Hello! I'm Francine, a gal who left a previous high-stress, high-consumption lifestyle of the Western working world to explore alternative narratives in reconnecting with nature, sustainable living, reconnecting with self, and creating more whimsy in the world :).
I find many things interesting — movement practices (ecstatic dance, somatics, acrobatics — things that tap into our innate energy and move us from thinking from the head (which I so often do!) to connecting with heart and intuition); creating and maintaining nurturing, safe spaces with people; community building; horticulture; herbal medicine; art; and food (raw foods, fermentations, plant-based dishes)
Whilst in California for a few years, I worked in technology — as a software designer and researcher in designing experiences for people to help them collaborate, organize files on the internet, and hail taxis faster :P.
I can help with retreat management, operations, designing analog/guest experiences for people, illustrations (murals and posters), entheogenic facilitation, cooking for cafes or retreats, and yoga instruction (I am certified from India). I much prefer working with my hands, after spending years on screens, so I welcome collaborations / exchanges on the tactile front :)
I can also help with project management, organizing digital files, and event/retreat promotion. I mentor students remotely on User Research and Experience Design, and freelance as a grant-writer for awesome causes, while I travel.
