Just like different forms of racism work in tandem with each other to reinforce racist ideas, behaviors, systems, and policy, anti-racism and the active and conscious effort to dismantle racism also takes many forms. In the midst of its varying forms in contemporary society, what would it be like to frame the work of anti-racism as a daily spiritual practice?   
  
Using clinical case examples and Ibram Kendi’s book, How to be an Anti-Racist as a starting point, this workshop will explore the concept of anti-racism from both a theological and psychological perspective and will frame the work of anti-racism as a daily spiritual discipline. Specifically, this workshop will utilize Cognitive Behavior Theory and Thomistic Theology’s concept of habitus to examine the unconscious, covert, unintentional aspects of racism; consider the relationship between thoughts, behaviors, and emotions in the work of anti-racism; and suggest spiritual practices that cultivate anti-racist lives and identities.   
   
As a result of participating in this workshop, participants will:  
  • Understand the unconscious, covert unintentional aspects of racism  
  • Consider how Cognitive Behavioral Theory and Thomistic Theology’s concept of habitus can be helpful frameworks for understanding and addressing the unconscious, covert, unintentional aspects of racism.  
  • Explore spiritual practices that cultivate anti-racist lives and identities.
