About the Event
Decolonization is the process of undoing and unlearning the impacts and traumas of colonization, usually through cultural and psychological healing. It is past due that we open the discussion on decolonizing spiritual and wellness practices, as we navigate through the "Renewed Age".
In this course, you will be guided through Energy Healing techniques, histories, and decolonized perspectives on approaching this work with a higher level of Awareness, empathy, and understanding.What we'll be learning:
- How to access Energy Healing + techniques for your daily life
- How to decolonize our Spiritual and wellness practices
- The complex history behind Energy Healing practices (including a look into Reiki healing)
- How to reclaim practices with higher Awareness and avoid appropriation
- Tools to use Energy Healing for yourself and your work
There will be ample time for Q+A's, group discussion, and breaks when needed. Participants are asked to have a journal and a pen handy for personal notes and some journalling exercises. A recording of our session will be sent to participants.

Q: Is this course being taught for a specific culture or practice only?
A: Although I'll be drawing from personal experiences and examples as a filipinx person, this course is meant to be a learning experience for people of all ethnicities and backgrounds. I especially encourage QTBIPOC, LGBTQ2S folx to participate and take part in the conversation and collective learning.
