Work that moves the people! Throw some support their way! 😀
Here's an opportunity to "Fuel The Work". In the ongoing work of community building through deep dialogue & offering transformative community spaces, what matte...rs most is the change we see—people and institutions choosing to listen more, to think further, to value differently, to act courageously to create communities of possibility and hope. As Speaking Down Barriers accelerates into its fifth year, we ask that you make a generous contribution to fuel our work. We cannot do this without you.
Please give a tax-deductible gift today online via www.paypal.com/fundraiser/charity/1407902 or by mail to PO Box 7133, Spartanburg, SC 29304. We are grateful!
Peace great people! There are two months left in 2017 and the transformative & healing art is moving all around us! It has been a year full of pain, growth, beauty, & healing. Where is the transformation & healing art happening? Well, here are just a few things in motion to check out:
We are sorry to be so disconnected as of late, but we are definitely working! We are just tinkering in the lab with creatives of various mediums, getting excited about the magic that is happening!
The fight for #DACA, against discrimination towards transgender people, police brutality, climate change, floods, hurricanes...there is so much happening.
In need of places to heal, confront, & figure out your place in the work of social justice? Check out the work of Speaking Down... Barriers.
Back to the lab!

When you hear "Goddess Unleashed", what do you feel?
Founded by acclaimed artist and healer Monique "Fire" Walton, she believes it is her gift to bring peace and light to this community. Through sharing stories with other creatives on how she overcame and how they overcame will spread light and love in the darkest spaces.
"i am from a punch & a kiss" by Marlanda Dekine-Sapient Soul is getting out into the world! A #book of #poetry to shake us up, hold us, and call us to our #bestself! We are grateful to classes at USC Upstate, Christian Theological Seminary in Indiana, and Wofford College! All proceeds support more #transformative #art entering the world.
