James Boutin (he/they)

Educator, Facilitator, and Coach for Social Change

You’re passionate about creating more humane, just, and inclusive systems for all people.

I can help your efforts become more effective, sustainable, and authentic.

What I Do

I help social change advocates with three things:

  1. A next-level understanding of oppression (workshops)

  2. Personal growth and transformation (coaching)

  3. Facilitating conflict to support growth and prevent violence (facilitation and training)

Who I Work With

I work with folks who see the problems our society is facing and have a strong desire to positively affect social change.

They read the books, go to the trainings, organize in community, and make efforts to create systemic change. The problem is, despite their efforts, they’re often left feeling…

  • isolated

  • burnt out

  • unsure if they’re making a difference

  • superior or inferior to other advocates

  • resentful

  • powerless

  • overly critical and under-relational

We encounter a kind of learning cliff once we’ve been involved with social change work long enough.

We crave whatever is beyond anti-oppression trainings and mainstream activism. We’re passionate not only about understanding the work, but also about being extremely effective.

At some point we realize that part of what it takes to contribute to systems transformation is going through personal transformation.

How I Help

If you’d like to take your social change efforts to a new level, I can help you…

  • experience a transformative shift in the way you understand social change work

  • make better decisions that yield more effective results

  • understand your unique and needed role in this work

  • become more connected, embodied, and relational
