Online: Compassion and Allyship with River Wolton & Esther Slattery
14 May 2022 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Cultivating allyship means that we open to the suffering we would not otherwise notice and be moved to lessen it, motivated by compassion for all and from a foundation of embodiment, self-care and steadiness. Allyship asks us to untangle conditioning, become aware of unconscious bias and become actively compassionate to heal the wounds and micro-aggressions which arise when we create ‘other’.
This retreat will offer guided practices of mettā (friendliness) and self-compassion as foundations for the discernment, honesty and openness required to create collective change. We acknowledge that the term ‘allyship’ is imperfect, but it can offer a functional framework for learning.
As well as guided meditations, there will be reflections from the teachers and opportunities for discussion.
