Empowering Womxn of Color Conference – Transformative Healing Workshop
TRANSFORMATIVE HEALING: AN INTRODUCTION TO TENSION & TRAUMA RELEASE EXERCISES (TRE®)
Nkem Ndefo (she/her/hers), TRE Los Angeles and Tiffany Hsiang (she/her/hers), PATH to Care Center
Transformative healing is liberatory, grounded and connected. In this interactive session, we will examine a holistic trauma framework highlighting the interplay between structural oppression and inter- and intra-personal dynamics as they affect WOC. We will explore Tension/Trauma Release Exercises, which guides us into intimate connection with our bodies. By activating our intrinsic trauma resolution mechanism, we will re-inhabit an experience of internal safety. Small group discussion will deepen linkages between experiential and theoretical, helping us reclaim our bodies to more effectively engage in transformative social justice change.
This workshop is hosted by UC Berkeley’s PATH to Care Center, which provides affirming, empowering and confidential support for individuals and communities impacted by sexual violence and harassment.
