March 16, 2020

It's here - our new name for Healing Justice Podcast!

We are Irresistible -- a community of practice in collective healing and social change.

Together, we celebrate the many traditions of movement leaders, cultural workers, and spiritual teachers who remind us to embody the liberation we are pursuing and who show us that our movements for justice can and must be expansive, vibrant, and fully alive. Because we are so much more than resistance. We are irresistible.

Listen to the next episode, "Becoming Irresistible," to hear the story and meaning behind our new name.

All quotes heard are from past episodes of Healing Justice Podcast. Thank you to our incredible guests and featured voices: Kate Werning, Jamie Laurie, Alice Wong, Tricia Hersey, adrienne maree brown, Phillip Agnew, Rhiana Anthony, Ije Ude, Eroc Arroyo Montano, Dori Midnight, & Bea Anderson.

“Should we cancel?” Coronavirus, travel & organizing

Should we be cancelling our events and travel due to COVID-19?

In this mini bonus feature, we expand upon our previous episode "Coronavirus: Wisdom from a Social Justice Lens" to bring you advice about how to adapt your travel and gatherings. We share from the perspective of organizers and folks participating in social justice movements, and the decisions we need to make about our own plans and plans for our groups, teams, and campaigns.

Host Kate Werning is joined by Maryse Mitchell-Brody to hear their recommendations about how we move responsibly and with care during this time. 

Access Maryse's guide for considerations for event planners and organizers, our full list of social justice Coronavirus resources, a transcript of this conversation, and our previous episode at http://www.healingjustice.org/podcast/corona

2020 Visioning: a New Years Practice with Alicia Garza

December 30, 2019
Alicia Garza, principal at Black Futures Lab and co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, offers a visioning practice to guide us through the transition from 2019 into 2020 with focused personal & political power.
 
You'll need 30 minutes, and ideally a printed version of the accompanying visual guide (though it also works with a piece of paper and something to write with). This practice can be done alone or in a group. 
 
Download the visual guide, read Alicia's full bio, and access the transcript at http://healingjustice.org/podcast/2020
