25 Practice: Grounded Breathing with Teresa P Mateus of Mystic Soul Project

In this practice, you’re joining Teresa P Mateus of Mystic Soul Project for a grounded breathing exercise. It’s so simple, and so powerful. All you need is a space where you can focus, and to close your eyes if you choose to. Teresa will invite you to stand, sit, or lay down.

You can download the corresponding conversation (25 Mystic Soul: People of Color Centered Spirituality) where we’re talking with Teresa and the other two co-founders of The Mystic Soul Project: Ra Mendoza and Jade Perry. They talk about faith origin stories (including Christianity, Catholicism, and Indigenous traditions), the work of bridging worlds, what it means to be POC-centered in approaching spirituality and activism, and grieving appropriation of POC ancestral traditions.

You can look forward to the next two installments of this 3-part collaborative series between Mystic Soul & Healing Justice Podcast publishing once every few weeks, with upcoming topics including “Indigenous Reclamation” and “Contemplative Activism & Healing Practice.”



Teresa P Mateus is a trauma therapist, trauma-conscious yoga and embodied care provider, and executive director/co-founder of The Mystic Soul Project - a people of color centered approach to contemplation, activism, and healing. She is author of Mending Broken: A Personal Journey Through the Stages of Trauma & Recovery, and Sacred Wounds: A Path to Healing from Spiritual Trauma.
