    Copal & Divinity School - Bonus Episode

    Copal & Divinity School - Bonus Episode

    In this bonus episode I offer critiques of colonial systems and academic assumptions about religion and medicine. I share a bit about my research and experience of an unfolding relationship with copal. The decolonial healing path continues to draw me in. I am deeply grateful and increasingly aware of all that I need to un-learn and re-learn.

    This is a project for a wonderful course I took this spring at Harvard Divinity School called "Religion and Healing: An Anthropological Perspective."

    I am really grateful for a chance to TALK. IT. OUT. (in the quiet, dark covid-19 cave). Because so much of this year of online school has been in very isolated conditions. So I get a bit nerdy. I'd love to hear what you think!

HaleyNisson ,

Beautiful. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing your work with me and all others hearing your words and the words of those you invite into your digital/online sharing space. I identify as a white person who benefits from colonization. I also identify as a healer of the earth.

Diva Cindy ,

Love your message

So grateful for your creativity and changing the narrative. I'm working on decolonizing the way we engage children in their education. Didn't realize that's what I was doing. It begins at the bginning. When we honor children by healing ourselves so we are truly present with them we can interrupt the disconnection and create the sense of belonging and connectedness we need to heal this world.
