This workshop will be both theory and practice based, using foundations of Baguazhang martial arts in an internal, self-healing practice. Participants will explore how to heal intergenerational trauma, gain tools for grounding, and contextualize the symptoms that affect our communities, such as anxiety, depression, low immunity, divisiveness, and burn out.

Yunuen Rhi's roots are in Mexico, the United States, and Korea. Rhi has cultivated western, eastern, and native medicine pathways and practices as a way to deepen the understanding of “selves.” Rhi has worked with Native communities in Mexico and their migrant counterparts in California in relation to native language and culture revitalization. Rhi’s performance interest lies in ritual and social practice as a way to create effective bridges between performance and community needs in a decolonial setting.
