Solidarity & Fun For Your Week
Last week was launch week, and I spent it in Florida speaking at the Aspen Climate conference in Miami Beach. It was an inspiring time, and I am so grateful I was able to share about my book and experiences on an inter-faith panel with other incredible individuals from different backgrounds.
I believe more and more every day in the power of storytelling. We just cannot get away from one another’s stories. They shape us, heal us, sometimes hurt us. We have so much work to do in one another’s realms and experiences.
I have a few things to share with you going into this week, and I thought I’d label some things as “just for fun” and some things as “solidarity links” because I want us to be happy and also love each other well.
So, here are things for your week!
JUST FOR FUN:
I was honored to be a guest on Glennon Doyle’s podcast WE CAN DO HARD THINGS. I’ve been so encouraged by the feedback from both strangers and friends. You can listen to it here.
I had another dream come true last week—sharing a piece from my book in Oprah Daily! It’s a piece on how my child self came to haunt me in adulthood, and a breath work session helped me heal my relationship with her. You can check it out here.
For the climbers and climber-lovers out there, this brilliant brand called Dynamite Starfish is a favorite of mine. Created by Leslie Kim, the brand sells rock climbing t-shirts and gifts, and I already have a few of my own. Follow this link to explore her products!
Looking for a yoga practitioner who is grounded in tradition to coach and lead you through your yoga practice? Aarti has a beautiful practice, and here’s how she describes it:
As a lifelong practitioner of yoga, I have a deep love and respect for traditional classical hatha yoga. I have been a teacher for nearly 15 years. These teachings come from the sacred land of my birth, and I believe in preserving and sharing the teachings of yoga as sacred ancestral wisdom traditions.
In case you don’t know what’s going on in Atlanta right now, here’s a recap from Democracy Now!:
Prosecutors in Atlanta have charged 23 forest defenders with “domestic terrorism” after their arrests late Sunday at a festival near the site of Cop City, a massive police training facility being built in the Weelaunee Forest. The arrests followed clashes between police and protesters on Sunday afternoon and came less than two months after Atlanta police shot and killed Manuel “Tortuguita” Terán, a 26-year-old environmental defender. For an update on the growing movement to fight Cop City in Atlanta, we’re joined by Micah Herskind, a local community organizer, and Kamau Franklin, founder of Community Movement Builders.
Of those arrested and charged was Victor, an indigenous organizer. You can click the link below to read more and learn how to support him and other protestors who have been denied bond:
