Healing Oppression Through Reconnection of the Self (body, mind, emotion, spirit, and community)
February 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This event is hosted by BCCIC’s SOVI Chapter.
The events of 2020 have opened the gates for some deep inquiries into what we have created as a collective but also what we truly want in our personal lives. So much of the pain, suffering, lack of awareness and indifference that has existed in our world for so long has become visible and will continue to be unveiled as 2021 unfolds.
- Are we ready to face our own healing in ways that will serve us all?
- Do we have the skills and tools to navigate the abundance of overwhelm and apathy that still exist in our world?
- Do we wish it could all go back to normal?
- What does normal actually mean?
- Do we want to create new ways of living with ourselves and each other?
- What is the vision you want to see in the world?
- Do you have a vision/mission or is it being blocked by all the pain?
- Do you want to learn, grow and embrace your wholeness?
If you’d like to dive deep into the blocks that are keeping you from creating an efficient, effective and sustainable impact in this rapidly changing world, no matter where you are on your path, please join us. We would love to invite you to participate in this collective journey of the senses, using a holistic trauma informed somatic lens we will navigate our awareness through body, mind, emotion, spirit and community.
About the Facilitator
Nathali comes from a lineage of healers, artists, and medicine weavers jumpstarting her path of inner growth from a very young age. Having immigrated to Canada at the age of three, she deeply understands the impacts of colonization and the complexities of intergenerational trauma. Understanding mental illness and addictions from a personal and collective perspective, allows her to understand the interconnectedness of all our histories in the context of today’s modern and imperialized world. She believes we have all become disconnected from self through oppression of ourselves and each other in ways that affect our everyday relationships and quality of life. Her mission is to create safe spaces to remember, release and become who we truly are in order to make an impact for the future of our children.
She currently practices as a registered massage therapist and a de-colonial facilitator and guide. Her years of experience with massage and healing has allowed her to translate her wisdom and skills by teaching communities how to transform isolation, exhaustion, burnout, anger, fear and shame into embodied awareness, fully self expressed, grounded and empowered actions while connecting to themselves, each other and the world around them.
