Writing Retreats & Contemplative Workshops
Integrating my training in psychology, feminist social theory, and contemplative-somatic practices, I teach workshops and writing retreats on such topics as:
Creativity as a Renewable Source of Pleasure
Somatic Reading and Writing Practices
Self-Care, Nondualism and Expanding Our Sensorium
The ToolKit of Drafting vs. The ToolKit of Editing
Understanding Positionality and Intersectionality: Why Ethical Writing Means
Wrestling with Your Position in a Larger Social Matrix
Creativity as Feminist Epistemology
Continuing Education for Clinicians & Teachers
Critical Social Theory Classes: Teaching and Consulting for Mental Health Clinicians
I offer a 1:1 consulting or group training in critical social theory for current practitioners in the field of mental health. The curriculum is useful for both psychoanalysts and therapists with interest in studying the material-psychic intersections of race/gender/class/sexuality/colonialism.
Feminist Ethnic Studies Classes: Teaching and Consulting for Teachers and Administrators
I work 1:1 or in small groups with teachers who want to develop their pedagogy and curriculum to incorporate more analysis of gender, race, sexuality, class, dis/ability, and western colonialism into their classrooms. The training introduces teachers to important feminist ethnic studies texts, as well as provides emotional, intellectual, and pedagogical support. I recommend teachers sign up in groups of 3 and meeting twice monthly for Skype consultation sessions. In between our online consulting sessions, weakly readings and recorded lectures are assigned.
