    Part II: Redefining r/Evolutionary with Guest Dr. Angelica Pinna-Perez

    Continuing my chat with social action activist, educator and psychotherapist Dr. Angelica Pinna-Perez.

    In Part I of our discussion we started taking a closer look at our understanding of racism and how it is built into our systems (internal and external).

    We continue that in part II, exploring topics of race in mental health care, suicide prevention, pop culture representation and police brutality.

    How and what can we reframe to feed our evolution and allow that to become our revolution?

    This episode does touch on sensitive subjects regarding suicide prevention. If you are in danger of hurting yourself please reach out. The counselors at the crisis text line are ready to support you.

    Part I: Redefining r/Evolutionary with Guest Dr. Angelica Pinna-Perez

    Part I: Redefining r/Evolutionary with Guest Dr. Angelica Pinna-Perez

    Host Erez Shek sat down this week to speak with Dr. Angelica Pinna-Perez, a trauma aware and culturally affirming psychotherapist, educator and social action activist. She is the founder of The Cervitude Coalition 501(c)(3), a non-profit increasing access to quality holistic mental health care. A fierce advocate for equity in holistic mental health care, she centers anti-colonial re-imaginings in order to amplify its healing impact on people and communities living with complex collective trauma.

    In this episode, we embrace conversations surrounding equity in health care systems, educational systems and judicial systems. Exploring how decolonization can assist us to truly tackle racism and the systemic issues that feed our need to redefine our evolution and be truly r/Evolutionary.

    Our ability and desire to question not only things around us, but also question ourselves becomes a powerful internal tool that naturally becomes an external power.

    Trapped Emotions with Guest David Delgado

    Trapped Emotions with Guest David Delgado

    What are trapped emotions?

    All our emotions affect our bodies in different ways and carry different energy within us. What happens when energy doesn't get to release the way it should? It does not just disappear or go away. It stays with us. It becomes trapped. How do trapped emotions show up in our bodies and our lives? How do we become aware of these trapped emotions? What can we do from (and with) that awareness?

    Guest David Delgado (founder of Moksha- A personal development company) sits down to talk about his discovery of his own trapped emotions. Breaking down how they showed up in his life, his path of awareness, and what movement looks like for him now.

    David is a UX designer by trade and began walking the path within when he faced unexplainable brain fog, chronic fatigue, and other symptoms. On his journey, he became immersed in the fields of biohacking, contemplative sciences, breath work, transpersonal psychology, subconscious programming, and other modalities.

    While we may not have all the answers, we have our own answers up until this point and that is why we talk. That is why we share. That is how we check ourselves so that we wreck ourselves a little bit less.

    Focus Check: Changed Habits Vs. Changed Mindset

    Focus Check: Changed Habits Vs. Changed Mindset

    Which comes first? 

    Changed Mindset or Changed Habits?

    When I posed this question to my followers on Instagram, I got very interesting results. A majority of people responded that a changed mindset comes first.

    Which is why, in this episode, I explain why I think it's important to look at changed habits first (and always).

    Focus check.

Unbelievable

Unbelievable mind and soul.

Testimony matters

This cast is a screaming, blasting, banging, example as to home we mitigate stigma, maximize health seeking behaviors, and normalize the human experience of having a psychology. It’s self-aware, gritty, and beyond empathic and empowering. My friend, thank you for this. I will distribute this far and wide.

Watercooler25 ,
