1:30pm - Sound Healing Activity

Drawing from the Healing Centered Engagement framework and Dr. Angela Davis’s decades of work bridging prison abolition to K-12 education, Dr. Farima will take students, faculty and staff on an experiential journey exploring abolition and healing to break cycles of harm as we continue to think about what it means to be a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). She will highlight how colonial schooling, trauma, grief, and punishment eventually led her to abolitionist teaching and understanding the possibilities of transformation when centering healing at the individual, interpersonal, and institutional levels. Healing and abolition are vital for our collective liberation and teaching can be a journey toward practicing our values of being in right relation to ourselves, one another, land, resources, power, and ancestors. This keynote and workshop are invitations to collectively imagining how we can create another world that we know is possible.

Special Guest Facilitator: Brittany Tanner, founder of The Song Remedy. Brittany is a musical artist, mother, and entrepreneur centering the enrichment of community through the healing arts. She is a member of the Emmy award-winning group SOL Development, a hip-hop/soul/jazz ensemble, and a founding artist of the powerful healing collective, BE-IMAGINATIVE. Her work has been highlighted in publications within KQED, Okay player, The Root, SF Chronicles, World Channel, MLK NOW, and Revolt TV. Brittany will lead a sound healing session. Feel free to bring a yoga mat, or blanket if you would like to lie down for this portion of the workshop. Chairs will also be available.
