About the Event

It’s a lot harder to navigate the ups and downs of relating to each other in everyday life and especially in sex positive community and sexy situations when our inherited wounds are “running the show.”

This workshop is centered around trauma-informed practices that equip us with the skills necessary to address embodiment of traumatic experiences. Nishita Rao will shine a light upon the inheritable nature of trauma experienced by our previous generations with respect to patriarchy, colonization, white supremacy, poverty, religion or spirituality, legal, medical and political systems. She will also speak to the nested nature of trauma and the resultant attachment styles we each develop.

The workshop will help each of us assess the embodied traumas we carry within ourselves and provide rituals rooted in movement, music and meditation to help cleanse the deep wounds we are all living with so we can approach our interactions with each other from a more grounded and healed place.

Nishita will offer knowledge from several ancient cultures such as Japanese,  Tibetan, Ancient Indian, Egyptian, Moroccan, Nordic and Celtic, to provide the tools for a transcendental healing experience.

This workshop aims at creating an authentic experience for individuals regardless of their race,  sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, socio-economic status,  ancestry, medical condition, genetic information, religion, faith or spirituality.

Celebrating the visible and the invisible, uniqueness, experiences and diverse perspectives, this  workshop teaches a Cleanse, Accept and Rejuvenate process through embodied learning and courageous engagements.

Learning Objectives:

● To understand brain architecture and build a sturdy brain that can withstand life’s stressors. 

● To describe the bodily manifestations of trauma and stress, and stay aware of its  generational inheritance

● To illustrate and reverse the development of unhealthy attachment styles

● To recognize embodied trauma and address it  with a cleansing, acceptance and a rejuvenation ritual.
