Conversation Café on the Expanded Spiral as a Tool of Liberation

May 25, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am PDT

Frieda Nixdorf

Event Overview

Following on from the webinar on Experiencing the Expanded Spiral as a Tool of Liberation with Mutima Imani and Shayontoni Ghosh – this Conversation Café will give us the opportunity to explore the concepts and practices presented. How can these additional steps in the spiral help us work together for collective liberation and create more equitable and socially aware WTR experiences?

This cafe is open to anyone who attended the Expanded Spiral webinar on May 18 or who watched the recording of the event. In particular, experienced and emerging facilitators are invited to come together to share your insights, bring your questions and curiosity and learn from your community.

In order to create a more interactive and intimate environment, this Conversation Café will not be recorded. We encourage you to register only if you plan on joining us live.

As part of the WTR Network Webinar & Conversation Cafe Program, this event is offered on a donation basis. We invite you to donate generously within your means and to feel free to join us even if you can’t contribute financially. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

If you are in China and find that you are having issues accessing the registration form and please contact Helen Sui to register for this event.



This Café is hosted by the Work That Reconnects Network and facilitated by Frieda Nixdorf and Shayontoni Rhea Ghosh. 

Shayontoni is an artist and facilitator, living and working out of Hyderabad, India. She serves as Staff on the WTR Network. She writes, makes theatre, holds space for self-reflection, healing and integration; and is always dreaming up new worlds from her desk.

Frieda is committed to drawing community into transformational experiences to remember our belonging, our interdependence, and our kinship with the more-than-human world. Amongst many other things, Frieda has studied art, religion, psychology, yoga and the intricacies of beautiful and broken world around her. She has taught Eastern and Western Psychology at several community colleges, and Soul Purpose at the graduate level, and has been incorporating WTR practices into everything she does since she first met Joanna in graduate school in 2002. Frieda facilitates WTR and Soul Purpose workshops and serves as a Weaver on the WTR Network team.

Frieda currently resides on the unceded ancestral homelands of the Nisenan People, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Northern California, where she lives with her small family of three humans, two dogs, three chickens and more plant and animal beings than she can count.
