The flourishing of all genders into feminist freedom.
The un-doing of heteropatriarchy, cisgender supremacy, and transphobia.
A deep reckoning with Indigenous rights, decolonization, and the earth.
Spirituality grounded in joy, abundance, and justice.
The unleashing of ancient economies of interconnection and interdependence.
They were committed to these interconnected struggles and to birthing transformations.
They knew the personal was always political—and that change happens at every scale, interlinked.
Imagine when more leaders are trained in this feminist inheritance of knowledge?
Imagine our future if we begin to learn their sustaining legacy of coalitions and interlinked liberation?
Our pedagogy integrates academic rigor with decolonial trauma-informed methods, spiritual and contemplative practices, intergenerational healing work, a focus on imagination, and mind-body-spirit reconnection.
Students experience nuanced curriculum to name and grieve systems of power, violence, and trauma, while gaining analysis and practices to unfurl their creative power to re-make the world.
These methods of feminist learning expand conversations on identity and help us practice building coalitions at the intersections. Today's social justice language, which helps us navigate justice and injustice, can at times also lock us into simplistic and binary understandings of ourselves and the world, isolating us and fragmenting our social movements.
We guide approaches to understanding identity and history from the much more expansive, layered methods of feminist foremothers—and from across vibrant and diverse traditions. The result is a more rigorous analysis of systems of oppression, as well as more tools for personal and collective change.
