    June 27 • Community & Activism • Amélie Gaulier

    In partnership with Here4theKids a workshop for anyone interested in deepening their relationship to community and activism. 

    Through an interactive conversation woven from somatic-body-mind practices, participants will explore the possibility of drawing on their lived experience and imagination to share stories, questions, visions and desires about their role in social healing and transformation. At a time when multiple genocides and ecocides are tearing at the heart of our humanity, we'll focus on exploring ways to reimagine and nurture forms of activism we want to embody within our communities. Recognizing how patterns of colonialism, racism (and all the ism) and white supremacy manifest in our society, interpersonal relationships and living bodies, we'll gather some of our personal stories about our ancestry and conditioning shaped by current systems of oppression.

    We'll put the following questions into practice:
    How can we have courageous conversations with ourselves and each other about what really matters to us?
    What does it take to become more accountable for our choices ?
    How can we create the conditions for social transformation rooted in our collective awareness of what we need to divest from and what we need to nurture with fierce love? 
    How can we play our roles and responsibilities with sustained intentionality, creativity and resilience?  How can we support transformation, nurture our sense of belonging and create an acceleration of collective liberation?

    Heart Centering and grounding
