January Somatic Practice Circles
These weekly somatic practice circles look at rewiring our brain through movement practices, connecting to plant wisdom, and uncovering ancestral and animist ways of resourcing which are always present within our individual, collective, and historical bodies. These circles are an emergent process of inquiry into our personal and collective ways of being in the world in an effort to decolonise our pan-activist culture-building praxis.
ginhawa is a Bisaya word that points us to the breath of life and reminds us of our aliveness, even in the worst of times. How we breathe is an indication of our physical, emotional, cognitive, social, spiritual, and collective health. By engaging with an integrated self, we are building and enlivening our embodied knowledge to identify creative solutions to our problems, see the world differently, and meet our decolonised selves.
The facilitator is an absolute treasure. I love working with them and have learnt so much. Feels so safe and cozy, but at the same time I'm really challenged to learn and grow in such powerfully expansive ways. I look forward to all the healing and spiritual growth still to come. I've recommended them to so many of my queer and BIPOC friends, and will continue to do so.
Program Participant, May 2022
Argo (They/Them) is a passionate advocate who weaves together the intersections between Identity and Social Justice, and has a deep curiosity for the emerging fields of Neuroscience & Embodiment. What drives their work is an appreciation that at the core of this, it all comes down to honouring relationship.
Their lineage is Greek and Visayan (Filipino), and presently they mostly find themselves climbing rocks, talking to plants, and dreaming up ways to hold space for our collective liberation.
We will be learning to:
dwell in place
integrate the natural cycles of the season
regulate our nervous system
embody ecosystemic perspectives
utilise ancestral medicine
practice kapwa kinship with human n non-human beings
