Confronting yourself isn’t easy work. But it can lead to transformation. Mental, physical and spiritual obstacles abound. But we believe that learning how to regulate yourself – and your emotions – in a world that can’t be regulated can and should be a memorable voyage. Maybe even an adventure. And it’s one way you can serve the world. To discover infinite connection, we first must create a relationship with ourselves and others.
Othership creates space to shift emotional, physical, and mental states through peak experiences. We see and understand possibility.
Beyond what, let us tell you why: we lead with purpose and measure our success against it. No matter who sits on our team today or tomorrow, our purpose aligns our work: to serve as a house of transformation for all.
Othership understands that transformation should and could be available to all regardless of income, race, ability, sexual orientation or gender identity. In the spirit of honouring our sameness and our uniqueness, we create spaces both IRL and URL to pay attention so we may be open to the interconnectivity that animates the human experience for a more joy-filled life and living.
To ensure our shared journey is one that is both equitable and accessible we orient all of our decisions, conversations, and actions towards the following core values:
The standards we hold ourselves and our community members too, in our studios and beyond.
We carry deep respect and humility in regards to sacred and cultural practices that harness the power of hot + cold. For more information visit our learning lab to understand the how + why including insight to trainings and relationship building with a variety of facilitators and lineages.
We believe in dialogue and nuance and create space to learn, unlearn, and transform.
Instead of cancel culture we seek to understand while upholding and embodying our core values outlined above.
We commit to fostering a community that is inclusive and accepting of all and action this through our hiring practices, programming, and marketing materials. We commit to representation across all levels of community: full time staff, part time facilitators, guides, stewards, management positions, and most importantly - journeyers.
We stand in solidarity with historically underserved communities and work with a DEI/belonging/accommodations community leader to ensure our commitment to this work remains a process held up by relationship building, trust, and care.
Our physical space is fully wheel-chair accessible and we are open to discussing any accommodations to support your journey via email@example.com.
We recognize capitalist privilege and the determinants of what it means to be financially well and offer pop-up reduced rate community classes and partially subsidized offerings as a commitment to financial accessibility.
Through individual and collective training we practice guiding and interacting from a trauma-informed place recognizing the presence of trauma symptoms and the role that trauma plays in any individual’s life.
We have created a confidential incident report and are available for dialogue in the event that some boundary has been crossed.
