The Dream City Healing Co is a vast and diverse group of individuals dedicated to revolutionizing culture through the healing arts. Our belief is that each individual has the power to heal themself from the inside out, and that anyone who seeks it deserves this knowledge without being subjected to a financial caste system.

 

Reconciling Rape Culture is a series of discussions directed at disrupting rape culture and paving the path forward for our next 7 generations. The five segments in the series will be hosted by a primarily BIPOC team of creatives, activists, and experts in the field.

 

We will begin shooting the segments on Saturday, February 27th, with all organic discussions available on a live stream. The conversations will be edited into one complete release after all five segments are recorded, with the intended release by May 2021, as a supplement to National Mental Health Awareness Month.

 

The first segment will be all about functional tools for addressing trauma, including the most recent epigenetic research as written by Resmaa Menakem. We will use this segment as an anchor for all future conversations in order to re-embody viewers and participants when the conversation becomes challenging or in their own personal experiences outside of this conversation.

The second segment will discuss the topic “What is in a name?” including conversations about linguistic science and culture. We intend to ask whether to name one’s lived experience is necessary for healing the trauma around that experience.

The third segment, entitled “What is sex?” will talk about the potential perceptual variations around what actually constitutes sexual contact across the spectrum of LGBTQAI individuals in contrast to what our culture has come to know as heteronormative sex.

The fourth segment, “What is consent?” seeks to educate the community about transitioning into a consent-based culture (remember, the 11th principle is currently just a proposition) and the challenges that may present themselves when the community seeks to be consent positive while actively altering consciousness.

The fifth segment, “Reparations for Rape Culture,” will begin the discussion around where we can move in a legislative forum in order to create a safer world for our next seven generations.

 

This money will go directly to compensating the panelists for their time. These panelists are BIPOC artists, professionals, and activists who deserve to be fairly compensated while educating their community. We are confirming our final participants, and our current required budget is at $4100. A transparent financial document can be provided once all panelists are confirmed.

 

We are seeking to use this forum to create a cultural shift that will be of benefit to all beings impacted by American culture.

Contribute to the cultural shift beyond #metoo:

  1. fund the panelists,
  2. share our broadcast,
  3. and embody this conversation into your own life. 

 

Any surplus funds will be donated directly to HIPS, a DC based organization promoting the health, rights, and dignity of individuals and communities impacted by sexual exchange and/or drug use due to choice, coercion, or circumstance.
