When do you feel connected to something greater than yourself?
"When I lose myself to a deep belly laugh.
When nature finds me in the middle of the city.
Seeing myself in others and finding space for our wholeness."
“Íssa is an experienced facilitator who brings a deep analysis of justice and racial equity to her work. She is thoughtful and intentional with the experiences she creates. Íssa has helped me realize my own implicit biases and internalized racism and has fostered a relationship where we can have meaningful dialog. I feel lucky to have crossed paths with her.”
