Root to Rise!

We want to train young wom*n to be leaders in their communities, and to have the skills, wisdom, heart and embodied confidence to critically and creatively think about how to transform the world into a more just, equitable, beautiful and healthy place for everyone. 

Root to Rise must be radically accessible! 

We are looking to have 18 young wom*n, and are expecting that far less than half of them will be able to pay full tuition.  Full cost is approx. $1000 per participant, including organic, home-cooked food, housing and amazing facilitators and guest teachers.  

We all know there is an enormous wealth gap in our society and that the fault lines are deeply racialized.  To create the deep, loving transformation we all seek, we need to empower young leaders from structurally underresourced communities.  So, we need your help to fund an incredible program for ALL to participate in.  We want to support young wom•n to heal, grow and lead us into the future!
