I did a 50 hours training in Embodied Social Justice. The Certificate Program is a online program that explores how we embody unjust social conditions, how oppression affects our relationship with our body, and how we can harness the body’s wisdom in making our social justice work more grounded, responsive, and sustainable. The program brings together seasoned practitioners, elders, and community change agents to share strategies and offer tools in the collective work of transforming our bodies and our world. It thaught me a lot about trauma, our nervoussytem and specific knowledge about problems in the existing structures and finding new ways on how to move in this stormy water.

So if processes couldn't be held by the facilitators I was there to support individual beings. I was there for an open ear, grounding embodiment practices, cuddles, assistant in excercises.
All my practices have the aim to expand compassion, community work and increasing radical-self love. I believe that we need to remember ourselves in order to see ourselves as part of nature again. Its not about going somewhere, its about returning home. Only if we understand that we are not seperate from one and another we have more compassion for all living beings and have the power to transform the reality. I believe transformational change can happen if we act from a place of nourishment, relaxation and love. My focus due to my own embodied experience is especially on anti-racism, queering the body and sexuality as a tool of expansion and connection. I believe we are part of a collective trauma (especially ruled through capitalism) and carry inter-generational traumas and experiences. I thank my anchestors and I'm currently also learning more about Traditional Chinese Medicine and Thai Massage. I try to move and transform what I inhabit in my body through generations.
