Somatics, Trauma Healing and Social Change
Staci K. Haines, the founder of “Generative Somatics,” has integrated her extensive experience in both transforming individual and social trauma and in grassroots movements into uniquely powerful work that has proven to be incredibly helpful to a wide range of social justice activists, many of whom have been deeply hurt by oppression or violence. Today a panel of leaders from a range of cutting-edge groups, including Prentis Hemphill of Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity (BOLD), Raquel Lavina from the National Domestic Workers Alliance, will share how they have been able to successfully integrate embodied transformation into their social change work.
