My name is Daria and I am a commitment to ending intergenerational cycles of violence. At Accountability Mapping, I teach Transformative Justice skills through the body.
I created Accountability Mapping to build our collective capacity for accountability in a transformative way. I was already doing this work - for those I love who harmed me, for myself when I've harmed those I love. I offer this experiment as a culmination of my own fragile successes, spectacular failures and ongoing learning in self-accountability. I want to share what I know because we need tools now, we needed them yesterday.
As a transgender person, I understand the body as a site of possibility and transformation. Accountability Mapping synthesizes Transformative Justice principles with Qi Gong practices and somatic exploration. The body becomes a doorway on a journey of change - moving you toward alignment with what matters.
I am a Russian and Chinese-Kazakhstani refugee and settler raised on Ohlone land (San Francisco Bay Area). I am a survivor of physical, emotional, religious, sexual and child sexual abuse. I am Autistic, chronically ill and disabled. My pronouns are he/him. You can learn more about me and my work on the Emergent Strategy Podcast, season 2 episode 6.
Thank you for your support.
In 2008, I was a Harm Reduction counselor at the Berkeley Free Clinic. I found myself at the Critical Resistance conference on abolishing the prison industrial complex where I learned about transformative justice for the first time. My whole body said - "YES - THIS."
In 2010 I attended a transformative justice training led by GenerationFive, an organization working to end child sexual abuse in five generations. I became a founding member of the Bay Area Transformative Justice Collective, a project initiated by Mia Mingus in 2011, and helped build out its structure over the course of three years. In 2012, I began training with Generative Somatics - a transformative justice-based healing and social change methodology.
After medically transitioning in 2017, I could finally realize my childhood dream of becoming a dancer - as practice of living in the aliveness and power of my body.
In 2020 I began deepening connection with my ancestral lineages. I studied Medical Mediumship with Dr. Jennifer Lisa Vest, and the Yìjīng (I-Ching) and Chinese Bazi Astrology with Yu Hua Meng. In 2021, I completed the Medical Qi Gong program at AIMC ( and I strongly recommend studying with an Asian or POC practitioner outside of an institution instead).
In 2023, I launched Red Rabbit Astrology, where I help BIPOC chart their own destiny through BaZi astrology. You can hear more about me and my work on the Emergent Strategy Podcast, season 2 episode 4.
I have a BA in Public Health from UC Berkeley, with a focus on Community Health.
