the only lasting truth is change

Resources for exploring survival strategies, creative inspiration and tools for building a new world 

TELL us if this sounds familiar:

You feel unmotivated to create/ work on meaningful projects
You find it difficult to practice self-care consistently
You struggle to live in the present moment and enjoy it
You feel the weight of all that has been lost recently
You are unsure about the path forward in whatever this "new normal" is

If so, then you already know how hard it is to get to thriving from your own energy alone

That's what inspired us to Curate

We were feeling isolated and anxious during a global pandemic with shifting politics and continual grief, and like you:

Our friends and colleagues have been far away from us
It's hard to meet new people who share our commitments
We need models for surviving change and crisis

We turned to the work of Octavia Butler for inspiration ...

and created the Shaping Change Bundle

A set of resources exploring survival strategies, creative inspiration, and tools for building a new world.

We have materials for reflection and inspiration that have helped us to cultivate self-love, empathy, hope and leadership.

Access resources for resilience so you can adapt to surprise and challenges

Navigate change with timeless values so you have a guide for charting your next steps

Meet Tananarive and Monica

We’re Monica A. Coleman and Tananarive Due and we are writers, professors and friends who are inspired by the works of Octavia Butler to achieve ideals of self-sufficiency, self-love, empathy, hope, and leadership.

Monica is a religion scholar, minister, mental health advocate and university professor. She teaches and speaks widely about theologies based on change and liberation. Tananarive is an American Book Award-winning author, screenwriter, producer and university lecturer.  For more than 20 years, she has been a leading voice in black speculative fiction and horror.

During the global pandemic of 2020, we started having public conversations about the lessons we can learn from the work of Octavia E. Butler, one of the most important science fiction writers of the 20th century.  We cultivated more intimate community about shaping change and cultivated a set of resources that encouraged us all.  The Shaping Change Bundle!  The bundles gives us tactics for thriving while feeling a connection with other readers, creatives, teachers and activists who also love Octavia. 

We have loved leading the Shaping Change Community.  Now we are offering our Shaping Change Resources to everyone.  Check out how community members have felt about Shaping Change

I love being in this group! I was craving having a voice in a community where people wanted to be.

Sue Alexander

When we gather virtually for "Shaping Change" we are building our singular voices and talents, and sparking the talents of one another, as we witness, bear and activate change.

I love the opportunity to be vulnerable in a likeminded space.

I'm a writer and it's still hard for me to put into words how life-giving this community has been for me. I have benefitted personally, professionally, even spiritually. In a time of confusion, Monica and Tananarive have offered insight. In a time of struggle, they have offered inspiration. In a time of doubt, they have been a source of hope.
