Resilience In The Resistance : Washington D.C. Workshop, 10/11/17

After the  Las Vegas mass shooting – it’s days like this when the world feels like it is falling apart that we tap into our resilience and inner strength to feel, mourn and transform even through the pain. For peacebuilders, activists and those working on the front lines of social justice and peace – almost every day can feel like this as we are putting our own bodies on the line for the change they hope to see.

Experiencing burn out and disconnection becomes normal as it all takes its toll. This can disconnect us from our own stories and each other. This experiential and participatory workshop will build community and activate resilience. The workshop

  • Connect to yourself and community through story and movement.
  • Engage in courageous analysis and story of violence, oppression, power, and privilege
  • Experience and practice embodied peacebuilding, trauma healing and somatic awareness.

Through embodied somatic exercises, story and experiential participation you will gain skills in self care, non violence and building community so together we can show up looking like hope in a discouraging and hateful time.
