I know myself as a being at the threshold between worlds, retrieving and bearing new life towards home, as my name-story signals. As this being, I invite and facilitate people through passageways to life, creating and curating conversation and experiential spaces for encounters with new-old ways of being, knowing and doing, and holding space for community processes that may emerge us into new life.
My facilitation style is informed by life, training and practice in process oriented psychology, non-violent communication, Earth consciousness, indigenous Afrikan wisdom and healing practices, Afrikan spirituality, and culturally-rooted pan-Afrikan movement. I want to open critical conversations, reconnect individuals to their deeper selves, to each other in community, and to the Earth, and allow for greater fluidity and presence in self-created workshops, and in invited organisational and activist spaces.
My background in environmental studies, history, African studies, communications and movement building allows me to care about and be conversant with a range of fields.
I facilitate from the following principles: emergence, embodiment, healing, trust, restoring life, empathy, creativity, inter-activity, decoloniality, indigeneity, curiosity, ancestrality, regenerative justice, and the otherwise.
~~~ One of my projects in seed is Rejea, a year-long part-time regenerative life learning programme (Regenerative Life Learning programme concept note), to hold and facilitate people as they return to connections with themselves, community and the Earth and from this reconnection, design life projects and programmes in service to themselves, community and the Earth. I am reaching out to people who would like to collaborate in various ways. Let me know if you’d like to be in touch about the possibilities of bringing this seed to bear.
