Kavitha (she/her) is a mother, facilitator, mediator, consultant, and practitioner.
As a daughter of immigrants to the US, she has always been curious about difference and how we make meaning through connection to land, community, and place.
Kavitha brings over 20 years experience in the non-profit sector focused on transformational leadership and facilitation, building community and authentic partnerships across difference, and using creativity and collective visioning to work towards reparations and healing. Her understanding of the possibility of change and healing is deeply influenced by her training in yoga therapy, cranio-sacral therapy, ayurveda, and mindfulness. She brings these tools to her leadership and facilitation work recognizing how important knowing ourselves and personal healing is in our efforts to heal our planet and build community.
She has worked with CWC since 2006 as a facilitator, trainer and consultant and is excited to bring more embodied practice to our offerings and our understanding of the many ways to support change. Prior to that she co-founded Common Fire, a nonprofit that created intentional communities centered in justice, accessibility, and sustainability. Kavitha is a member of the Emergent Strategy Ideation Institute team of facilitators, mediators and coaches; serves on the board for Soul Fire Farm; and is a core consultant to the Wildseed Community Farm and Healing Village.
She offers deep gratitude for her many influences – the grassroots groups around the world that she has had the privilege to work with, her mentor Lillie Allen of Be Present Inc., and her many colleagues, mutual-mentors, and teachers along the way.
