    A Psychosocial Theory of Recognition

    A Psychosocial Theory of Recognition

    This episode offers my PhD research at the intersections of neuroscience, therapy, and feminist writing practices to talk about what the processes of recognition—and non recognition—do to us. I especially highlight Black feminist thinkers at this nexus of ideas.

    On Recognition & Growth

    On Recognition & Growth

    Neuroscience tells us recognition is important for how our brains grow. What parts of yourself do you need to name and recognize? What parts of yourself would you like to ask others to recognize? How is recognition part of growth and healing and flourishing into all the aspects of who we are and why we are here?

    Holding the Knowledge Within Grief Labor

    Holding the Knowledge Within Grief Labor

    How can feminist writing practices help us get closer to the knowledge inside ourself that is both powerful and entwined within deep grief labor? And how do we learn to hold that process as it unfolds? What changes in ourselves and our relationships along the way?

    Deprivation, Resilience, Community: Reframing Self Care

    Deprivation, Resilience, Community: Reframing Self Care

    Self-care is useful as a coping mechanism, but it's also an attempt at an individual solution to a problem that has deep, systemic roots. i talk about identifying our needs and deprivations, as well as the abundant resources of various kinds that we have to circulate to others as feminist practice.

    Fearing Change, Money, and Feminism

    Fearing Change, Money, and Feminism

    One of the reasons people fear change in the feminist journey is because challenging patriarchy usually is not profitable! I talk in this episode about what it means to build alternative community structures that support the change of the feminist journey.

    What Change Do We Fear in the Feminist Healing Journey?

    What Change Do We Fear in the Feminist Healing Journey?

    Often, we unconsciously block our next steps of healing because we fear the ripple effects of our changing. But the feminist journey is about change—so it is important to be able to consider and name our fears of change and breathe into those places inside ourself and our relationships. This episode gives some context for thinking about change at the intersection of personal and social-cultural systems.

A Deeply Generous Offering

I am grateful with my whole heart for this work created by Kimberly George.

The layers of insight, analysis and invitation to cultural and self reflection in this podcast mirror the realities of complexity in our society and time in a way that few media resources do. Kimberly George's interdisciplinary training and practice in gender studies, ethnic studies, religion/theology and psychotherapy, and her 15 years deep of scholarly labor across these fields, are woven together in such a honed and skillful way that she is able to preserve the complexity and nuance of how we are each socialized and inextricably impacted by our violent societal systems of power. With compassion, a clear head and much space for our humanness, in each episode Kimberly George offers opportunites for us to grow ever more integrated intellectually, emotionally, somatically and spiritually in a time and place fragmenting us at every turn.

Validating and Empowering!

One of my friends/coworkers was listening to your podcast the other day, and the topics I heard articulated sounded exactly like the conversations I've been having with my mom and other feminine friends for years! It got me so excited to hear these topics academically discussed and given power through Kimberly's voice and incredible insight!
I plan on sharing your series of "Men learning feminism" with a couple cis men I work with at our nonprofit because I think our work could be dramatically different and more productive if they internalized the topics you discuss.
I am so so so grateful for these empowering podcasts and especially for the intersectional framework Kimberly emphasizes of how dismantling patriarchy also means dismantling racism, colonialism, ableism etc. It is such a gift to get to listen to and support this work!

There's nothing else like this out there.

Kimberly George combines multiple deeply-researched fields and a phenomenal understanding of pedagogy to bring you a discussion of feminism that is like nothing else in the podcasting world. Don't miss it. I recommend this podcast especially for men looking to improve their understanding of their own role in patriarchy.
