― angel Kyodo williams

WHAT IS IT?

Awakening to the Delusion of Whiteness is structured as an “affinity group” for white people to explore the elements that have contributed to this often unconscious identity. We explore in this way with an understanding that our own liberation/awakening is intimately bound to one another. Affinity groups are one way to lay groundwork to enlarge our understanding and prepare us to build authentic relationships and alliances.

This course is guided by engaged graduates of Awakening to the Delusion of Whiteness.
