Moving Towards Liberation through the Body: a workshop led by Ali Shockey
Wed, Feb 21, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

CLASS / WORKSHOP

Three Sessions: Wednesdays, 6:30-8:15 Feb 7, 14, 21

Please join us for the last of the three introductory sessions of “Moving Towards Liberation Through the Body”, facilitated by Ali Shockey. 
 
This session will include a gentle nervous-system regulation opening practice, written and movement-based exercises based in Nkem Ndefo’s Resilience Toolkit and Staci Haines’ Sites of Shaping model, and, if time allows, an introduction to Farzahna Kahn’s work with Healing Justice Ldn. Part of the session will also be devoted to envisioning together how this workshop can evolve into an ongoing regular meetup and incubation space to think and practice together at the intersection of somatic practice, personal awareness and collective change. Please come ready to learn and reflect, to (gently) move, to share ideas and questions, and maybe to dance …
 

Cost: $10-$15 suggested donation per class; no one turned away for lack of funds.
