The Kindred Collective is a network of grassroots energy, body and earth based healers and medical practitioners seeking to create mechanisms for wellness and safety that respond, intervene and transform conditions of generational trauma and violence in our communities and movements.
The Kindred Collective’s Organizational Mission is to intervene, interrupt and transform generational trauma and violence in our southern communities and movements. We will do this by honoring and resourcing integrative healing traditions and practices as tools for our collective resiliency and survival. We are a collective of anti-oppression grassroots healers based in the traditions and practices of energy, body, earth based traditions, and birth workers grassroots medical practitioners, social workers, nurses, counselors, cultural workers and organizers who are based in the South.
The Scope of Kindred’s Work: Kindred is building a collaboration of southern healers and organizers who stand ready to respond to trauma through collective models that sustain our communities, and our movements in order to prevent isolation, early burn out, and emotional, physical, or spiritual deprivation.
We know that to build movements, we must work together to build healthy spaces, and embed in our organizing strategies health, and healing work to sustain ourselves and our movements.
We are developing synergies of activism, organizing and healing across generations and cultures, to promote a deeper commitment to building a better world, and generating grassroots solutions to the issues we face. We want to share information, resources, strategies, and commitments to move our health, and healing practices in a process that deepens and broadens the movement building work to which we are all committed.
Thank you for your interest in helping to create this vital space for strengthening our movements as we seek to build, integrate, and transform models for health and healing work inside of our social justice movements and communities for our emotional, physical, spiritual, and environmental well being.
