enfleshed Interview

enfleshed is an organization that creates spiritual resources for collective liberation. I was featured in Moments for Common Nourishment, a bi-weekly column by scholars, activists, artists, and others sharing words of healing and nourishment for a spiritual community seeking sustainable change.

Exploring Spiritual Direction and the Black Experience

logo for The Birth Neoterist podcast: white, capitalized, bold lettering that reads 'Birth. Future. Justice' with each word on a new line, above this, much smaller writing in cursive that says 'The Birth Neoterists' in white with purple, capital letters over a yellow background that resembles a highlighter mark that says 'Newsletter'

The Birth Neoterist Newsletter featured an interview with me by Sabia Wade, The Black Doula. She is a Black, queer CEO with a mission of building bridges for a more inclusive, diverse, and equitable world through Reproductive Justice, distribution of financial wealth to BIPOC communities, and investing in emergent and innovative businesses. The Birth Neoterist Newsletter is a central place for conversations around the future of birth, reproductive justice, and liberation. Listen or watch here.

Transformative Practices for Group Processing in Spiritual Communities

Chaplaincy Innovation Lab

I had the opportunity to share my experiences around group facilitation with the Trauma Responsive Congregations project.

Small groups are some of the most powerful and transformative spaces for group processing, reclaiming narratives, and experiencing connection. Group facilitation is a necessary skill for congregational ministers, chaplains, and spiritual care providers as they accompany those processing traumatic experiences.
