You know that racism exists and you want to do more to understand the inherent biases within you, as well as the systems of oppression you uphold. You want to understand your own history, your white identity, and learn how to be actively anti-racist.
But you feel stuck.
You know there are 10 different directions you could go in and you don’t know what your next step is.
You feel like not being racist is easy. But being anti-racist feels really complicated.
The Racial Healing Workshop for White Allies is not an anti-racist educational workshop. This is a spiritual workshop with guided meditation and group hypnosis to help you work through your own feelings of being stuck. We’ll do ancestral healing and self-hypnosis around the memory of an incident of racism or prejudice in your life.
What you’ll get out of this workshop:
- Messages from your ancestors that will help you understand how to move forward today
- Clarity on the next step in your own anti-racist work. This will allow you to let go of the overwhelming amount of information online right now and focus your energy and attention on where you can be of most service.
Hi, I’m Iris Higgins.
I graduated from New York University with a master’s degree in psychology and am a certified hypnotherapist (with an emphasis in past life regressions). My original intention when getting my master’s degree was to pursue a PhD in social psychology. As a biracial (black/white) woman who looks white, I wanted to study race and appearances. But spirit led me down a different path – a very long and winding one! – that ended with a hypnotherapy certification from Bastyr University outside of Seattle.
I am an INFJ, complete introvert, and would live in books if I could. When I discovered hypnotherapy, I felt like for the first time in my life, I had found a healing modality that worked exactly the way my brain did: in emotionally vivid stories that intertwined and went in all directions. I had to learn the tools of hypnotherapy to practice it but I felt from day one that I was meant to do this type of work.
I love that the power of hypnotherapy can help us change our beliefs and behaviors and I love that hypnotherapy can be used for pretty much anything! While I work primarily with women entrepreneurs, I also use hypnotherapy for chronic illness, racial healing, and so much more!
