In our mini-course, we'll guide you through one hour of video exploring how to embody DEI work using somatics. 

We'll guide you through the following:

  • Examine the challenges faced in DEI work, and explore how these challenges are often rooted in a disembodied approach to change.

  • Define and explain the concepts of embodiment and somatics and their relevance to DEI work.

  • Begin building awareness around the body as a source of knowledge and wisdom when working with discomfort, resistance, and other complex issues around DEI in the workplace.
