“The classroom remains the most radical space of possibility in the academy”
– bell hooks, Teaching to Transgress

I bring to my teaching and facilitation a tender care for each of my students and a desire to watch people step into their fullest selves. I believe that knowledge-sharing is a collective experience that is most powerful when each person’s brilliance is lifted up and honored. I love fostering community, and helping people to get to know parts of each other and themselves that they might not have discovered otherwise.

Dear Me: A Love Letter to Myself

Imagine this: The lights are dimmed. Maybe there’s a candle casting warm, quivering light. You’re wearing something that you feel gooooood in, and you have your favorite snacks in reach. You’re content and comfortable, and you know there’s only one person in the world that you want to be with right now: *you.* The words of adoration start to flow from you, and your love letter to yourself blooms to life.

Join us as we spend two delicious hours learning what we absolutely adore about ourselves, and how to love our whole selves. We will celebrate that self-love in the form of a love letter or love poem that we can cherish and read over and over again for years to come.

Ages: 18+ (Can be adjusted for different ages)
