NSC Harmony Project: Restoring Relationship, Healing Community

The Harmony Project workshops and nature immersion retreats support personal healing work for rematriation, reclamation, and re-storying of individual, ancestral/family, and collective experiences. We provide an introductory class and a 4-week, heart journeywork course to assist in restoring relationship/community and the renewal of humanity. The course offers heart-centered, safe space to unpack beliefs (including those passed down or transferred via social interactions). The integrative classes help to heal conscious/unconscious emotional pain and trauma (i.e., personal, transgenerational, cultural, historical +), improve health and wellbeing, manage chronic health conditions, strengthen immunity, and optimize quality of life. Individual work in supportive community nourishes the heart-soul, deepens inner relationship, and cultivates altruistic, reciprocal relationships with others. Metrics with participant surveys evaluate program efficacy and relationship/community development.

The Living Sanctuary IC (in development) will provide assistance/resources for healing from oppression and trauma as well as increasing economic/healthy housing/food security and restoring land-community relationship. This is the first of several nature-relational projects to establish BIPOC-supportive, green-sustainable/carbon neutral/regenerative intentional community assisted by collaborative partnerships. Residents will receive support to develop an empowering, eco-based vision/mission that is aligned with personal authenticity/purpose, clarify strengths/needs, and access effective strategies/tools for optimizing quality of life (includes a social ecopreneurship startup, hybrid co-operative, and incubator). This healing community will promote trauma recovery and increase altruistic presence/resources for underserved, disadvantage, and BIPOC people while contributing to the restoration of the planet. Metrics and pre-/post-participant surveys will assess program efficacy.
