Heal the Body, Heal the World

Do you feel an endless weight on your shoulders or in the pit of your stomach? Does going “back” into the world on this side of the pandemic leave you feeling unsettled or constantly clenching your jaw? 

Somatic healing focuses on the role our nervous system has on our physical, mental, and spiritual health. This workshop will gather together a small group of faith and community leaders whose body yearn to regularly feel the sensations of relaxation, expansiveness, and connection within oneself and with others. 

“Changing the world begins with your body.” – Resmaa Menakem, My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathways to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies. 

Whether you are a faith leader, community activist, justice seeker, peacemaker, or someone who often feels anxious, unsettled, or even enraged by the state of our world – all who wish to heal from within so that the work of collective wholeness may be possible are invited to join.

Dates: ONLINE, Wednesdays, June 8, 15, 22, and 29, 11:00 am - Noon, Central Time
Cost: $35 per person
