We are all navigating translating our work and our offerings to what was once a dynamic in-person setting. Some of that we are able to translate, some of it we simply cannot. These are requests and guidelines to help us create a safe and dynamic healing and educational space:
All Online Classes will be conducted via Zoom or I am trying to get an encrypted platform together for more privacy. To respect privacy and create a real-time intimate experience and carry on a traditional/indigenous way of knowledge-sharing, no classes will be recorded. There will be handouts given and you can always ask your fellow classmates to exchange notes if needed.
If possible please create a sacred space for yourself. I know we are all in the different spectrum of sharing home space with others (or not)- so do what you can to have a space for this time free from distraction. How can you create sacred space for yourself at home/where you are sheltering?
Much of my work and teaching manner is ritual-based and so while this looks very different from what’s possible online, I ask that we hold that together. How would you enter a ritual?
Much of what I will be sharing and the experience I am trying to hold for all of us has a political, historical and spiritual nature. This can be heavy and deep so I ask you to also do what you need to take care of yourself during this time. (During the class feel free to excuse yourself to use the bathroom when you need to, drink some water, have some snacks near by, etc.) I have also timed breaks into the schedule so there will be some spaciousness.
If there are any equity or access issues/questions- please contact me directly (child care, can't turn on video setting for some reason, etc.) firstname.lastname@example.org
