43 Practice: Reconnecting with Ourselves with Nora Samaran & Serena Lukas Bhandar

43 Practice: Reconnecting with Ourselves with Nora Samaran & Serena Lukas Bhandar

August 20, 2019

Nora Samaran and Serena Lukas Bhandar, authors of "Turn This World Inside Out: The Emergence of Nurturance Culture," offer us a practice for nurturing our nervous systems and reconnecting with ourselves. This practice can be done alone or in a group, and will require a piece of paper and something to write with, as well as a safe space where you can comfortably quiet your senses and pay internal attention.

The second half of this practice is called Right Brain Left Brain and is adapted from “Don’t Forget to Write” by Brad Wolf & Rebecca Stern of 826 National. The questions Serena poses for this exercise are:
  1. What brings me here today?
  2. What did I dream about last night?
  3. What brings me joy?
  4. What are the words I do not have?

-----------

Listen to the corresponding conversation: In last week's conversation episode with Nora and Serena, we talked about how nurturance culture is the opposite of rape culture, its role in developing healthy relationships, different attachment styles, gender, and how to pursue accountability without shame or excluding people from community. Subscribe/follow on your favorite podcast platform to make sure you don't miss an episode!

42 Practice: The Do-Over with Idelisse Malavé and Joanne Sandler

42 Practice: The Do-Over with Idelisse Malavé and Joanne Sandler

August 6, 2019

In this practice, Joanne and Idelisse offer a writing exercise called "The Do-Over" to help process experiences of bias and discrimination, and to seed creativity and reflection. It connects the personal and political, and can be done alone or in a group. You'll need a piece of paper and something to write with.

-----------

CONVERSATION: Download the episode prior to this one to hear Joanne & Idelisse talk about aging in the movement. They tell us about the secrets of bitchcraft, the importance of friendship and creativity, being unapologetically yourself, trusting yourself and others, tender transparency, the importance of having friends in every decade of life, play, and therapy (well maybe - that last one is contested). Subscribe/follow this podcast to make sure you never miss an entertaining & insightful conversation!

-----------

ABOUT OUR GUESTS:

Idelisse Malavé, 71, has been honing her bitchcraft for decades. A working class Puerto Rican immigrant raised in a middle-class, mostly Jewish, Brooklyn neighborhood, she graduated from Columbia Law School, defying expectations of who and what she could be to become a fierce social justice activist. After practicing public interest law in the 70s and 80s, she went on to lead progressive organizations – as Vice President of the Ms. Foundation and Executive Director of Tides Foundation – and wrote two books, Mother Daughter Revolution (Bantam) and Latino Stats (The New Press). Her motto these days is: “If it pleases me, I will.”

Joanne Sandler, 67, is on an endless journey to find her bitchy voice. She’s written articles and books like Gender at Work (Routledge), How Feminists Change Bureaucracies and Bureaucracies Change Feminists (Oxford Press), Women’s Rights Have No Country (OpenDemocracy). A lifelong feminist, Joanne was ‘institutionalized’ for nearly two decades (as Deputy Executive Director of the UN Development Fund for Women-UNIFEM -- and many other women’s rights organizations). She’s traveled to more than 65 countries and now consults with Gender at Work. Her lifelong motto still applies ”Always leave while you’re still having a good time!”

Together, Idelisse and Joanne host a podcast called Two Old Bitches. Learn more at http://www.twooldbitches.com
