WHAT IS BREAKTHROUGH FACILITATION?
Breakthrough Facilitation is a term given by Tammy Scarlett to the achievement of particular objectives that challenge limitations through a culmination of mediums. It is the work of an advocate assisting in navigating and bringing forth the change you desire in direct reflection of the truth and purpose you hold within you. The methods vary depending on the client and the client’s desired result in their life. Tammy incorporates her education in psychology and anthropology, her background in training executives and management teams, and her experience in energy work such as family constellations and group work facilitation, to custom fit each path to breakthrough and ultimate change. Tammy does individual sessions, workshops, retreats, and speaking engagements. One-on-one sessions can be arranged by phone or Skype.HEAR WHAT TAMMY'S CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY... - CLICK HERE
Since Tammy Scarlett was about three years old, she began operating with a strong desire to be connected with humanity, and see it experience betterment. Her grandmother used to hold her hand and call her attention to details of both beauty and inequality in humans, and in nature. Her heart became deeply tugged in both directions until Tammy desperately wanted and needed to reconcile the two. Tammy’s childhood home was on leasehold land belonging to a Native American Indian reservation in Suquamish, Washington in the US. Nestled in the picturesque Pacific Northwest landscape, Tammy lived her childhood years surrounded by totem poles, spending hours at the waterfront of the scenic Puget Sound, and frequenting ferry boats. As a child, Tammy observed directly the cultural differences that existed in the minds of those around her, noticing when it led to conflict, and when it did not. At 12 years old, Tammy spent time on the Crow Indian Reservation in South Dakota, learning their songs, their rituals, and their ways of life, and helping them to rebuild the parts of their reservation that had become run down.
ARTS, RELIGION, SPEAKING, AND U.S. TRAVEL
Having attended 14 schools in total, both public and private, Tammy grew up performing, singing, leading youth fine arts programs, and mentoring youth. At 19 years of age, Tammy was King County’s youngest public speaker in the school system for the required public health education program called S.H.A.R.E. (Sexuality, Health And Relationship Education). She spent several years of her life working with the homeless communities in downtown Seattle and in the tenderloin of San Francisco, experiencing at times the darkest of situations, but seeing, more prominently than what her eyes could take in, the potential of what healing could bring. Tammy spent three years traveling the country with improv drama and music teams whose aim was to work with youth. In that time, she was exposed to over 200 churches and host home households, all with varying religious doctrine and denomination. This exposure led her to hold carefully and with honor the differences in human perception and approaches to assigning belief to truth. Tammy went on to complete her undergraduate degree, become Director of Admissions to a good size student body, open a successful mortgage company, and develop a curriculum called Financial Foundations for Life, a program for free financial education that was offered on weekends to the public.
REAL WORLD LESSONS
In 2013, Tammy traveled to Kenya, Africa for two and a half months with her sister. They wanted to see for themselves what the local needs truly were when not portrayed across continents through a particular lens of agenda, how those needs were or were not being met, and what solutions for greater outcomes might be possible. Tammy saw horrific realities of living environments and illness, and had the wool pulled over her eyes more than once, but the experience was ultimately life changing. Tammy had the opportunity to work with villages on simple principles, like collaboration, that would allow them, when working together, to arrange transportation to get antibiotics when one of them became sick. Collaboration was also introduced as a solution with the women in villages with regard to maximizing profit from microloans. These women, who alone had a low ceiling on what they could achieve with a single duka (shop), when small groups of them collaborated, divided responsibilities, and tried trusting one another to carry the weight of their task for the group, increased their financial outcomes exponentially.
