A program dedicated to supporting young people to steep in the possibilities of their path, envision the power of their own lives, and engage in meaningful conversations around personal, cultural, and ecological, regeneration.
Inspired by the work of the Global Youth Peace Summit, ReGeneration Rising is a diverse program that ranges from virtual course offerings to in-person nature based immersions focused on healing, personal growth, cultural exchange, and embodied leadership.
Together with seasoned mentors, ReGeneration Rising explores the questions Who am I? What makes me come fully alive? What are my deepest needs, desires and dreams? What story do I choose to inhabit? How do I stand in my own truth and stay connected to important others? What are my gifts? Who is my community? How can I best contribute to a more joyful, just and meaningful world? We engage conversations and practices to cultivate our capacity to make a difference, deepen our resilience and inquire into what it means to be heart-centered leaders in a time in great need of our gifts.
ReGeneration Rising is a place for young adults to inquire within themselves, explore what is most alive, and gain the tactile skills and support necessary to move through the world with more ease courage, and purpose.
A 6-month virtual journey of exploration and connection.

FIDEL T. RODRIGUEZ
Kesha Fikes is a social praxis-centered somatic therapist and an independent scholar whose work is shaped by 25 years of engaged theorization on race, class, gender, citizenship, migration, and diasporization. Her teaching and therapeutic work on 'somatic extimacy' (somaticextimacy.org) - for which she has a forthcoming book - trouble how normative expressions of intimacy violently racialize communication and connection in seemingly ordinary ways. Through attuned sensorial and verbal connection, Kesha facilitates careful engagement with somatic expressions that communicate silenced, unvoiced, and unmet needs that reflect current, intergenerational, and historically unintegrated stresses.
