Please join for practice and community in Embodied Play, Care, & Meditation: Reclaiming Intergenerational Joy and Resilience.
*It is said that trauma as well as resilience are passed down intergenerationally. There can sometimes be an emphasis on the negative qualities we inherit as opposed to all the supportive qualities we also inherit. What does it look and feel like to center reclaiming intergenerational joy and resilience alongside healing intergenerational trauma to benefit those who have already come and those who are still to come in our lineages?
*Exploring embodied practices as forms of care. Space will be offered for all the feelings present (grief, rage, exhaustion, joy, calm, etc), to hold space for each other, resource, and release.
*In this embodied practice, we will utilize Pleasure Activism by adrienne maree brown, My Grandmother's Hands by Resmaa Menakem, and Buddhist principles and teachings as some of our guides.
*Offered in a trauma-responsive way where folks are encouraged to take care of their bodies and their needs throughout the practice
