2020 Course Application
generative somatics (gs) works to grow social and environmental justice movements that possess the creativity and power needed to transform society. We do this by bringing somatic transformation to movement leaders, organizations, and alliances—using holistic practice and embodied change to lead with love and rigor, align our actions with our values and heal from trauma and the impacts of oppression. In particular, in this moment of escalating crisis and growing resistance, gs is committed to supporting movements working toward freedom from political repression and state violence (including criminalization, militarization, surveillance, imprisonment, policing, etc.) and building scalable alternatives (such as transformative justice); and those creating climate and environmental justice (just transition, land sovereignty, environmental racism, etc.).
