zee & I are going on the road.

First stop: the Pacific Northwest.

October 2019: Vancouver, British Columbia.

November 1-13, 2019: Washington 

November 14-30: Oregon.

In each territory we will dialogue with the land & its inhabitants.

This trip is an exploration for me, a dialogue with folks who are worried about the planet and our future.  A way to plant seeds of connection, and inspire local folks to start creating together.

As you can see below, I have useful workshops to offer, and powerful somatic coaching sessions to share, but you do not have to host a workshop or become a client to join me in this dialogue. As my schedule allows, I am happy to meet with you and talk about how the climate crisis is impacting you/your community. Or if you want to host an informal potluck or dinner for folks to discuss concerns and solutions, I will come.

The purpose of Somatics for Climate Resilience (S4CR) 1:1 Tune-ups and Skillshops is to support you/your community to align with the earth, center in your resilience & turn your visions for climate justice, climate adaptation & mutual aid community into reality.

Somatic tune-ups, and somatic trauma coaching can transform your relationship to the inner & outer obstacles that undermine creative responses to the climate crisis.

If you are vaguely interested in connecting with me in *any* way during my travels, or know folks who probably would want to connect, please let me know.

You do not have to have a specific plan or dates.

Just let me know if you might want me to visit, or if you would like to host me and zee or host a workshop, or if you want a somatic coaching session or sessions, and if you want to barter/trade or pay me for my services.  I will be working while I am on the road (seeing video clients), and do not need to be offering a workshop every where I go. (But I am willing.)

When I hear back from you, I will see how many folks in which areas are interested, and that will help me create an itinerary. I can also connect folks from the same area who might want to host a workshop but do not want to take that on alone.

Here is my tentative schedule:

October 1-30 in Vancouver/Vancouver Island,

November 1-13-ish in Seattle and Whidbey Island,

[possibly Vashon Island and/or Olympia in between]

November 14-24-ish in Portland,

November 25-ish making my way south, Eugene? Ashland? etc

arriving back in California December 1st.