DARING TO TRY SOLUTIONS
Tammy also had the opportunity to work for six weeks with a school of 260 orphaned children. This school could only house 25 of them, and had arranged for various shelters in the surrounding villages up to 10 miles away. The children were in need of shoes, the desks were collapsing, there was no running water. The children were given one meal a day of rice, and on some days maybe beans. The principle, Pastor Joel, confided that their most pressing challenge was that they were seeing many children graduate, only to have nowhere to go. “They don’t belong to anyone,” Joel said. “They have an education, but if they can’t go on to college, we have just turned out, into the village, an educated homeless young person.” Tammy began to work with the school on strategies to build self-sufficiency rather than being reliant on one-time donations. She worked with Joel to write a Vocational Program plan, that could be implemented, at no upfront cost to the school. It entailed partnering with top duka owners in the vicinity, who were skilled in the areas of beading and woodwork, and who were active and competitive in the local marketplace. The school would propose a trade of supplies, and a batch of finished product, in exchange for weekly training of the top two grades. A phase plan was drawn up from there. Initially this idea was met with resistance because the educational mindset in Kenya, is one of credentials, not of teaching for trade, and it does not place a high value on vocational training. However, as of January 2017, the program is in its 4th year of success. Children are now graduating with options for their futures, and the school is generating funds to operate, as well as self-producing resources when new bunk beds and desks are needed. Tammy is working currently to help generate more simple, solution-focused programs like this, in Kenya and in other countries.
GRATITUDE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE PAVED THE WAY
Since her time at Harvard, Tammy has been blessed to be around some of the greatest influences in Medical Anthropology and Anthropological Filmography. Tammy had the distinct pleasure of working as Research Assistant to Dr. Arthur Kleinman, and was afforded the opportunity to serve at Partners In Health with Dr. Paul Farmer, working at their headquarters in Boston and on site in the Four Corners Native American lands, with the C.O.P.E. Program (Community Outreach/Patient Empowerment). Tammy also had the chance to study with Dr. Jayasinhji Jhala, professor of Anthropology both at Temple University and at Harvard, from Ahmedabad, India. Dr. Jhala (Bapa, to his students) told Tammy just before her first anthropological venture to spend time with a tribe, “See with your ears and hear with your eyes,” a statement that completely changed her approach to gently entering the village as a participant observer. She learned from all three of these impacting individuals the difference it makes to listen first, the vital necessity of a holistic lens to assess a situation, and the power of offering the distressed individual dignity and empowerment.
PARTNERSHIP WITH GOVERNMENTS AND ENTITIES
Tammy traveled in 2016 to Washington, DC with a close friend, to gain audience with our nation’s representatives and senators from her home state, Washington. Her concerns were regarding potential solutions surrounding volatile situations, specifically at that time, the fact that 6,000 U.S. veterans were about to travel to Standing Rock, to stand as a human shield in front of protesters which could have potentially resulted in one of the most tragic outcomes of our time. Regardless of politics, a bird’s eye view reveals at such a juncture that diffusing a situation provides a better outcome than escalating it. It was asked that the States call for due diligence on the part of the departments responsible for environmental impact studies. It was asked that a review be made to determine what process could be implemented in the future to prevent conflict of this nature. It was asked a call for an immediate halt of violence in any form. There was no protest. There was no taking of a side. There was a distinct participation in connecting and collaborating for solutions. Tammy was invited by all parties with whom she met, to continue to keep in touch, with more solution ideas as the issue progressed. During that trip to DC, Tammy reached out to former U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich, whom invited her to work with him and his wife, Elizabeth, on assembling a team of people focused on forming impacting messaging campaigns, for the purpose of bringing healing to our land, and our people. Tammy is currently working with several organizations, including Harvard and Hive Global, on these efforts to bring peace to humanity through neutral and commonality based messaging.
HEAL THE WORLD
Tammy believes strongly that perception, belief in self and others, and the power of unified messaging are inextricably tied, and that we have a responsibility to our countries, to our world, and to each other, to be better with our words and with our actions. Tammy believes that it serves the public to listen, heavily research, and to participate specifically in messaging that diffuses conflict, and reveals commonalities, validating the individual, and desiring each individual’s collaboration as a contributor to humanity’s destination. She now works to see this happen, bringing all of her experiences and all she’s learned to the table, to collaborate with those change-makers around the globe, each coming alive in their own unique way, so together we can make a ripple of positivity, unity, and betterment for every nation, every land, every person, for our world.
