31 Intention & Impact: Showing Up Right-Sized -- Teo Drake

This week, we’re talking with Teo Drake about the relationship between intention and impact, what it means to be right-sized, the rage of coming of age during the AIDS epidemic,  Being Trans and HIV+ poster child, having a quiet nature AND fighting white supremacy, and risk as a devotional act.

Download the corresponding practice (31 Practice: Heart Over Head) to join Teo in privileging your heart above your head. It’s simple, short, and embodied. Practice episodes always publish on Thursdays.

ABOUT OUR GUEST

Teo Drake is a spiritual activist, an educator, a practicing Buddhist and yogi, and an artisan who works in wood and steel. Teo says that as a blue collar queer-identified trans man living with AIDS, he has 101 reasons to not want to be present in his own skin. The physical and spiritual practice of yoga and Buddhist traditions made it possible to begin to heal and feel at home in his own body. When he isn’t helping spiritual spaces be more welcoming and inclusive of queer and transgender people or helping queer and trans folks find authentic spiritual paths, he can be found teaching martial arts, yoga, and woodworking to children. His writing can be found in the anthology Yoga and Body Image and at the blog Roots Grow the Tree.---
