Hi! I’m Alana Brekelmans (she/her), an anthropologist, storyteller, and embodied practice facilitator who spends her days thinking about narrative, embodiment, affect, temporality, and place.
My vision is to compassionately, critically, and creatively engage with a variety of stories–including those stories which are silent, unspoken, embodied, other-the-human, and absent–to examine how these narratives interface with power structures in the processes of worlding.
I do this by spending time with people and in places. I listen, observe, question, move, and write in order to gain new understandings about social and environmental matters.
