This course invites us into the profound work of understanding the multiple overlapping forms of oppression we often inadvertently participate in perpetuating and developing spiritual practices that enable us to take an honest look at ourselves and to imagine ways of living beyond these oppressive dynamics. We are all embedded within and act out of systems that are based on the unjust exercise of power or authority. These oppressive actions and systems diminish us, divide us, and inhibit the full manifestation of God’s love and justice in this world.
Because it is often the case that when we explore intersecting systems of oppression, race tends to fall out of consideration, we will hold as central cultivating spiritual practices that form us for the work of dismantling racism and white supremacy both in our world and in ourselves.
