Join us for guided practices to experience the feeling of Strange Fruit: World-Building w/ South Africa, an immersion taking place March 2024. This is an embodied somatic journey that will begin our preparations for international travel and hopefully bring clarity to folks exploring if Strange Fruit is in alignment for them at this time.

Analise Samantha Delphine

I'm the founder of Common Healing, a participatory world-building studio producing immersive and inspiring experiences that raise cooperative consciousness.

In curating pop-ups, retreats, and international tours, I seek to cultivate an interconnected web of sustenance that transcends national borders and through which resources can move.

My work guiding groups of farmers and artists across the northeast United States in the development of their cooperative businesses inspires my curatorial practice.

I’ve inherited a legacy of storytelling and cultural organizing. The practices of filmmaking and experience production open up portals of memory and future-making for me.

At Common Healing, we are moving at the speed of trust and with the seasons. We commit to mutual reciprocity as we embody the future of our dreams now.
