Over the past 12 years or so, I have been on a journey of embodiment. And I've finally come to the point that I am able to teach what I know and have learned in that journey. As a Black, trans, queer person, I understand the ways in which oppression and white supremacy land in our bodies, as well as whatever kinds of trauma we experience separate from that. I'm intrigued by the ways in which our nervous system works, both in times of stress and threat, as well as in times of safety and comfort. The integration of our minds and bodies is such a complex and amazing process - I'm always interested to learn more about that.
The embodiment modalities I work with include mindfulness and self-compassion tools from Buddhist teachings from my 30+ year-old Buddhist practice, Authentic Movement, which is an embodiment practice I've worked with for more than 10 years. I've also been studying and working with classic Tantra, as well as the framework and practices of the Wheel of Consent. I'm excited to bring these tools to marginalized folks, including queer, BIPOC, and trans and gender expansive folks.
