consensual culture is a community collective and relational healing framework that is rooted in a decolonial and liberatory practice of body-based trauma resolution.
- What would emerge if marginalized humans knew how to embody receptivity of what we need shamelessly?
- What would happen if bodies of color upheld their energetic sovereignty in all spaces they existed within?
- What would change if our culture celebrated and uplifted the integrity of our lived experiences, needs, and desires?
Our theory of change is one that centers the lived experiences, healing, community care and liberation of QTBIPOC women and femmes of color.
We move towards belonging and the embodiment of our core values of interdependence, inter-sovereignty, integrity, co-creation and compassion as a way of being that directly resists the oppression of our bodies. Because we live in a culture that uses systems and strategies that disembody and dehumanize bodies of color and those with marginalized identities, we must re-humanize ourselves by knowing how to be in relationship with our bodies.
Dynamics of power over show up in our relationships with one another, therefore, what are the relational and interpersonal conditions required for a woman or femme of color to feel safe enough to take up space with her voice, her essence, her feelings and her desires, in a world where conditions of dominant culture continue to perpetuate harm through systems of oppression?
Our intergenerational, systemic and relational trauma lives in our bodies. Help us co-create safe-enough spaces for women, femmes and non-binary people of color to learn about unpack our trauma, practice healing and create ecosystems of care within ourselves and each other.
