In this conversation, we talk about the critical importance of the body in anti-racist work and social justice. We dive into dance, psychedelic medicine, our ancestors and the possibility of collective liberation.
What you will learn:
The limits of traditional activism, and the need for somatic social justice to repattern areas of dominance and oppression in the body
The need for white people to pivot from guilt, shame, and white saviorism into a place of collective liberation for everyone plus the significance of white on white violence
How dance has been colonized in the West with its focus on how it looks and why shifting into a model of dance as reclamation, pleasure, and reconnection with ancestors is a powerful medicine for healing. Go on, dance like nobody’s watching!
How so many Western New Age Movements are guilty of spiritual bypassing and how conscious communities can do the needed work of social change by dissolving ego
The ways in which drug policy has been a tool for creating fear and racism; the importance of harm reduction and why the process of building trust will take time
