We are kicking off the new year with a radical kind of DETOX.
To detox is not to deprive oneself of our basic and essential needs. It is to confront how we’ve been shaped by a culture of perfectionism, scarcity, individualism and supremacy so that we can return to wholeness and discover what is possible for us individually and collectively. To detox is to recover the parts of us that have been lost to the project of productivity and progress so that we can heal towards the future that we all deserve.
Join us for a FREE weeklong Detox Challenge to kick off 2023 with in practice and precision. We'll be joined by special guests to help us unpack and unlearn the stories that are holding us back from individual and collective thriving.
Each day you’ll receive a short practice to support your journey of detox and unlearning. In the afternoon we’ll gather with creative activists and change agents for courageous conversations about how to meet this moment and create the conditions for transformation and possibility.
DAILY DETOX PRACTICE
Each morning you’ll receive a brief detox practice to support your journey of unlearning toxic patterns and opening up to possibility.
Each afternoon we will gather LIVE with community creatives, activists, authors and disruptors to explore the practice of detox and recovery.
In addition, you’ll have access to a community forum to share resources, stories, innovation and mutual support.
