We can come to your community or organization to offer workshops about creativity, leadership, healing, and diversity! Learn about some of our offerings here and request more specific programming by contacting us at the bottom of the page.
Each of us is a leader with the power to make changes in our life, our communities, and the world through our choices- but to become a hero, first we must see ourselves as the protagonist of our own story. The stories we tell about ourselves and the world shape what we can imagine for the future and the people and culture around us. What we imagine we have the ability to create, so transformational leadership begins by listening to- and rewriting- our own stories, collaboratively imagining a future we want to live in. We learn to build bridges between the story we imagine for ourself and the future we desire through creative toolkits and collaboration.
How can we build a community of liberty for all? How can we get free together? We weave the millennial mindset into the DNA of our communities through stories, empathy, and empowerment. Too often we find that an organization falls apart due to internal conflicts more than external factors. We share communication and intervention techniques and process the conflicts that often arise in movements of people who do not share the same background, education, experiences, and/or strategies, and discuss best practices to improve intergroup understanding, relationships, empathy and collaboration including "Radical Respect." We share our Ecosystem Model of organizing that allows space for various forms of activism & participation. We believe there is enough room in the world for everyone’s mission aligned vision. Changemakers should build each other up, learn from each other, and share capacity, not tear each other down for limited external resources.
Resilience & Revitalization
You may have heard the phrase, “Hurt people hurt people.” In our experience, that certainly rings true for activists and survivors of all forms of trauma-- but how can we transform our wounds into the wisdom necessary to heal ourselves and our communities? We are a traveling meet-up community using mindfulness, meditation, and movement to heal & care for ourselves and one another.
Our first set of events are going to be hosted in Miami, FL. Follow our facebook page to hear about new locations as they are added.
Trauma-- including everyday microtraumas-- leave seemingly indelible imprints in our bodies, minds, and hearts, guiding and shaping how we move in the world, how we interact with others, and even how we relate to ourselves. Although society teaches us to distance ourselves from emotions and experiences that make us feel vulnerable, pushing these powerful learning moments away from our consciousness means that they guide the decisions we make without us even realizing it. True healing is not based in shame, but in love, creativity, honesty, and respect.
Much of our insight into trauma healing comes from guiding our own healing journeys after realizing the limitations of the diagnosis-based approach to mental and emotional health. We’ve worked with survivors of sexual assault and hate crimes all over the United States, and conducted a healing and life coaching practice in Miami, Florida. We’ve also facilitated group sessions of trauma healing using several techniques that we’ve found to be particularly helpful.
Within our healing workshops, we share trauma healing techniques to take into one’s own personal practice, including Emotional Freedom Technique and Trauma Release Exercises. We explain the neuroscience and psychology of trauma, as well as how trauma affects our physiology and guides our decision making. We also offer tailored affirmations and meditative practices.
We are also developing a regular submission based zine sharing healing techniques, herbal remedies, artwork and writing for and by the community.
