Speaking | Virtual + On-the-Ground

Dr. Naya partners with groups and organizations as a speaker and ceremony facilitator. She helps individuals and organizations “get rooted” in self-care and in social justice. Grounded in ancestral and cultural healing, all speaking includes storytelling and drumming, meditative arts and ceremony. Naya believes "digging deep" can be radically joy-full without losing sight of historical trauma. She brings a queer-affirming (LGBTQAI+) and trauma-conscious approach to holding space. Virtual inquiries welcome. Partner | Bio | Past events | CV
