Changing The Race Dance Workshop says
Join Soyinka Rahim and Cynthia Winton-Henry for the "Changing the Race Dance" workshop on December 11th, from 7:00 to 9:30 PM at the Shambhala Meditation Center of Atlanta.

Sliding Scale: $10-$20

Soyinka and Cynthia offer the "Changing the Race Dance" workshop as a new way of conversing about racism. Using InterPlay’s tested educational body wisdom tools, they share the power of movement, stillness, story, and song to create spaces where noticing, plain talk, being heard and affirmed is an essential part of being together in a new dance that takes socialized systemic racism seriously.

Changing the Race Dance helps participants uncover insights, strengthen inner authority AND celebrate freedom and health for all by teaching
• Respectful body-to-body connection and why racism is hard to stop if not treated on a body level.
• Chants that celebrate the choice to move away from racism
• Empowering opportunities to address racism and unpack inequity with fewer words and more wisdom.
• A way of witnessing that nourishes dignity and respect.
• How those who dance on behalf of one another can change historic patterns.

We share deep dismay at the perpetuation of racism, and ways we continue to miss the mark as loving people. If racism is about hate and division of bodies, it makes sense that substantive change needs to include body, mind, heart, and spirit, through new social patterns. Are we ready to do a different dance----TOGETHER? --Soyinka Rahim and Cynthia Winton-Henry
