(they/them) B.A. Social School/Gender Stuies is certified MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction by Jon Kabat-Zinn) teacher, Yoga teacher, Massage therapist, NVC (Non-violent Communication by Marshal Rosenberg) fascilitator and coach, movement artist/dancer, community organizer, and vegetarian chef! They made works for different dance productions and international houses in Germany, Tunisia, the US and Switzerland which were informed by own biographic material as someone growing up on the intersection of many in betweens. Their approach as somatic bodyworker and movement and mindfulness teacher is deeply informed by their personal practice and experience as a queer person of color. As a fascilitator and co-organizer of "Queer Meditation Berlin" and later co-founder and initiator of the "Rainbow and PoC Sangha Berlin" they had the opportunity to lead numerous different retreats and events for the LGBTQIA+ and PoC communities for a number of years. Sarra's work is deeply inspired by their spiritual teacher Thich Nhat Hanh and different queer and BPoC (Dharma)teachers within the Plumvillage Tradition and beyond, such as Rev. Angel Kyodo, Lama Red Owens, Adrienne Maree Brown, Coral Shorts and others.
