Embody Your Healing

Retreat Description

The trauma, the grief, the exhaustion. The patriarchy, the white supremacy, the heteronormativity. It’s all in our bodies. In our cellular memory. We can’t just talk or think our way out of them. Good theology isn’t enough to save us. Our minds alone can’t do the work. But the healing, the medicine, the renewal, the revolution: that’s in our bodies too. “Embody Your Healing” is an invitation to retreat—not to escape the body and its deep knowledge—but to restore the body, to return to its core goodness and let it guide us into wholeness.
