Embodied Leadership for Funders & Donors

In spring 2022, we will be running eight week introductory embodied leadership program for leaders in the funding world who are committed to redistributing wealth to social and climate justice movements, BIPOC communities, and poor and working class communities. ELFD will support participants to vision new possibilities, align actions with vision, and transform toward our longings for freedom and liberation.

More about this practice space 

A central component of any change process – personal change or organizational change – is the concept of practice. New intentional practices are those that we choose to do in order to transform the way we show up in the world.

We transform through embodying new practices over time. Through new practices we increase choice and alignment with our values. As we change default practices and engage in new intentional practices the internal terrain of who we are is changed.

Research shows that 300 repetitions produces muscle memory (the ability to purposefully take a new action), and that 3000 repetitions creates embodiment (being able to take this new action automatically, even under pressure).

It is much easier to stay in practice within community. We hope you will join us every day or once in a while – whatever works for you. This practice space will be led by majority BIPOC gs practitioners and teachers.

This practice space is free of charge. We ask that participants please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a monthly donor to support this space to be sustainable and accessible.

We’re in an ongoing commitment to embodying disability justice (DJ) in our theory and practice. gs has shifted key pieces of our coursework, including language and practice, and we continue to be disability justice learners. Thank you in advance for partnering with us as we continue to transform and deepen our DJ embodiment.

In this daily practice space, there will be closed-captioning. We will share adaptations for somatic practices to meet the needs of a wide range of bodies. Please contact us with questions or to discuss your access needs: programs@generativesomatics.org.
