“At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source.”
— Rachel Naomi Remen, MD
It all started in 2017…
Nora and Andy, then 2 of the 9 co-owners of TerraLuna Collaborative, realized were creating an approach to evaluation that people were hungry for. They were hungry for learning, reflection, and adaption (in other words, evaluation) that embraces complexity; that is grounded in values and guided by principles; that infuses the arts throughout; and that relentlessly seeks to illuminate and disrupt oppressive systems.

Our guiding principles (still undergoing the creative process) tell you what we do to bring about the world we all deserve.
Be & Become
Connect with ourselves and each other in the spirit of love, discovery, and exploration. Recognize that simply being with awareness and presence is an important part of becoming. Commit to a journey of being and becoming whole, healing the trauma of past and present injustices.
Disrupt & Liberate
Create opportunities to listen to each other openly and without fear. Acknowledge, respect and celebrate difference(s) and commonalities. Collectively, lovingly and courageously working vigorously for freedom and justice for all people.
Learn & Unlearn
Probe, question, explore, and engage in dialogue to developing a fuller, more three-dimensional view of reality in the process. Identify and take action on areas for learning and un-learning for healthy growth and transformation.
Remember & Create
Bring together people with different ways knowing and being. Hold creative tension and use the creative process to co-create a vision for the future, starting with an honest remembering and understanding of the past and truthful assessment of the present.
