In this workshop, Hala Khouri will be sharing a somatic and socio-political framework of personal, interpersonal and systemic trauma and how this manifests in individuals and their communities. In addition to exploring tools from the growing field of trauma research, yoga, and mindfulness, we will be investigating the link between personal trauma and institutionalized and normalized systems of oppression. Along with addressing individuals, this workshop will explore how systemic patterns of trauma, marginalization and oppression, at the heart of social justice issues such as poverty, racism, ableism, homophobia, etc., impact entire communities of people.
Online registration is open. In the event the workshop is canceled, participants will be notified by Wednesday, the week of the workshop. Registration fees are refunded only if the workshop is canceled; no refund for partial attendance or no-show.
