“Combining the powerfully creative tools of journaling and expressive arts, the Inner Field Trip is a must have book for anyone who wants to become a good ancestor. Carry it with you wherever you go.” — Layla F. Saad, New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of Me and White Supremacy
A powerful 30-day workbook journey intended to help the reader lovingly confront their inner oppressor and come to terms with their own internalized biases.
Based on mental wellness advocate and writer Leesa Renee Hall's longstanding work, Inner Field Trip provides a user-friendly, nonjudgmental, and introspective template for exploring our inner biases about race and other forms of inequity. The cornerstone of Hall's model involves confronting one's "Inner Oppressor."
The Inner Oppressor is a manifestation of internalized cultural messages that drive us to judge others but also works to sabotage our own needs. This 30-day program in workbook form takes readers—who become active participants in the experience—on a deep dive from which they will emerge changed.
