Episode 04: The Emperor
Featuring Lena Mikale of Hapa Bruja
Lena and I spent some time navigating our cultures of Hapa and Hafu. We talked of what it means to tend to both sides, and how they each provide a different place for us to anchor into.
We navigate her ancestry of way finding, find depth in the waters of the soul, and once again call upon the Emperor from a place of the embodied masculine. Not to be isolated and pushed aside, but integrated and held.
These past weeks, I have been engaging in a challenge around White Supremacy. This challenge, #meandwhitesupremacy has opened by eyes to the narrative that continues throughout my daily life and the ways I am complicit in racial bias. I urge anyone, especially white identifying folx to check this out.
I will post a link to more information in the show resources and again in my newsletter.
