Staying Sane Amidst Mass Psychosis: An Interview
Harness Your Breath by Kailea Sonrisa / JUL 12 , 2017
A week and a half ago I got to spend my afternoon in deep conversation with three woman who have greatly impacted my last year. Elder Joanna Macy, Morgan Curtis and I sat down to be interviewed by Ayana Young for, For the Wild's - Sisters Bonded In Action - series. Our topic, 'Staying Sane Amidst Mass Psychosis'. Ironically I was feeling incredibly upset that morning, wondering how it was that I was going share about staying sane. While preparing over breakfast, I sat down and re-read one of Joanna's interviews from earlier this year. The message that rang through had to do with a response she gave to the question, "Why do you do this work?" "I'm doing this work so that when things fall apart, we will not turn on each other,"she responded. I needed this reminder. The act of coming together, the act of talking it out, the act of building relationship are the acts that I am here to do. Just like all of you, I don't have all of the answers, but I do have friends, and somehow this in itself is enough to get me through.
"Staying Sane Amidst Mass Psychosis” is an interview that features Deep Ecologist, Joanna Macy and Spiritual Ecology Fellows, Morgan Curtis and Kailea Frederick. Interviewed by Ayana Young, founder of For the Wild, their collaborative interview brings insightful and relevant thoughts on how we can live into the sacred on behalf of life.
Sisters Bonded In Action, is about women coming together to deconstruct so that we can continue to raise each other up.
