual bypassing. Spiritual materialism. Financial exchange for healing/spiritual services. Prosperity gospel and Law of Attraction. Transcendence and escapism. Cultural appropriation. Judeo-Christian and colonizer/dominator narrative. Victim/Savior/Martyrdom. Blood and belonging. Race and human ecology.

We invite you into the conversation! This is an authentic and respectful dialogue of deep and active listening. Not to find solutions, but to allow healing evolutions to naturally spring forth from the collective. Join us in an intentional container to explore, understand, and deepen.

This live event will be recorded, and content may be used for ongoing writing projects. However, speakers will be kept confidential.
