Conversations diving deep into our longing for meaningful community
The systems we uphold - Ravideep Kaur
In this episode of Revillaging, Adele Jarrett-Kerr chats with Ravideep Kaur, a presence coach and anti-oppression consultant who lives in Scotland and invites others to mindful activism. Her special focus is on decolonisation and reclaiming power and her approach is underpinned by her Sikh spirituality.
We talk about activism and activation as the still, ordinary and contemplative actions that change the world through authentic connection with the people around us, like our children. The idea that big equates effective is colonial.
Conversation touch points include:
Listening to the body’s wisdom
Questioning why we’re in a rush and why we’re being rushed
The challenges of discussing complex topics on social media
Our need to be “the best in class”
The invitation to be vulnerable
The role of spirituality in our activation

Trust Yourself - Essie Richards on unschooling
In this episode Essie Richards talks with Adele Jarrett-Kerr about how deconditioning from religion and deschooling has supported her self-trust, and changed the way she accesses community. Essie is an unschooling parent of two, an intersectional environmental activist and founder of a project that provides food for people experiencing food poverty. This is a conversation about shame, finding our way of being in the world, how we learn to heal and to deal with conflict, and about meeting our own needs. Essie's story is such a gift, whether or not you're a parent or whatever education path you and your people are taking.

Like a Refreshing drink
I found revillaging through Nomad podcasts and it’s my new favourite. The guests are interesting and openly share about their passion, struggles and musings on how they are going about loving the world, their family and themselves. Adele choice of discussions have inspired my heart to dream and my mind racing with new possibilities. Wonderful to see strength and compassion in your questions. Big thumbs up!!
I love the broad range and reach of this podcast where you can listen and take something perhaps unexpected away. The guests are given loads of space to speak and it feels like the host is really listening which is refreshing. Definitely recommend.
