Practicing ProVOCAtive:

A bold, body-based approach to raising your (actual) voice for justice

 You’re probably tired of playing nice.

You’re probably aware not everyone’s going to like all the things you want to express in the name of justice

You know speaking up aint always pretty, but how often do you actually practice….with your actual voice?

Time to roll up your sleeves, dive into the muck and ask yourself:

When it’s your moment to speak big truth, will you have the courage?

With a strong, loving container and central focus on embodiment, the dare is on. Through creative partner and group exercises we practice interrupting moments of racism with our voices. We practice staying present with our fear and expanding our capacity for discomfort. We practice fucking up and trying again. We practice calling out and calling in with compassion. We dive into darkness on purpose with the intention of training our hearts and voices to show up proudly for ourselves and our communities. Through this process we gain confidence in speaking up, trust in our voices and shared intimacy with our fellow journeyers.


Practicing ProVOCAtive was a precious opportunity for me to face racism-related themes in a direct and honest way. Simple and effective exercises provided me with tools for having clarity and staying present with my own feelings while interacting with others in everyday situations. Kaitlin’s guidance was precise and caring. It was refreshing for me to witness how she discretely brings spirituality and respect for the Mystery into topics related to politics without loosing sight of pragmatism.

Practicing ProVOCAtive is an amazing opportunity to develop the capacity to speak up with compassion and clarity in situations where one would usually fall silent. Kaitlin creates a powerfully supportive environment that plants seeds for social justice work to continue to grow in both personal and professional settings beyond the workshop. Kaitlin is a strong, compassionate leader and through her leadership creates a safe environment to voice discomfort, to voice within discomfort, and to voice despite discomfort. This work is necessary for creating loving social change in our communities and our world.
