The Embodied Leadership Project is an artistic company that offers a body-centered mindfulness, inclusion and wellness model

An approach to inclusion and community wellness that incorporates the body’s intelligence can be very powerful. Our curriculum supports the body, mind and emotions holistically. In doing so, we create safe and caring environments to learn about practices of mindfulness and communication which significantly influence individual well-being and interpersonal relationships. We work in community organizations, schools and higher education.


We have built a curriculum that uses story, performance and workshops to bring people of all races, genders and identities together into experiences of connection and belonging. What we are doing is deeply important to us and we see it as service work to uplift our planet.

We have worked hard to create an organization model that counters capitalism. Our entire model is based on sharing. We share stories and practices, we share space, we share skills, and we (including us!) also share a small (or large) amount of our money each month to keep the project alive and free. Free to move towards a world filled with bodies and minds that are empowered, cared for, and filled with joy, connection, and meaning. Becoming a patron is about giving what is actually possible and comfortable for you, whether that is three dollars a month or three hundred.

We hope you will join us in move this project forward together!

This video-based education platform uses story and interviews with leaders in the field of emotional and embodied intelligence to share about the process of moving from isolation to emotionally connected relationships. This platform operates on a sliding fee monthly donation and helps to fund the work that we do.

It is our mission to use mindfulness, storytelling, yoga and dance to invite community members to authentically express, deeply listen, build languages of belonging and embody the wisdom and power of the African Diasporic community circle.

We envision a world where communication is embodied, emotionally intelligent and connective.

Not only does every being deserve access to education that enriches their ability to have supportive, meaningful and diverse connections to others, this type of education makes us all better leaders and allies. We believe that more than ever, now is a time when we need connected leadership. Stories are an engaging and accessible way for each of us to deepen our own understanding of what is possible. We are always adding new stories to our online platform. By watching, engaging and learning from these stories, you will both help fund our research and curriculum development and build community with our team, our collaborators and others on the platform.

We are a community funded program

Goals
$260 of $3,000 per month
We are launching a community building effort to bring our Patreon page to $3,000 by June 1st, 2019.

We believe that now, more than ever, is a time when the earth needs connected leadership and community. We want to expand our project to reach more people.




Our ultimate vision includes: 

Establishing and maintaining our patron base (through Patreon.com) at a minimum of $6,000 a month. This amount covers company salaries which pay for:
facilitating research, designing & expanding curriculum, presentation development, company administration and event coordination.

Any patron amount above $6,000 a month will be applied towards: travel costs, paying company collaborators, project costs and materials.

To further grow our resources through connecting with individual donors/people of wealth who are interested in giving tax-deductible donations to this project.

To apply for grants to cover project costs and materials
