Our mission is to expand the capacity of people to make meaning of their lives and cultivate cultures of healing and justice.
Through professional development, coaching, and meaningful gatherings, we support organizations to make meaning of current challenges, repair and strengthen relationships, and develop an organizational culture that advances well-being for all.
We are grounded in a critically conscious paradigm and practical experience from the fields of trauma informed and culturally responsive practices.
What do you value most about working with Meaning Makers Collective?
It didn't feel formulaic or contrived, it felt genuinely connected, that Michelle and Judee were invested in our cohort not just professionally, but personally. That investment made me more focused.
Director of Human Resources
Appreciate your approach to this work in honoring different perspectives and embodying the practices you preach. Power dynamics definitely play out even within our small organization and it was nice to see people reflecting and supported in shifting paradigms.
Nonprofit Organization Staff Member
The set up of their program embedded the practices and mindfulness into our staff in a way that a usual "sit and get" and "one and done" program would not.
School Instructional Coach
I feel more open to my colleagues and continuing to work with our team. I had been anxious due to a few experiences we've had thus far that caused me to perceive us as "not being on the same page" - but the progression of experiences/learning in these sessions has helped lower the 'affective filter'
Nonprofit Organization Program Manager
It has been very useful to have this space where you feel a sense of community and support. These Wellness Wednesdays have truly been a place that allows me to decompress and practice self-care.
School Mental Health Professional
The understanding that wellness is not a product, but a process. What I do in my education, work, and parental role is vital, but self-care will help me support others around me.
Parent & Educator
Doing this type of work remotely seems incredibly daunting. I appreciated the various ways that we were invited to participate, including using the chat. The facilitation was warm and inviting and also well organized and planned.
