21 Spiritual Resistance: Bridging Organizing & Healing -- Francisca Porchas Coronado

This week we’re talking with Francisca Porchas Coronado. We talk about healing traditions in immigrant Latinx communities, the resilience of undocumented folks in the face of loss and grief, tending to pain politically and personally, community ritual, and her spiritual path in IFA. She’s got some specific challenging asks for organizers and healers, too, so listen in!

You can download the corresponding practices (Daily Gratitude Prayer in English / Rezo Diario de Gratitud in Spanish) to experience a simple and powerful prayer with Francisca.
