As a facilitator, I help design and hold liberatory space providing process leadership, support, structure, accountability, and guidance. I’m experienced in a number of creative and participatory facilitation methods which help your group unleash their wisdom, gifts and grounded actions.
My approach is to listen to and trust the wisdom of those most impacted by historic and present day injustices. I partner with you to identify and convene a small design team, of people connected to your work, who hold diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. Together we engage in a participatory design process that creates space for clarifying the context of your work, engaging others in the process, crafting desired outcomes, and thinking about how to skillfully facilitate spaces that move your inner and outer work forward.
Our work together invites people to bring their whole selves and the intersections of their multiple identities are seen, felt and celebrated. My approach is rooted in the understanding and the lived experience of working within a white supremacist, patriarchal, heteronormative, ableist, capitalist system designed to exploit and oppress people who hold marginalized identities in this society. Most of my facilitation work is with a co-facilitator and involves creating liberatory practice spaces to name, explore, unlearn, and transform all levels of oppression - internalized, interpersonal, institutional and structural.
