FUCKING REAL AT SEATTLE UNIVERSITY

In the dynamic event held in Seattle, Clementine Morrigan and Jay Lesoleil, the minds behind the captivating "Fucking Cancelled" podcast, curated an enthralling experience for attendees. Their podcast is widely acclaimed for its fearless analysis and critique of cancel culture and social justice orthodoxy, while also envisioning a more robust Left, founded on principles of solidarity, freedom, and responsibility, with the potential to challenge capitalism.

Throughout the event, the audience was immersed in thought-provoking discussions that spanned various crucial topics, including cancel culture, social justice, trauma, sex, and relationships. The presence of esteemed guests, such as anti-capitalist somatic historian Aliko Weste, mental health therapist and pleasure activist Bex Lipps, conflict and culture scholar Lux Gypsum, and neurodecolonist Morgan Vanderpool, LICSW, added depth and richness to the conversations.

EXPANSION THOUGHT LEADERS PARTY 

First

designed as

a fundraiser for

Expansion Fest 2019,

the Thought Leaders Party

turned into something entirely

its own. Synthesized with

music, bodywork, and

dancing, it was a

night that could

not be

beat!

Through

gathering

musicians, industry

experts, healers,

changemakers, and activists, we brought together the best minds of our generation and left with a

sense of togetherness,

pride, and

new

horizons.

Crafted

to ensure that

all information was

digestible, impactful,

and centered, our sold-out

symposium was successfully able

to raise significant funds for Expansion and created

a resource pool

for our

extended

web.

The Village Events Series

One of our

original synthesis-style

events, The Village

Events series evolved out of a desire to highlight and connect people to industry leaders in growing, sustainable, earth-first movements, ancestors, communities and

homes. 

Each

event included themes 

around permaculture,

community living and sustainable design. This included everything

from family, architecture, ancestry, eco village experiences and visions, urban design and more. We had many leaders and sponsors in the Seattle area supporting our events 

and vision. 

With

information comes

powerful experiences.

Our community left with heads brimming of new possibilities,

new connections, and new ways

to become involved in the

crucial work of bettering

humanity, its people and its buildings.

Listen and watch to some of the magic we created!
We made a podcast to host and house some of the talks. You can listen below on Soundcloud or Apple podcasts.

The Village Mixtape

Expansion Virtual Mastermind Series

In 2020 we hosted an online festival with 30+ workshops over a period of two months. 

Expansion (Activated) was a chrysalis of socio-cultural change synthesizing inspired action, ecological thinking, and sacred expression. At the start of this new decade, we invite you to be not only an ally, but an accomplice in the Great Turning. Join us as we tend the gardens of our souls, grow our gifts, expand our networks, and deepen our roots in the movement ecosystem. 

 

As the COVID-19 pandemic is forcing us to halt business as usual, it is also allowing many of us to slow down, rediscover what we value, and illuminating the fragility of our society. Communities around the world are mobilizing in an effort to heal, repair, and take back their power. The world as we know it will never be the same, and together, we create the future.

 

Expansion (Activated) | A Virtual Mastermind Series is our response to this time. We have curated a workshop series that will grow your awareness, inspire your heart, expand your mind, and connect you with thought leaders from around the globe. 

 

Expansion remains rooted in the vision that the more we gather, the more we manifest the future we desire. Although this looks different in these times, we hope you will join us virtually as we empower each other to embody new paradigms and expand our New Earth toolkits.

All of our workshops

We hosted 30+ leaders and change makers from all over the world. On topics ranging from socail justice, food justice, spirituality, design, health, and more.
