Black Touch: A Somatic Healing Space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Black people need the medicine of our bodies. In a society that demonizes and hypersexualizes black bodies touching, we create a container for liberatory physical dialogue to bring connection, unity, and transformation. Participants will explore somatic techniques rooted in compassion and shared presence, releasing tension and recalling our innate worth and value as beings. Together we share the wisdom of our bodies to organize and heal, to affirm that we are not alone.
