I am excited to offer trainings and workshops that are designed specifically with the goal of maximizing socially-conscious inter-personal, professional, and community growth and wellness. All trainings are offered from a foundation of healing centered engagement and are oppression and trauma-informed.
Dear Lovely Humans:
COVID-19, national uprisings due to long-time racial injustices, increasing economic inequities, and a critical presidential election are converging to make 2020 a very difficult – and important – year. In these uncertain and surreal times, we must wisely prepare for the long haul – as individuals, as well as in unity with each other.
Being socially conscious people we have a drive and dedication to try to be the best version of ourselves we can be and to be active participants in making our world more just. Our current social-political climate may leave us feeling frightened, hopeless, triggered, fatigued, and isolated.
Simultaneously, it also has galvanized and inspired connection, resistance, and action in thousands of people across our state, the country, and around the globe.
An essential ingredient to keepin’ on with making personal and community change is meaningful healthy connection – with ourselves and with like-minded others.
Continue to be the strong, self-aware, and compassionate humans that you are. It takes us all…one at a time.
Take good care,
