Description

WELCOME to THE MYSTIC SOUL PROJECT'S THIRD VIRTUAL TEACH-IN!

The Mystic Soul Project is excited to announce the 3rd in a series of VIRTUAL TEACH-INS which will lean in deeper to areas of interest at the POC-centered intersection of mysticism, activism and healing. We are excited to engage in co-teaching and co-learning space virtually with The Mystic Soul community and offer up concepts and content that will engage us further in this exploration of POC-centering in our spiritualities, our healing and our engagement in action in the world. This THIRD SESSION will engage in Intergenerational Trauma & Indigenous Reclamation. This will be an interactive widening and deepening of engagement related to what was discussed on our most recent HEALING JUSTICE PODCAST EPISODE!

More on that and our other PODCAST EPISODES here: https://www.mysticsoulproject.com/podcast.

These Virtual Teach-Ins will be at no cost for attendees to make sure that this community dialogue and learning is accessible to all regardless of means. That said, we would be glad and grateful for you to give back into the economy of this community with a donation. You can donate to The Mystic Soul Project and our work here: https://donorbox.org/the-mystic-soul-project.

INTERGENERATIONAL TRAUMA & INDIGENOUS RECLAMATION with AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez and Teresa P Mateus

This session will explore the ways in which we, as POC, carry intergenerational trauma -- attached to our DNA, in our embodied memory and into our contemporary lived experiences as well as the ways we can reclaim our lineages before the rupture of this trauma and how this process of reclamation has potential ingredients for repair and healing of past and present trauma, today. It will explore the ways in which people are claiming and reclaiming their ancestral and indigenous lineages - through names, geneologies, storytelling, healing and spiritual rituals and more. We will have time and space to share in collective practice and community conversation. We will discuss the depth of our hurt and the gateways to healing - as well as the realities of our times that complicate both intergenerational hurt and reclamation.

A LITTLE ABOUT ANAYELSI VELASCO-SANCHEZ:

AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez is an IndoLatinx mujerista working to create and agitate her way through the latin diaspora.

She has been working as a faith-based community organizer for a decade and her experience both in interfaith and multi-issue organizing has provided her a unique understanding of the complex work involved in bridge-building and unifying diverse people around a shared purpose. The former Organizing and Programs Director for The Reformation Project (TRP), AnaYelsi is now a faith organizer, consultant, public speaker, writer, and visual artist.

AnaYelsi is working towards a vision of a liberating Church that faithfully pursues the biblical call to do justice in a way that honors Creator and creation. Committed to this vision, she is acting on faith and moving outside of traditional models of missional/prophetic work that hinges one’s ability to pursue justice on their relationship with systems and organizational hierarchies. She is trusting in a community of believers to partner with her in this endeavor – freeing her to go when called and to act and speak with the integrity necessary to fulfill this vision.17358555_10154675047937862_3730680352790471377_o

AnaYelsi is also a member of the Racial Justice Institute team (an initiative of Evangelicals For Social Action) and the Union of Affirming Christians.

She loves disappearing for hours in an art museum, feeding people a homemade flan of which she is unabashedly proud, reading everything she can get her hands on, and watching an absurd number of problematic made-for-tv holiday romcoms.

AnaYelsi lives in Washington, D.C. You can follow her on twitter at @brwneyedamzn and on Facebook.

A LITTLE ABOUT TERESA P MATEUS:

Teresa is a trauma therapist, professor, author and speaker at the intersections of mysticism, activism and healing. She is the co-founder and Executive Director of The Mystic Soul Project which is based out of Chicago but engages with community and POC-centered wisdom nationally and internationally. She is author of Mending Broken: A Journey Through the Stages of Trauma & Recovery and Sacred Wounds: A Path to Healing from Spiritual Trauma. You can find Teresa at www.mysticsoulproject.com.
