04 Practice: Real Gratitude with Rusia Mohiuddin

Join us for a gratitude practice that keeps it real with guest teacher Rusia Mohiuddin. (It’s our only practice so far that we had to mark “explicit” for cussing! Ha.) You’ll need a way to jot a few things down… notebook and pen, notes app on your phone, whatever works best for you. You can do this practice via drawing, writing, typing, audio recording, video selfie… whatever works best for you. Rusia encourages us to identify 3 things we are grateful for and record them - with 1 of them being about ourselves. To make it a real practice, commit to yourself to do this for 7 or 30 days straight and see what shifts.

Check out episode 4 for the corresponding conversation with Rusia Mohiuddin titled "Vomiting Rage: Self-Responsibilty and Self-Care in the Movement” to listen to our conversation about rage, being in a constant state of trigger, the way we take out our pain by attacking one another in our movements for social justice, social media slander, survival strategies, and the trauma of oppression. We’ll talk about self care and self responsibility, and what it looks like to develop practices that generate a real sustainable self care protocol.

Rusia N. Mohiuddin, based in New York, is a trainer, facilitator, and somatic coach who pioneered the integration of somatics into an organizing framework. Rusia’s organizing career started with 8 years as a street-level community organizer, grew to leading organizations, and now training leaders and consulting with organizations.  

Her current mission through her organization Universal Partnership has been developing a holistic model for social justice change work that places in its center the necessary transformation of social change agents. Rusia says: “Too often we default to compromises and sacrifices in the name of liberation, in the name of our communities, forgetting that, we too, are amongst those we seek freedom for. That, we too, are a part of the very communities we bleed for in our relentless, ceaseless fight. Too often, I must remind people that we must be alive to do this work. Alive physiologically AND spiritually. This is my calling. This is my life’s purpose.”
