#113 Leach Gooch “Four Minutes a Day”

Yay! Brainy Fox is back! Our theme music by Shana Falana rides again!!! Ida and I check in, get deep about fear and thriving and then I play an interview with Leah Gooch of Four Minutes a Day who offers Reiki, Yoga, and Meditation. Leah shares some of her journey to and through Reiki and how she does remote distant Reiki services. I attempt to analogize this phenomenon with Quantum Physics. If anyone out there really understands Quantum Physics/Mechanics, please come and be a guest on my show! Leah, otherwise known as Gooch, also shares her work in jails and prisons and talks a bit about her experience there and the profound shifts she’s seen in her students from experiencing yoga and meditation with one another. She’s been offering a daily 4 minute meditation, sent via email, to everyone on her mailing list and expects to continue throughout the physical distancing period we are going through. She has a few remaining free remote Reiki sessions available and thereafter offers her work on a sliding scale. She’s awesome and wonderful, and I am grateful for her work here on this planet. Gooch’s words of advice for what we’re going through right now…”call your Mother, be kind to others and to yourself.” Yes, yes, yes.

Today’s show was engineered by Ida Hakkila of Radio Kingston, http://www.radiokingston.org.

We heard music from our fave, Shana Falana, http://www.shanafalana.com/

home. is our second evening-length dance-poetry piece that deeply explores our daily realities as a black, out-lesbian couple living and loving in New York. This piece goes beyond glimpses into our living; it hones in on the details of our experiences and provides grounding for the accompanying emotions. Along with sharing our everyday interactions with “micro” aggressions, personal historical trauma, and making visible the impacts of violence, we highlight our love as a healing force, potent enough to transform our pain into power.

#72 Sarah Van Buren “Disco is Long Life” + Art in Public Spaces

Today, Theresa’s live from Outdated Lite in Kingston, NY, mixing things up to talk about how to be in community with one another, about connecting through music and art and about why we should collaborate creatively in public spaces instead of regulating them, but first, a convo with Sarah Van Buren, a woman of many talents and A LOT of musical cred.
