Holding space for students’ pain while addressing our own healing in an oppressive system

Existing in an oppressive structure results in pain and trauma that can affect our students’ and our own mental and physical health. Yet, in an educational setting, we tend to stay in our “heads” and focused on the “academic” aspect of oppression, rather than exploring the ways the system hurts us personally. This workshop will attempt to bring us out of our academic space and into our bodies to dialogue about the challenges we face working towards the liberation of ourselves and our students. Can we build consciousness, address the healing of ourselves and our students, and balance the multiple responsibilities in the institutional role of professor/counselor/administrator/etc.? We will spend time sharing, dialoguing, and unpacking this difficult conflict in community.
