How do we cultivate a sense of groundedness and spaciousness within the context of our ever-changing realities and experiences both at an individual and wider systematic level?
We will explore how we find ground through body-based practices, including guided meditation, experiential movement, deep rest and (optional) sharing. All of these practices are rooted in mindfulness and offer tools for experiencing greater presence and ease in our daily lives and in our social change work.
I'm Jilna and am based in South-East London where I teach community-based yoga/movement and meditation. I'm also training to become a cranialsacral therapist. I've worked in India on anti-caste struggles and in the UK in anti-racism and migrants' rights movements. I'm especially interested in how folks who experience oppression on multiple levels can experience more ease, joy and freedom in our daily lives.
