Leadership: Aligning Brain and Body
for Racial Justice Workers
presented by Madeline McNeely, M.Ed.
Thursday, June 4, 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Have you ever felt a golf ball in your throat or a bowling ball land in your stomach because you saw a racist act (for example the killing of Eric Garner on video)? What do you do with the rush of adrenalin and cortisol that flushes through the body when you're confronted with racism? What happens when anger and fear inhibit your ability to act? Our bodies, like sponges, absorb collective rage and trauma. This workshop will teach you tools from neuroscience and body-oriented leadership development to build your capacity to interrupt racism and heal the traumas and illnesses that come from racism with compassion. How? We will study our body's response to stress and practice "recovering center" repeatedly so we can consistently generate the impact we seek in our lives personally and in our racial justice work leading people and projects.
