The Genesis Healing Institute is committed to nourishing and amplifying the healing ecosystems which exist within communities directly impacted by historical, systemic and institutional trauma in the United States
We are experiencing a historic convergence at this moment. On one end, we see the unveiling, decay. unraveling and mass rejection of “old world” institutions, social norms, philosophies and values. And on the other end, we see the elevation of collective consciousness toward healing, wellness, sustainability, Earth-stewardship and interdependence. In short, we are in a moment of global transition. With the falling away of the “old world”, we have the opportunity to birth a new way of living and organizing our society- one that centers the healing of people and the planet. The Genesis Healing Institute was created in order ease the distress of this transition and to serve as a guide for those seeking to cultivate a more beautiful world.
