2017 Events


Saturday, July 22, 2017  Relationship & Difference Day-long Workshop with Kaylynn Sullivan TwoTrees & Matt Kolan.  Radical reciprocity is an invitation to move beyond transaction as the fundamental basis for relationship.  It is a practice of exploring how our relationships can be mutually beneficial AND create conditions for all life to thrive.  This workshop will explore practices and protocols for engaging with multiple layers of difference; across identities, species, dimensions, cultures, ideologies and more, as we focus on a future that is centered around whole, healthy and reciprocal relationships.
