Parcon Resilience is an organization dedicated to undoing racism in the world by starting with concrete relationships in the body through movement and touch to one’s own context, to others and to the environment. The work is funded by grants, workshops fees and donations from friends and community like you. We are dedicated to making Parcon Resilience a vehicle for all people to transform their embodied realities to the world. Your contributions help us to build the work with marginalized communities.

Movement

   By Ione L. Lewis
 

Moving around not sure where my body is going to take me

Trusting myself and not having to worry about how I look

just focused on moving to the groove of my on beat

Not having to worry about boundaries within my walls

For the longest time I felt restricted and powerless in my own body

Not feeling that I had the strength or the ability to move the way I wanted

Now I feel strong, free and alive

Adding a person to my movement is kinda of scary

I have to trust them, I don't trust easy

We have to move together and listen to each other's rhythm

My balance is not so great, I may need some assistance

Will they hold me up and catch me before I fall

This awkward C.P. body, who will understand the way it moves

Who will be able to move with me and pick up my rhythm

It actually happened I was able to move with other people and trust myself

as well as them, I let go and let my my body lead me

Rolling around on a rough surface of earth, afraid of falling on my face or head

as I gripped onto the rock

Pushing my body up at first I stumbled, that's normal on unfamiliar surfaces

Finally I'm on my hands in knees 

Wow, now someone is holding me up and I'm flipping over their back

Up in the air I never felt a rush like this

moving together side by side, feeling each other's energy and movements

Communicating through touch is amazing

Feeling what we may be thinking without a single word

Knowing when to start, stop or continue with just moving my body

Feeling free and alive, now I can not stop 

Moving!
