Collective Care Circle for Everyone
Time & Location
About the Event
Welcome (<Adapted from M'kali-Hashiki>):
This is a gathering space for sacred community. The needs, desires, safety, dignity, and sacred humanity of QTPOC are the foundation of these sessions. This space acknowledges the critical need to center the experiences and wisdom of generations of people who have been historically marginalized by the state. Centering the historically marginalized fosters open participation and the experience of collective belonging we need for personal and collective liberation in these times. As such, this space does not cater to those harboring hierarchical values regarding human bodily worth as these manifest in -isms/phobia (including ableism, sexism, racism, ageism, queer-phobia, fatphobia).
Tools: Techniques we will explore include check-ins, rest, dance, coherent breathing, tapping, movement, self-massage, journaling, meditation, sound & song, and gentle/restorative yoga.
About the Facilitator: Tayo holds a PhD in Cultural Anthropology and is a graduate of Bella Prana’s 200 RYT. They have studied the role of embodied performance within activist collectives for over a decade. With knowledge garnered in this field coupled with a passion for social justice, they continue to identify novel ways by which to engage seekers towards personal and collective liberation. As a yoga teacher, researcher, and university professor, Tayo is committed to heeding the body's wisdom and inspiring others to do the same.
