I’m Bear Hebert (they/them), and I’m a happy queer from south Louisiana trying to help us all get a little more free. I believe that relational work is real work, that emotional work is movement work. I orient my life around liberation.
I taught yoga for a decade before I saw how harmful it actually is to engage in that kind of casual appropriation. I finally realized that widespread societal approval doesn’t make something right or just or okay, so I quit, and if you’re white like me, I think you might should too.
Now I work with artists, activists, self-employed people and other freaks around how to build the world yet to come inside this (sometimes hellish, often beautiful) world that currently is. I do this through liberated life coaching and anti-capitalist business consulting. My side gig is teaching men+ how to undo patriarchally-conditioned bad behavior.
I think simplicity, connection, honesty and pleasure are pretty good paths towards a liberated future, and that with those, we’ve got a pretty good shot at some moments of liberation on the way there. Plants are my friends and nature is my god.
