Welcome to a very special New Years practice with adrienne maree brown, where she'll guide you through writing and casting a spell for yourself and your community to help transition us from 2018 to 2019. You'll need 30-90 minutes, a clear space, something to write on, and something to write with.
** If it helps you to have the prompts adrienne uses visually, scroll all the way to the bottom of these show notes for a list of the key questions for this practice. **
This practice was originally posted last year, so some of you have already done this with us! If you have your spell from last year, we give instructions in the first 10 minutes about how to release and transform it so you are ready to create a new one. (Thank you to Mya Spalter, author of Enchantments, for her recommendations.) If you want to skip right now to where the 2018-19 instructions begin, jump to about 17 minutes in.
You'll also hear us release our COLLECTIVE SPELL FOR 2018 that our community wrote together at this time last year! Follow along to see words and images from our community (it's so awesome) at http://www.healingjustice.org/spell
SHARE YOUR SPELL!
We'd love to hear from you about the spell you've written to transition into the new year. Share a selfie, the full text, one line, or your reflections on what it was like to do this practice on social media with us - let's see what our community is conjuring for 2019! Find us on Instagram @healingjustice, like Healing Justice Podcast on Facebook, and tweet at us @hjpodcast on Twitter.
