Don’t miss out on The Wellness Hub at Creating Change
Let us share with you how The Wellness Hub (TWH) made its way to Creating Change and welcome you to Philadelphia. TWH is a space dedicated to being here for you!
A few years ago, staff members of the Leadership Academy at the National LGBTQ Task Force asked a vital question to their leadership academy members: does trauma affect and influence their daily lives and/or their activism? An overwhelming number of 1,200+ people responded YES! So in 2014, and breathe.,llc began training on embodied leadership in the academy sessions, and then in 2015 and 2016, applied their skills in the full day institutes. Embodied Leadership supports people in learning the hard science regarding the impact of trauma experienced by oppression on the individual, group, and community level. The workshops and institutes were overflowing with standing room numbers. The bottom line, people were ready to hear about the impact of activism and oppression on the body, the mind, the heart, the emotional body. Importantly, people wanted to learn ways to cultivate and practice “showing up for themselves”.
At the 2017 Creating Change Conference, the National LGBTQ Task Force has made a commitment to you to have a space where you can practice taking a time out, push pause, regroup, rest, be fully expressed, chill out and experience moving from states of dis.ease to states of refreshed and ready to jump back into conference activities.
