This week our Mindful Monday offering is another weekly wellness resource. For The Wild podcast is much admired by some of our staff members. They are committed to conservation and land protection, decolonization, Indigenous knowledge, storytelling, environmental and social justice, and deep spiritual ecology. In light of COVID-19 and the global ecological and humanitarian crisis, For the Wild is producing weekly podcasts on Mondays under the name “Deeply Rooted”.
From their website: “Deeply Rooted is a new offering devoted to inviting relief, balance and abundance into our lives during these uncertain times. We’ve brought together some amazing folks who we feel are wise stewards of Earth, spirit, community and bodily wisdom who will share a variety of grounding practices and coping tools to lend support during this unprecedented time where it can be easy to feel overwhelmed.”
The last Deeply Rooted episode, titled “Remembering Back Into Ourselves” is a guided meditation and breathwork practice for the morning, led by Kailea Frederick. “Kailea Frederick is a mother and First Nations woman dedicated to supporting individuals of all cultures in remembering their ties to the earth.” – from Earth is ‘Ohana website
Inspired by parents with young children, especially single parents raising children alone during this time, Kailea guides us through Joy Harjo’s poem “Remember” while gently encouraging intentional breath and listening. Whether or not you are a parent, this invitation to surrender will leave you with a sweet feeling of peace and connectedness throughout your day.
