    WORKSHOP – What is my role to play in social transformation?

    What is my role to play in social transformation?  A workshop for anyone interested in deepening their relationship to community and activism. Somatic and embodiment practices will help us tune into our bodies to collect, think and feel what we are longing for. We’ll be invited to identify our roles in the world, and what we care about, grounded in our whole presence, in finding joy and play. Playful activities from mindful movement, journaling, collective reflection and social transformation mapping will support participants to birth joyful acts of militancy into our lives and environments.

    Among many resources, this workshop is inspired by "Joyful Militancy: Building Thriving Resistance in Toxic Time" – a book by carla bergman and Nick Montgomery – and inspired by the social change ecosystem map by Deepa Iyers.

    Amélie and Mylaèle have in common growing up in the parisian suburbs, France and both are transplants from there to the United States, Turtle Island where they live, work, and imagine ways to co-create and inspire others to engage in social change to break away from the colonial-imperial project.
