Frailty Myths offers workshops for women, trans, and gender non-conforming folks that provide a transformative experience through our experiential, intersectional learning model that pairs hands-on skills learning with facilitated conversations that allow our participants to practice being in the world we are trying to create by healing from and replacing toxic narratives with constructive ones. We’re ReImagining Femininity and Building Power because we know a more just world is possible.

What we believe in

Together, we are building the world we want to live in
1

Empowerment

It’s a feeling.  It’s the feeling that pushes aside all of the toxic narratives that tell us we aren’t enough and fills each of us and our community with possibility, agency, and power. 

2

Real Skills

Our curriculum is based on learning real, hands-on skills, like building, climbing, and self reliance.   Participants walk away with knowledge, increased confidence, and part of a network that continuing building on all of it.

3

Community

As revolutionaries, we are learning to be less dependent on oppressive systems and institutions.  Standing on the shoulders of giants and moving together as  we build a more just future.  We are ever learning to lean on each other for support and love.  Learning the power and self and community determination. 

4

Leadership

At Frailty Myths, we know that true leadership skills come from community service not from ego and defensiveness.  To lead is to serve, it’s to take risks, to love.

Testimonials.

Smashing Myths and Changing Lives.

“I took a workshop with Frailty Myths in NYC & it was everything I’ve been looking for — a space to create, do woodworking work that previously felt inaccessible to me, AND to be able to do so in community with other queer & trans people was 100% a dream come true. The facilitators set the groundwork for us to explore not only the physical skills but also root us back into how these skills originate from Black & brown communities. They broke down how we could learn together without judgement & were clear & patient each step in the way about all the power tools. I left the workshop radiating, with new community in this city.”

Offerings

Frailty Myths believes in Co-Creation, in the power of the collective, in what we can build when we are willing to see and hear each other.
We don't think there is a one-size-fits-all solution for how we ReImagine and Buid a more just and loving world.

Rooted in our principles, methods, and revolutionary practice - we work with you and your team to dig into the specific needs of your group and to together grow a stronger, more enlightened, more healed, more visionary world.
Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Workshops

Frailty Myths offers single or multi-session packages on D&I trainings. Our workshops focus on creating a shared and safe space for folks to name gaps or dynamics that create inequitable workspaces, while focusing on developing training and tactics to create a more just and inclusive environment for the future.

Collective Visioning and Alignment
Our Collective Visioning and Alignment series are for organizations and groups that feel like they’re ready to take the next step in imagining and building the world that we want to live in. This workshop is instrumental in helping groups get alignment on a shared vision and begin the process of creating the pathway to imagination needed to achieve that vision.
Team Building

At Frailty Myths, we know that communication can be hard. And we also know that creating a clear and concise communication strategy is one of the keys to success. Through our custom built Team Building Training, we’ll create challenges and tools that leave participants better able to communicate their needs, be more seen, and become more confident members of the team.

School & Youth Programs

Frailty Myths has programming designed for young people too! We know that young people are ready and able to tackle the problems of racism, patriarchy, and white supremacy and build better communities. We offer training, including collective visioning, diversity inclusion, and team building workshops for K-12 and Universities around the world.

Consultation
Creating change and building a new world can be challenging. At Frailty Myths, we know that many of us are currently fighting in our fields to make change. We see you and we can help! We offer one-on-one Leadership Development and Consultation services for individuals across the world. Through one-on-one meetings, tailored to your needs and your growth, we’ll help you find the insight and guidance you need.
