Body-Informed Leadership for Sacred Activism
At this time of global transformation, as sacred activists invoke the spirit of interconnection in our hearts and our actions, we are called to find right relationship with the whole spectrum of our human experience. We know that both the fullness of our gifts and our suffering are necessary to truly change the status quo. And yet, it can be challenging to invite this fullness into our group cultures. Without a shared language and skill-set to understand and safely hold our wounding, grief, and trauma, these forces can wreak havoc in our groups, damaging relationships and undoing the very interconnection we seek.
This 3-part workshop series takes participants on an experiential journey through the latest insights from neuroscience and embodied psychology. In each workshop, participants learn a set of tools to understand and skillfully navigate the body-informed dimension of their own inner life, and of the groups they are a part of. A significant portion of each workshop is devoted to embodied group practice to thoroughly integrate these tools, while regular opportunities for verbal sharing and group discussion support each group to weave a new story of what “wellness” looks and feels like – individually and culturally – in these turbulent times.
This workshop series is accessible to anybody with a keen interest, and with a willingness to connect with their body-based non-verbal experience using movement and sound. It is especially valuable for those who are devoted to world-changing work, who seek a new way of understanding and experiencing themselves that offers scope and support for the full – and sometimes challenging – nature of being “well” at this historical moment. Those who facilitate or hold space themselves will also find new ways to attend to the interconnective field of their groups.
*Workshops can be attended individually, or as a series.
