What is possible in our post-pandemic world? We find ourselves in a unique and uncertain time. In this flux, there are significant challenges, but also opportunities to dismantle some major bulls*!t and create a more just and joyful world. So what's the fundamental building block for any new paradigm? The stories we tell. In this workshop, you will:
 

  • - Recognize the stories that shape our world, examine your personal stories, and BREAK UP with the ones that no longer support you (even though we can't evict them from the planet just yet)

  • - Powerfully create new stories through embodied meditation, creative visioning, and real world experiments

  • - Learn ways of being with uncertainty and crisis by tapping into your own inner resources

  • - Powerfully and intentionally create contexts that support you and others in day-to-day life

Timeline
 

Over the course of ten weeks, there are four creative menus of explorations and five optional community phone calls to share insights and experiments. Experiment a little or a lot over the course, going at your own pace. Community calls are reflective and spacious without any cross-talk or advice. They honor and support you exploring your own journey. Partnering within the cohort is available if you would like more dialogue along the way. You may also schedule individual coaching sessions for an additional fee to support your journey.

.

Enrollment is now open for the second round that will run from August 30th to October 25th with optional community calls from 4:00 - 5:30pm EST on 8/30, 9/13, 9/27, 10/11, and 10/25. If you can join for only a portion of a community call but want to hear the rest, a recording will be sent to you afterwards. 

Enrollment + Levels of Participation

 

Course fee is on a sliding scale of $400 - $800. If you cannot afford the full fee, a limited number of financial scholarships are available. If you are able to pay more to fund someone who cannot afford it, please do. Payment can be made via Venmo (julieannotis) or Zelle (julieann@samanaconsulting.com). Many participants take the course multiple times, adding layers and lenses. After completing your first cohort, you are invited to join the subsequent rounds for half the cost of what you paid for the first round, or more if you would like to fund someone with financial need. As you take the course again, you'll be invited to add depth and breadth to your experimentation:

Beginning Experimenters (required for first-time participants)
Exploring somatic, creative, and meditative practices to uproot old paradigms and till the soil for new ones.

 

Experienced Experimenters
Adding a lens of your choosing to the work, such as "racial justice," "wealth equity," "social media/virtual spaces," "relationship with nature," "fuck the patriarchy," "pleasureful social justice," etc.
You'll have access to additional menu items that relate to your lens.


Community Experimenters
Using your ongoing somatic, creative, and meditative practices, you will take your exploration out into your community or family with specific contexts you want to erode/dissolve or with ideas and visions you want to plant and grow. This continues your momentum of subtractive instead of additive action and attraction-based instead of promotion-based energy.

 

Creator Community


Wondering who the other explorers are on this journey? Like you, they are committed to:
 

  • - Benefiting our human community through their life’s work

  • - Expanding capacity for balance, peace, interdependence, and empowerment for themselves and others

  • - Creating a context of radical sufficiency; an experience of enough-ness; a world of “and,” not “either/or”

  • - Feeding a sustainable fire of positive change over multiple generations

  • - Supporting and being supported by a like-minded community
