Peace and Presence: Trauma Informed Song-Writing

October 13, 2021
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

This workshop works with simple lyric writing prompts in which participants are encouraged to write lists by tuning into their senses, colors around them, tastes, aromas, sounds, etc. This is a highly effective and enjoyable workshop, as each participants' contributions are woven into a song creation.

Peace & Presence is a Columbia SVR initiative that introduces diverse holistic wellness tools and techniques for survivors of sexual trauma to experience and adapt to their own wellness needs. The program envisions a space where survivors feel held, understood without having to explain themselves, and given space to breathe and connect with one another in profoundly spiritual and experiential ways. Through its multi-faceted approach to mindfulness, movement and nurturing of one’s body, this program hopes to aid survivors to recognize and cherish their innate capacity to transcend trauma while being connected to a caring community of allies.

This session will be facilitated by Morely Kaman-Bruce Morley Kamen Bruce is a professional musician who utilizes the healing power of music and creative writing when working with people. She has over 15 years of international experience teaching war veterans, domestic violence survivors, elders, children & adults in shelters, correctional facilities, post-conflict zones, rehabilitation centers & public schools.
