Healing Solidarity is a project I initiated that invites people in and around international 'development' and 'aid' spaces to gather around the work of healing the sector both from injustice in our practice and the working practices that overwhelm and exhaust us. The project currently runs an annual online conference and the Healing Solidarity Collective, an online space for connecting and sharing. Find the website here and join the Collective here.
We have a tendency to ignore our shadows and deny the more difficult parts of ourselves & our organisations but in exploring them I believe we can find gold. I offer coaching that helps change makers explore the explore the shadows so that they can move through stuck places in their lives and work. Learn More about the Coaching I offer.
In a sector full of questions about purpose and approach and facing the reality of racism, sexism and abuse, I write and speak about viable alternatives specific to the development and change making sectors. I also deliberately practice speaking about things that we often don't talk about as part of my activism. I share writing about this with my email list on a regular basis. Read my writing (or commission me to write for you) and Listen to me speak (or hire me for your event).
You can also hear me on the Change Making Women, the podcast I co-host with Ziada Abeid my friend and colleagues based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
On the show we talk to women what motivates and challenges them and how they take care of themselves while trying to make the world a better place.
