Sara Alvarado speaking to audience in Madison, Wisconsin

Guided conversations (that will get messy!) leading us to a deeper understanding of ourselves, the world we live in, and how we can be and do better.

Welcome to the place where we get messy together on our way to doing and being better for a more just world. If you are drawn to doing the work, you are in the right place. I can’t promise it will be easy, but that’s okay…we do hard things.

Learning and exploring with others in community can be a helpful way to engage and grow. It isn’t the whole shebang. It’s a start. We also have to walk the talk. But the path to liberation for all starts with the foundational work of unlearning, examining, and relearning.

Many of us weren’t raised to have open discussions around privilege, race, religion, loving ourselves, pleasure, boundaries, and so much more. We learned that if we couldn’t say something nice (read: perfectly articulated positions), then we shouldn’t say anything at all. Yeah, that’s not working out so well. 

Get Messy, Get Better sessions are structured yet flexible conversations. I ask you to show up as you are, with integrity, compassion, and a desire to be better. I acknowledge that you are already perfect, just the way you are. We are divine beings living human experiences. 

You may struggle with feeling like you aren’t good enough, you don’t know enough, you don’t want to hurt anyone…we all share those struggles. Bring it. Let’s get better together.
