The Issues in Our Tissues: Neurobiology, Trauma, Embodiment, and Social Justice

March 6, 4:30 PM


Jacoby Ballard, a yoga and meditation teacher with more than 20 years of unique experience, will lead a philosophical and theoretical conversation about the effect of mindfulness on our nervous system, how the trauma of injustice lives in our body/heart/minds, and tools for the work we must do to evolve together as a campus and as a society. Drawing upon his work in grassroots movements, prisons, schools, and recovery centers, with an anti-racist and feminist analysis, Ballard will offer both scientific evidence and compelling stories toward the efficacy of these ancient tools for our modern concerns. We will explore tools, from philosophy to embodiment to better care for ourselves and work more effectively and collaboratively with others.
