Paul Bryant Hudson

My work is fueled by the belief that the liberation of oppressed people deserves to exist independently of the transformation of their oppressors. This core belief is the foundation of my thinking around the importance of wealth/power redistribution and reparations.

Peejo Sehr

I am fueled by witnessing the soul show up in the facilitation process. ​I am fueled by witnessing the eternal that shows up in breath, in silence, in movement. ​I am fueled by love and bearing witness.

Becca Bartholomew

The future of our planet and the power of interpersonal connection fuel my work--as does a commitment to social justice. Our survival and ability to thrive as a species necessitates recognition of our interconnection and of each other’s humanity. 

Farron Harvey

I want to work with people to help them realize how beautiful and gifted they are, that they have the ability to change the world. I want to be able to co-create the space that allows for transformation as well as endless possibilities and in order for that to happen it has to start with me.​

Caprice Taylor Mendez

I strive to support the co-existence of compassion, self-care and movement towards greater social justice.

Slate Ballard

The future of our planet and the power of interpersonal connection fuel my work--as does a commitment to social justice. Our survival and ability to thrive as a species necessitates recognition of our interconnection and of each other’s humanity. 

Elizabeth Nearing

What fuels me is the possibility that unfolds from cultivating belonging; the idea that radical joy and imagination can help us co-createa better world for ourselves, our ancestors, and generations to come.

Deloris Vaughn

At my core, I know my purpose on this planet is to teach, counsel, mentor and lead by example.

Eric Rey

I learned early on in my life and career that I am deeply moved and drawn to the immense transformational healing power of human connection. I have always been and continue to be fascinated by the various ways in which our growth as humans is intertwined with one another.
