Body Awareness Workshop with Patricia Panther

As a physical performer the need to be fit, energised, alert and ready to take your body through gruelling time tables and the physical demands of performance, requires the body to be as conditioned, injury free and healthy as possible.

Patricia Panther believes the main reason she has been able to sustain herself through such processes is Shiatsu. As a qualified Shiatsu therapist she has had to learn about the body, its energetic pathways and how something as simple as touch aids recovery. We will be looking into how Shiatsu combined with yogic stretches, breath and body awareness can help you delve into the creative depths that lie within the body.

This class will be an informal talk and open discussion into the structure of the body, acupressure points and creativity. The event is wheelchair accessible.

Reading Séance: Your Silence Will Not Protect You – A Collection of Writings by Audre Lorde

Séances grew popular with the founding of the religion of spiritualism in the mid-19th century. They stem from the belief that the spirits are able to communicate with the living. These communications could be mediated through spirit channelling, visions, trance lectures and automatic writing.

The practice of channelling the voices of others become popular among black women, who in the mid 19th century, were voiceless in society. Through séances, black women could speak. The gift of oration empowered them to express anger and outrage at the civil and social injustices they experienced and observed. Many Black Spiritualists used their abilities of communication to challenge racism and sexism and campaign for a reformation of society.

This powerful spiritualist tradition lives on in the writing of Audre Lorde, who was a 'black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet' who believed in the power of language and speaking to articulate selfhood, confront injustice and bring about change in the world.

Facilitated by Ashanti Harris, in this reading group as séance, we will collectively read texts and poetry from Your Silence Will Not Protect You – a collection of writings by Audre Lorde. The reading will be followed by a group discussion and an individual process of automatic writing.

There will be refreshments and treats to support the process. This event is for self-identifying women and non-binary people. This event will be BSL interpreted and wheelchair accessible.
