Ignite: somatic resources for these days of fire
June 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
As a feminist, woman of color, and college teacher, I ask myself how can I relate, together with my students, with the image of George Floyd, which is at the same time everything beyond an image. How can we relate in all of our spaces to the vibrations in the streets during these days of fire? Many of my students are protesting, others remain at home in solidarity, supporting the struggle in whatever ways they know how. I myself, for many reasons, have not been out at the demos. But I stand in solidarity and know that what I’m here to offer are resources for keeping ourselves resilient in a long struggle, that did not begin last week, and that will not end anytime soon. Throughout the time of the quarantine I’ve been offering a somatic workshop for resourcing ourselves in these times. For the next two weeks, I’ll begin a new offering, called “Ignite” to participate in our times with somatic, trauma-informed, and politically attuned resources. If you’ve been out in the demonstrations and need to find some ground, please come. If you’ve stayed out of the streets but want to participate in collective consciousness, come. If you are frozen in fear because your body is by virtue of race a target of the state, come. If you want to undo yourself in the midst of this moment, come. Email me to subscribe for the link.
2 weeks, June 7 and June 14, 11 am-1 pm PST on zoom.
