About the event
“To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone and everything is to succumb to violence. The frenzy of the activist neutralizes his or her work for peace.” Thomas Merton
We all feel it. The urgency, tension and tightness in our bodies as we move through an increasingly demanding, isolating, and unsafe world. Especially as folks invested in making the world a better and safer place for everyone, we too often succumb to the pressure to be and move in ways that are dangerous for our own wellbeing and our relationships.
If we are going to liberate ourselves and all of humanity, we have to be and do things differently. As Grace Lee Boggs says, “we have to become more human human beings.”
But how? We must (re)member ourselves, connecting with the deep wisdom and medicine that is within us all. Colonization, white supremacy culture, capitalism and all systems of oppression has us working against our own biology, disconnected from ourselves, each other, and the abundance, medicine, and gifts all around us.
The paradigm shifts we are all searching for and/or trying to make a reality begin with us, with our bodies. Each of us carries powerful medicine within, something Indigenous Peoples have always known. Once we are able to feel at home in our bodies, everything we dream for ourselves and our world becomes possible.
I invite you to join me. Take the necessary and often overlooked first step towards our collective liberation. Give yourself the medicine your body needs in order to access your own gifts and deep wisdom, to open your heart toward others, to become a more human human being.
Sign up today for Indigenous Ways of Settling the Body. In this one hour session, we will learn and practice settling our bodies. The first step to moving through the activated state our bodies are chronically in and to unite with our wholeness and innate capacity to love, care, and support ourselves and each other.
