Event Details


Trauma is a big word. But it can also simply stand for the fact that pain, (also psychological pain), and loss are a part of life. Injuries can heal. To paraphrase Peter Levine, who is groundbreaking with his work on the subject of trauma and healing, it is not the difficult experience or the accident itself that is the problem. It is the traumatic energy bound in the body that can be so hard to deal with. This tension in the nervous system can be released. When the release is possible it has a beneficial influence on the overall situation of the body and the state of mind.

In this workshop and discussion, Emma Steel will guide participants to explore breathing techniques, body awareness meditations and very simple exercises that can be done lying down or sitting that regulate our nervous systems.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid,

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.



Emma Steel

Emma Steel is interested in communication experiments that break conventions, in humour and in how we can become closer to our own inner biests while remaining professional or true to who you want to be. In her workshops she finds it important for everyone to make mistakes and ask stupid questions, thereby making communal learning possible.
