Bringing Justice Back to our Bodies
Time & Location
About The Event
The primary purpose for the session is to bring back justice to our bodies through introducing (and reminding) them of specific technique/practices that will enhance their personal self-care, well-being and what and where healing is needed while living in a pandemic as a person of colour. The insidious effects of constantly elevated stress hormones, acute, chronic and psychological stress, especially during this time, can contribute to memory and attention problems, irritability, weight gain and sleep disorders. In this workshop, participants will explore the use of personal reflection of the breath, the brain and the beat (heart) as tools to heal self, reconcile emotions and build their self-care capital. In this process, participants will re-establish trust in and with their bodies.
