WINTER SPIRIT CAMP HOST & FACILITATOR -Phoenix (Sabree Miller) was born in the Bronx NY in 1989. He has one brother and two sisters, and is the baby among them. He also has a host of other siblings through adoption. Phoenix has been on the honor roll twice in junior high school in Queens, NY. Some of his interests are video gaming, music (oh… how he loves music!) and Aunt Bertha (I'm 10000000 years old!) He has a one-year old cat named Starfire, and his favorite quote is: “If you could see into the future, would you be looking at the past?”

Phoenix became homeless in early 2007, and stayed on the streets of NYC, until he found a shelter named Sylva’s Place.  In the fall of 2007, he heard about Easton Mountain and attended Queer Spirit Camp. During that visit, he took time to reflect and reconnect with himself. Soon after, in 2010 Phoenix had his first apartment in NYC, where he lived for 6 years. In 2012 he decided to volunteer his time to Easton as a token of gratitude and is a graduate of EMLA (Easton Mountain Leadership Academy) class of 2014. In 2016 he attended the first W.P.C (White Privilege Conference) in the East Coast, that took place in Philadelphia, and has since facilitated workshops based on this experience. Phoenix moved to Easton Mountain in February 2016, and during that summer he became a fulltime resident. Through hard work he became the volunteer coordinator in September of 2017.

He will be facilitating a group discussion based on his experiences with White Privilege and a workshop he calls Caveman Music!
