Centering: Pain, Grief, Ourselves

Sunday, June 04, 2023

3:00am - 5:00pm

Jun 04

Centering: Pain, grief, ourselves: A writing workshop exploring the somatics of pain and the stories layered within our bodies.

Presented by Sheila McMullin with support from Stacy Sims.

Virtual. Register here.

Description: Taking the why out of the equation, this workshop centers the how we relate to the chronic, physical, and mental pain we embody. Through accessing the grief, the pleasure, the delight, the playfulness, the worry, the social constructs experienced within the body through the playground of gentle somatic meditations and writing prompts, we also access new ways of understanding ourselves, our gifts, our inheritances, and our love. This space is intentionally created to make space for slowness to wonder and explore. While operating within the confines of timeframes, we value earthtime and non-linearity, meaning this is not a space to provide medical or results-driven advice, but to downshift into experiencing the current moment of the body how it is/as it is. Let this also be an invitation to show up as you are, to push no further than your capacity as we will send a follow up of writing prompts to the community after the conclusion of the workshop.
