This Black-focused healing session will use the medium of movement to attend to and release generational wounds that have taken space in our bodies.

This workshop will presented in two parts and provide different approaches to healing movement. You will be invited to explore in whatever way feels a safe and accessible to you.
Session One: Led by contemporary dancer, spoken word artist and CEO Lindsey T.H. Jackson, this session will ask us to confront these often unnamed and secret traumas that live rent-free in our bodies and hold us back from experiencing somatic liberation and joy, which is our birthright.
Session Two: Healing artist, Sadiqua Iman will lead a movement mediation that will ground participants in their own peace and release various tensions locked in the body due to grief. This is a healing dance that needs no previous experience of skill set, simply the willingness to say yes to the process.
