Rooted For This World 2020
Type of event: Webinar
Sponsor: Central East Region of the UUA
CER Online Engagement Studio presents:
Rooted for this World: Building Safety in the Body with Rev. Megan Visser
Paying attention to our bodies can help us to nurture the resilience we need in these challenging and troubled times. Megan draws on her experience as a UU minister, and training in embodied somatic healing work.
In this online engagement studio, Megan will be sharing body-based practices that invite our bodies into the conversation about how we're coping in this present moment. These practices are grounded in social justice principles and scientific responses to trauma and oppression. She'll offer you opportunities to "try on" these practices in your home - while still being connected online. Come explore some techniques for building safety within your body and in an approachable environment.
If you have been feeling worried, anxious or numbed out, come explore some techniques to soothe or bolster you. If you would like to feel more fully present as you move through your day, come and grow in awareness of the ways your body has been showing up throughout the past few weeks.
Rev. Visser's hope is that you will leave this studio feeling more connected to the resilience and presence you need to get through this season. Come join us April 18th to gather some tools for nurturing your spirit as we move through these times together as a community.
Who is this studio for?
There is no wrong body to practice with. Families and youth, people with movement or space limitations and people with chronic health conditions welcome! Whether you are a leader or not, welcome! Full participation requires no special skills, training or any particular way of being personally spiritual.
Have questions? This FAQ on Megan Visser's website should answer many of them.
Time: 10 am to 12:30 pm
Cost: Sliding Scale fee of $10-$15-$20-$25. We ask that those who will be attending alone pay in the $10-15 range and those who will have multiple people in the household attending pay in the $20-25 range. Registration fees are on a sliding scale, based on your assessment of your ability to pay. Waviers are available for those who are unable to pay at all right now. Those who pay at the highest level are making a donation to help those in financial need for this event. Please remember that for a sliding scale to work, we need the same number of people with means to generously pay more to balance the needs of those who can afford less.
If you are unable to attend, but want to access this program, please register so we can send you a recording. You will not have the opportunity to participate in a practice group, but will get the full presentation including body practices.
Registration closes Friday, April 17 at 10 am. Youth are welcome to join us for this event and we are planning to have a separate youth only breakout session. To allow us to make this happen, youth will need to login on a separate device than other household members.
