    Ceremony with Magdalena Garcia

    Ceremony with Magdalena Garcia

    “Ceremony is the point in time when we all know it’s time to stop . . . and honor something or someone. Ceremony is the time and the place. And ritual, those are the elements within ceremony that get us deeper, that actually encourage us to pause and find meaning. So the elements of ritual: things like symbolism, the activation of the senses . . . all of those things get us to here, now, which then helps us with the other element—what is the story underneath the story?”
    Magdalena Garcia joins me in today’s episode about Ceremony.
    Magdalena is a mother, educator, writer, birth story listener, parenting coach and ceremony facilitator.
    We discuss the religion gap, tools for creating ceremonies, birthdays, transitions, birth, teenagers, and holidays.

    Emotional Labor with Rose Hackman

    Emotional Labor with Rose Hackman

    “What happens when you don’t teach a whole group of people to understand their emotions is that they become extremely emotionally dysregulated . . . it then tends to be a woman who is tasked with modulated that partner’s expression, especially when there are kids involved and you’re trying to be a buffer between that temper—that mood—and your children.”
    Rose Hackman joins me in today’s episode about Emotional Labor.
    Rose is a British journalist and the author of Emotional Labor.
    We discuss what emotional labor is, how it develops, the problem of it being invisible and unvalued, how men are also harmed by patriarchy, how to make our relationships more egalitarian, and what changes we could make in society to value emotional labor.

    Consent with Fran Liberatore

    Consent with Fran Liberatore

    “I believe that all humans have a right to ownership over their body, over their mental, spiritual, emotional autonomy and consent is kind of a way to ensure that it’s not just us being autonomous everywhere but we are also respecting other people’s boundaries and right to be autonomous. My autonomy ends where yours begins.”

    Fran is a writer, podcaster, Masters student and ex-educator, as well as an unschooling mother of two children.
