Moderated by Ni’Ja Whitson, with panelists: Cheryl Clark, Martha Eddy, Kayvon Pourazar, and Sangeeta Vallabhan.

This Studies Project: Social Wounds in the BodyMind: Somatic & Trauma-Informed practices for Collective Healing explores how social injustices impacts people’s lives and communities; who has access to healing and somatic practices; how are we as somatics practitioners working with offering trauma-informed approaches to our communities.
Social Wounds in the BodyMind: Somatic & Trauma-Informed practices for Collective Healing brings together artists and practitioners whose individual somatic and trauma-informed practices were generated from their personal journeys, commitment to healing themselves, and process of sharing their research to hold space for others. Through this conversation we will attempt to address how to generate more inclusive, collective and fully accessible healing spaces.
