The #MeToo movement and current political climate have brought issues of power, domination, and the body to the surface of our collective awareness. The prevalence of interpersonal and systemic violence toward women, people of color, and other vulnerable populations is out in the open. How can yoga, mindfulness, and body-based contemplative practices help? In this daylong workshop, we explore the science of trauma, including the oscillation between panic and dissociation. We expand the rigid social binary that makes us either “broken” or “whole,” the ways in which the bodily archive of trauma can re-emerge at periodic intervals, and practices that help us during such times. We consider what it means to be a teacher, healer, or helping professional who has also suffered sexualabuse, assault, or harassment, and how the emerging field of post-traumatic growth can offer us inspiration. What helps us refine our voice and develop our inner power and use our voice for ourselves and others? Practices will include mindful movement, connective tissue work, dynamic rest, and supine, walking, and seated meditation.
