Ecstatic facilitator, critical geographer, and meditation guide. Reclaiming radical joy ... 

Welcome! What you'll find on this site shares one root: a passion for radical wellbeing. I'm passionate about wellbeing that honors connections between mind, body, spirit, earth, and social justice.

Along with independent projects, I help organizations put radical wellbeing into practice as Owner & Facilitator of Get Rooted Consulting. Get Rooted also houses initiatives focused on food justice education (Food for Black Thought) and culturally-grounded meditation (RootWork). In related research, I study issues of race, place, and healing with an emphasis on Black resilience (African-American and Afro-Latinx). I'm interested in resilience from a broad perspective - social and environmental, emotional and spiritual. 

I bring an embodied approach. From my personal journey and from work with groups, I believe in the power of practices like meditation, ceremony, and breath work for transformation - personal and collective. These practices can help me/us dig deep. Heal stress. Create!  Sustain ourselves and our communities. 

This is ancestor work! My African-American and Xicana "roots" inspire me. I'm moved by Black feminism, indigenous knowledge, and other writings on this bookshelf. Plenty of time with nature keeps me grounded.
