Fisgard and Government
Downtown Victoria

I believe humanity will not survive unless we choose love over power and ego.

We will not get beyond the current globally destructive domination paradigm without viscerally dealing with our vulnerability.

Most humans on the earth come from cultures rooted in millennia of domination. Understanding must go beyond cognition into the body.

By standing naked and unscripted for the Human Body Project, I am choosing vulnerability and authenticity.

I represent and share not only my own vulnerability, but I also stand in solidarity with those who are most vulnerable, such as children. As a sample human, I represent the vulnerability of all humanity at this time of urgency.

This is my way of being the change and teaching what I need to learn. My work is a commitment to healing and action.

In public, as a form of outreach and non-violent protest, I hold monthly Vulnerability Vigils. Along with the people who join me, I stand naked on public streets. In a gesture of gentleness to those who may be affronted by nudity, my supporters and I hold a large sign.

Recently, I wrote an explanation of why I do the Human Body Project for my 5- and 10-year-old daughters, which seemed to help grown-ups understand as well:
