About this trip

Together, we will face the truth of our nation's history of racial terror and violence, self reflect on the ways each of us have upheld and perpetuated white supremacy in our lives, and embrace our ability to affect change and dismantle racism, first within ourselves, and then in our families and communities.

Our purpose is to listen to and learn from Black leadership, utilize antiracism tools, resources and yoga philosophy to strategize ways to do less harm, be better co-conspirators to BIPOC and develop ways to move forward with mindful action toward collective liberation.

Once registered, participants will receive soul assignments, which is basically pre-work (books, podcasts, documentaries, etc) to help them get started on building a solid foundation for their personal anti-racism journey.

We invite you to engage in this transformational experience as we delve into these courageous conversations with Myisha T, who will be leading the trip.


Founder of the Check Your Privilege organization and contributor and Editor of the Check Your Privilege anthology, Myisha T is a human-design generator and MBTi ENFJ with action-oriented justice in her blood. A single mom of 3 differently abled children, Myisha is also a mental health advocate and social entrepreneur. An advocate for healing and social transformation, Myisha continues to center the work of Check Your Privilege from a mental health perspective, using self-compassion practices and reflection to help white folx step back, reflect, and compassionately dismantle their relationship with power, privilege, and oppression. When she's not guiding the practice of those engaged with Check Your Privilege, Myisha lives her role as a mental health advocate to facilitate wellness workshops and peer support groups with black, brown and indgenious womxn through a restorative justice project she founded and sponsors called, Brown Sisters Speak.
