Guided by the call to transmute the legacy of her colonizer ancestors, Morgan is dedicating her life to building communities and movements in service to justice, healing and reparations. Arriving to the practices of facilitation, coaching and organizing from a place of many intersecting privileges, Morgan is dedicated to working with her fellow people with wealth and class privilege towards redistribution and atonement. Her work catalyzes the healing of relationship with self, other, family and the land, enabling the release of power and control so that money can move towards social, environmental and economic justice. She is passionate about youth organizing, ancestral healing, grief work and direct action. Morgan is a resident of Canticle Farm, an interracial, interfaith, intergenerational community in occupied Ohlone territory (known as Oakland, CA).
Why I am called to facilitate the Work
Guided by the call to transmute the legacy of my colonizer ancestors, I dedicate my life to building communities and movements in service to justice, healing and reconciliation. I know that the truth telling and multi-faceted reconnection needing to be done by white folks and folks of other privileges is essential for any possible healing and reconciliation on a societal scale. The Work That Reconnects, the spiral and its way of life are the way I found myself in this work and the way I feel most called to invite in and serve others.
How I see the Work serving the Great Turning
The Work That Reconnects is a doorway to self, other, ancestors, descendants and the Earth. As a white person with wealth and class privilege, I believe in this work as a crucial framework for inviting others of my identities into the work that is ours to do to show up and dismantle racialized capitalism. It invites each of us as participants in these times to expand our awareness and our capacity to respond whole-heartedly to what we see. It doesn't stop with self-transformation, but deeply invites action in the world, at a level of depth commensurate with the crisis.
