The Primal Directive

From Unconscious to Conscious: Reclaiming Ourselves from the Hidden Impact of Racism


 Racism isn’t always bigotry. This workshop is designed to discover, bring attention to, and heal where the systems and structures of racism and trauma affect human biases and behavior. So many kind, well intended, thoughtful humans are playing out the dynamics of racism without ever knowing it.


Did you know that perfectionism, indecisiveness, and exhaustion could be symptoms of white supremacy culture within you? 

The behavior patterns of white supremacy culture* dovetail so many of the symptoms of trauma and/or patterns of a triggered emotional fight/flight/freeze response. 

Do you see yourself in this list of possible symptoms of white supremacy culture?

  • Perfectionism
  • Save and Rescue (fix it)
  • Defensiveness – Resistance – Denial (I’m fine)
  • Paternalism – Indecisiveness – Confusion (issues with authority/control)
  • Either/Or Thinking (good/bad, right/wrong, with us/against us)
  • Exhaustion/Apathy (I can’t – I’ll never get there – this is impossible)
  • Sense of Urgency (can’t get things done fast enough)

This workshop is designed to look at the core functioning of the survival brain as it relates to white supremacy culture, patriarchy, and capitalism. Our intention is to interrupt the unconscious ways our brains are wired to serve the racist initiatives that the United States was built on.

Explore with us how trauma, the fight, flight, freeze response, and the indoctrination of white supremacy culture might actually offer a key to dismantle oppression internally, and may help us dismantle racism and oppression in society. This workshop will be a learning lab, an intuitive deep dive that arises and is informed by participants’ experiences.

We hope you’ll join us for this profound exploration and healing journey.
