In this uprising for Black lives, all peoples are called to transform the trauma of white supremacy. The mourning and mobilization following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks and many others are changing the fabric of our collective reality.
Black leaders in this movement make clear the collective change we need: defund police, dismantle institutional anti-Blackness, defend and uplift Black lives, invest in Black thriving.
Inside and alongside this social transformation, our individual bodies are called into action and called into healing. We are called to co-create a world where Black and Indigenous folks, people of color, and all peoples are free to live and live well. We are called to live actively into knowing that our liberation is bound together.
In this Clinical Mindfulness episode, Rebecca Renfrow and Steve Hoskinson explored how we can cultivate conditions to support ourselves and others to simultaneously take action now in support of Black life, and work from the nervous system up to transform our own conditioning and the ways in which we have internalized myths of white supremacy.WATCH THE REPLAY
How is intuition the foundation of all originality and innovation? What is this expression of our intuition and how is it a force of change, evolution and resiliency for our times? How do creativity and intuition use the unknown to thrive and flourish?
In this episode, Helena shared her insights in the exploration of these questions and facilitate experiential exercises so listeners will have an experience of the intuition that arises from the integration of the OI framework of Image, Sensation, Orientation, Meaning and Affect (ISOMA).
We are told, and research supports, that mindfulness meditation—and not that much of it, really—can make a real difference in our experience of well-being. Organic Intelligence® also brings an understanding of “Outsight,” which points to how the mind is seeing and creating the reality it sees (nama and rupa). This is not a random creation, nor a process to ‘get beyond,’ it is one way we can directly experience the mind’s inclination towards integration. Outsight and Insight weave together to support this integration process both in formal meditation practice and “off the cushion." Join in this exchange as Steve and Robin continue years of conversation on this topic, including discussion on creating a reliable bridge between meditation and meaningful living.
