Thanks for the love and for the amazing work that you do, @cloverandtimothy !!! Also I finally figured out how to use the repost app, everyone! This is very exciting.
Repost from @cloverandtimothy @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost @thirdrootclinic's planters in full bloom and overflowing, must be all that motherwort beckoning folks in - my prenatal class was a full house today. With 19 expecting people and 20 babes in utero, class was, as one clever student so appropriately joked, "bumping!" Community during pregnancy and postpartum is so key and I'm honored to be able to build this community in the exact room where I started to explore birthwork. So endlessly #grateful for @thirdrootclinic! Happy Pride to all! #birthwork#prenatalyoga#brooklynyoga#communityhealth#doulalife#allpregnantpeoplewelcome#punsarefun#bumpingalong#om#moo
We lose when we argue with reality--every damn time. We need to remember this important fact. No matter how much we may dislike what is going on, by eliminating our resistance, we reduce unnecessary suffering and are in a much better place to take affect in action. Are you arguing with reality today?
Most of us learned to walk before we could speak, but did you know that you could be making mistakes in the way you walk? We shared a blog post by @myfitnesspal on our Facebook page that has 4 easy ways to protect your body while walking. Where’s your favorite place to walk? #Lanai

Oldie but a goodie ♡ Sometimes a single deep breath is all we need to get back on track. If this gif works for young people in our programs, we recommend that they save it on their phones - that way a guided, deep breath is never far away. To practice, inhale as the shape expands; exhale as it contracts. (And maybe save it on your phone too..!)
The Pan African Film & Arts Festival would like to thank The Strategy & Soul Center for allowing PAFF to use their wonderful facilities for our annual PAFF volunteer party. Three days of films & food for our dedicated volunteers who show-up and serve for twelve days in February. They provide PAFF with enough hands and know how to help this large festival happen for the last 25 years.
The Strategy & Soul Center is building a machine to take on the System. "The Social Welfare State Not the Police State...The Environmental Justice State not the War State". We are grateful to Eric Mann, the Director and KPFK's "Voices From The Frontlines" Channing L. Martinez, E-Organizer and our projectionist for the weekend, and Carlos Elmo Gomez, organizer and the entire Strategy staff.

Slowing life right down. Maintaining daily rituals and practices can hold additional challenges while travelling. But one thing that comes quite easily, is the deliciousness of slowing down, doing less and noticing more....everyday mindfulness. Time away from our everyday routine is a useful reminder and a reconnection with spaciousness, the next step is embodying this back in the working world.

One week until I'm back in the field doing what I was meant to do. 🤙🏽 I use my experiences to talk about the downfalls of 'voluntourism.' Voluntourism is traveling under the guise of meaningful volunteer work. It is (almost always) a group of idealistic & privileged travelers with little understanding of the locals history, culture, or way of life. Unfortunately, we see a lot of 'volunteer work' that provides no long term benefit to the population being served. Instead, these trips are used as a 'feel good' mission for privileged people. Pass out a few vitamins or bags of clothing, snap a few photos with smiling orphans, and post an uplifting status on Facebook about feeling fulfilled. It's a very challenging topic to discuss and there are many misguided good intentions. From both a medical and public health perspective, walking into a rural village in Africa and handing out vitamins and helping deliver a few babies does not translate into long term health or community improvement. 👎🏽 Many of these communities actually have medical providers that are able to perform these tasks. They don't need a western savior. What we do see, is an overwhelming need for safe and clean clinics, supplies, surgical equipment, public health education (how to purify water, proper hygiene, reducing the risk of STIs, family planning, and dental care) medications, and money. Global organizations do require skilled workers out in the field. These workers (depending on organization and goal) can be medical, construction, engineering, etc. Long term change means working with a community (taking into consideration what they have to work with once we leave) to develop awareness, safe procedures, and new protocols that the locals can sustain on their own. If you don't possess a much-needed skill (construction, surgery, educator, etc) you are probably most helpful on the back end; meaning advocacy work for an organization, fundraising, advocating for global health or better foreign policy. I understand it's not nearly as exciting but those aspects of service are incredibly important. 🙌🏽 Be aware of your presence, your impact, and be realistic about your work. ❤️ #publichealth
