Challenging the dynamics of racism and being able to let go of power 

Crossing the boundaries of race

SEMINAR with Ana Rhodes Castro 

Issues of diversity, inclusion and exclusion are very present for all of us in our socio-cultural and political contexts. We all belong to a wide variety of social groups relating to race, gender, sexuality, class, age, educational background etc. In all of these groups we can see patterns of Power, Oppression and Privilege. Dynamics of unconscious use of Power if not addressed, become part of our everyday interactions and a process of external and internal oppression becomes active in our relationships. One of the reasons why Racism is a painful and difficult subject to engage with is because it carries within historical issues such as slavery, colonialism and different interracial conflicts accumulated over time. We need to be willing to go beyond our comfort zones and learn to hold racial tension in a safe space. Come and let’s co-create the space together! And remember that it may not be comfortable but we are all needed in the journey of learning to live well with one another.

The seminar is held in Italian and English and it’s open to external public. 

Topics of the Seminar 

In this Experiential Training, we will focus on Race being aware that many other forms of oppression can be seen through the lens of racisms. Welcoming and being part of conversations on the race between us requires Courage, Honesty and the meta-skill of Loving Kindness communication.

These conversations tend to bring up strong feelings of discomfort, anger, pain and anxiety, while so many of us prefer to be silent, avoid the topic altogether while others of us tend to minimise its importance and impact.

We will explore some terms and educational components needed when talking about Race and Racism as well as the role that socialisation plays in these dynamics.

This space is dedicated for learning ways to decentralize power, celebrate it and share it with all life as the Sun shares its warmth with all of us and the Earth holds us all equally.

We will take time to understand and challenge the collective model of White Supremacy as a long term river of privileges and reflect on what will support us in to the future to Talk about Race more openly and freely.


A seminar for all those who feel discriminated against, who have undergone the exercise of power, who want to understand how Processwork can help to read and overcome the dynamics of racism, for psychologists, psychotherapists and community workers who work with different cultures and with the management of individuals and groups.
