Project Description

As my divine friend, Seven, says - there are no accidents.  It is no mistake that you happened on this campaign.  Welcome!

During this transitional time, our hearts are holding you. The heart of Cultural Fabric's mission is to support the thriving of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in businesses & communities.  We believe that when the most marginalized among us is healed, we will all be healed.

WHY: LET'S CREATE THE FUTURE

We're actually remembering our future right now!  The world most of us long to feel a part of is full of joy, playfulness, and a palpable sense of being whole.  We are already whole and we are valuable not for what we do, but just for being here.  For all of us, this sense of wholeness has been compromised by white supremacy and the resulting racism, but for BIPOC especially so.

The cohorts of the Healing Arts Institute (HEAL) are made up of people who care for other people - in community and in workplaces.  These are our front line workers and people in "helping professions."  HEAL takes participants through an immersive 8-week process to strengthen conscious, BIPOC-centered decolonization practices as they support others through their work. We are growing the cohorts fast now, because during this pandemic time the more leaders we reach, the healing can reach exponentially more people and positively influence inclusiveness in collective spaces.

HOW: JOIN US

Join us by donating to fund the current and future community cohorts of the Healing Arts Institute (HEAL).  Thanks to our pre-campaign and offline donors, we have already raised over $10,000 in 2020! Since Cohort 3 in the spring, we have awarded over 10 scholarships already!

The funds we raise will cover BIPOC tuition scholarships and BIPOC healer guest facilitators. As we support emerging leaders, we expose them to a community of BIPOC healers specializing in ancestral and complementary therapies.

Outside of monetary support, we also seek to build community with you! 

Join our 5-for-40 Journey to meditate for our individual & collective good. Share this campaign with your friends, family, and colleagues. There are so many ways to join us in co-creating this healing ecosystem.  See the FAQ section for more info.

About our founder

CONTACT ME FOR A VIRTUAL TEA

One of my favorite things to do during this pandemic time is to meet virtually over tea.  Questions about getting involved?  Email me: contact@culturalfab.com 

At heart, I'm a creative whose soul speaks the language of transformation and expansion.  This has taken many evolving forms over my lifetime, and all the forms build on each other to create this body-mind-spirit work.  I am a management professional turned entrepreneur, and simultaneous dance artist and educator, certified yoga teacher, facilitator, writer and mindfulness-based coach with no separation among these roles. The threads that hold them all together are the urge to create, the need to serve, and the desire to envision and support a world full of people who do good for the common good.
