    Five Things You're Doing That

    Five Things You're Doing That

    Jenny and Tait discuss the topic of forgiveness. This was the topic this week at Rebel Human. All the classes were crafted around the topic. Tait and Jenny share the things that came up in their own journey of exploring forgiveness. 
    Tait explains what thing Jenny is doing that is creeping her out. She also reads The Prayer of St. Francis and talks about the deep excavation that AA does around forgiveness. She also shares how she can be atheist and still use these prayers. Tait has been sober for 20 years and shares a bit about her earlier work around forgiveness supported by AA. 
    Jenny reads the email she wrote to the community on forgiveness.

    How Are The Kids Going to Get Through This?

    How Are The Kids Going to Get Through This?

    Jenny and Tait talk about the program they are building to support school districts this Fall. As schools scramble, working day and night to prepare, they also acknowledge the programming holes. Additionally, we now know the toll that daily e-learning can take on kids. School systems don’t have the infrastructure to provide high quality supplemental instruction. We want to help. We’ve worked out the kinks around digital asynchronous learning. 
    They talk about all the amazing teachers they’ve brought in to build the program, from a dancer who toured with Beyonce, Ashley Rockwell, to James Beard Grant Winner, Jasmine Sheth, to a recording artist, Jess Godwin, who has taught 40,000 people to write their song. 

    They give a sneak peak of this new programming for schools and explain how it will get the kids inspired, off their screens to explore, and begin creating instead of consuming.

    The Baker, a Butterfly, and the Slower Path

    The Baker, a Butterfly, and the Slower Path

    We are excited to have Ellen King on the show today, founder of Hewn. Hewn is a bakery that Ellen started out of her condo. 

    Ellen talks about the ways she is a Rebel Human! 

    In the beginning, she delivered bread with her 3 year old son on their way to preschool with their Burley brimming with loaves. It is now a household name in Evanston and beyond. 

    Everything at Hewn is made in-house, from scratch daily. Ellen tells the story of her winding path to baking bread and how it helped her through depression. 

    If she had medicated herself, or ignored her depression, she may not have jumped into bread baking with the intensity and dedication that she did. She may not have found herself, her gift, her business, and her community. She has been sharing her gift and feeding the community for years, and we are grateful.
    The word hewn—which means to give form or shape with heavy cutting blows by hand—is a way to connect the past with the future. In a time of big box stores and large chains, Hewn is a return back to a smaller, independently owned and operated bakery.

    After The Pause, Finding Rebel Human Again

    After The Pause, Finding Rebel Human Again

    Jenny and Tait took their last episode, “Race to Nowhere” to heart and paused last week. They discuss what they did during that time of pausing their output of content, their new signature Rebel Human Training class, and their new assessment. 


    They share their latest funny about how until 3:00pm, Tait is all science, then when the clock strikes, she turns into woo-woo witchy.


    They haven’t been singing enough lately, so it’s time to bring back their closeout song. Please send your requests for which song they should sing at the end of next episode.

    Race to Nowhere

    Race to Nowhere

    Many people are racing back to the lives they had before. The stay-at-home order during the pandemic gave us an opportunity to slow down our lives and strip them down to what was most important.  
    We don’t need to rush right back into the lives we had before mindlessly. There is a reckoning in our country, along with our own personal reckoning. Tait and Jenny talk about how they are honing the Rebel Human curriculum and brand awareness as they reimagine the future.

    Reckoning and Reimagining

    Reckoning and Reimagining

    Jenny and Tait discuss the reckoning that’s happening, unveiling the truth of the past and looking at our current socio-political structure. They share the things that white people shouldn’t say anymore and talk about the tearing down and rebuilding they went through the day before taping this episode. In that tearing down, they discuss how to embody the alternatives, completely let go of the current state, and how Jenny entertained the alternate reality of selling widgets. They discuss reform vs. transformation and how transformation is a reimagining, a brand new way of being in the world.

Great

This show is a great companion to their Rebel human wellness platform focusing on yoga, mindfulness and meditation afaik. I’m not a member currently but appreciate they offer lots of free resources. For the show - Jenny’s history in yoga and Tate’s academic and creative turned open-hearted student is a great combo. The show is basically two friends have a real and ranging conversation about their work together and as individuals. Rebel human is a platform focused on helping us all move through this world. Like all Rebel human content the technical quality is excellent. Highly recommended!

Good company!

I just feel like I’m hanging with friends. Really self-aware and empathetic friends. It’s a lovely hang!

Love Jenny and Tait!

I am new to Rebel Human TV and have loved every bit of it. I am writing this review because I want you to discover Rebel Human, and I hope, find what you need physically and/or spiritually through the practices Jenny and Tait share. Jenny’s kundalini classes on Rebel Human TV have been my secret to coping with this pandemic. I listen to this podcast as a companion to the classes. Jenny and Tait are sincere, fun, thoughtful and grounded as they share their life experiences and stories.
