Somatics & Social Justice

From Trauma to Magic –
Individual and Collective Healing through Embodiment

Investigating the connections of our individual healing of trauma to the necessary work of healing collective trauma. We will start with resource building to bolster the field of health, and a brief overview of polyvagal theory.

Using guided meditation, somatic exercises, dyads and small group discussions, we’ll explore our bodies to understand our own heritage of intergenerational trauma through the lens of social power, privilege and oppression. In doing this uncomfortable work together, we move towards more inclusion, equality and harmony within ourselves and within our community.

Regulation and Resilience
Somatic Tools to Engage Beyond Your Comfort Zone

Dismantling white supremacy, ableism, patriarchy, and other modes of oppression that exist within ourselves is a whole-body process. While we unlearn problematic ways of thinking, we also need to unwind a nervous system that has come up in an environment rife with unequal power dynamics. In this workshop, we learn how our own individual nervous system has adapted, and use somatic tools to bring more regulation and resilience to our bodies, expanding our capacity to show up to important moments as social justice allies, accomplices and rainbow warriors.
