In this practice, “Releasing to Pachamama,” Fhatima Paulino guides you through a simple earth reconnection practice. You’ll need a quiet place, either indoors or outdoors, where you can lay on the floor, and if you like to use a candle, incense, or palo santo, you can collect that too.
Download the corresponding conversation (episode 15) titled “Decolonization & The Long View of History” to learn with us about the critical perspective of a long and global view of history to help us understand how long change takes and where our problems come from. We talk slowing down to care for our bodies and family members with illness, learning about collective work in indigenous traditions, Ayahuasca and people looking to the south for healing and spiritual direction, reciprocity and right relationship, and responding to appropriation at the collective level.
