ATNSC (pronounced Ata-en-sic) at Kahyonh:áke*, is an urban retreat space and social practice experiment in the Great Lakes Region of Northeast Ohio where healing, learning, creating and leading through a lens of wholistic transformation is the focus of our work. We are located in the historic Buckeye-Shaker community.
We believe sustainable community change begins with the health and well-being of its members. We believe access to alternative health modalities within a neighborhood, access to information and diverse ideas are critical to building momentum and capacity within a community. It increases innovation, community organizing effectiveness and cultivates the creativity needed to address local community concerns.
Paradoxically, we believe access to diverse global perspectives can catalyze local communities to see themselves connected to a larger narrative and create increased commitment to nurturing a healthy community.
*Cleveland, Ohio; Mohawk word meaning "at the river"
