Workshop on healing old wounds and returning to primal trust: The Pandemic as an Opportunity for Self-Discovery

Coming together as a group, meditating together, exercises for healing old wounds, common spaces for reflection: What are my fears? What are my tools for dealing with them? These fears will be recycled together and released as energy for self-determination in love, gratitude and humility. We will also refer here to our role in our communities and create a common calm, healing and grateful place.

My name is Griselda Enciso and I am Afroperuvian.
After a long search through different cultures and courses of study, I finally faced my calling as a healer / curandera (medicine woman) in my voluntary exile in Berlin. This “yes” is synonymous with an unconditional acceptance of the gifts of my ancestors. I work with great joy inspired by my spiritual guardians using homeopathy, techniques from systemic constellations and Afroperuvian dances.

 

In.Solidarity II – In Covid, Crisis & Care: Möglichkeiten des Allyship

für weiße Menschen mit Tuğba Tanyılmaz und Anifa Heinrich // 10-15 Uhr

This workshop will take place online and in german spoken language.

Sei es im Team, in der Hochschule, im Seminar, auf der Arbeit, in der pädagogischen Praxis oder im privaten Bereich – Rassismus ist überall präsent und oft doch unerkannt. Guter Wille allein reicht oft nicht aus, um diskriminierende Äußerungen oder Handlungen zu vermeiden. Um Rassismus und Diskriminierungen zu erkennen und das eigene Verhalten zu ändern bzw.  Strukturen zu beeinflussen, müssen weiße Menschen ihre eigene Position reflektieren können und lernen unterstützend reagieren und agieren zu können.  

In diesem Workshop bieten wir weißen Menschen einen Ort für einen (fachlichen) Austausch der pädagogischen Praxis und Reflexion der eigenen Person, sowie der strukturellen und institutionellen Ebenen von Rassismus. In dem Workshop konzentrieren wir uns auf die Einführung zu dem Thema, sowie auf eine persönliche Auseinandersetzung.  

Die Schulungen soll sich vor allem an weiße Menschen richten, die sich bereits mit Themen von Diskriminierung, Anti-Rassismus / Critical Whiteness und Allyship beschäftigt haben. In dem Workshop können die Teilnehmenden gezielte Kenntnisse rund um Thema »Diskriminierung, Rassismus und Allyship« weiter sammeln und ausbauen. Die gesellschaftliche Realität wird hierbei als Einführung gegeben und schließlich der Zusammenhang zwischen ihren bereits existierenden Lehrmethoden bzw. Lehrinhalten und den fehlenden Inhalten hergestellt. Aufbau und fachliche Konkretisierungen orientieren sich an den Teilnehmer_innen.

In.Solidarity II – In Covid, Crisis & Care: Allyship & Awareness

for BIPoC with Can Tunç and Juliana Kolberg // 10am-3pm

This workshop will take place online and German and English spoken language is possible – Let’s help each other out!

Crises are (traumatic) challenges. The more we experience, the more likely we are to remain in a state of survival and, because that’s what we need, keep a focus on ourselves. Community, on the other hand, sees itself as networking with each other, for some as (surrogate) family, for others as safe space, but either way as a shared space. How can this be brought together?

In this workshop we want to discuss the balance with ourselves and the awareness and allyship for and in our communities. Can self-care also be in the form of solidarity? How do we protect ourselves and at the same time our siblings, friends, fellow activists? Where do we need more solidarities? And how can we deal with our privileges and deprivileges?


Black and white photo of Can Tunç smiling into the camera with glasses in a portrait cut-out.

Can Tunç has been working as part of the ComE In project team since January 2020 and is active in the area of intersectional inclusion via GLADT e.V.. In this project area, Can coordinates processes with white LGBTIQ* institutions in order to achieve more inclusivity in their structures. From the position of a Kurdish queer of colour, Can is interested in perspectives of queer of colour critique and works on the topics of awareness, critical whiteness and postcolonial critique of racism and power.

Juliana Kolberg (no pronoun) has been working in the ComE In project since the beginning of 2020 and is here responsible for the area of empowerment. Juliana is also project manager of xart splitta. Juliana’s main topics are empowerment, queerness, intersectionality as well as discrimination-critical language, especially from the perspectives of queer Black diasporic movements. For more than 10 years, Juliana has been making racism-critical, intersectional awareness concepts for, with and in different contexts, as well as being an activist with and in, primarily, queer BIPoC communities.

In.Solidarity II – In Covid, Crisis & Care: Empowerment Crisismanagement & (Self-) Care

for BIPoC with Dee // 10am-3pm

This workshop will take place in presence and in English spoken language.

This workshop is an invitation to create your own self-care toolbox for challenging times. 

All of us have life experience, self-knowledge and resources available to us – usually more than we think! How can we harness these resources to soothe, regulate and empower? To carry us through hard times? And how do we care for ourselves in situations that we can’t change or solve at this moment?

In this workshop we will identify situations that trigger us, learn to recognize when we are in survival mode, explore the individual and shared resources we have, and compile this knowledge into a tool to use when things are tough.

You will leave the workshop with a physical toolbox full of ideas and resources to care for yourself. It’s gonna be fun and we’re going to get creative!


Dee (she/her) is a certified life coach, kink coach and death doula with a range of classic, creative and unconventional tools under her belt to support you on your path.

Her approach is one of balance, of finding ways to navigate this material world in a way that meets your needs while remaining true to yourself – of being human in a world in flux.

Her experience is informed not only by her formal qualifications, but most importantly by her upbringing in the tropics, her eagerness to try anything once and her own ongoing process of growth and change, the lessons of which she is here to share.

In.Solidarity II – In Covid, Crisis & Care

Here comes another round of In.Solidarity – Pls. find here what we did last year, together with the ndo

Images from top right to bottom left: Three Covid-Virus, xart splitta logo, hands with hearts joining in circle, speech bubble with heart, logo Migrationrat Berlin and logo ComE In - Community, Empowerment, Intersectional.

In Covid, Crisis & Care we will discuss the covid-19 pandemic, crises and (self-) care from a cross-community perspective. Crises are not uncommon, especially for people with intersectional experiences of discrimination; stressful or traumatic experiences are rather an everyday life reality. However, a common global pandemic is a new dimension for all of us. Therefore, we would like to talk about: 2 years of Covid – what have we learned and how will it continue?
Which coping strategies have BIPoC communities developed for crises so far? Which ones have changed in the Covid 19 pandemic? Which ones are new? What are similar and different starting points, experiences and consequences? What could be a useful actual allyship? Where do we need more solidarity(s) with each other? 

In the four workshops we will discuss possibilities of support, allyship and empowerment from different perspectives and with the support of different inputs. Afterwards, we will end the day together with a closing panel. In this panel, we will bring together the discussions of the workshops and jointly envision and address future perspectives.
