These weekly somatic practice circles with Nawa 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; whole, integrated. 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.
You 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
