Join us for a six month immersive and emergent collective learning experience.

How do we navigate these times?

We are in a social, political, spiritual, and cultural moment of upheaval. As the collective work of liberation calls for us to lean deeper into our values of freedom, self determination and interdependence how do we fortify ourselves, our communities, and our workspaces for the present moment and the times to come?

It’s clear that we cannot continue to rely on the same tools, strategies and tactics that have brought us where we are and keeps us here. What would it look and feel like to bring the tools gifted to us by nature and the ancestors into our work?

What’s possible when we are connected?

Pathways to Liberation is a 6 month immersive and emergent collective learning experience designed to answer this question and more. Join seasoned freedom fighters, facilitators, leaders and movement builders from across the globe in responding to the call and going deep into what it means to truly be ready to propel and maintain liberation.


During our time together, we will discover what it means to replenish, to embed cultural and ancestral knowledge, somatic and embodiment practices into our work.

We will travel towards the self and the collective as a means of fulfillment, freedom, and survival.


Let’s tap into and deeply explore the many long lineages that we all come from whether its Indigenous ways of being and knowing, or Black feminist cultures of care and collectivity.

  • Is collective care a core value?
  • Do you believe that none of us are expendable or disposable?
  • Do you struggle with taking care of your body during these uncertain times?
  • Do you believe that it is our duty to fight like hell for each other and our ecosystems?
  • Are you looking for a community of practice that is embodied and justice focused?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then THIS is the program for you.

This course has been designed to provide resources, tools and a clear path forward for those that are already a part of liberatory work and practice in meaningful ways, those who have experienced or are on the brink of burn out, and those who understand that when it comes to the work of advancing social justice, there simply has to be something more.
