Embodying Radical Presence: Awareness of Race, Culture, and Self in Healing Trauma Day
Day Retreat with Leslie Booker
August 02, 2018 09:30 AM - August 02, 2018 04:30 PM
How can we bring the humanity back to people who have historically been marginalized? How do we see their humanity before we see the color of their skin, their disability, or their crime?
Healing the trauma of vulnerable communities requires us as practitioners to be aware of power dynamics and our implicit biases in order to create a culturally responsive space. This dismantling of power structures is itself an act of love, and from there, we can move beyond mere intention into real impact.
In this day retreat for clinicians, mindfulness practitioners, and yoga teachers, we will discover how to serve from a place of greater awareness and explore authenticity through compassion, embodied practices, and somatic experiencing techniques. Highlights of the day include:
· Exploring how our identities and learned biases relate to privilege and power in the practitioner-client relationship
· Basic Somatic Experiencing® techniques including resourcing and holding
· Learning how to be grounded in our own bodies in order to co-regulate
· Vulnerability and authenticity: learning how to stand up where we have fallen down
Tuition is $125.
