Meet Colette Pichon Battle, culture holder, bayou woman, community healer, fierce advocate. Listen to this voice of moral clarity coming from the front lines of climate change. Colette’s sense of urgency is matched by a deep wisdom of the heart. By her trust in the power of community, and by her belief that we can heal and rise together.
Next on the Podcast is this interview with Malia Lazu. Principal at the UrbanLabs, culture creator and brilliant strategist. You’ll learn about activating the power of cultural competency. We talk about how the work of diversity, equity and inclusion should be joyful. Not painful. Because it should feel great to be different together.
In our third episode I interview Nashira Baril. Nashira attended the Evolutionary Leadership Workshop in 2015. She came to work on her dream of building a birth center in Boston. Nearly four years later that dream is seeded and well on its way to bloom. Check out the birth center’s website here and listen in to learn more about this project, the meaningful implications of this work and how you can get involved.
In this episode I interview author Cyndi Suarez, who has just released The Power Manual, a book on how to master complex power dynamics. Cyndi is one of my dearest friends. And she has written a book for our time.
The social movements of our day have a conflicted relationship with power, endlessly deconstructing its evils while actively yearning for it. We forget that in any conflict the tendency is to become the mirror image of your opponent. There is great confusion between the struggle for power and the quest of liberation. Cyndi has written a comprehensive operations manual for living into the tension of these distinctions and quite literally enacting our way to freedom.
