This is where I come from. The memory is in my body, in my subconscious mind. And when I come back here, old habits, beliefs, perspectives resurface. I am starting to try to engage with my past and my ancestral memory with curiosity. What is buried in me because of things that happened in generations past? What harm have my white ancestors done that I need to heal from? Oppression requires a healing and recovery journey for the oppressor just as much as for the oppressed.
