Session overview: similar structure to the Waterline EE in terms of introduction and getting the ball rolling.
In a circle the instructors and students each share a time when they felt discrimination. (1-2 minutes per person). After each person speaks the entire circle says, “I love you” directed at that person.
Post activity discussion:
- Were you surprised that everyone has felt discrimination? Is it any surprise that it is universal?
- Does it feel good to say, “I love you”? Did it feel good to hear it?
- Does love counter discrimination? Is love universal?
- When we love someone do we stop seeing them in terms of arbitrary labels and embrace their full existence?
- What happens when we discriminate? How did it feel to be discriminated against?
- Does this help you relate to people who experience more discrimination? Does it give you a strategy for countering discrimination?
