I am a feminist ethnic studies scholar, writing doula, and consultant who partners with individuals and organizations to facilitate deep and transformative learning.
I'm also an online course creator. My teachings invite all genders to experience the revolutionary contributions of feminist foremothers.
My pedagogy is informed by extensive research in trauma studies. In all my courses, I offer somatic writing exercises that foster contemplative feminist learning.
Most people have not had the chance
to be taught the writings of feminist foremothers.
But this knowledge is essential for creating a better world—a more engaged past, a renewed present, and a transformed future that offers healing, justice,
and sustainable life on earth.
The Emotional Self-Defense Course combines training in somatic awareness and trauma with the feminist analysis we need to name the systems shaping our lives. The online, self-guided, and writing-based course was released on 1/30 to people in 7 countries.
When we study feminist ways of knowing, we find our voice and connect back to our body's knowledge. We listen with more skill to the stories of others, understanding intersections and connections.
We move from naming the symptoms of a problem to theorizing (and feeling into) the deeper systems.
And we learn to trust our creativity, recognizing we are empowered—collectively— to rewrite the course of history.
