33 Contemplative Activism -- Cicia Lee, Alexis Francisco, & Teresa P Mateus of Mystic Soul

Welcome to part 3 of a 3-part collaborative series between the Mystic Soul Project and Healing Justice Podcast!

This week, Cicia Lee, Alexis Francisco, and Teresa P Mateus join us to talk about the role of contemplation in activism, queerness in spiritual community, what POC-centered contemplation can look like, lamentation and grief, and how attending to the internal and breaking through illusion *is* a form of action.

Download the corresponding practice episode to practice Centering Prayer with Alexis and Cicia. Practice episodes always publish on Thursdays.

To hear the rest of the series, download episode 26 to hear from Mystic Soul about POC-centered spirituality, and episode 29 to join the discussion on indigenous reclamation.
