Justine (she/her) is a lover of birds and all things wild, a student of water, an activist, council carrier, and rites of passage guide-in-training. Her work focuses on supporting the emergence of regenerative cultures through community and nature-based practices. She is especially interested in addressing and healing from inherited historical systems of colonization, white supremacy, cisheteropatriarchy and global capitalism through integrated, holistic community practices, prayer and storytelling in ways that honor our diverse and complex histories and identities, and focus on relationship with and protection of the natural world. Justine has worked and studied community activism, water rights & pilgrimage, anti-racism, deep nature connection, nature-based rites of passage and council. She has trained with Weaving Earth Center for Relational Education, the School of Lost Borders, Tamera Healing Biotope 1, the Walking Water pilgrimage and works to support anti-racist praxis with Education for Racial Equity. She lives and offers practices and skills that strengthen our capacities to show up with open hearts and courageous bodies during these uncertain times on planet earth.
Justine will be co-teaching “Allyship and Reconciliation” with Kailea Frederick and “Wild Body: Wildlife tracking and Awareness Skills for Living in Right Relationship” with Lara Birchler.
