" I want more of this experience of community showing up so fully and beautifully.
This is some of what will change the world."
I have been facilitating healing and transformation within community for over a decade through workshops, rituals, ceremonies, trainings, and land-based retreats. My community events are trauma informed, inclusive, economically accessible, and weave together a wide range of practices including somatic and embodiment practices, ways of council, nonviolent communication, earth-honoring ritual, ancestral healing, poetry, song, lament and vocalization practices. I have led groups from between 3 and 300 people and have worked internationally throughout the UK and the US.
I facilitate community grief rituals, have curated and facilitated grieving ceremonies for festivals and other gatherings, offer transitional ceremonies for individuals, couples, families and communities, and offer guest facilitation. I am a facilitator for the Restorative Circles process developed by Dominic Barter, the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium created by the Pachamama Alliance, and Joanna Macy's The Work That Reconnects. I have worked with a diversity of groups including youth on probation, activists, veterans, native youth, eco-villages, and the homeless community.
My passion for creating circles of beauty, meaning, and truth-telling emerges from my longing to support the just transition from an industrial growth society built on injustice, divided by intolerance, fueled by fear, and addicted to consumption, toward one rooted in sacred reciprocity and deep belonging. I see the turbulent times we are living in as an invitation to come into spiritual employment in service to the healing of our world, as we are each called to reconnect with our tender humanity and deepest values, reclaim our inherent worth, and bring forth our unique gifts.
