Meet the facilitators:

Shea Bodine is the owner of Rooted Resilience. She grew up in the Southwest and continues to enjoy learning about the plants,  animals and indigenous peoples of the PNW. She is a mama to two boys and her heart is most illuminated when spending time with kids in nature. She is a licensed bilingual  K-12 educator. When she’s not outside with kids, she works as an emotion coach in public schools. You can find her working in her garden, making music, playing by the river, crafting or baking.

Andre Ignacio Dimapilis (he/him) is a Filipinx-American culture-bearing performance artist, sound facilitator, and peaceful warrior.  His art-making in theatre, sound, movement, text, building relationships and rituals are in harmony with the truths that he lives as Filipinx-American, a male person of color (POC), living in the current times working towards social and racial justice. Andre has been devising theatre since 2010 in diverse communities (youth, elders, multidisciplinary artists, filipinx-americans, indigenous filipinx artists) all over the US and in Rwanda. He creates art focused on presenting stories of the human experience and engaging audiences to think critically about the world around us. Andre is the founder of Kalayaan Sound, LLC. Kalayaan is the Filipinx word for freedom, using the healing power of sound from indigenous and traditional instruments for participants to re-connect and re-member the freedom of their spirit. Andre infuses ancestral wisdom and indigenous knowledge for participants to listen with their body, connect with spirit, and have clear intentions during sound therapy sessions for a personalized and meaningful experience.
