In this workshop led by Yunuen Rhi, participants will explore how to begin to heal intergenerational trauma through the principles of internal martial arts. They will be initiated in the foundations of the martial art Baguazhang as a self-healing practice and explore how it parallels Native warrior pathways. The session will be both theory and practice based. Participants will gain tools for grounding and contextualize the information in terms of the symptoms that affect our communities in the present moment, such as anxiety, depression, low immunity, divisiveness, and burn out.
