Grateful for the honest & powerful wisdom

A member of my chosen familia encouraged me to listen to the Conflict and Transformation episodes, and I feel blessed that I did. The wisdom shared by Belia deeply inspired me and affirmed me to continue to pursue my journey with somatics. Grateful to Mijente for creating this platform that centers nuestra cultura, salud and healing.

Conflict and Transformation

I am a white, queer woman, humanist christian and work as a hospital chaplain and educator-in-training of future chaplains/spiritual care providers. This episode nourishes me personally and professionally informs my work co-facilitating an aspirational, inclusive learning environment that welcomes honest, compassionate confrontation but not abuse. I will be listening again, sharing with fellow educators, and already have used the mantras “nothing is wrong here” and “no one’s worth is at stake here.” What a relief! And energetic shift! Given that our inherent worth is not at stake, what can we learn from this encounter? How can we heal and grow together? That framing changes everything. Thank you! (And thank you to Alicia Garza for sharing on her IG page)
