A Class Presented By Dra. Rocio Rosales Meza
Unlearning & Divesting from the White Colonial Mind
If you've been doing the work for a while, but feel something has been missing. It has, and this is it.
This is decolonial shadow work. This is not diversity and inclusivity work. This is beyond anti-racism work.
This is the spiritual journey work of unlearning & divesting from colonial whiteness. This is divesting from the white colonial mind.
What is the white colonial mind? Why have you been indoctrinated to be oblivious to it? Why is your unlearning of it necessary to not collude with colonial systems nor perpetuate harmful colonial ways? Why is divesting crucial to a better world? And why is your healing necessary too?
Join me for a transformative weekend of healing & divesting.
We need ALL OF US.
Saludos beloved, I’m Dra. Rocio
I’m a Seer, a Medicine Woman, & I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology. I am also a mama, and a anti-capitalist feminist, womanist, muxerista.
What I bring in my work with folx is my intuitive and psychic abilities as well as my clinical training and teaching experience as a tenured professor. I have 20 years of experience conducting cultural, social, and psychological research, 17 years of experience as a healer in counseling & coaching, and 16 years of experience teaching courses in anti-oppressive work and helping skills. I am multiskilled and yet, what I feel are my unique gifts are my heart, my sense of compassion, my visionary leadership, and my ability to tap into the spiritual realms.
I come from a long line of healers and my Seer abilities have always been with me, since childhood. I am committed to ongoing learning so that I can be of the highest service and am currently on the Medicine Woman path in an apprenticeship with Pampa Mesayoq Don Alejandro Apaza of the Qero Inca Nation and Initiated Mesa Carrier and Medicine Woman Marilu Shinn. I am also a Reiki practitioner learning traditional Japanese Reiki from traditional Japanese Reiki educator Marika Clymer.
As my ancestors did, it is my highest calling and passion to walk this journey with you to facilitate your healing and unlearning with the intention of birthing the New Earth.
I hold the highest vision for all and lovingly and fiercely carry out the work I am called to do, decoloinal and spiritual.
May you honor the call.
As the prophecies of many Indigenous nations share, the new earth will be birthed by being in harmony and balance with all of humanity, Mother Earth, and all of creation.
The time is now and as my Elder and Teacher, Pampamesayoq Don Alejandro Apaza reminded me we need white folx to be in alignment too.
White folx must do the work to be in right relationship and unlearn the ways they've learned to engage as the colonizer, they must unlearn the white colonial mind.
In this introductory class, you will receive teachings, though it is not meant to be processed with the mind, but rather the heart. This is heart and soul work, this is shadow work.
While introductory teachings will be offered, it is not meant to be focused on content, but rather the process. For true healing and unlearning, the teachings must be processed somatically, spiritually, emotionally.
Some of the topics will include:
How colonization & whiteness are linked
The internalized colonizer
Subconscious white colonial programming and behaviors
How white colonial programming shows up in spirituality, education, wellness, societal "norms"
How whiteness becomes "normal"
How colonizer behavior and the colonial mind is socialized & imprinted
Characteristics of White Supremacy
Power dynamics and why giving up power is a MUST
White colonial culture and how it dehumanizes you too
White Saviorism & colonization in the name of "progress"
Decentering & Unlearning Whiteness
Lingering and Insidious forms of control/colonization
Distorted patterns of thinking and relating
How to be in right relationship with BIPOC
Amplifying BIPOC voices not being their voice
Owning privilege & Exploring cultural roots
The metaphysics of colonization as an agreed upon reality, ontology AND an earthly reality to dismantle
The role of white folx in the movement
Being a lifelong student of the movement
*Q & A and processing emotions in circle
This offering is a class and a circle. Dr. Rocio's work is at the same time decolonial and spiritual. It is meant to be participatory and you will have an opportunity to ask Dra. Rocio questions to receive clarity and guidance about your role in the movement. You will receive teachings and guidance about the colonizer mentality and colonial behaviors you must bring into consciousness so that your behavior is not colonizing BIPOC.
You will receive teachings as well as healing and unlearning. Thus, this will happen in a small container of 35 people. Dr. Rocio will make herself available to teach and create a sacred container, and at the same time will hold firm boundaries as she refuses to let this work come at her expense. This offering will be available when Dr. Rocio has the capacity.
This class is meant for white folx that are actively engaged in their anti-racism work and that acknowledge their white privilege and are ready to do the work of unlearning how they are engaging in colonial behavior, so that they do not show up as colonizers.
This class and experience is meant for white folx that seek to be in right relationship and alignment with the new earth. This class and experience is meant for the folx that feel deeply called to do this work, from their heart and soul, rather than for performative reasons or for adding this to your resume.
This is for spiritual folx, for those that embrace their divine feminine, and are seeking the decolonial, seeking to unsettle.
This is for folx that are seeking to be in alignment and integrity with the decolonial movement and the new earth.
Engaging in this class will not mean that you will have unlearned colonial programming as a white person and that your journey is over, it is only the beginning.
