Preparing for circle:
You will receive a Google Meet link the day before the circle. The circle is "meeting style"; which means you will have the option of having your camera on or off and please mute your mic upon entry. We encourage you to create an intentional, holding space for yourself before logging on. Below are some suggestions.
Find a comfortable, safe space to tune in from.
Find a grounding sitting/laying position. Perhaps the floor with a cushion or mat.
Make yourself something warm to drink (coffee/tea).
Stay hydrated, have water next to you.
Light a candle or sacred smoke.
Journal write or write down your intention for the circle.
Gather grounding tools such as crystals, essential oils, flowers, incense, etc.
Have some light, healthy snacks accessible should you get hungry.
Most importantly, always honor your needs during circle.
Imposter Syndrome: Empowering BIPOC College Students
When: September 16, 2023
Time: 11 am - 1 pm
Where: Kenneth Hahn State Park (outdoor event)
Cost: $15-$25 (sliding scale)
For many college students, imposter syndrome is a common dynamic that shows up as the demands of academia increase. Unfortunately, for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) college students, there are additional layers that greatly increases imposter syndrome and the impact it has on academic capacity as well as on our mental health and wellness.
In this workshop, our aim is to create a safe and inclusive space to explore and share through dialogue, grounding exercises and a paired activity to affirm our place in academia and our role as college students (and beyond). Our existence is resistance!
