Unpacking Identity, Care and Healing: An IBPOC-only wellbeing workshop series

by Lisa Hoang

Note: This Zoom workshop series is a safe place: The workshops are not reordered and there will not be any breakout rooms. You will not be picked to answer questions. There will be moments where there will be self-reflective questions and it is up to you to share to the group (if you’re comfortable)—you’re not obligated at all. Slides are shared. This is a four-part workshop series with four different themes—there is still time to attend the latter half of the two sessions.

Upcoming remaining sessions:

3. Financial trauma

The topic of finances can bring up a lot of complicated feelings. If you’ve ever struggled with your relationship with money or noticed the ways that culture, identity and generational messaging impact how you approach (or avoid) finances, this workshop is for you. 

We invite you to join Part 3 where you can expect to better understand what financial trauma is, how it develops, its relationship to culture and identity and how it may show up in your life now. 

Practical skills for healing from financial trauma and the emotional ties around money will be shared throughout to support building a healthier relationship with money.

Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2024

Time: 11 am–12 pm PST

4. Belonging, identity and community care

When was the last time you truly felt like you belonged somewhere or with someone? Join us for Part 4 centered on all things belonging, identity, and community care. 

In this workshop, we will explore the nature of belonging as it relates to our relationships, intersecting identities, needs and community. Together, through education, reflective exercises and realistic tools we will acknowledge, unpack, and create opportunities to re-define the ways we understand community and connection. This workshop aims to be a safe space to develop insight on your own experiences and history and leave you with practical ways to understand yourself and your community better.
