32 Practice: Relational Inclusion with Cedar Landsman of Relational Uprising

June 21, 2018
00:0000:00

Join Cedar Landsman of Relational Uprising in learning how to inquire appreciatively into what we may be inclined to judge, reject, exclude, dismiss, or devalue about another’s experience. We see what new information this brings to us, helping us to see beyond our own entrenched perspective.

This activity is meant to be done in conjunction with a relational storytelling and resonance practice, which creates the necessary support to do this activity well. (To learn Resonance Practice, see Healing Justice Podcast Episode 20 with Mark Fairfield.)

Follow along with this worksheet to really dig in to some supported reflection and also revisit later or share with others: Relational Inclusion Worksheet from Relational Uprising https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Kc4b5qUe-590SudKQ4AirmXQZc47O0La

Download the corresponding conversation (32: Bridging Complexity Collectively) to hear Lucién Demaris & Cedar Landsman of Relational Uprising about individualism as a system of oppression; “heroic” cultures of organizing; indigenous traditions of healing in Ecuador; repairing rupture, suspicion, and judgment; and bridging as a form of increasing our ability to hold complexity in our movements.

31 Practice: Heart Over Head with Teo Drake

June 14, 2018
00:0000:00

Join Teo Drake in this incredibly simple embodied exercise to practice privileging your heart above your head.

The questions Teo asks in this practice are:

  • To whom do I belong?
  • Who holds me?
  • Who am I in love with?
  • Who do I carry with me at my heart center?
  • What can my heart come home to?

There are lots of reasons that different versions of the yoga pose Balasana (Child’s Pose) that Teo offers might not work in your body. Here’s one option of an instructional video offering various options: https://bodypositiveyoga.com/modifications-for-childs-pose-balasana/ And please, be empowered to find any position that does work for your body to connect with a sensation of privileging your heart above your head -- either literally or energetically. Your practice is all yours!

Download the corresponding conversation (31 Intention & Impact: Showing Up Right-Sized) to hear Teo talk about the relationship between intention and impact, what it means to be right-sized, the rage of coming of age during the AIDS epidemic,  Being Trans and HIV+ poster child, having a quiet nature AND fighting white supremacy, and risk as a devotional act.

ABOUT OUR GUEST

Teo Drake is a spiritual activist, an educator, a practicing Buddhist and yogi, and an artisan who works in wood and steel. Teo says that as a blue collar queer-identified trans man living with AIDS, he has 101 reasons to not want to be present in his own skin. The physical and spiritual practice of yoga and Buddhist traditions made it possible to begin to heal and feel at home in his own body. When he isn’t helping spiritual spaces be more welcoming and inclusive of queer and transgender people or helping queer and trans folks find authentic spiritual paths, he can be found teaching martial arts, yoga, and woodworking to children. His writing can be found in the anthology Yoga and Body Image and at the blog Roots Grow the Tree.

29 Practice: Reclaiming Our Names with AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez of Mystic Soul

May 31, 2018
00:0000:00

In this practice, you’re joining AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez of the Mystic Soul Project to learn how to facilitate a Name Reclamation group activity.

You can download the corresponding conversation (episode 29) to hear AnaYelsi talk Indigenous Reclamation with Teresa P Mateus and Ra Mendoza.

--

Here are the instructions for this activity:

When we hear someone's name, what we are really hearing are stories –of origin, of tribes, of ancestors, of healing, and of self-determination. There’s history in names. There are hope, prophecy and an honoring of families in names. They are sacred. While it may not be an act of indigenous reclamation for everyone, intentionally reflecting on one another's name allows us to create a practice of holding all names as sacred and worthy of respect. This activity is a chance to begin cultivating that practice.

  1. You will need a minimum of 15 minutes for this activity
  2. Each participant will need an index card and a writing utensil
  3. Begin by having each person write their name on their index card
  4. Break up into groups of 2
  5. Each person should exchange cards with their partner
  6. Person one will have 3-5 minutes to share their name story with their partner
  7. When person one is finished, their partner will take a moment of silence to write what they heard on the back of the card they received
  8. Switch roles and repeat for the next 3-5 minutes
  9. Before returning to the group, each person will ask their partner if they have permission to share their name story in that space
  10. Come back together as a group and spend 5+ minutes allowing participants to share what they learned
  11. Participants should hold onto the card as something to reflect on during future times of prayer, reflection, or meditation

Remember: Names carry stories and stories belong to the one that experienced. Even if you had permission to share in that space, ask again before sharing someone's story in the future.

*This activity was created by AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez https://browneyedamazon.com/
