Healing-Centered Gatherings & Retreats
Healing-centered gatherings have the potential to transform our world. Social, economic, and environmental injustices inflict violence on our communities, leading to individual and collective trauma. It has been said that trauma is the glue that holds together the systems that harm and separate us, and we believe this to be true.
Those of us who have been socialized in settings and contexts impacted by colonialism, patriarchy, white supremacy, and ableism understand that building a new world requires truth, faith, and compassion - the greatest antidotes to injustice.
By acknowledging - rather than ignoring - the historical and ongoing harm caused by oppressive systems, and working together to develop practices that address individual and collective trauma, we can begin to build the solidarity necessary to work together to create the new systems that we deeply crave and deserve.
We partner with our clients in the co-creation of healing-centered and trauma-informed gatherings in natural or virtual spaces that draw upon a multitude of love-centering and nature-based faith and wisdom traditions, including practices indigenous to the colonized lands across the Americas, including Turtle Island and Abya Yala.
Values-Based Strategic Planning & Organizational Re-design
Organizations committed to advancing justice and creating environments of belonging for all staff must integrate their values into every aspect of their strategy, operations, structure, and the organizational DNA.

We support leaders in transforming cultures and structures in ways that are aligned to their professed or desired values. We partner with our clients to identify opportunities for culture transformation, facilitate participatory visioning for the future, and help build short-, medium-, and long-term plans to bridge the gap from the current existing culture to the desired end vision.
