❖ This workshop has been postponed to Saturday, August 22nd. (Click to Register)
With great regret, Margaux and I are needing to postpone our event (from July 11th) due to not being able to get a core group of men and women together in the numbers and distribution that we are looking for for the best, most dynamic sharing, learning and outcomes for the participants. We are moving the event to August 22nd and will still be hosted by the Brookline/Cambridge Community Center for the Arts, for which we are fortunate and honored. Please let us know, if you are not able to make the postponement date, if you are in need of a refund. We are excited to bring you what we think will be a deep and moving experience. We thank you for your understanding.

Creating Pathways to Understanding and Harmony for Men and Women
A Special Workshop Facilitated by
Ukumbwa Sauti & Margaux Skalecki
Communication and Clarity from Deep Listening and Presence
Saturday, August 22nd, 11:00am-1:30pm EST US
Interactive Online Session via Zoom
This healing workshop presents a safe, brave space to address issues of sex/gender diversity, and promote awareness of how we are affected by the interconnectedness of various forms of oppression, racism, misogyny, heterosexism, etc., for those who identify as women and men. Through the communication channels of free movement, active listening, and deep sharing of life experiences, group members will come together to achieve mutual understanding and clarity.
The workshop is limited to 20 participants (10 of each gender).
Ukumbwa Sauti has taught cultural media studies engaging issues of race, sex and gender oppression, class, colonialism, modernity and technology. He has presented in academic, spiritual/cultural and community venues and taught classes on consent, sexual and intimate safety in sex-positive conferences and organizations for more than 15 years. Ukumbwa currently runs an initiative called Men's Work, engaging men and others in the process of interrogating and dismantling patriarchal privilege and power, toxic masculinity, misogyny and homophobia. He runs on-ground and online groups and events. Ukumbwa consults with organizations and communities around issues of social justice, diversity and inclusion and sexual harassment.

As a member of the #METOO movement, Margaux has always been an advocate for healing and respect for all genders. The workshop "Pathways to Understanding and Harmony for Men and Women" was birthed forward because our communities still request outlets to commune together to listen deeply, share truthfully, and acknowledge the power of what was, what is, and what can be.
