Movement Pathways

Strengthening Relational Tissue Within and Between Movements

We are at a decisive moment in human history. Unbridled greed and consumption of the earth’s natural resources, fueled by conquest and interlocking systems of oppression have contributed to cascading social, economic and environmental crises. Without sustainable and regenerative alternatives to the global order, we are headed for civilizational collapse. 

While this moment requires urgent action, it also calls for deep reflection and new ways of living and being together.  

A truly regenerative transformation requires we develop new ways of being in relationship with each other. While we believe we need mass political and legislative change, we also need to build regenerative cultures. 

Dominant cultural practices of exploitation, extractivisin, human supremacy and separation from earth and nature have shaped our minds, bodies, institutions and social practices. Without consciously crafting new cultures, we are likely to continue to reproduce these systems within our political movements, even in the name of justice. 

The invitation to join us in building regenerative cultures is an invitation to co-create the world in which we want to live.

Embodied Equity, Justice and Leadership Institute

This Institute is designed to give teams the tools you need to jump start or deepen truly transformative and sustainable equity and justice work within their movements at an accessible cost. Movement teams will:

    • conduct a compassionate systems assessment of their movement and receive a summary of key areas of learning and potentials for growth;
    • attend a two-day intensive training and learn the core theory and practice of our CourageRISE model;
    • participate in a five-week capacity-building seminar and gain tools to support both personal and systems change; and
    • receive a private coaching session with their small team to explore next steps.

Radical Communion

Our core Courage course lays the foundation to prepare us to meet on common ground.

Organized in parallel race-based affinity tracks, the program takes participants through a ten-week journey of the CourageRISE model. The training helps us heal from the effects of trauma and oppression and readies us to truly encounter one another in meaningful solidarity. 

Courageous Leaders

Our Courageous Leaders Program is designed for folks who are called upon to tend to the relational health of their communities and organziations. We know the work of tending to the relational tissue of our movements is often invisibilized, or seen less urgent than political wins. We are here to affirm the work of our movement healers and tenders, and provide facilitators with a robust framework and compelling relational tools that foster confidence and competence in this work.

We have partnered with numerous universities, school districts, human rights organizations, trauma clinics, healthcare centers, sustainability think-tanks, spiritual organizations and political movements, and are committed to working with all communities committed to justice.

Request Tailored Consultations

We offer tailored, in-depth consultations to organizations that share our vision for a more just world and are committed to long-term change.

Please be in touch if you would like to request tailored service.
