Anti-oppression from the inside out.

Turn off your phone. Put your out-of-office message on. Rest and reconnect with your body. This online retreat is a supportive structure to take time out from the go-go-go. Each session explores different ways of cultivating ease, pleasure, and creativity as pathways to playfully erode oppression.


One link will be sent out for the entire retreat so you can follow your appetite and decide as you go which ones you feel like attending. All times are EST.
