08-10-2024 From the Inside Out: Decolonizing Self-Love

How do we know we love ourselves when we contain multitudes? Whose language do we use to define our “enoughness”? What does writing our own stories look like in a world where people are increasingly divesting from colonial, oppressive perspectives of true love?

Explore these questions and more in this interactive workshop where Maria Minnis will guide us in interrogating our deeply ingrained patterns and beliefs around truly seeing and loving our inner selves. Participants will learn about and practice ways to address internalized biases, double-consciousness, and blocks around showing up more bravely and authentically. The workshop will also cover how to create self-care practices that disrupt mythical norms perpetuated by cultural imperialism and patriarchy.

The hybrid class will include a lecture, individual & group activities, discussion, and time for questions.

In preparation for the workshop, please gather the following items:

  • Pen and paper or a journal
  • Any ritual tools you may need to set your container (i.e. candles, a bowl of water and salt, cleansing herbs, etc.)
  • Snacks and drinks for nourishment!

For those attending IN PERSON:

We'll be gathering together at Seagrape Apothecary from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Please arrive a little early to get settled in. For the sake of the container we're holding, and to minimize distractions, we'll be locking the doors 10 minutes after class starts. Please keep this in mind while making travel arrangements!

Seagrape Apothecary is now located at 2823 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, Oregon 97232. Please DO NOT park in the Centaur Guitar parking lot! There's residential parking available just one block away, and a bus stop directly in front of the store for folks taking public transit.
