This workshop will investigate privilege in new age and spiritual circles.
Leah will guide participants through an exploration of topics such as white supremacy, colonialism, racism, and cultural appropriation. Please note: you may encounter sensitive and potentially triggering content.
My name is Leah, I'm a human, masters student, researcher, sometimes a writer, sober woman in recovery and...I've never written a bio before! Here it goes. I'm currently pursuing a Master's degree in Developmental Psychology at OISE/U of T. I have many research interests which interact with my main focus on developmental psychopathology, including trauma and resilience, the neurobiological effects of mindfulness and meditation, embodied cognition, and cultural safety in counseling and psychoeducation. Currently I work with individuals experiencing drug and alcohol addiction and other mental health issues. I'm committed to practicing spiritual and political accountability.
