    Deep Liberation: A Conversation With Langston Kahn

    In this conversation, we speak about embodiment, and Langston’s perspective of embodiment as the willingness to be in a state of flux, and change, and to not get stuck on one story of who we are. 
    We explore the practice of Focusing, which Langston learned from his mom, and how the principles of Focusing support Langston in being in relationship with the more than human world in shamanic practice.  We talk about animism, ancestral healing, trauma and more.
