    Ep 55 Julie Delene | Move As One

    Ep 55 Julie Delene | Move As One

    Julie Delene is a management consultant who's developed a system called Move As One, which draws on her experience in ballroom dance and Feng Shui to help teams move through stagnation or conflict.

    We talk about how this idea of co-creation is gaining momentum (with a lot of ground work already done by the activist communities of the 60's and 70's).  It's also an ancient and natural way for us to operate, and the newer concepts of capitalism and colonialism are really what have left us feeling so disconnected.

    There are many additional voices to listen to on this subject of co-creation.  adrienne maree brown is one we mentioned in the episode, but there are many more, and we encourage you to explore this topic from a variety of viewpoints.

    Ep 54 Ihotu Ali | Cultural Healing Practices for Birth + Postpartum

    Ep 54 Ihotu Ali | Cultural Healing Practices for Birth + Postpartum

    Ihotu Ali is an integrative medicine practitioner, researcher, doctor in training, and cultural womb healer.

    Fascinated by the connections between western and traditional medicine, she studied Afro-indigenous and global cultural practices for childbirth, ancestral and womb healing, alongside formal medical training in chiropractic care, neurological benefits of touch, and the neuroscience of spirituality and meditation.

    In this episode we talk about the benefits of bodywork before and after birth, how to bring in cultural practices to support birth and postpartum, and why it's important to work with what we have from our own lineage rather than appropriating other cultural practices.

    Ep 53 Anne Murphy | Supporting Death + Grief

    Ep 53 Anne Murphy | Supporting Death + Grief

    Anne Murphy is a celebrant, death educator, and home vigil guide who's passionate about helping people walk through death and grief in a supported way. 

    We talk about what home vigils can look like, and how slowing down the physical transition between death and final disposition of the body can give families more time to process the loss. 

    In our youth and productivity obsessed culture, we don't do death well.  And the reality is that we will all die at some point.  We will all experience a significant loss.  Anne gives some suggestions for how to begin wrapping our minds around this and how to have conversations with the people we care about before we're confronted with a terminal diagnosis or a sudden loss.
