We are spiritually and morally-led. Some spaces we hold are exclusively for people of African descent. Some spaces are multicultural. We strive to make our offers economically equitable and sustainable. We reject patriarchy, heteronormativity and domination. We embrace fluidity and spaciousness. We believe in liberated brace space. We believe everyone has a role in the future. We seek to navigate power in all its nuance and complexity

Our collaboration begins with poetry and is centered in our individual desires to dig into the depths of our experiences. We are rooted in creating remembered and reimagined systems of sustainability, wellness, and hope for our people. In order to shape a freedom world, we must first attune and take witness to our individual freedom practices. Together, we wish to bring these ideas, desires, and lessons to our community.
Guiding guilds and designing experiences for communing towards new world possibilities. Developing and maintaining the infrastructure to hold mindful stewardship of collective resources as an interconnected web of sustenance. Transforming a mountain sanctuary in the Hudson Valley into a World-Building place. Nomadic tendencies and Half a heart in London. Dancing into the realm of film as veneration and divination.
Bodypoet, movement architect, and educator working with and through various interdisciplinary forms of dance, drawing, film, photography, and sound. New Orleans, VA, London, and LA hold my heart.
