We Can Liberate Your Research

Liberate your research using these three proven principles in our workshops.

Healing

Acquire tools for healing from academic anxieties like imposter syndrome while fostering the kinds of radical self and collective love needed to grow your ideas and share them out with the world.

Claiming

Learn how to ground your research in your own core perspectives and how to own what you have to say rather than writing in reaction to how you think academic gatekeepers might judge your work.

Framing

Learn how to write your imaginative theories, analytics, and methodologies as a pathway toward affirming the fullness of your voice, ideas, and interventions.

Nadine helped me acknowledge my power and stop giving it away to the harmful and toxic academic-industrial complex. Nadine helped me learn to empower myself with what uplifts and nourishes me, to make the worries smaller, and remember why I do what I do. What she taught me will forever shape my pedagogy and personal life. It was indeed a life-altering experience.
