A Training in Lateral Liberation

With Kim Haxton

August 25 - 30, 2023

We are living in a time of high contrast. Collectively we sit on the verge of creation and destruction.

Challenges to planetary well-being have never been more evident and creating opportunities for positive, actionable change has never been more vital.

Join me as we explore Indigenous concepts of land, place and decolonization.

This program will examine decolonial practices (language, art, economics and gender) combined with embodied knowledge of Indigenous peoples, learning the ways that centering this knowledge can rupture the politics of what is considered valid “knowing.”

This program is intended to equip you with the right tools for moving with gentle fearlessness and fierceness, holding the paradox in our lives, building connections with ourselves, the natural world and each other.

Through collaboration and group process in conflict resolution, experiential activities (singing, dancing, storytelling, connecting to nature, laughter, sharing meals and connecting to nature), participants will leave with a clearer sense of purpose, capacity and connection to these relationships to liberate the invisible beliefs and biases that separate us from being able to make structural shifts in de-centering the dominant paradigm to healthy living.

Join us on the beautiful territories of the Klahoose in August. Together we will learn to laterally liberate consciousness.


A detailed schedule will be available 1-2 weeks in advance of the program. View sample schedule here.
