Practice: Radical Gratitude Spell (by adrienne maree brown, read by Fhatima Paulino)

A 5-minute practice to show gratitude for yourself and others on the path to liberation.

The only way that feels appropriate to end this first, long season of Healing Justice Podcast, is with GRATITUDE.

Thank you to adrienne maree brown for granting us permission to read this powerful spell, and thank you to Fhatima Paulino (of epsiode 15) for reading it with such kindness and sending us out with a blessing.

radical gratitude spell
by adrienne maree brown
read aloud with permission

a spell to cast upon meeting a stranger, comrade or friend working for social and/or environmental justice and liberation:

you are a miracle walking
i greet you with wonder
in a world which seeks to own
your joy and your imagination
you have chosen to be free,
every day, as a practice.
i can never know
the struggles you went through to get here,
but i know you have swum upstream
and at times it has been lonely

i want you to know
i honor the choices you made in solitude
and i honor the work you have done to belong
i honor your commitment to that which is larger than yourself
and your journey
to love the particular container of life
that is you

you are enough
your work is enough
you are needed
your work is sacred
you are here
and i am grateful
