#CIRCLEUP SERIES

We are living through an age where self-care and healing is not only elusive but being commodified at the same time. In 2015, our collective conjured free healing sessions, “The First Line of Defense is Our Bodies,” across Upper Manhattan and the South Bronx. This year, we’re back and ready to heal in community with you.

We believe in a holistic health and healing perspective; health and healing is not just about a physical body, but being truly embodied in all aspects of our beings. This is particularly cruical as we navigate ever-changing landscapes and communities across New York City. 

Each workshop will explore a different method of healing; radical self-care, coming home to our bodies through movement, creating our own medicine, and through telling our own stories. Our hope is that you will not only harness the knowledge that is shared, but to go out and share these accessible practices with your communities.

Full Workshop Schedule:
1) Rediscovering Your Banjee Realness – Saturday, July 9
2) Movement Workshop – Sunday, July 24
3) Remedios and Medicine Making – Saturday, August 6
4) Storytelling Workshop – Saturday, August 13

About Griselda:
A native of Brooklyn, New York, with roots in the Dominican heritage, Griselda Rodriguez grew up in what are often considered impoverished communities. Those communities and her mother’s efforts are what she attributes to having overcome adversity and persisted in achieving her goals of attaining a PhD. Currently a Professor of Sociology at the City College of New York, Griselda balances her time between teaching the youth, practicing Kundalini yoga and assisting women during labor as a doula. Mother to a beautiful baby boy Talib, she is grateful to be a vessel of healing.”

Asides from her bio, we encourage you to get to know better Griselda through her recent reflection on the Aquarian Age here.

We’re honored to support someone who has given so much to our community. Please spread the word and we hope to see you during one of these sessions! We’ll be in touch with more healing offerings and circles soon!

Much love,
the SCC
