Do you prioritize thoughts and ideas over sensing and
Do you delay putting yourself or your creative work out there because you're obsessing over the details?
Do you engage in sex without love?
Much of what you experience as personal can actually be traced back to the collective trauma of whyte supremacy.
Riffing off of Jones and Okun's (2001) article on white supremacy culture and adding to it my own anecdotal experiences as a mixed race, trauma-informed somatic practitioner and psychologist who grew up within a colonial context, I offer my insights on the embodiment of whyte culture and antidotes to releasing your attachment to it.
In this episode, I tackle how urgency, relationship with discomfort, perfectionism, function over feeling, all or nothing thinking, and fear of conflict show up in your everyday life.
Perhaps most importantly, though, I address the separation of head and body (Descartes' mind-body dualism) as well as the heart-pelvic split (collective religious trauma) that can be healed by walking the path of the sacred whore.
