Event description

Description

Join Body Politic for a workshop and panel discussion on trauma and healing. We'll begin with a trauma-informed movement class, led by a certified instructor from Exhale to Inhale. This workshop will be a chance to move and form connection with our bodies in a safe space where individual space is respected. This movement workshop is open to everyone, regardless of experience with yoga or fitness. Beginners are welcome!

After the workshop, we will break for a short intermission. We will be serving warming drinks and light snacks, and attendees will have the chance to mingle and chat with each other. After the snack break, we'll reconvene for a panel discussion on trauma and healing. We'll hear from experts in the psychiatric field, herbalists, writers, activists, and wellness practitioners. While much of the discussion will focus on sexual trauma and recovery, our panelists will be offering insight into healing practices that can be applied to a variety of experiences. We will also explore the connections between oppression and trauma, as well as the links between "wellness," movement, and healing.

This event will be centered around the voices and experiences of trauma experts and trauma survivors. We will be offering grounding rituals throughout the event to help create an atmosphere of safety and stability. All attendees will also receive access to a reading list on trauma + healing, compiled by the event organizers and panelists, so the work we do together can continue after and outside of the event.
