Abundant CommunityWe Hold Medicine for Each Other – A Conversation about Race

By Quanita RobersonTenneson Woolf

In this podcast, Quanita Roberson and Tenneson Woolf explore the dimensions of race, including how the wounds of colonization live on in all of us, how to own your work while compassionately allowing others to do theirs, and the promise that this deeper path can hold for true freedom.

The MN Annual Conference UMC's Rev. Dana Neuhauser offers this list of Books That Can Build Empathy for BIPOC Communities.

The Cosmic We podcast goes beyond race and racism to consider relatedness as the organizing principle of the universe, exploring our shared cosmic origins though a cultural lens that fuses science, mysticism, spirituality, and the creative arts. Together with prominent cosmologists, shamans, biblical scholars, poets and activists, CAC core teacher Barbara Holmes and co-host Donny Bryant unveil the “we” of us beyond color, continent, country, or kinship to conjure unseen futures in exploration of the mystery of Divine connection.

You can listen and subscribe to The Cosmic We with Barbara Holmes through Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify or any podcast player of your preference.

Somatic Coaching + Embodied Antiracism

Rachel Svanoe Moynihan (she/her), SEP student

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is an approach to supporting shifts in how trauma, or stuck protective responses, is held in our nervous systems. As we support stuck patterns to resolve, we free up more space for our life force to come through, allowing us to move through the world with greater presence, resilience, flexibility and a sense of being more fully alive!

Learn what a Somatic Coaching and/or Embodied Antiracism session with Rachel might be.
