About the event part 1:
Bringing Justice Back to our Bodies
“When we live an embodied and integrated life, we can hold the essence of the Cosmos within us thus creating a life of love and connection to ourselves and with the world around us.”
We warmly invite you to join us as we create an inclusive community of practice for deepening our work ahead together. This event will be a closed, safe space, for People Of Colour to come together, heal, and be empowered. Together, through inquiry, talks and mindfulness practices, discussion, and sound energy healing and shamanism.
- We explore heart-level intention to humanize personal and collective trauma.
- We explore patterns around noticing, accepting, investigating and confronting bias and facing injustice - in our daily lives and the world.
- We examine how mindfulness supports all of us, inwardly and outwardly, to create a equitable world without compromising equanimity, compassion and our experience of common humanity.
- To raise awareness of trauma imprints and to lend context to experiences often pathologized rather than understood within a broader ecology of relationships and events.
- Somatic (body-first) approaches are central in our healing and reconnection.
Professor Cre Dye
Dr. Dye is an Associate Professor in the Department of Counseling and Student Affairs. As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a National Certified Counselor, Dr. Dye has served her local, regional and national community with heart, mind and body wellness for over 20 years. She is trained and certified in a variety of interventions that focus on the integration of counseling, neuroscience and trauma informed body based healing processes. She regularly gives workshops with parents, teachers, students and community professionals in the areas of ancestral healing, shamanic healing, yoga & drumming therapy, trauma releasing activities in counseling, urban school counseling and unconscious bias. She has published and presented at national and international conferences on these topics. You can see and hear Dr. Dye each week day at 9am CST via facebook for her “Morning Breath”, a daily motivational wellness session started to help people deal with life in a pandemic.
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.
