Lasting Change Begins Within
FACILITATION WITH JENNIE
Specializing in work with white-identified people in yoga, wellness, and healing communities, Jennie is an anti-racist facilitator who is committed to justice, equity, and connection to heart. She prioritizes unlearning her own racism and inviting other white folks into the important work of examining their impact. Her facilitation takes an approach where personal relationships, communication, and community are key. She believes lasting change begins within ourselves, and in close relationships with friends, families, and co-workers. Her work emphasizes deep listening and connecting.
Jennie meets white people where they are, and holds them accountable to their responsibility in unlearning their racism and understanding the complexities of their privilege. This deep, inner work cannot happen in a vacuum, and instead grows and gains momentum as we work in collective community. Always learning and growing alongside others, Jennie embraces the messiness of this work as a white person showing up for racial justice.
Her training and studies through Stirfry Seminars have had a huge influence on her facilitation. Jennie completed a two year Mindfulness Facilitation Certification Program among many other intensive on-site workshops. She’s grateful for all she continues to learn from her teachers, Rainbow Markel and Lee Mun Wah, as well as her close-knit cohort of folks from across the country.
Her journey as a lifelong learner, teacher, and educator also informs her facilitation work. Jennie's experience facilitating groups reaches back to her work as an outdoor educator, high school teacher, and yoga teacher trainer. Her passion for connection with other humans permeates the challenging work of exploring racism and fighting systems of oppression.
