December Wellness Workshop – Altar Building with Milvia Pacheco and Naomi Bagin
December 9 | 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
This workshop is a part of a monthly Community Wellness series co-hosted by RVC and Communities Rise. November’s workshop is focused on mindfulness meditation and Reiki. The intended audience for this workshop are folks who self-identify as Black, Indigenous or People of Color. Please feel free to share this information with other BIPOC community members who may be interested.
Each participant will create an altar for daily intention, using materials that are accessible in their own spaces, as a way to connect to their own creativity and as a resource for personal and collective healing. Altars are activations that focus the charge of the moment and makers. The idea is to work quickly and let intuition guide. The altar is an energy map that bears witness to your process. This workshop welcomes altar building practices from all faiths, religions and levels of spirituality.
Registration: Please register here, space is limited so sign-up soon!
About Our Facilitators:
Milvia Berenice Pacheco Salvatierra
I am an Afro-Latina artist born in Caracas-Venezuela, where I began my career as a dancer combining dance and theater training. Experiences with trauma at an early age fueled in me a pressing drive toward movement. I went on to devote my life to reaching liberation through art and movement. In this Journey, I have become a contemporary dancer, choreographer, performer, bodyworker, mother, and Community Organizer. MÁS (Movimiento Afrolatino Seattle) has become the platform where I am able to actualize and continue this empowerment work both as an artist and an organizer.
Naomi Macalalad Bragin
Naomi is a dancer, writer, educator, and healer. They use these platforms collaboratively, to help folx connect to their creative voice as a resource for healing. They’re especially interested in activating the space between identities—using movement, voice, and words.
