EMBODIED PLAY, CARE, & MEDITATION:
RECLAIMING INTERGENERATIONAL JOY & RESILIENCE

*It is said that trauma as well as resilience are passed down intergenerationally. There can sometimes be an emphasis on the negative qualities we inherit as opposed to all the supportive qualities we also inherit. What does it look and feel like to center reclaiming intergenerational joy and resilience alongside healing intergenerational trauma to benefit those who have already come and those who are still to come in our lineages? 

*Practices of liberation exploring the intersects of care, dharma, joy, and justice. Offered in a trauma-responsive way where folks are encouraged to take care of their bodies and needs throughout the practice.

*In this embodied practice, we will utilize Pleasure Activism by adrienne maree brown, My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem, and Buddhist principles and teachings as some of our guides.

Where: Online via zoom. Closed captioning available. Register via punchpass

Cost: Pay what you can

When: Monthly on the third Thursdays from 7-8 pm EST next on April 15th and May 20th

Who: Folks are encouraged to have engaged in learning around social and racial justice as well as intersectionality prior to joining these sessions to support a readiness for exploration around the topic of intergenerational resilience/trauma which includes the impact of race- and oppression-based trauma.
