This week on RadioActive we shook it up! Normally we take this time to talk about social change and ways to challenge the dominant narratives in our society. But as all of you fine folks know, trying to change the world can be exhausting, so we spent this week talking about creative forms of self-care. Sara Green joined us from Vanderbilt University to share with us her concept of Embodied Divinity. This concept is a movement-based practice that invites participants into a space exploring the value and magic of bodies, bodies in community, and care, derived from womanist ethics. Sara discussed why it is important to understand our bodies and how to care for them in a complex and kinetic way, in order to sustain the important work of social change and avoid burn-out.
