“In this age of misinformation, there is power in telling the truth. We all need to look within, recognise our own power, and face what is happening together. This movement is not about symbolic actions, but about building the necessary resilient and regenerative culture that the world needs now. It’s all about taking activists into becoming activators and igniting heart intelligence.”
Skeena sees the Extinction Rebellion Visioning Group’s role as finding ways to bring people together, breaking down the “them” and “us” and finding a way to the “heart” of rebellion and a new evolutionary politics.
Skeena is also a trauma release therapist, and a movement (Pilates, Yoga, Feldenkrais, Garuda and Energy Medicine) and heart-math meditatation teacher.
