Decolonization as a Form of Mental Health Practice (Healing Ancestral Wounds of the Mind, Passed Down from Generation to Generation): a Workshop with Jana Lynne Umipig

This workshop exposes participants to methods of self-care and emphasizes ways in which we can connect with the pre-colonial past as well as anti-colonial, anti-racist, transinclusive, feminist politics in our contemporary times. We will also uphold and create messages of revolutionary and resilient affirmation to begin processes of spiritual, expressive, and intellectual liberation.

The workshop will involve physical movement and time for reflective contemplation so please bring comfortable clothing and something to write with for the workshop.

This is an echo event of the Asian American Feminism x Mental Health and Wellness installation. This event is open to the general public.
