Kindreds Picks: Eloheh Center and The Intuitive Way
On Kindreds Picks, we discuss some of our favorite recommendations that we didn’t have time to get to in our regular episode.
Ashley’s Pick: Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice
After studying the Lenten guide Drawing Closer to Creator and Creation: And Indigenous Journey Through Lent, Ashley shares about the Eloheh Center, co-founded by Edith and Randy Woodley in 1999 out of concern that neither the government nor the church was addressing the many needs in Native American communities.
The Woodleys believe that our response to climate change should be rooted in learning from those who have long practiced a value for creation and listened to the voice of Creator in this area. For decades, Randy and Edith Woodley have cultivated Eloheh as a community, farm, seed bank, and learning center. For over 30 years, the Woodleys have been teaching Native and non-Native peoples to deepen their commitment to preserving humanity’s role as good earth-keepers by understanding Creator’s invitation to harmony and shalom. Through their summits, camps, ceremony, conferences and teachings, the Woodleys offer an opportunity for all to learn a new way to live on the land and respond to the climate crisis.

Katey’s Pick: The Intuitive Way by Penney Pierce
Similar in style to The Artist's Way, The Intuitive Way is a workbook with lessons and exercises designed to help you hone in in on and develop your inner wisdom. It has questions to journal, meditations to practice, and free writing prompts all around how we experience that sense of knowing. For example, the book asks you to think about the way that you recall one of your favorite experiences in the past. Do you hear it most? See it? Feel it? Even smell it?
If you’re looking for something to help you tune into your inner guide, pick up The Intuitive Way.
What does community look like when we can’t be in person? How do we see community changing and evolving in our lives right now, and how might we reimagine community for the future? We talk about the upsides and downsides of virtual community, navigating work online, and our hopes for how the lessons of COVID-19 will shape us for the better.

Kindreds Picks: Such a Fun Age and Little Fires Everywhere
On Kindreds Picks, we discuss some of our favorite recommendations that we didn’t have time to get to in our regular episode. This episode we discuss Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid and the Hulu adaption of Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.
The Cult of Productivity
Have you been questioning the place of productivity in your life or in our culture as a whole? Is productivity something you cling to or repel from in times of stress? Ashley and Katey are rethinking their relationships with getting things done and how self-quarantining has impacted their feelings about our cultural obsession with output and efficiency. We explore the ways that white supremacy culture show up in our work and faith circles in ways that we often fail to recognize and share a bit about the thoughtful leaders who are showing us a new way of being in the world that isn't all about being productive.

In This Together
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, we take a time out from our regular podcast schedule to talk about how we're coping (and not), how we're stayed connected with ourselves and one another in the age of physical distancing, and how we're more committed than ever to dismantling the patriarchy.

Soulmates or Soul Families?
Do you believe in soul mates? In this episode we explore the notion of soul mates, both the more common understandings in terms of romantic partnerships and the more expansive ideas of kindred spirits and soul families.

Hit a chord with me
Oh my gosh, the quote that you read about the word "blessed" and the problems that come with it (associated with unearned privilege) really resonated with me. I've felt kind of odd about that word and couldn't put my finger on why. Thanks for that discussion. - C. Levin
Love this podcast.
As a Christian who is constantly learning about social justice, this podcast makes me feel less alone in the world. There aren’t many spaces where I can find Christians who agree with me about LGBTQ+ issues, reproductive rights, racism etc. but Katey and Ashley are unapologetic about their views. Their episode about diet culture was a revelation! Thanks for showing me I still have a space in this faith, folks.
Important informative and fun!
I have been listening to this podcast since it started and love it!! While most topics are aimed at women, men like myself can learn a lot about the opposite sex! Katey and Ashley have crafted a podcast with the perfect balance between conversation, introspection, and information sharing. If you want to give them a try, I recommend #9 “What it means to be white”. It’s an honest look into the racial divide in our country and how white privilege effects us all. Give a listen...you’ll love it!!
