Nurturing the Heart with the Brain in Mind presents Embodied Liberation: A Racial Justice Workshop

Embodied Liberation: A Racial Justice Workshop

Statement of need: Embodied Liberation is an interactive anti-racism workshop for therapists, advocates, healers, and helpers. We will explore systemic racial bias, through the lens of interpersonal neurobiology. We will look at the role our collective and individual history played in the wounding and trauma we carry about race and explore opportunities for the healing of our world and each other.

Presented by: Vanessa Timmons and Mari Alexander, offered through Nurturing the Heart with the Brain in Mind
