Reconnect to your body’s knowing  

Are you looking to improve your mind-body-spirit connection? Do you tend to ignore what your body is saying to you?  Do you want to understand how your emotions affect your body and how to change your body’s response to emotional triggers?  Are you curious about exploring your connection to your higher self, your ancestors, nature and the universe?

Amy Grace Lam says: “Reconnect to your body’s knowing”

Teresa Jade LeYung says:”Thank you, dear Amy Grace Lam, for teaching me how to listen, ask questions, listen some more … to my body and reconnect to intuition / my body’s knowing. You helped me solved three life-changing problems, and, I was able to go home to Paris again and again, with peace of mind and joy in my heart. I am forever grateful.”

Wake-Up America!  Part II

Healing Racism

by Dr. Kim McMillon, Professor & Author

https://www.narrativepathsjournal.com/guest-column-wake-up-america-part-ii-healing-racism-by-dr-kim-mcmillon-professor-author/

Dr. Kim McMillon, author, historian, activistDr. Kim McMillon, author, historian, activist, over twenty years of experience producing theatre

The Conversation 

  1. How do you become an ally to those experiencing racial oppression?
  2.  The public has not protested the atrocities that have been taking place in our country, but yet during a pandemic, people are taking to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd, why?
  3.   How do you believe we can change the world for the better?
  4.   As a poet, how would you like to be remembered?
  5.   What line or stanza of poetry best describes you?
Thank you, Kim McMillon, Ph.D., for sharing your spotlight with us in your guest column “Wake-Up America!” Part 2.

Thank you for letting me (Teresa Jade LeYung) speak out through your Question #2 and Question #3.

Author Teresa Jade LeYung says:  The tagline in Dr. Kim McMillon’s poetathon is: “If not NOW, WHEN?” I believe that that mantra plus the ability to document incidents with our personal electronic devices (especially cellphones) plus the speed in which to broadcast content through social media add up to a World Town Crier galvanizing people to protest the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and other victims. Here we are, fighting a global enemy named Coronavirus – people old and young risking their lives to save lives – folks making sacrifices by staying home to reduce the spread of infection – friends and neighbors sharing resources . . . yet, all the while, the hideous monster named racial injustice looms across our past and present. What can I do after protesters have gone home? How do I confront apathy and denial? I pledge to get more training from www.ihollaback.org: “We’re on a mission to end harassment—in all its forms.”  The folks at Hollaback! (in 16 countries) have developed new programs, including “Bystander Intervention to Stop Police-Sponsored Violence and Anti-Black Racist Harassment” and “Stand Up Against Street Harassment.” I pledge to not wait to read voting material right before elections but to routinely visit websites of my legislators to communicate to them what laws I want changed, so that I stand with fellow Americans to fully exercise our rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” http://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration

Author Teresa Jade LeYung says:  How can we change the world for the better?  While I have no answers, questions weigh on me as a U.S. citizen.

Do we have a chance of becoming our better selves? Yes! We can wake up! Perhaps if we continue asking lawmakers these and other questions, our united voices shall change the world for the better.

“Thank you, Dr. Kim McMillon, for giving us this forum to wake up in unity.”
