Y'all! This is the last interview of 2019...next week we start the Journey Into The Wild Soul, which I'll say more about in a moment, but first, today's guest is someone I was looking forward to having on the show all year.
Her name is adrienne maree brown and her book Emergent Strategy is one that I keep near by to flip through like an oracle deck ever so often to be inspired, ignited and reminded of who I am and what I'm here to do.
Quick note before we get into the interview, adrienne travels a ton for teaching and facilitating and had to get ready for a flight during our interview, so there is some background noise, however, it didn't impact her level of presence at all and the convo is golden.
Now that that's out of the way, her big truth was that she's going to die, which sparked a conversation around how things move and what really matters to her. We talked about humility and curiosity and "doing" separate from productivity, meaning, how can you do what you want to do with the time you have.
We talked about how we're all socialized under capitalism and the impact that has on how we connect and relate to one another. She shared how she maintains a healthy nervous system as she navigates becoming more visible in her work.
We discussed rigor and not just getting people to do "their work," but to stay in it, which led to a discussion of shame and accountability. And finally, we geeked out on somatics and embodiment.
I really loved this chat and hope you will too. Share it up, find us on Instagram, let us know what you thought, use it to have discussions with your loved ones...you know the drill.
