The Red Moon Mystery School places deep value on the inclusion of all people including black people, indigenous people and people of colour (BIPOC) in our programs and online community.
To this, I Nikiah Seeds would add that as the sole proprietor of the school I take full responsibility for my continued growth and the need to make lasting change. I am committed to working with women (including transgender and non-binary women) of all ethnicity and races, and will always work to make sure that my courses and online spaces are safe for all who come here. As a result updates and resources will be continual and freely shared. It is my goal to actively work against discrimination in all forms and especially with regards to racism.
I believe that as a spiritual being, to stay silent is to cause harm and the intersection of spirituality and activism need to meet if we are to walk our talk. Anything else is a bypass. As a result I will continue to acknowledge that all I have created here was built on white privilege, and I will keep educating myself about what racism means and how it impacts BIPOC people. It is part of my continual work to dismantle my beliefs through life long learning, listening and action. To this end I will also continue to invest financially in the expertise of BIPOC experts so that I can learn and unlearn.
Here at the Mystery School:
Our commitment to inclusiveness and anti-racism has become a part of our programs, guiding policies, and ongoing education that will be shared as a resource to other privileged white people who are interested in how to change their own behaviour and beliefs.
We will ensure our use of language, images and ideas do not appropriate BIPOC culture or cause harm to black, indigenous, people of colour. We will continue to pay for the services of experts in this field to increase our knowledge and awareness, and to invest economically in the skills of BIPOC.
We commit to including BIPOC speakers, leaders and teachers at our gatherings with deep respect and recognition that there is a huge amount of wisdom that has been overlooked from the whitewashed perspective. I am committed to decentering whiteness as the dominant narrative and paradigm of our age.
I will only participate in events, summits and programs that have BIPOC represented in a genuine (and non-tokenistic) way.
We are working on, and will continue to work on, dismantling white supremacy by acknowledging our white privilege, unpacking our privilege, meeting our subconscious fear programs fearlessly, and being consistent in our commitment to this path for we recognize that our work as spiritual people is not done until all are all free to be as we are.
We will not engage in a self-centric spirituality to bypass or silence other people’s experiences.
I will listen without being defensive, not take things personally, and even when it is hard and inconvenient will do the work of dismantling the dominant overculture. This is a life long commitment.
I will stand up for BIPOC where I witness harm and not stay silent.
My promise is to continue to do this work because I acknowledge that I possess a freedom, spirituality, emotionally, politically, economically, culturally and socially that many do not have and I will not squander that privilege.
Our Socio-Economic Access Policy
We believe that all women (trans and cis), including non-binary and gender non-conforming people and all those who identify as women. Self-definition is at the discretion of the individual. The Institute is striving for excellence and best practice in its program delivery and proudly supports and welcomes the inclusion of members of the Trans and Gender Diverse communities around the world. Our focus is and always will be on contributing to the ongoing rise of the divine feminine and the second great mystical renaissance that human consciousness is now experiencing. We respect that the divine feminine is not limited to women but we believe that women (trans and cis included) hold a special capacity to receive and transmit the divine feminine, and so the Institute makes the choice to focus on training women as a priority. We also commit to training women and to develop the spiritual self-esteem of women as a core mission because the last 8,000 years of patriarchy have created an imbalance between men and women in regards to political, economic, personal and spiritual rights. The Institute is determined to be part of the return to balance for all, and we begin by working with women (trans and cis included) as what we believe is an effective strategy to redress this balance).
