    61. How to Reclaim Your Sensual Self (Live)

    How do you reclaim your sensuality? Ev’Yan and a few special guests answer this and other body-minded questions during a live event that happened a few weeks back called “Reclaim Your Sensual Self”. During this event, Ev’Yan was in conversation with Brianne Patrice, Jimanekia Eborn, and Shadeen Francis, and they each speak about their unique and personal experiences of connecting to themselves, what sensuality means and looks like to them, and some practices you can use to reclaim your sensual self. They also answer a few questions from the audience—one about sensuality in relationships, the other about sensuality and chronic pain.

    59. Decolonize Your Gender

    59. Decolonize Your Gender

    What assumptions do you make about your gender? In this one, Ev’Yan speaks to Dayna Lynn Nuckolls (The People’s Oracle) about what it looks like to decolonize gender and why we probably need to decolonize ours. They both speak about the binary and how harmful our gendered ideas of masculinity and femininity are, how language and labels flatten us, and the ways indigenous cultures have viewed gender and gender roles. Dayna also explains what it really means to decolonize something. At the end, Ev’Yan offers questions to get you curious about your own gender to help you parse through what was shaken up in this episode.
