the project

ATNSC is developing a campaign to collect the resources necessary to create a sustainable foundation for its work in Northeast Ohio.  We are creating an interdisciplinary space for wellness, life-long learning and leadership through a multicultural and creative framework for our local community while creating opportunities locally, regionally and nationally/internationally to engage in experiential and creative dialogue to create a sustainable just world.  We will do this by instituting daily programming, intentional learning experiences and public healing spaces for communities throughout the city of Cleveland.  We will do this by bringing thought leaders, artists, healers and change agents to engage our community in new and energizing ways.  We have a special emphasis on intercultural, cross cultural and intergenerational connections to develop innovative, creative and sustainable solutions to both local and global dynamics.  Our world is changing and we need to develop new ways of being and doing in our world.  This project is one way to nurture who we need to become in our changing landscape.

The first phase of the project is securing space in the Buckeye neighborhood while creating access to community members East and West.  We are fundraising for program materials, equipment for health and wellness services, scholarships for program participants and for minor renovations within our communal space to open our doors.

ATNSC at Kahnyonhake, is a gathering space in Cleveland where healing, learning, creating and leading through a lens of wholistic transformation as the focus of its work

the steps

Once we have raised the funds we will work to secure and renovate our selected Buckeye location; prepare the space for an August 2016 grand opening.  We will purchase the items necessary to provide massage, meditation, herbal consultations and yoga classes.  We will secure our four change catalysts-in-residence for monthly extended programs, begin marketing, website development and community outreach to spread the word of our offerings.  Additionally, we must develop our administrative infrastructure (office supplies, hospitality supplies, tables, chairs, etc.) to ensure safety, hospitality and flow of services.

why we're doing it

We believe sustainable community change begins with the health and well-being of its members; We believe access to alternative health modalities within a neighborhood, access to information and diverse ideas are critical to building momentum and capacity within a community increases innovation, community organizing effectiveness and the creativity needed to address local community concerns; paradoxically, we believe access to diverse global perspectives can catalyze local communities to see themselves connected to a larger narrative and create increased commitment to nurturing a healthy community—change may begin with self, yet access to the tools and strategies to increase self-awareness and confidence is critical to any social transformation.


Thank you everyone who has helped fund this project--overwhelmed with joy!

Deep gratitude and joy to all who imbued the foundations of this project with their donation! Thank you for helping us to begin in a good way!


 Many thanks for ALL who have supported this campaign! We are getting there!


My story: After my grandfather passed, the work of integrating the journey I took with him is still unfolding--so much love, learning, transformation & deep change occurred in the intentional four year path I chose to campanion with him on.  The purpose of everything we experience is to give away what we have learned--to be useful.  


I am currently in the process of creating a holistic healing, co-working and creative leadership space in the historic Buckeye-Shaker community.  It is called ATNSC: Center for Healing & Creative Leadership.  Our world is changing and we need to prepare together to become who we need to be in this new world being birthed--join this experiment.  Support it's growth.


I am partnering with ioby through our wonderful local strategist Indigo Bishop to create a campaign to assist with gathering the resources to renovate the space and develop the various materials needed to sustain the experiment while it grows.


Please share with others who you'd think would love to learn about this project.

Thank you!

Many thanks to all who have donated to date! Wonderful to have your good thoughts in the foundation of this project! LOVE
