What is Justice in your Body? Here at JITB we invite you to be curious, to go inside yourself and discover what your path is to creating justice in your body.
This is a dynamic exploration + path - creating space and ways for your body to guide you towards justice, love of self & other, deep restorative health + liberation.
At Justice in the Body we provide ideas, questions, classes, workshops, a blog, and interviews as jumping off points to explore justice in your body.
There is no one right way to create justice in your body - it's your path, your process and your liberation. Follow your truth + stay curious.
Cultivating dynamic community is the roots of Justice in the Body. Together we can create conditions for restoring justice in the body. New possibilities are often enabled through love, support and encouragement.
No matter where you live or what you're going through, you are welcome to be a part of the JITB community.
"So how do we encourage a less hostile society? Know that listening, being listened to, allowing people to have their narrative is the most healing piece. Because every time the story can be shared, people heal at some level in their deepest selves. That’s really important. I think justice in the body comes when the narrative is allowed to be expressed. Justice in the body requires community who can hold the narrative without judgement." -Anonymous
