Dear generative somatics (gs) community,
In social and environmental justice movements, there is a significant call for gs programs that offer embodied transformation and leadership development, trauma-healing and resilience-building. In an effort to be responsive to this, an amazing Strategy Team of gs teachers, partners and staff met for over 18 months. We set out to ensure that as gs grows, our contribution becomes even more powerful and precise.
We are thrilled to share what we came up with -- our 2018-2020 Strategic Priorities
(here's a Strategic Priorities
and a video with more information)!
In these times, we're facing an escalation of white supremacist forces and an intensified crisis that is ecological, political and economic. Grave threats are targeting Black people, immigrants, indigenous folks, Muslims, Arabs, and our environment. In response, resistance movements are continuing to build powerful strategies to defend our communities and forward liberatory change.
Here at gs, we are committed and well-positioned to make a meaningful contribution.
Today, we're inviting you to learn about where we are headed.
Thank you for all the ways you contribute to gs and make this work possible!
Stay tuned - we'll be sending out more details about our Strategic Priorities over the course of September.
With hope and commitment,
Chris, Staci and the entire gs Strategy Team
- a community fundraising effort that will take place over the course of September - raising
$30K in 30 days
to support gs to fully implement our 2018-2020 Strategic Priorities!
We're holding a Happy Hour event to celebrate the launch of our Strategic Priorities and cultivate some much needed resilience in these times. In Oakland, CA on
Wednesday October 11th @ 6-8pm.
(Not on FB? All good,
to let us know you plan to come!)
