Kisîwâtisôwin: Self-Compassion Workshops for Indigiqueers

Self-Compassion is a practice in which we learn to be a good friend to ourselves when we need it most—to become an inner ally rather than an inner enemy. In this ​two-part virtual workshop series, we will explore how to hold more compassion for our whole selves, to the relationships we hold and to all levels of being. These workshops are open to all Indigenous students at the University of Toronto who identify as 2-Spirit, or LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, gender non-conforming, along with many other identities). Facilitated by Faith Chaput, Indigenous Wellness Counsellor and Coordinator, Health & Wellness and First Nations House and Jenn Flood, Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Coordinator- Education Lead.

Healing Through the Intersections: Race, Black Identity & Sexual Violence

Throughout October and November 2020, the University of Toronto Tri-Campus Sexual Violence Prevention & Support Centre is hosting Healing Through the Intersections: Race, Black Identity and Sexual Violence, a series of virtual workshops and conversations centered on anti-Black racism and sexual violence.

There is No I in We: Ancestral Memory of Anti-Black Racism and Sexual Violence with Melissa Taylor

Our grief and trauma today is with our ancestors’ grief & trauma of yesterday. Our grief is not limited to George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, and those who passed before them; it is a collective experience of systemic anti-black racism which leaves our nervous system in a constant state of fight, flight, freeze, and/or befriend. In this 1.5 hour workshop, *participants will learn about ancestral memory, how to recognize when one is re-living a traumatic experience, what is the nervous system, how to regulate your nervous system and the importance of collective care.
