In this workshop we will be sharing a yogic, somatic, and socio- political framework of personal, interpersonal, and systemic trauma and how this manifests in individuals and their communities. In addition to exploring tools from the growing field of trauma research, yoga, and mindfulness, we will be investigating the link between personal trauma and institutionalized and normalized systems of oppression. Along with addressing individuals, this training will also explore how systemic patterns of trauma, marginalization, and oppression (at the heart of social justice issues such as poverty, racism, ableism, homophobia, etc.) impact entire communities of people.
Our goal is to equip anyone working in communities impacted by trauma with a perspective that acknowledges the history and context of the individuals and communities they are working with. We will share some tools from trauma research and yogic wisdom. We feel that seeing individuals in the context that they come from can help prevent “victim blaming” and can pave the way towards transformative practices that address the root cause of trauma rather than its manifestations.
