307 Spirituality and Politics with Marielena Ferrer “Preparing for 2024”

Getting prepared spiritually, politically and mentally for 2024! Using a planner, scheduling life, color coding, scheduling emotions, the conscious bath, receiving, prioiritizing, consciously choosing what makes up your life. It’s an election year, a year 8 and in the Major Arcana, the 8 is The Strength or The Justice, depending upon which structure you use. What does this mean for us? Also, Chinese Astrology – getting amped for the Power Crone phase, plus this week’s New Moon!

304 Spirituality and Politics “Resolving Conflict and Learning”

Today Marielena and I wander through various subjects related to Politics and Spirituality… Starting with Pablo Helguera’s Método de Discursos Sociales. How do you resolve conflict? Start with naming the problem to make sure you actually understand it.

This meanders over to my curiosities about Marina Abromovic’s Rhythm Series (’73-’74), and themes of the sword, and power over others…

Here’s the Article; Education: Why not a race to the top? – that inspires us to think about how to chance education to one focusing on learning to learn, learning to do, learning to live together, learning to be.

What does this bring up? Fear of failure and criticism…Are we all born with resilience? This is a subject for next year… who wants to join in?

Final words from Marielena and Theresa on the end of the year…Marielena suggests some solstice writing on your wishes… and how you can take steps to fulfillment.

300 Spirituality and Politics with Marielena Ferrer “Open Mindedness”

It’s Politics and Spirituality with Theresa and Marielena Ferrer. This month we’re talking about open mindedness inspired by this NPR article on the same subject. Here’s the Implicit Association Test that was mentioned during our conversation. Prior to jumping into this subject we do revisit the subject of money following up from my conversation with Beth Bengtson from Working for Women about their screening of the film $AVVY.

Happy New Moon! Here’s the report I read from that was very much aligned with our conversation about open mindedness.

#165 “Caliban and the Witch” Part 5 Book Discussion

Happy Women’s History Month! In collaboration with Women’s History Month Kingston, we bring the discussion of Silvia Federici’s Caliban and the Witch to a close this week, diving into Chapter 5, “Colonization and Christianization.” We went way off text, but had a very meaningful (to me) discussion about some vitally important topics. Sassafras has copies of the book if you want to read and revisit this in more detail. Let us know if you do. We can keep the conversation going…

Here’s Carolita’s event, Goodbye to All That Book Re-Launch + Virtual Celebration, happening on April 13, 2021.

And here’s the link to Rakel’s art show, opening May 8, 2021, “(s)mother 2.0 care in (a time of) crisis.

And here’s New York Caring Majority. Show them some love, get involved/donate, if you want to be a part of the change towards a more equitable and compassionate world. Their work is an integral part of the solution!

Rakel Stammer is an artist and teacher who primarily works in painting and drawing, but also dabbles in sound, installation, collage, writing, photography, printmaking and performance. Her work has been published in several magazines, anthologies and journals across the world and she has exhibited in Denmark, Sweden and the U.S. She was on the show before, pre-COVID in October 2019, talking about her series “The C%#& (C-word) Drawings” completed during a residency at Deer Creek Collective. Rakel speaks publicly and writes about capitalism, art, trauma, dominance and violence, seen through an anti-capitalist, intersectional feminist lens!

Carolita Johnson is a cartoonist (The New Yorker magazine) and illustrator from NYC. She spent 13 years in Paris, France, after graduating from Parson’s School of Design with a degree in Fashion Design. In Paris, she earned a masters degree in Modern Letters and Linguistics, and got some (admittedly very idiosyncratic) chops in pre-doctoral Medieval Anthropology, which turned out to be her gateway drug to cartoons and illustration. She is also a writer, has appeared on HBO and NPR, performed in various esteemed settings, is an alumnus of the O+ Festival, and most recently added teaching via SUNY New Paltz to her list of accomplishments.

See you on MOON-days starting in April!!!

Today’s show was engineered by Nick Panken, host of Freedom Highway, AND produced, hosted, and edited by ME, Theresa, so please forgive any hiccups.

#164 “Caliban and the Witch” Part 4 Book Discussion

Happy Women’s History Month! In collaboration with Women’s History Month Kingston, we continue the discussion of Silvia Federici’s Caliban and the Witch. This week we’re discussing Chapter 4, “The Great Witch-Hunt in Europe,” summed up here: “You are the true Hyenas, that allure us with the fairness of your skins and when folly has brought us within your reach, you leap upon us. You are the traitors of Wisdom, the impediment to Industry… the clogs to Virtue and the goads that drive us to all vices, impiety and ruin. You are the Fool’s Paradise, the wiseman’s Plague and the Grand Error of Nature.” Walter Charlton, Ephesian Matron, 1659. Lots to be said about this!!! Next week, we dive into Chapter 5, “Colonization and Christianization.” Let us know your thoughts and questions!

Feminist activism!!! Listen to and support the women of Ghana. Here’s their NPR story about being banished to the “witch camps.” Today we heard their songs, “Witch Song,” “Love,” “Hatred Drove Me From My Home,” and “We Are No Different Than You.”

FEMINIST ACTION! Support NY Caring Majority’s efforts to increase the wages for home care workers. Call Senate and Assembly leadership and let them know that #FairPay4HomeCare is a win-win for all New Yorkers! Let us know once you make the call here: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSfxBCAC…/viewform…

Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, (518) 455-2585

Speaker of the Assembly Carl Heastie, (518) 455-3791

SCRIPT: Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME]. I’m calling to urge [THEIR NAME] to include Fair Pay 4 Home Care in this year’s one-house budget and ensure that home care workers receive a wage of at least 150% of the minimum wage. Because of the current low pay, New York is the center of a workforce shortage in this sector, with even more home care workers leaving the workforce in droves right when we need them most. This is forcing many seniors and people with disabilities to live in nursing homes instead of receiving their services at home. Assemblymember Dick Gottfried and Senator Rachel May are sponsoring this budget priority, and the bill number is S5374. Will you include Fair Pay 4 Home Care in the one-house budget?
