Our community acts from knowing and honoring the individual and collective ability to imagine, design, build, and sustain loving and healthy families and communities. We, community people, determine the economic, governmental, health/healing, and spiritual systems that assure wholistic circulation throughout.
To design and build a high school grounded in liberation and wholeness.
To train emerging and established leaders to build strong, heart-centered, and community-responsive programs. To provide youth and adult changemakers with tools and practices for the well-being of body, mind, and spirit.
To provide Liberation Education that affirms and increases students’ capacity and access to contribute to their community and the larger society.
We, at 4 Circles Beyond are committed to BEING the TRANSFORMERS that we and our fellow humans are desperately yearning for. Whether facilitating BD101 Intensives, supporting youth empowerment through Peace, Liberation & the Arts (PL&A) or working to build the Academy for Peace & Liberation Education we are about radical truth-telling, radical love, and inside/outside transformation.
We expose and dispel myths based in domination, particularly white supremacy and the inferiority of BIPOC and low income.
“Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and Justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” -MLK
Most impacted by injustice
Center the reality of those most impacted by injustice - those dis-acknowledged and targeted by lies of inferiority, those systematically excluded from opportunities to create toward their own well-being.
Tapping in, creating, and offering art helps us to re-member who we are – divine co-creators. Liberation: Renewing the vitality of life- mentally, physically, and spiritually.
