Conference and Clinic
RooT’s People's Healing Conference and Clinic is a multi-day event grounded in the truth that healing from trauma is within the survivor's and community's grasps. It places the participant at the center, making healing democratic and asset based. The facilitator's role is to create the conditions for participants' inherent healing to emerge.
Collective healing workshops and one on one space holding equip survivors with practical skills that can be used to address individual and community healing while becoming introduced to the benefits of holistic strategies.
Unlike most conferences, sessions are interactive and geared toward assuring that survivors walk away with knowledge that is immediately usable, for both personal and communal growth. Sessions are NOT recorded, as participants may share sensitive content.
The conference also allows the opportunity for participants to obtain healing tools from local vendors at more affordable prices.
To make it sustainable and accessible, childcare and food are provided using local vendors who share similar visions as RooT.
USES OF ANGER
Collective exercises and personal reflection in this workshop will guide us to look to anger as a site of wisdom, clarification, and long-sought answers.
Reclaiming and deepening the felt sense of choice, clarity, trust, and empowerment in ourselves. We'll explore the somatic ranges of where we begin and end, our clear "NO" to our joyful "YES", and everything in between.
For many, grief is linked to generational wounds that have been pushed deep down in order to survive. As white supremacy and capitalist culture urge us to “move on” from our grief, we’re making space to be seen and witnessed in our pain, and discover the wisdom that emerges when we befriend it.
Offering a new vision of resilience that honors lived experience, validates past coping, and reframes resilience as something inherent rather than something to be acheive.d
