MINDFUL + RANT =
COMMITTED SHIFT PRACTICE
LIBERATION begins IN THE MIND...
and whatever lives in our imagination controls our perception of what choices we have most willingness and agency to operationalize. Our capacity to exercise choice freedoms, be them small or significant, rests in our sense of relationship to the worlds around us. Our ability to visualize and manifest our reality is reflective of our greatest potential to transmute desire and belief into an actualized individual and collective power - to forge from sheer ideation into living practice is our ultimate Liberation.
MindfulRant specializes in mining, disrupting and harmonizing truths in service to expanding possibility. MR methodologies are rooted in decolonizing leadership approaches that perpetuate violent, competitive and disharmonious ways of relating to ourselves, one another, and governs how we lead the world.
MindfulRant's methodologies are rooted in participatory, emergent leadership design and consciousness coaching that foster clarity in strategic direction and supports dynamic Humyn interdependencies.
Do you have a version of you, you feel far away from?
Are you ready to make big shifts in your life, family or work and need support rising to the version of you, needed to meet those shifts?
Would you like to foster a culture of truth, reconciliation, creativity, radical responsibility and power within your organization, group or family?
Are you ready to lead yourself and others into a more conscious, wholly way of moving through the world?
Are the current operational systems governing your collective binding up your strategic vision?
Do hard conversations need mediation and healing space?
Toni Anderson is a southside Chicago native dedicated to fostering meaningful eco-social practice as a roadmap for personal and societal transformation. Toni is a practitioner of wholeness, a healer, an urban ecologist, a spiritualist. Toni has planted freedoms through approaches rooted in cultural, eco-spiritual and generative, participatory design.
In 2008, after a life changing illness, Toni left a 22 year corporate career to activate a meaningful, purpose-driven life. Believing our youth deserve to have an enriched, eco-social relationship with the natural and social environments, in 2012 she founded Sacred Keepers Sustainability Lab, an organization dedicated to ‘planting freedom’’ by providing robust youth centered coursework spanning urban ecology, global travel/service leadership, space equity, conscious leadership and the arts. Sacred Keepers intentionally examined the value systems and sacred earth keeping traditions of indigenous cultures and how they uniquely relate and are impacted by nature and climate change.
Toni uses the rich dynamics of natural and social environments to provide youth with the tools to be agents of proactive, mindful social change. She creates place-based youth development curricula rooted in a love of generational outdoor experiences. As a parent, Toni understands the roles that mindfulness and nature play in freedom-making
