I first found out about Vanissar when a friend gave me a wonderful article about her course created in 2000, called Compassionate Transformation: a Buddhist Way to Unlearn Racism. What a wonderful suggestion for me as a white South African!
It turns out that Vanissar does far more than run courses on unlearning racism. She is a deeply skilled somatic (body-based) coach and has helped me to go deep into the wisdom of the body while continuing to tackle issues of prejudice and working towards greater social justice. And her deep Buddhist roots provide a calm mindful space where learning can flourish.
While Vanissar is based on the west coast of the USA, she has proven in her work with me that virtual (Skype or Zoom) sessions do work powerfully, enabling transglobal work in an environmentally sustainable way.
