248 Spirituality and Politics and Racism -AGAIN- with Marielena Ferrer

Today we begin by sharing and discussing Nikki Fogerty’s weekly Tarot report.

Then we’re off to the races talking about racism, what it means, why it happens and what we think about how to resolve our country’s racist problems. Marielena talks about what motivates people and how this affects their overall behavior including stereotyping and controlling others. This conversation was prompted by the political problems in LA with racist speech.

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda from Radio Kingston.

236 “Politics and Spirituality” with Marielena Ferrer and Mya Bailey

Today, Marielena steers the ship and is joined by artist and art historian/historian Mya Bailey for this month’s installment of Politics and Spirituality. Theresa and baby Aiden do make a guest appearance. Today’s conversation approaches reproductive freedom from the perspective of justice and equity and where it’s lacking in the health care system. Mya has focused much of her art on the idea of race and how it’s both impacted her internally as well as externally. Marielena brings themes from this recent NY Time’s Article to the conversation, and we learn about Mya’s artwork placement in the Yale University’s Art and Art History journal @asteriskjournal.

You can find Marielena engaged in the an/aesthetics @rosekill.art.farm opening Sunday August 14, 6-9pm. 177 Binnewater Road.

The show at this location will change and evolve over the next 10 months. Please follow @anaesthetics_rosekill to track this experimental outdoor exhibition.

As an/aesthetics suggests, we sought projects that reimagine collective assumptions about the aesthetically acceptable. For example, how might new paradigms emerge with mutuality and reciprocity, inclusivity, regeneration, imperfection, entanglement, slowness and authenticity? Can we create space for bodily intelligence, the imperceptible, irregularity, playfulness and nonsense?

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda from Radiokingston.org.

She also chairs the Alianza Cultural de Kingston, an advisory board for the promotion,  connection and celebration of the arts and cultures of the diverse Hispanic communities, and is the Executive Director of Humanamente, a diversity and inclusion consulting organization.

Ferrer will lead a series of 30-minute workshops that invite visitors to engage in collective artmaking. While creating paper butterflies with the artist, visitors will discuss the ideas that Ferrer’s work probes, including the monarch butterfly migration quest, its symbolic connection to migrant children at the U.S.-Mexican border, the Trump-Pence administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy and the negative consequences of the policy on the health and well-being of immigrant and U.S. citizens alike. A subsequent installation of the artist’s paper butterflies will be on view from August–September 11 in the same gallery.

It’s the second Monday of the month and you know what that means, “Spirituality and Politics” with Marielena Ferrer.

219 Sacred Activism and Emergent Leadership with Marielena Ferrer

Back at it for another round of deep thoughts and wild talks with Mariaelena Ferrer.

The second Monday of the month is inspired by the book, Espiritualidad y Politica, which was published 11 years ago, of which Mariaelena was a contributor. She is also the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission.

Today, we veer ever so slightly away from the book to discuss this article about bridging the divide between political groups. Then we return to the book to discuss the themes of sacred activism, emergent leadership and the shadow. We end the show with the upcoming Full Moon report on the intriguing Eris.

Join Marielena for her art opening, Broken Monarchs, at The Dorsky Museum on May 6th from 5-7pm.

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.

215 Marielena Ferrer “War Through the Lens of the Tarot”

Back at it for another round of deep thoughts and wild talks with Mariaelena.

The second Monday of the month is inspired by the book, Espiritualidad y Politica, which was published 10 years ago, of which Mariaelena was a contributor. She is also the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission.

March 14th is National Learn About Butterflies Day, and because Marielena has been working on an art installation involving 5000 butterflies, she shares why they are important to her, and a bit about her exhibit, opening May 6th, 2022 at the Dorsky Museum, closing May 8th.

Then we move right along to the biggest news in spirituality and politics today, the invasion of Ukraine. This includes a conversation about compassion inspired by this article. Marielena shares her assessment of the situation through the lens of the Tarot and then shares a meditation for all of us to practice on our own, to meditate on the key cards, the Emperor and the Hierophant, the majors players in what is unfolding at this moment.

Finally, we end the show with a little Moon love, and a share from Tanaaz about this week’s Full Moon Astrology.

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.

206 Spirituality and Politics and Ending Polarization with Marielena Ferrer

It’s the return of our monthly conversation about Spirituality and Politics with Marielena Ferrer. Today we take inspiration from an episode of the Dan Harris Podcast 10% Happier about How You Help End Polarization and Inequality and Get Happier Too. It features Robert Putnam and Shaylan Romney Garrett who wrote the book, The Upswing: How America Came Together a Century Ago and How We Can Do It Again. Without having read the book, we discuss different elements mentioned on the podcast about the “I, We, I” curve as well as the suggested factors that worked to facilitate change during times of great divide in American history. History doesn’t provide a perfect solution, but it can form the basis for inspiration to help facilitate more communication, collaboration and less division in our present day America. Are your “I” and “We” balanced? Who else is in for giving it a try?

202 “Spirituality and Politics” with Marielena Ferrer

It’s the return of Marielena Ferrer and our monthly conversation inspired by Espiritualidad y Politica, which ponders ideas related to society’s relationship with money, cultural integration, sustainable development, and participation in public life. The overarching message is that it is possible and necessary to marry the art of living (spirituality) with the art of coexisting (politics) to achieve peace. We talk about the practical implications of this and other related topics. Today we discuss human nature and the spirit, energy and matter, and separateness and oneness.

Mariaelena is an artist and the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization.

Here’s the information on the Holistic Health Community.

Here’s the Full Moon Report I read from, and here’s the link to register for my Full Moon Virtual Circle with meditation and journaling.

#197 Marielena Ferrer “Spirituality and Politics – Compassion and Anger”

It’s the return of Marielena Ferrer and our monthly conversation inspired by Espiritualidad y Politica, which ponders ideas related to society’s relationship with money, cultural integration, sustainable development, and participation in public life. The overarching message is that it is possible and necessary to marry the art of living (spirituality) with the art of coexisting (politics) to achieve peace. We talk about the practical implications of this and other related topics. Today we discuss how politics has become a team sport, return to our conversation about compassion, and then dip into the point and purpose of anger and how it it seems to be more socially accepted, even revered, if displayed by a man vs. a woman.

Mariaelena is an artist and the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization.
