Resilient Body

Recruit your body’s wisdom to help you show up better in the work towards diversity, equity and inclusion. Inequality and oppression are rooted in collective trauma. Trauma lives in our bodies as chronic states of fight, flight, and freeze. Through dance, movement, and somatic resourcing, discover how your body defends itself and expand your capacity to be in discomfort, a requirement for confronting oppressive structures within ourselves and healing towards more inclusion and belonging.
