Sherry Walling and Lynn Lunny talk about healing heartache through movement specifically through circus arts during their interview today with WCCO/CBS News.
Dr. Sherry Walling is a psychologist, author and aerial arts performer. Lynn Lunny is a circus arts performer and teacher. Both women tragically lost their brothers to suicide, and it was movement that helped them cope and manage their grief. During Mental Health Awareness month, they share their personal stories about how they found their outlet to heal.
This experience includes about 25hrs of Professional Development in Race Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, 3 consecutive sessions + 1 follow session, your workbook and tools, and so much more confidence and clarity in how to engage this very important and impactful work.
About this Intensive Experience:
This 3 part experience, taking individuals from [A]WAKEned, to [A]WOKEned, to WORKin’, is one stepping stone in a lifelong process of curating more welcoming and supportive spaces with regards to race equity.
This series is especially curated for those in the Twin Cities Circus & Performing Arts Community, a metro with some of the worst race disparities in the country. This disparity is constantly showing up in Twin Cities performing arts spaces of both instruction and performance.
Individuals will take part in this intensive because they want opportunities to get to know black and brown people trying alternative arts more often AND they want to be a part of welcoming people of all races to come, to stay, to play, and to authentically take up space.
