Language Liberation

With all the diversity in the world, why is just one language seen as the common language? English dominates globally. Even in conferences where no one has English as their first language, English is used to communicate amongst people who speak many different languages. What do we lose when we allow this domination? What languages have we lost in our family tree? Explore these questions over two hours, through somatic exercises and breakout sessions. We’ll have a dance break at the midway point. Book for 22nd September or choose your own date through Calendly

Cultural Appropriation

What does cultural appropriation? What is the difference between appreciation, sharing, and appropriation? What is it about the dominant white culture that leads to appropriation? Let’s explore this over two hours, with lots of somatic work and breakout rooms, plus the midway dance break. Book for 22nd September or choose your own date through Calendly

Combined Workshop: Hope & Privilege and Certainty

In the first hour, we ask: How do we talk about hope? What do we mean and does it depend on the context? And what does our philosophy about hope and use of the word say about our own privilege? How do the two interact? Does it reflect on our culture, our language? Our second hour reflects on how our dominant culture is uneasy about uncertainty about the future. We want answers now. We want solutions. We want guarantees. What is this mindset about? What do we need to explore in order to be more open to other ways of viewing the future? How does this play out in the context of climate change, ecological destruction, and collapse-driven narratives? Through a combination of prompts, breakout rooms, somatic exercises, and a midway dance break… over two hours, we start the exploration together.

Nonviolence in a Violent World

What does it mean to be nonviolent in a violent world? What is violence and what is nonviolence? Who is perpetrating the violence? What does a commitment to nonviolence look like when we live in this world? We’ll explore these questions over two hours, with plenty of somatic exercises and breakout sessions, and a dance break at the midway point. Book for 7th October or choose your own date with Calendly

A Solution that Works for Everyone

An introduction to Convergent Facilitation. What do we need to keep in mind as we look for solutions that work for everyone. This is based on Miki Kashtan’s work. The workshop is two hours long and looks at each stage of facilitation. Dance break midway through. Book this for 7th October (note it is four hours long) or choose your own date through Calendly (two hours long). 

Community Accountability

When harm occurs within a community, what is the healthy response? We will look at the advice in Harper & Biel’s book, How to Be Accountable and see how it lands in our bodies and minds. We’ll have breakout rooms and a dance break at the midway point of our two-hour time together. Book this for 11th November or choose your own date through Calendly

Restorative Justice

With so much scrutiny of the police, what is justice? What is wrong with the current system and what is meant by restorative and transformational justice? This workshop just seeks to take the very first steps toward exploring these huge issues… We all get to start at square one, with loads of breakout rooms and a dance break at the midway point of the two hours. We’ll keep checking in with our bodies to stay connected and grounded in where we’re at with these huge issues. Book this for 11th November or choose your own date with Calendly

Support Pods & Mutual Aid

What can we learn from mutual aid and disability justice siblings about support pods and how best to take care of one another and keep each other as safe as possible? What is it about our dominant culture that makes it hard for so many of us to even just knock on our neighbour’s door? We spend two hours exploring examples and our (somatic) responses to them. Plenty of breakout rooms and a midway dance break. Book this for 11th November or choose your own date through Calendly.
