Do you see me? Do you hear me? Do I matter? These questions and their answers live at the heart of the conflicts we are currently navigating in an effort to create a society and a world that we all feel at home in, and a society and a world that works for all. I've come to learn that it's not until we're willing to meet these conflicts with awareness, openness, curiosity, discernment, honesty, and compassionate presence that we are truly able to make progress. Inquiry is sparked, clarity and creative solutions emerge, and progress is made. During this 2-hour open conversation and exploration, we will engage in an open, raw, and brave dialogue on racism, identity, representation, and reconciliation within ourselves, the queer community, and the world. This exploration will include questions like "What is your relationship to this?" and "How might we grow in our support of a more inclusive community and society?" Guests will be welcomed, but not required, to answer questions, and share perceptions and experiences around race/racism, identity, representation, and reconciliation. While this conversation may only be a small step in the direction of progress; the intention is to inspire discussion, reflection, action and progression within the space, and our individual and collectives spheres of influence.
7+ years ago, this former PR-guy and personal stylist made the inspired leap into life coaching, facilitating, speaking, writing, and sharing way too much of my life on social media full-time. Now, I get to do sh*t like refer to myself in third person, speak and entertain for 60 minutes straight without interruption, and help the passionless and multi-passionate muster up the cojones, clarity and confidence to be more bad ass, and get paid to do what they can’t not do. This is the work I can’t not do. Turns out it doesn’t really feel like work when you love it.
