Oppression and Integral Consciousness: One Way to Move Beyond Polarization and Towards that Which is Beautiful, True, and Good!—Tracey Huguley
How might we share intercultural spaces with one another as allies and utilize integral consciousness as a tool for evolving consciously in these spaces?
The shackles of oppression potentially keep many of us stuck. This webinar will expand our awareness of oppression and illuminate where we might be acting in ways that are oppressive. We will also discuss ways we can act as allies with one other in these interesting times we are living in. What is oppression? And, as Paulo Freire might ask, how can we identify the oppressor within each of us? Also, we will look at integral consciousness as one way to move beyond our differences and mature individually while assisting our culture(s) in maturing collectively. In addition, we will look at ways we can loosen oppressive practices by utilizing the principles of integral consciousness and evolutionary spirituality to better our worlds by creating and experiencing that which is beautiful, true, and good.
Tracey Huguley M.A. earned her Master Arts in SelfDesign degree in August. She is the mother of three SelfDesign learners, a Master sign language interpreter, and an educator. She comes from, and has had direct experience with, communities that are oppressed. She is the adult child of Deaf adults, and her family is multi-cultural/multi-racial. Her Master’s thesis entitled "A Heroine's Journey As A Path Of Inquiry: The Reconciliation Of A Life Lived In An Intercultural Space Between The Deaf And The Hearing Communities" is a documentation of her personal journey of creating and experiencing that which is beautiful, good, and true and, in the end, freeing herself from some of the shackles of oppression that were keeping her stuck in the pain of her experiences. Ultimately, this journey has brought more freedom into her life and work. She enjoys sharing this process with others in hopes that we all might dwell in intercultural spaces in love and peace, while evolving consciously.
