"What if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb, but the darkness of the womb? What if our America is not dead but a country that is waiting to be born?"- Valarie Kaur
At this pivotal moment how do we remain committed and engaged for the long road ahead? We may go through periods of grief, numbness, anger and exhaustion. How do we dance with all these emotions and come back to our wisest selves in antiracist work?
When we make space for our humanity we can show up fully for racial justice. We can’t afford to wring our hands or be stifled by guilt or feeling insignificant.
The tools of InterPlay help us tap into the wisdom of our bodies. Movement, story, stillness and connection are powerful tools for connecting us to what really matters.
With music and dance, we’ll move into more expansive holding, ease and connection. We’ll create a space to feel our feelings so that we can show up in our fullness to work for the liberation of all.
Workshop facilitators, Jennifer Denning and CC King are InterPlay leaders that have long been engaging the tools of InterPlay to awaken body wisdom in the work towards racial justice.
