About this Event

An introduction to Somatics as a practice and a pathway for feeling, healing, transformation.

Offered by somatic practitioners:

Donaji Lona

Donaji Lona integrates her Biniza (Zapotec) indigenous ancestral legacy of interdependence, resilience, resistance, and community struggle into the organic transformation process and integrates politicized somatics in her work with clients. She has been a long-term community organizer for immigrant rights (POWER) and as a member of (National Domestic Workers Alliance). She brings her commitment to social justice to her politicized healing work. She’s been a teacher and practitioner in the field of somatics for over ten years. Her experience as the mother of two sons, one with Down syndrome (now an ancestor), has defined her vision of inclusion and care for life.

Jennifer Moran

Jennifer Moran is a healer (healing her own past traumas and ancestral lineage) and holistic bodyworker who is committed to healing the world through individualized somatic understanding, building strong families and communities, and promoting health equity. Her studies of somatics, psychology and anthropology, special education, bodywork and energywork, integrative medicine, birthwork and end of life transition all give insight and contribute to the well-rounded approach she has in working with her clients. Jen also has strong spiritual practices that guide her and her path forward.

Sue Kuyper

During the years of 2001-2009, Sue worked with rural, urban, and indigenous survivors of genocide and political repression in Guatemala. She offers an in-depth multicultural, international, and multidisciplinary perspective with expertise in community worker vicarious trauma, transnational families, immigration trauma, and embodied whiteness. She is a single mother with co-parents of two multiracial young people who teach her to stay humble and committed to deep change every single day.
