Residencies are open to BIWOC leaders globally who self-nominate, are nominated by their community, or are invited by New Seneca Villagers.
In the spirit of artists residencies, Villagers have access to nature and the time and space to explore multiple self and community care practices. They also have the opportunity to connect with one another and the space to expand their vision for their work and their communities.
New Seneca Village will provide offerings designed to restore, connect and engage Villagers.
Up to 300 Black, Indigenous and women-of-color social justice leaders join us annually for 10 to 20-day residencies
Complimentary accommodations, access to nature and optional programming
Focused on healing and restoration, relationship building and collective visioning for a future grounded in social justice principles and practices
New Seneca Village is simultaneously invested in building the capacity of the healing justice community. We will contract with up to 160 healing practitioners annually to provide residency offerings.
Practitioners will work limited and flexible schedules so that they too can enjoy a semi-sabbatical experience while weaving restoration more deeply into their own practices.
We define healing justice practitioners as leaders in offering and advancing healing, reflection, expansion, restoration and visioning practices.
We take a wide view of what this means and include therapists, body workers, energy workers, somatic practitioners, spiritual leaders, coaches and artists who assist others in accessing their creativity, self-expression and joy.
