The Fellowship is an experimental research program observing the dynamic relationships between creativity, connection, and collective transformation.
As part of a larger commitment to research, collaboration, and supporting creativity, the Fellowship brings together individuals thinking critically and willing to prioritize + commit to their own healing in order to meaningfully engage the collective. The program is a platform for exploration of the vast importance of our innate creative energy as a tool for inquiry and healing. How does this internal work reflect externally? How does that feed back into humanity as a whole, in turn nourishing the individual? What discomforts do we need to face in order to consistently respond and creatively act toward a world we want to exist?
The program operates under the hypothesis that :: Radical self-inquiry is a means of taking responsibility for ourselves >> Taking responsibility for ourselves leads to deep healing and transformation >> Given space to transform, our essential human capacity for creative expression, health, and connection can reach its highest potential.
By accepting Fellowship, members actively engage with themselves and each other through a specifically proposed project, for (9) months. The program is intended to support individuals who wish to examine their relationship with creative energy, and engage others in this process as well. Therefore, the program has no monetary cost, but is in exchange for participation, documentation & public discussion of projects. Each Fellow receives (14) individual remote sessions, (6) project matrix sessions, (1) remote group call per month, and (2) retreat weekends at Succurro. Sessions are for individual work, while group gatherings encourage critical dialogue in personal and collective findings. The program culminates in a public event at Succurro during the summer months that encapsulates and shares the experience as a cohort. Together, we are best able to express the transformative effects of truly caring for ourselves, and being fully present with others, as we lovingly listen, critically discuss, and creatively act on what blocks us individually and collectively from prioritizing our humanity on a transpersonal level.
