Choice – Zoom Talk with Meenadchi
Welcome to Week 16 of the Needs’ Year!
This week Joachim Berggren will have a conversation with Meenadchi about the need of Choice.
Meenadchi (pronouns: they/she) is a facilitator and somatic practitioner whose work centers the softness of meeting our best self and deepening into our collective light. Using family constellation therapy and NVC, Meenadchi weaves workshops in which participants reconnect with the intuitive wisdom of our bodies and co-create intergenerational healing by changing the way we speak to ourselves, each other, and the universe. Meenadchi holds a clinical license in occupational therapy and has historically served communities impacted by state and gender-based violence, complex trauma, and serious mental illness. They are the author of Decolonizing Non-Violent Communication (2019). Read more about Meenadchi here: www.meenadchi.com
Meenadchi says: “I think of choice as the initial condition that allows non-violence to blossom. When we act out of alignment with our values, it’s often because we feel we have no other choice. I enjoy thinking about how we can reclaim connection to choice in order to deepen care for self and others.”
