$0.00 Yoga Book Club
Need a Juneteenth activity?
For our next Yoga Book Club, we'll read, reflect and discuss Such a Fun Age to honor Juneteenth in community. (Start reading now!)
Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid aptly explores the tensions between white allyship and the black experience by a juxtaposition of the day to day struggles of white bodied allyship with everyday racism.
Recommended by one of our own BIPOC healing circle regulars, this is a great book to read to learn and examine the practical realities, difficulties and challenges of being a BIPOC ally and also handles the experience of racism in a nuanced and relatable way.
Colleen Brisport Sequeda, a facilitator of Lighthouse's BIPOC healing circle will facilitate the discussion and extends a special invitation to all white bodied and BIPOC healing circle attendees.
Let's read this together and see how it helps us unearth the common yet complicated challenges of combating racism in our personal lives.
Online - bring your lunch to Zoom and get ready to power up your antiracism work!
