As a central and leading project, The Black Embodiment Initiative (BEI)  is a unique space for Black people to explore what is possible in our lives and relationships when we are more embodied.

This project will hold space for learning and practice of the embodied skills that allow us to reinhabit ourselves as organic beings and move towards healing and more just relationships and just futures.

Currently, the Black Embodiment Initiative has focused on support for organizers in the most recent wave of uprisings protesting extrajudicial killings of Black people, supporting healing justice approaches and formations currently existing and springing up in this moment.

In March 2021, we launched our first Black Embodiment Basics Course, training 150 folks in a virtual three-day series. We closed with a spontaneous, hour-long dance party, celebrating all the windows of possibility and healing that we opened together.  Look out for more upcoming offerings from BEI in Spring 2022!
