Hi, I'm Kali.
I’m a coach, writer, artist, and space-holder who works to build imaginative presents & futures beyond capitalism.
I study systems of domination, including capitalism, whiteness, and neoliberalism, and ask things like, How does that feel in your body? What might the trees, or the creek have to say about this? What kinds of pressure are we under and what can we actually do about it?
I work with people as they grapple with deep questions about what life can look like under capitalism (and other systems), what we can learn from our bodies and the earth, and what stories, teachings, and practices we might need to shift our relationships + culture, and make a different kind of world.
What I'm about + what I do
I hold space for a wide variety of questions + inquiries. I especially love working with people who are asking questions about non-binary ways of moving through the world, how to live and work in meaningful ways under capitalism (whether paid, unpaid, or something else not usually considered work by systems), the ways systems of harm interrupt our connection to ourselves, each other + the earth, and ways to build the playful, joyous lives we're longing for. If you’re interested in working with me on something and aren’t sure if it fits this list, just send me a message! I’m always happy to chat about my approach and areas of focus before we dive in to working together.
My work uses questions, stories, and somatic + intuitive practices to identify the ways systems of oppression and domination work in and on and between us, and where there might be unexpected fragilities in these systems. My practice comes from my lived experience and study: you can learn more about my connections and lineages here. I am not a licensed mental health professional, and/but I practice being systems-aware, trauma-and-attachment-informed, and consent-based in my work and life. You can find reflections from people who have worked with me here.
I'm white, queer + nonbinary, and carry the stories + body-memory of european settlers and immigrants who have primarily worked with their hands, lived near water, and who in various ways chose allegiance to colonialism & white supremacy over collective care as they sought safety and security.
My mom says I've been curious about the world around me since I first opened my eyes. I have my grandmother's laugh, and her love of trees. (And while this website might make it seem otherwise, I rarely do things alone.)
