Trauma leaves an imprint on the body. Some say that just being born into a black or brown body is a traumatic event. This workshop will explore what is racial trauma, how the mind and body responds to trauma, and resources for regulating the nervous system through the lens of the polygvagal theory. This takes a strength based approach to intergenerational trauma and the strategies people use to survive.
This is a zoom workshop. A zoom link will be send 30 minutes prior to the workshop.
