Building Body Resilience from Dis-ease- Healing Justice for Black and Brown Bodies Vulnerable to Covid-19
Time & Location
About This Event
We will gather to hold our bodies in realtion to the impacts of the current time of transition we are in. This space will acknowledge the continued violence that inflicts our bodies by State and Empire in a colonized world and provide reflection and release to strengthen our physical beings and fortify the vessels that carry us through this existence. We will be doing Somatic Healing work to move and also allow oursleves to be energetically held in our healing by community, with the intention to create affirmations of protection and strength present to our bodies to help lift us through this trying time. Join us for this healing justice circle.
Expect to move, expect translation of movement into visual art expression and also expect to learn ritual energetic tools for offering the body healing and protection.
About Jana Lynne Umipig
My name is Jana Lynne Caldetera Umipig, daughter of Rosemarie Caldetera Umipig (Pagudpud, Ilokos Norte) and Godofredo Peralta Umipig (Santa Maria, Ilokos Sur). Born and raised on the Kingdom of Hawaii and also raised on Yokuts Territory (Stockton, CA). My current and closest relation to land is the Lenape Territory (Bronx, NY). I am a cultural and knowledge bearer through my multidisciplinary artistic expression/creation work, my role as an educator raising young sages in education for liberation and my duty as a healer in uplifting the healer within all who come to exchange with me. I embody my Sacred Work at every turn of my existence and understand my life as Ceremony and Spiritual Practice. Because of this truth, I believe that the service of artistic and healing work cannot be conducted in this "Time of Decolonization" without seeing our spirits intertwined to our justice, dignity and freedom. I invite us all to be in relation to how our integrity and honor are tightly bound to our liberation, and when we compromise them to capitalistic, patriarchal and white supremist ties, our freedom is ceded. I am a humble co-creator of the Sacred Circles of Center for Babaylan Studies, Survival Arts and Raised Pinay.
