Limited Capacity filling up

The training presents a nuanced approach to issues of identity, intersectionality, and privilege using an embodied, relational practice of narrative and somatic movement.
This workshop supports communities to build interdependent, empathic and inclusive group culture. We dive together into unveiling the forces that create separation from our own emotions, from the environment, and between communities and cultures, leading to systems of oppression and the climate collapse we face today. These are the same forces that generate undermining attitudes and habits of competition, isolation and suspicion that can derail organizing efforts, break apart relationships, and fracture communities, organizations and movements. 

We use relational practices of Bonding (deepening into relationships and mutual understanding) and Bridging (building mutual support and distributed resources across diverse communities) to intentionally reclaim our interdependence, engaging in supportive, radically inclusive ways, without shying away from the challenges of diversity, power, and trauma. The training presents a nuanced approach to issues of identity, intersectionality, and privilege using an embodied, relational practice of narrative and somatic movement.
