This is part two of a three-part workshop series focused on queer black communities designed to educate participants on the benefits of incorporating awareness of the mind, body and spirit to foster mental well-being, healing and hope for the future.

Created and facilitated by our special guests Marquita Moten and Jonathan Mathias Lassiter PhD.

These workshops are presented by QTPOC at Strut, but all are welcome. The activities of this workshop will be presented in a manner that individuates each component through activity, while incorporating them through education and discussion. As mental health professionals, the hosts and facilitators believe a holistic approach to therapy provides the greatest impact and promotes wholeness from within. This workshop is designed to provide each participant with a glimpse into their own well-being while simultaneously presenting them with tools that can be used alone or in complement with seeing a therapist.


Part Two-Integrating the Body: This is a psycho-somatic workshop designed to promote increased awareness of, and connection to the physical body. We will discuss what psycho-somatic means, how it relates to mental health and bring awareness to participants by utilizing a dance activity.

  1. a) Introduction of topic and discussion
  2. b) Activity-Psychosomatic dance
  3. c) Q&A
