25 Mystic Soul: People of Color Centered Spirituality (Teresa P Mateus, Jade Perry, & Ra Mendoza)
By Irresistible Movements
Welcome to part 1 of a 3-part collaborative series between the Mystic Soul Project and Healing Justice Podcast! This week, Mystic Soul co-founders Teresa P Mateus, Ra Mendoza, and Jade Perry join us in a self-facilitated conversation to talk faith origin stories (including Christianity, Catholicism, and Indigenous traditions), the work of bridging worlds, what it means to be POC-centered in approaching spirituality and activism, and grieving appropriation of POC ancestral traditions. You can look forward to the next two installments of this collaborative series publishing once every few weeks, with upcoming topics including “Indigenous Reclamation” and “Contemplative Activism & Healing Practice.” Download the corresponding practice (25 Practice: Grounded Breathing) to join Teresa in a guided breath exercise. Practice episodes always publish on Thursdays. --- We need your help to fund this volunteer project!
