Up until recently, there has been a noticeable lack of Black and Brown faces being promoted as instructors in the field of Western Tantra.
Many of the “teachers” of both modern and classical Tantra in the West are white and have achieved “success” in part due to the structures of white supremacy, implicit bias, and social and financial inequities.
But what impact does only having white Tantra teachers have on the ability of Black and Brown people to access these teachings? And what barriers are there for people of color in not only learning these practices but becoming Tantra Teachers?
Join Devi Ward Erickson and Certified Authentic Tantra Practitioner, Certified Sexologist, and Social Justice Activist, Ahmane Glover as they discuss:
- What does it mean to be an anti-racist
- What are some of the ways racism and implicit bias are currently demonstrated in the field of modern and traditional tantra?
- Why is it vital to address racism and implicit bias in Tantra?
- The healing potential of these practices, specifically for Black people.
- How to make these teachings more accessible.
