Awakening Intersubjective Awareness – This is a session for unpacking the experience of a “somatic movement world/environment” that has long been predominantly dominated by white-bodied people. Join in on talking about benefits and disadvantages of racism for white people and its impact on those not perceived of as white. Explore a Dynamic Embodiment approach called – Personal Narrative of Living Inside Our Skin – A Moving Process. It includes recalling memories of how race impacts behavior and moving through these stories and sharing them. We tell experiences with our bodies and stay with the feelings that emerge. From a Dynamic Embodiment OSO (observe, support, options) perspective we will acknowledge these feelings, support their existence in the body, and play with what other movements/patterns want to happen – what desires do you have for dismantling the strictures of dominance. We will ask – how do these processes help us move into activism to change systemic oppression, or not?
