Local Sources of Unique Support:
Mary Seamster and Melanya Helene
I have experienced the support and comfort of these two wise women, who each offer connection and healing in profound ways - Mary through touch in the warm water of her blessed watsu pool and Melanya through her embodied presence. Mary offers trainings and individual time, and Melanya individual work and groups. To get a sense of Melanya and Mary, here they are on youtube. And here is more information about each of them - Mary and Melanya.
My dear friends and colleagues, Danette Gillespie-Otto and Marc Otto, offer unique IPNB-rich workshops for People of Color both here in Portland and in other cities as well. Their work addresses racism with the clarity and compassion born of personal experience and deep study of relational neuroscience. Marc also offers workshops regarding racism for white humans. You can find their work on their websites - Danette and Marc.
