Healing The Imprints Of Sexual Trauma workshop
Apr 13, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm| $50.00
Are you interested in learning new tools and resources for supporting sexual trauma survivors, whether through your professional practice or in your personal life? Are you curious to discover new ways of relating to your own journey of survival?
Join Street Yoga and Molly Boeder Harris this April, during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, as we explore the physiological impacts of sexual assault and how viewing survivors with a trauma-informed lens brings about greater safety and empowerment.
Through a combination of lecture, group discussion and a trauma-informed yoga practice, this experiential half-day workshop will illuminate the spectrum of sexual trauma, explore theoretical perspectives on trauma resilience, and cover key methods to promote healing in a variety of settings. Our facilitator, Molly, draws from a combination of direct experience, professional work, and academic research, enabling her to attest to both the potential vulnerabilities and the inherent resilience of sexual assault survivors.
In light of Street Yoga’s impending closure this spring, 100% of donation proceeds from this workshop will be given to a fellow nonprofit doing similar work with youth in the yoga/trauma space (details TBA). Visit www.streetyoga.org/workshop-2019 for updates.
**Space is limited; only 30 spots available. Register early to claim yours before we fill up!
Date and Time: 13 April 2019, from 11:30am-3:30pm.
Venue: The Grinning Yogi – Greenwood, 8554 1/2 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103.
About the instructor: Molly Boeder Harris
In 2012, Molly founded a non-profit organization, The Breathe Network: Building Resilience through Embodied Approaches To Healing in order to connect survivors of sexual trauma with resources and information about the many powerful healing arts modalities that facilitate the transformation of trauma and to more easily identify trauma-informed healing arts practitioners. The Breathe Network also provides training for healing arts practitioners across a spectrum of disciplines, including; acupuncture, chiropractic, energy healing, massage, psychotherapy, yoga and more, which serves to enhance their capacity to offer survivor-centered, trauma-informed care within their practice.
She holds a Master’s Degree in International Studies and a Master’s Certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies. Molly is also a certified yoga instructor offering public classes and private instruction as well as workshops specifically focused on healing trauma through yoga. She facilitates workshops and teacher immersion trainings for yoga instructors seeking to gain greater skill and confidence in teaching with a trauma-informed lens. In early 2015, Molly began her 3-year training in Somatic Experiencing, a revolutionary and naturalistic trauma-resolution method designed by Dr. Peter Levine. With over 300 hours of study, she will complete her Somatic Experiencing training in the Fall of 2018 and already infuses this approach into her yoga teaching, as well, she shares this somatic healing practice on its own to support people in restoring balance within their nervous systems.
