The world is in need of radical healing. Cultural and planetary healing are interdependent and interconnected with our personal healing. For you to thrive, the entire planetary ecosystem must thrive. As we create the conditions to restore the well-being of all Life on Earth, we must consider our own radical healing as part of it. Dr. Julie invites you to contemplate a personal journey into radical healing for yourself and the planet.
In a time when millions of citizens have hit the streets to protest for or against something, in an attempt to bring change to the most critical issues facing humanity, David Bedrick invites us to look at a different kind of activism. “It’s an activism born more from the mind and heart than marching feet. It’s expressed not by a megaphone or signs but through teaching, writing, and facilitating dialogue. An activism that embraces our individual and collective shadows rather than opposing them or fighting against them.”
David Bedrick is a speaker, attorney and author of Talking Back to Dr. Phil: Alternatives to Mainstream Psychology and Revisioning Activism: Bringing Depth, Dialogue, and Diversity to Individual and Social Change. His new book is You Can’t Judge a Body by Its Cover: 17 Women’s Stories of Hunger, Body Shame and Redemption. David is the founder of the Santa Fe Institute for Shame based Studies where he teaches and works with individuals around the world.
As Black Lives Matter and the movement to heal and transcend systemic racism continues, we turn our awareness toward healthy, radical diversity. The invitation isn’t to separate, change, judge, or transform a person or their culture. The call is to come into a healing response of love, acceptance, respect and celebration for the beauty, wisdom and life-enriching value in our differences.
