What is deep justice? How does focusing on our own healing support this collective quest? This is a workshop for anyone interested in supporting their wellness through a healing justice lens. We will take time to settle our sympathetic nervous systems through embodiment practices so we can support the health inherent in our bodies. Healing justice includes accountability; we will deepen our understanding of our bodies’ role in the web of interdependence and consequence.
The U.S. has been built on systems that have upended the natural order in favor of extractive, non-regenerative systems. Obscene wealth inequality, mass incarceration, mass shootings, and other ills have been the result of a system founded and sustained on patriarchy, private property, capitalism, genocide, occupation, slavery, and white supremacy. Nonprofits are not above the struggle to provide alternatives to these systems of objectification, violation, and commodification. Addressing their complicity in harmful systems is critical work for nonprofits as participants and potential leaders in developing systems that heal. By practicing in our bodies, we can strengthen our resolve to act more justly for all living systems.
This workshop is for you if you are open to taking the time and space to reflect, discuss, and work to strengthen our capacity for joy, passion, resilience, choice, mobilization, and repair within the context of our organizational work.
