I began studying politicized trauma healing with Generative Somatics in 2004 and became a teacher and strategy team member with gs in 2010. We teach courses on embodied leadership and trauma healing for social justice leaders throughout the country.
The mission of gs is to support social and climate justice movements in achieving their visions of a radically transformed society. We do this by bringing somatic transformation to movement leaders, organizations, and alliances. Our programs engage the body (emotions, sensations, physiology), in order to align our actions with values and vision, and heal from the impacts of trauma and oppression. We aim to advance loving and rigorous movements that possess the creativity, resilience, and liberatory power needed to transform society.
