Reclaiming Our Grandmothers' Journey with Conya Gilmore
Using breath work, movement and journaling to re-connect with our lineage of Grandmothers and recognizing past traumas to avoid re-creating them in the present/future.
During this workshop we will begin to reclaim and cast light onto the path of the first women/feminine presence in our lives. Our Grandmothers’ energies and experiences are transferred to us while they carry our mother within their womb. We will explore how our line of Grandmothers have inspired and shaped us in spirit and deed before our very first breath.
How can we honor and transmute the ways our bodies hold onto this joy/trauma. Ours? Our Grandmothers? Our Communities?
