Embodied Liberation - NYC

Embodied Liberation: An exploration in vibration, stillness, and safety.

We spend so many hours in the struggle outside, that we neglect ourselves and eventually burnout. To continue to do the work of seeking external liberation, we also MUST find embodied liberation, a place within where we can be still and feel safe.

Join Nkem Ndefo, founder of TRE Los Angeles, for this interactive workshop that will introduce you to The Resilience Toolkit, a suite of mindfulness and movement skills that are designed to facilitate an experience of internal stillness, rest, and renewal. Through a series of gentle movements, you will activate an organic vibration in the body (the therapeutic tremor), and learn how to cultivate an internal sense of safety.

Reclaiming our bodies in this way reconnects us to our communities, environment, and purpose, allowing for the possibility of sustainable transformative change both inside and out.
