Tracy L. Stewart
Tracy L. Stewart is mindfulness-based mental health therapist, wellness educator, end of life care provider, and healing justice activist in Seattle, WA. She currently serves on the board of A Sacred Passing, a BIPoC centered healing justice and end of life care organization. She also serves as co-facilitator of Buddhist Peace Fellowship (BPF) – Seattle, and has served on several participatory budget granting projects.
She sees her role in community as working to create supportive, safe space for BIPoC folks in discovering their gifts through mindfulness practice and social justice awareness. Her cup is filled by the outside places, silly friends with microphones, passion for life, and folks sharing their good medicine with each other. Tracy co-founded Gathering Roots Wellness with Nikki Chau, with the intention of creating a place where that burden can be released, people can fill their cups with joyful learning and the beauty of the Earth. Now Tracy is supporting small BIPoC grassroots and nonprofits with resource mobilization, grant making, and justice-centered organizational development.
“My focus is learning to be a good elder in order to support those out in the community fighting for all us to BE. In my work, I see a lot of suffering of Black and brown people who are worn from fighting to be their full selves in all spaces."
