The past few weeks have been heavy and hard. From the trial of George Floyd’s murderer, to the senseless slayings of Asian women, to the police brutality that stole the lives of Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo and now Ma’Khia Bryant we’re all left navigating so much grief and rage.
The conversation of abolishing the police is at the forefront yet, there’s so much resistance to this step by people who deeply invested in a system that’s unjust. However, I know it’s up to us to imagine a more beautiful world where our communities aren’t policed and surveilled.
In many ways, I believe the act of divesting from the imprints of colonization is vital in weaving the new world. Today, I’m sharing my conversation with Dr. Jennifer Mullan of Decolonizing Therapy who I connected to on Instagram to speak about the importance of decolonization and the ways it intersects with rage and healing.
In this episode, we discuss…
- What is decolonization and how has it been appropriated
- Each of our individual roles in decolonizing based on our identities
- The importance of reclaiming rage and how unaddressed rage can manifest
- Coming out of the closet spiritually to share our gifts
- Having reverence in our work of decolonizing and breaking intergenerational and ancestral patterns
I hope you enjoy the many threads that guide us towards reimagining a more just world.
