Mindfulness & Embodiment: Returning to Ourselves for Liberation and Peace (Network & Fellows)

This is a Virtual Event: information to connect via Zoom will be shared upon registration

April 12 @ 9:00 am 4:00 pm

Session Description:

An embodied sense of presence requires that we begin with a knowing of the most basic elements of who and what we are. Returning to that knowledge will allow us to engage and explore an informed somatic practice that supports an anti-oppressive approach to body wisdom.

Note: Primary session content will be delivered in English. Interpretation is available and can be requested in the registration form. If this is something you’d appreciate, please register by March 29th so we can plan ahead.

Contact: Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns at rji@democraticeducation.org

Guest Speaker for Mindfulness & Embodiment: Returning to Ourselves for Liberation and Peace

Jylani Ma’at believes in a healing-centered approach to an embodied and integrated practice of well-being. Remembering and experiencing our connection to our bodies, the Earth and to each other are the key elements to a whole state of well-being.

Our physical and emotional states have cycles, just like the Earth. Once we attune to those cycles, we can access healing & expansion in the most natural and fortifying ways. Meditation, movement, music and mindfulness are a few of the modalities that Jylani believes create the highest value across wellness platforms. With clients, she co-creates culturally relevant programs that feel right for them. She believes in a collaborative approach to direct service because we all deserve to express our own needs, in our own voice.

She is a veteran educator, medical professional, entrepreneur, and consultant who has helped numerous people find wellness in their bodies and spirits. Over the past 30 years, she has had direct experience working with youth, adults, communities, schools, organizations, and corporations. She believes in a collaborative approach to direct service, for the people by the people.
