    Finding Refuge: Michelle Cassandra Johnson

    58:02

    This week, my dear friend, Michelle Cassandra Johnson is back to help us tend to the shattered parts of ourselves so that we can embrace our wholeness and do the work of healing the collective heart. In the podcast, she says, what's needed in this moment isn’t to get back to normal or to get back to work or to get back being busy and productive. What's needed is to acknowledge what we’ve gone through and what has been lost. We must feel in order to heal. Her new book, Finding Refuge: Heartwork for Healing Collective Grief, is a radical invitation for those of us who feel brokenhearted, helpless, confused, powerless, and desperate in this moment to embrace the lost art of grieving as an essential component of healing. This book moved me and made me feel new depths and dimensions of my grief that I honestly didn't know was there. It made me reflect on how I, like many others, have attempted to manage my grief behind closed doors - alone and isolated. But Michelle reminds us that we don’t grieve in isolation in the same way that we don’t heal in isolation. This podcast is a beautiful and joyful reminder that despite the difficult and uncertain times we are facing - we are resilient together and have the capacity to meet this moment with an open heart that can heal us forward.

    Rest is Revolutionary: Tracee Stanley

    56:32

    Kicking off this season is the powerful Tracee Stanley, yoga teacher, author and who’s new book Radiant Rest: Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation & Awakened Clarity, has been a lifeline for me in the last couple months. In the book, Tracee says that rest is our birthright, and when we are able to embrace that - we begin to see how we have been asleep in our lives. It is an essential practice in a moment when dominant culture is telling us to get back to normal and perform being woke. We practice rest so that we can remain awake - awake to the reality of our interdependence and collective survival. Connect with Tracee StanleyVisit her websiteFollow her on Instagram at @tracee_stanleyBuy her book, Radiant Rest: Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation & Awakened ClarityIf this episode resonates with you, we’d love for you to take a screenshot and tag us on Instagram stories @ctznwell, @kkellyyoga and @tracee_stanleyJoin CTZNWELL on PatreonFollow CTZNWELL on InstagramSign up for CTZNWELL’s weekly email WELLREAD+ Transcription(read transcription here)

    1:26:30

    This conversation is really timely as it explores how we reach for each other across distance so that we can build beloved communities in these unique times. It features Minister Lauren Cunningham, Francisca Porchas Coronado, Rev Brandon Wrencher and Minister leea allen and offers a really cool behind the scenes perspective by leaders who are innovating and adapting community spaces for healing and grieving and transformation.One of the things Lauren reminds us of is that “there is no end to what a living world will demand of you”. Even while our presence is reduced to screens and keystrokes, muting and unmuting - we are still alive and the world demands we live. Imagining new ways of being together and healing together and growing together is what this moment is calling for. And this episode is a good start.Connect with Reverend Lauren Cunningham:Follow Lauren on InstagramConnect with Francisca Porchas Coronado: Follow Francisca on InstagramCheck out La Cura PodcastConnect with Minister leea allen: Follow leea on twitterConnect with Reverend Brandon Wrencher: Follow Rev Brandon on FacebookCheck out Good Neighbor MovementConnect with Faith Matters Network: Follow them on instagram @faithmattersnetworkCheck out the Daring Compassion CourseDonate to their Nurture Brave Space fundraising campaignIf this episode resonates with you, we’d love for you to take a screenshot and tag us on Instagram stories @ctznwell @kkellyyoga @electricladymsj @franciscaporchas @leeavallen @goodneighbormovement @livin_as_laurenSubscribe to CTZN PodcastJoin CTZNWELL on PatreonFollow CTZNWELL on InstagramSign up for CTZNWELL’s weekly email WELLREAD(read transcript)

    Can Our Movements Be The Healing: Xan West, Kazu Haga, LCF8M, Carinne Luck

    1:30:51

    This episode is from a three-part series called “How We Get Through: Collective Resilience in a World on Fire” from our friends at Faith Matters Network. It aired in the Fall of 2020 which was a time in our country where we were literally on fire - California and other parts of the country were raging during the time of this series. But we were also amidst many pandemics at once - the pandemic of covid, the pandemic that is structural and cultural racism, the pandemic of record inequality and of course the pandemic that is climate change.  And what is different about this series - besides the fact that it features brilliant movement leaders - is that it explores not just what we DO in the face of this fire but how we BE together; how we keep going and meet whatever comes next so that we can bring about the future that we all deserve. This particular conversation featuring Kazu Haga, Xan West, organizers from the chilean movement La Coordinadora Feminista 8M and Carinne Luck explores how movements in and of themselves are healing - how healing has been woven in from building relationships in small teams to exploring how to create containers for rage and healing in the streets and bring in intentional joy. It is a provocative conversation about reclaiming our power to heal ourselves and one another.

    Being Human: adrienne maree brown, Prentis Hemphill, Sydney Morgan

    1:26:40

    This episode comes from a series hosted by our friends at Faith Matters Network called How to Get Through: collective resilience in a world on fire. It was designed to prepare social justice movements to weave healing and care into our lives and work before, during and after crises and big “movement moments” like this one. This first conversation with Sidney Morgan, adrienne maree brown, Prentis Hemphill and Micky Scottbey Jones is about how we actually do the work of being human together - flawed and all, mistakes, conflict and pain included. How do we survive these times? How do we navigate conflict? How do we live into accountability? How do we take care of each other along the way. It is a powerful and brave exploration of the practice of being change, not just doing change. And it is essential medicine for this moment. Enjoy.

    Decolonizing Yoga: Susanna Barkataki

    1:43:15

    This conversation has been a long time coming for all of us who are navigating both wellness practice and social justice. Because it is not enough to just do the right thing in this moment, we have to go back to the roots to heal and repair what has been broken and violated. And we have with us today a true teacher in that work. Susanna Barkataki is an Indian yoga practitioner, teacher, and now author of the recent book Embrace Yoga’s Roots: Courageous Ways to Deepen Your Yoga Practice. In this episode, we talk about how to personally and collectively navigate the violent history of colonization and appropriation, how to show up for each other in solidarity and how to live into the wisdom of spiritual practice. This conversation gave me so much to reflect on and reckon with around what it means to truly embrace and embody this practice and live your life according to its values. And tune in to the end because Susanna gives us the gift of the Sacred Pause - a practice and gesture that can help us meet this moment and breathe into the next with grace and courage

    Practicing Politics: Nelini Stamp, Rev angel Kyodo williams, Anasa Troutman, Carinne Luck

    1:33:30

    This episode on practicing politics features Nelini Stamp from Working Families Party, Rev angel Kyodo williams author of Radical Dharma, Anasa Troutman of the Big We and Carinne Luck, a well known organizer and activist.What I learned from this conversation is that building a politics of care is multidimensional. It’s telling a new story of who we are and who we are becoming, it’s building community depth and power wherever you are, it’s going up against old systems of oppression even while we dream up new systems of liberation. And it’s doing the internal work of decolonizing and deconstructing our own beliefs so that we can live into our greatest potential together.This is the practice of politics that is internal and external, that is individual and collective, that is cultural and systemic, that is tactical and transformative, that is resistant and imaginative. And as Nelini reminds us, we can be all those things. And we need to.
