Embodied is an experiential study group that meets weekly to explore what it means to be integrated, whole, and fully present as beings. We use tai chi chuan, qi gong, hatha yoga, pranayama and meditation to gain a better understanding our bodies, minds, spirits, and their connections.
Experience art and cultural products that inspire, educate, and arouse. In partnership with other creatives, cultural workers, and artists, we create art and cultural work that engages the mind, body, and spirit. Our focus is in artistic work that explores the intersections of sex/intimacy/pleasure and Spirit/sacredness/ritual. Projects have included: Waterborne Rebel, a visual art exhibition by Charly J. Dominguez and My Brother’s a Keeper, a play by our founder, Dr. Herukhuti.

AFROCENTRIC DECOLONIAL ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT
Institutions and groups struggle with creating diversity, equity, inclusivity, and belonging (DEIB) because they do not address root causes (i.e., the role of settler-colonialism, imperialism, white supremacy, capitalist, and cisheteropatriarchy in how they are organized and operate) rather than symptoms. That’s why over 40 years of DEIB consulting by internal and external DEIB professionals has had little to no impact on organizational culture, policies, and practices in any industry.
We support our clients by addressing root causes of their DEIB challenges using indigenous wisdom traditions from Africa and its Diaspora, arts-based methods, organization development methodologies, and decolonizing/indigenizing practices. Our approach is relational and invests in long-term commitments with our clients to transform and not merely reform them.
