I attended a protest this past Saturday at the direction of my field education supervisor. Although I was more than happy to attend a protest previously, Spirit directed me against it.
In all wisdom, I needed to spiritually distance myself from the happenings.
I have wrestled through experiencing my emotions during this state of unrest. I have equally wrestled with what my embodied participation looks like. I cannot say that I have found an answer to the questions that have come up, yet I am sure that my participation in the protest provided an opportunity for me to exhale just a little more.
Background is warranted before I proceed….
