Red Kite Rising created a program for CHOP’s Homeless Health Initiative to be utilized with the residents at Jane Adams Place, a shelter for women and children fleeing domestic violence. We would use somatic, movement-based therapies and other processes that were aimed at helping participants to re-embody, and reconnect with their bodies to assist them in living healthier, happier lives. Martial arts and circle processes were a large part of the trainings, and after only a short period of time, fighting in the shelters had stopped among the participants of the program.
