Science of Mind Principles & Race: A New Perspective

Saturday, March 17, 2018 - 12:00pm - 5:00pm

A 4-Week Workshop on Saturdays, March 10 through March 31, facilitated by Dr. Kathleen Perkins, Rev. Larry King, and Mrs. Barbara O'Hare.

This interactive workshop provides an analysis of the systems that keep racism in place, and how practicing Science of Mind Principles can change our collective race consciousness.
We will examine why people are poor, how institutions and organizations perpetuate the imbalance of power, and who benefits from the maintenance of the status quo. As we strive to understand what racism is, (moving beyond a focus of the symptoms), participants will: Analyze power. Recognize the internalized manifestations of racial oppression evidenced as both Internalized Racial Inferiority and Internalized Racial Superiority.-Define racism.-Learn from history.-Share cultures.-Organizing for change.-Explore how New Thought Principles can be used to advocate for change.
The goal is for participants to understand the manifestations of racism – Racism operates in more than just individual and institutional settings. We will examine the dynamics of cultural racism, linguistic racism, and militarism as applied to racism.
Investment: $180

Since joining this spiritual community four years ago, I no longer think of myself as a chronically ill person. I am well in mind, body, and spirit.
