We are Radical. We are Resilient. We are Revolutionary. And we foster Rebirth and Regenerate in all of our offerings.
We bring into the cultural discussion a trauma-informed, strengths-based, compassionate and spiritually centered lens to invite back in our own Rebirth and Revolution.
We believe that relying solely on the outside/external world, circumstances, etc cannot save us from drowning. By default, it is always changing and will often disappoint, harm and/or hurt us. This is not personal. We believe that oppressive systems continue and work best when everybody plays their ‘part’ and sacrifices themselves – yet interruptions to those systems are possible only through the very people within and when they begin to say no more and aim for continuous quality improvement.
Hurt people Hurt people. Which is why we have created a movement that fosters Healing, Empowerment and Ownership of the indisputable Survival Skills that we’ve developed along our journey, for our journey and encourage experimentation and curiosity in fostering new growth and strategies in using such innate resources.
Through a Trauma-Informed lens, we build Empowerment through the simple curation of new knowledge and awareness, hands-on experimenting with our own inherent skill sets and gaining confidence in using what has been hidden from us in plain sight. In this way, when we heal one, the whole boat of humankind begins to rise from a level of Survival and ‘Reaction’ to a level of Thriving and ‘Rational’ functioning.
*Reaction and Rational are used loosely here and refer to areas of the brain that are engaged in our functioning and are not intended to be used pathologically.
Through learning, sharing and building a community that is inclusive without apology.
To all beings that are and have been suffering.
To all humans who have endured a trauma – a seismic rupture in their sense of safety, worldview and trajectory of life.
We commit to walking WITH and BESIDE these everyday heroes who have navigated their way to this site, at this time, in this movement.
We welcome the joining of unapologetic Living and Laughing Out Loud with a core foundation of Joy, Meaning, Purpose and, most importantly, emotional Safety.
Through radical honoring of self, we invite others to do the same through our brave, courageous and authentic life journeys, collective voices and eternal wholeness.
Self-Compassion welcomes compassion towards and from the outside world. And we are dedicated to addressing our own Clouded Compass and Practicing Consciousness and Compassion to heal the World in us and around us.
