Workshops

My workshops are open ended and intended to be exploratory spaces. Although they are all rooted in systems thinking and a commitment to understanding the world historically, they do not have any intended intellectual outcome. Rather, the goal of them is to expose participants to new ways of thinking. As a facilitator, I open with a series of questions and exercises related to the workshop theme, but after that we build on who and what is in the room as it relates to the theme. All workshops close with exercises designed to map out actions that can be taken by participants that build on the collective understanding we have just created. Learn more here

Trainings

My trainings are also rooted in systems thinking and a commitment to understanding the world historically but are far more structured than workshops. Rooted in my commitment to popular education, trainings utilize the knowledge and experience of participants and pushes it forward by putting it in conversation with a planned curriculum. All trainings result in participants' development of particular skills, learning specific knowledge, and developing new frameworks for thinking about the world and themselves. Learn more here.
