Are you ready to step away from grief, trauma, and stress and take a restorative journey toward joy, healing, and connection? Join us for the ‘Moving Towards Joy’ workshop, a powerful two-hour experience that combines movement, introspection, and journaling to guide you toward a more joyful and peaceful self. No prior dance experience is needed. Come as you are, and let's move towards joy together.
Connect with Your Body: Explore the connection between stress, trauma, and the body. Identify physical areas where tension is held and gain insight into your emotional landscape through journaling.
Embrace Joyful Movements: Discover the healing power of movement with guided exercises inspired by Resma Menakem's primal body movements. Create and share movement phrases that evoke joy, releasing trapped emotions.
Journal for Healing: Use the provided journal to process your journey towards a more joyful and peaceful place. Document your insights, reflections, and newfound clarity.
Participants will learn the tools and insights needed to:
Reconnect with their physical and mental selves and understand how trauma and grief can manifest within the body
Learn empowering movements and practices to support healing and a more joyous life
Utilize journaling as a means to process and journey towards a happier, more peaceful place.
