Feminist. Writer. Bridge Builder.
I am a feminist scholar, consultant,
 and writer. I am also a trauma theorist and a mystic, with a degree in religion from Yale and a Ph.D. in Ethnic Studies. I am the creator of the The Emotional Self-Defense Course.
I'm Dr. Kimberly George.
My life's work has been one clear (but complicated!) task: to study, live, and teach the revolutionary truths of feminist history to people who might never step inside a Women's Studies graduate seminar.

I've done extensive research within the university (2 Ph.D programs, 3 M.A. programs). But since 2006, I have also redistributed my knowledge and collaborated outside academia's walls.
I live in NYC. I'm here to contribute the knowledge of how feminist foremothers changed history so we can rebuild this beloved city with more racial, gender, and economic justice as we mourn, rise, and strategize from Covid-19.

I offer online professional development training rooted in trauma-informed, rigorously researched, and spiritually sensitive feminist frameworks for cultural change. 

 

Partnering with experts and visionaries of all kinds, I've taught and collaborated with journalists, artists, doctors and nurses, mental health practitioners, writers,  spiritual leaders, and K-12 teachers.

Registration is open:

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 course is available for self-study or Spring Feminist (Doula) Cohorts.

 

Contact form for inquiries.

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 recognizing the deeper systems.

 

And we learn to trust our creativity, recognizing we are empowered—collectively— to rewrite the course of history.
