This virtual program is for creatives, allies, and change-makers who are ready to deeply engage with a highly interactive transformational process to embody a regenerative personal and professional lifestyle and practice. Explorations will include mindfulness as activism, intersectional social justice, physical embodiment as anti-oppression work, and creative liberation. We will be re-imagining our current society through an innovative immersion of modern (Kumospace, a web-based gathering platform) and ancient (bodily wisdom) technology.
❖ Are you a creative who has been craving more creative flow or feeling disconnected from creative expression?
❖ Are you socially conscious but seeking more knowledge and understanding of social justice issues?
❖ Do you want a collaborative co-creative space to dive deeper into your activism and/or creativity?
❖ Do you care about making the world more equal, just, and regenerative?
❖ Have you been feeling stagnant or repressed in your full, authentic expression?
❖ Do you have a desire to transform and expand your relationship with yourself, your community, or the earth?
❖ Do you have an idea of or practice in intersectional activism but want to learn and expand how it applies to your be-ing?
❖ Are you willing to go beneath the surface to own your power and agency with a group of diverse change-makers?
Then we got you.
