“And then there is the butterfly, a most magical creature. The wings of the butterfly are already held inside the caterpillar, and as it breaks down its old self into goo, the wings emerge ready to go. That process is amazing and teaches me that as we change and transform, we already have everything we need already right inside of us. So my organizing and healing work becomes about building the cocoon that can hold the goo so that the wings can emerge.” – Micah Hobbes Frazier,
a Black queer mixed-gendered facilitator, somatic coach/healer, and magic-maker working out of the Bay Area
Friends, we are in the goo.
We gather this summer around the stories of the chrysalis, that gooey place where imagination catalyzes transformation. The wings for freedom and beauty to take flight are already within.
