Clinical psychologist Dr. Nathalie Edmond presents "The Somatics of Being a Racial Being" via Zoom.

We hold being racial beings in our bodies and that gets passed down through the generations. White people as a collective tend not to see themselves as racial beings so when invited in or called out about whiteness they don’t have the capacity or haven’t built the muscle to have meaningful dialogues about race and be antiracist. This conversation will explore what unexamined whiteness looks like somatically and how bodies of color also hold racial trauma in their bodies.
Dr. Nathalie Edmond is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment of trauma and the mind-body-spirit connection. She is also a yoga teacher and an antiracism consultant and takes an embodied approach to everything she does. She owns a group practice in Ewing and launched an antiracism membership community called Antiracism Revolution a couple of months ago to help support exploration of ourselves as racial beings and build an antiracist life.
