Join us as we welcome Isy Abraham-Raveson (she/they) for Reconnecting with Our Bodies after a Pandemic on Tuesday, October 19th at 7:00 PM EST over Zoom!
This workshop will be recorded and will be made available for a limited time to everyone who registers.
As many of us venture back out into the world after a lot of isolation, many feelings are likely to come up. Although we were all born with a deep sense of connection to our bodies, our culture of body disconnection teaches each of us in different ways to see our bodies as separate from our selves. For many of us, the pandemic has been a particularly difficult time to have a body and may have exacerbated our struggles with body disconnection.
In this workshop, we will reflect on the ways we became disconnected from our bodies in the first place and how the pandemic has affected that process. We will learn some history of the sources of body disconnection in U.S. culture and practice some strategies for reconnecting with ourselves. We all deserve to heal our relationships with our bodies - let’s do it together!
By the end of this workshop participants will be able to (1) identify and analyze at least two sources of their own sense of body disconnection and (2) apply at least one strategy of reconnecting with their body.
