Psychobiology of Systemic Oppression
We explore the shape of systematic oppressive behavior and beliefs through a psychobiology lens primarily using Dr. Leticia Nieto’s developmental model Beyond Inclusion, Beyond Empowerment: A Developmental Strategy to Liberate Everyone and Dr. Stephen Porges' Polyvagal theory. The workshop is taught through lecture, improv exercises, experiential guided movement exercises, small group and dyad interaction, imagery, and skill building. We use play to deepen awareness of empowerment, accountability, and liberation for all peoples.
This workshop has been offered nationally to organizations and businesses and is applicable for anyone.
Metamorphosis of White Supremacy: Visibilizing and Unpracticing Supremacy Culture
During eight sessions we explore the many facets of supremacy beliefs, behaviors, and culture; such as ableism, colonialism, nationalism, whiteness + racism, classism, Christendom, heteronormativity, and more. This group is open to everyone.
We reconnect to our own bodies, other living beings and our eco-systems by utilizing creativity, play, and art. This group helps us reconnect to our biological right to live interdependently, equitably, and justly. We can be responsible and responsive, available to learn and be relational, culturally humble and joyful, love-centered, and listening-oriented.
We primarily use Dr. Leticia Nieto’s developmental work Beyond Inclusion, Beyond Empowerment: A Developmental Strategy to Liberate Everyone and Dr. Stephen Porges' Polyvagal theory interpreted through Bonnie Badenoch and Deb Dana.
