Liberation Spring empowers and motivates me through my process of unlearning and learning. I am consistently inspired by the work of my peers and mentor, who move with humility and grounded intentionality. I appreciate the value of intellectual knowledge as well as the somatic, the spiritual, the emotional knowledge that comes from our lived experiences, knowledge that is not found in books or technology, but in our bodies and ancestral roots. The education I’m receiving from Liberation Spring is absolutely foundational in my work as an artist and activist, and for me this is a lifelong commitment. Now more than ever we need communities like this to thrive.
