ELIMINATING THE EFFECTS OF RACISM ON OUR WORK TO SUSTAIN ALL LIFE

Barbara Love

In our workshops we share our perspective on current environmental issues and how we have used the tools of Re-evaluation Counseling to free ourselves and others from emotional hurts that have interfered with our thinking and functioning. Our workshops are interactive, giving participants the chance to share their experiences and be listened to. 

Overview of Workshop:

Racism has had a deeply damaging and divisive effect on everyone. Understanding and healing the effects of racism on us as individuals is a necessary step in creating a movement that can sustain all life and restore the environment.
