Engaging with Privilege

50


50 per hour - Virtual OK

Do you long to face privilege in a way that moves beyond the predominant framework of guilt, denial, and defensiveness and instead embrace a path with choice, empowerment, and care?

Do you want to bring awareness and empathy to transforming oppression in a way that’s healthy and regulative for your nervous system, and which increases your capacity to communicate about perceived power inequalities with others from a place of groundedness?

Do you want to be supported in playing with your discomforts and increase your resourcefulness to receive feedback across power differences?

This session is designed to cultivate and unlock your potential for creating real and positive change within how we relate to privilege and can tap into our innate capacity to care for others. Through empathy, exploration, and inquiry we can all be supported in working towards a more interdependent world.

For those interested in understanding more thoroughly the structure of this session, I use a framework I call The Four Principles of Engaging with Privilege: The Positive and Negative Path, to outline how our culture typically frames exploration and confrontation around privilege and involving a more regenerative solution I’ve discovered through the work of Miki Kashtan. Below is a short outline:
The Negative Path- Denial/Invisibility, Guilt/Shame, Defensiveness, Entitlement
The Positive Path- Owning the Privilege, Learning about Privilege, Opening to Receiving Feedback, Stewarding Privilege for the Benefit of All

Training & Qualifications

Kevin is a kind, generous, open heart who skillfully highlights the needs of all involved. I so appreciate how willing he was to share himself as well... as ask for what he needed. His self-awareness facilitated emotional safety for both of us. I had a great time unpacking his dreams and next steps. Good luck, Kevin!show more
