    Soul Crush Ep. 27 Shakti + Healing through the Performative Arts with Faith Shakti Heyliger

    Soul Crush Ep. 27 Shakti + Healing through the Performative Arts with Faith Shakti Heyliger

    Join along with Soul Crush this week in sitting down with poetess and artist, Faith Shakti Heyliger.
     
    Faith is a Harlem-born poetess that was able to take her childhood of growing up in an ashram-community and navigate how the world treated her when this lifestyle wasn’t accepted.
     
    In being given the name of the goddess Shakti, Faith has taken her life to explore and live the duality of what it means to be divine and human; and Faith shares this through her performative arts and poems that she curates. 
     
    Adriana and Faith discuss the power of performing, how chanting and meditation plays a role in our ability to express ourselves more freely, and ways to support one another as artists and sensitive souls who FEEL IT ALL.
     
    Things that are brought up in this conversation:
     

    Duality of being Human & Divine.

    Who is Shakti?

    “Fear is fuel”; learning how to harness fear’s power to discover ourselves fully.

    How the creative process can be such medicine in today’s world.

    Ways that performative arts can give space for us to explore the shadow sides of us that we may normally be scared to face.

    Physical embodiment when it comes to writing, art, and other forms of the creative process.

    Soul Crush Ep.26 The Good Fight on the Full Moon with David Harshada Wagner

    Soul Crush Ep.26 The Good Fight on the Full Moon with David Harshada Wagner

    Join us this week with spiritual teacher, author & artist David Harshada Wagner. 
    In this episode, David and Adriana Rizzolo celebrate and relate this Full Moon in Aries season to today's overwhelmed society, the f**kery of leadership seen today, and how this all can actually relate and be addressed in learning and delving deeper into the Bhagavad Gita.
     
    Things that are brought up in this conversation:

    Why the Bhagavad Gita is the most "seminal texts" of the Indian-Hindu traditions and how it relates and shines light on today's climate. 


     


    Leadership & F**kery.  How these times of watching our leaderships fail is causing an overwhelming feeling of disempowerment as citizens are unsure of what they can do during these times. 


     


    "What is our Good Fight to be Fighting Right now?" Taking the idea of "fighting a good fight" internally: of finding your individual purpose and then confronting your inner enemies.


    Dharma and Swadharma: the importance of knowing your purpose right now.  Knowing that if we don't decide, others out there are more than willing to try and find that for you.


     


    Warrior Consciousness.  A willingness to not be guided by fear.  Learning to let go of the hate and anger surrounded in fear and using these instead to guide you to address your inner enemies.

    Angela sharing what the Creative Resilience Project in NYC is. 


     


    Ways we can connect to our ancestral pain.  To sit in this and then move from that awareness towards micro & macro healing towards joy.

    Things that are brought up in this conversation:

    Bravely facing the hard conversations and asking the questions of why we have allowed silence, passiveness, ignorance and avoidance into our lives & how these barriers are holding us back.

    Two embodiment practices (for opening and closing the conversation) to ground + set an intention of social justice and truth for all ready to receive.


     
    Our core connection between us all; the multi-dimensions of this and how to show up better in our "now" reality.

Thank you

I’ve been listening to Soul Crush since Adriana started it a couple months ago and have enjoyed every episode. I appreciate her openness, honesty and willingness to delve into topics that could be viewed as uncomfortable or messy is inspiring. The episode she did about Jupiter in Scorpio really hit close to home. I’ve been struggling on my path and found solace in her words, her wisdom, her knowing. Thank you!
