Writings & Audio
Turning Towards Each Other: A Conflict Workbook
Turning Towards Each Other is a workbook on conflict for people working to change the world together which I co-authored with Jovida Ross. The booklet gathers and adapts tools we have used to help us navigate conflict while moving towards transformative change in groups. We wrote Turning Towards Each Other because we needed these tools ourselves and because we believe deeply in people’s transformative capacity to access our wholeness and create new worlds based in love.
Syrian Sistars Podcast
Syrian Sistars is a podcast I co-host with my gemini sibling. We share visions of the transformed future and how to get there. We interpret dreams, share poetry, and share ancestral spiritual practices and knowledge with the hopes that you will too.
