Beautiful day with rev angel
In this profound conversation, Tami Simon and Rev. angel take a deep look at how society shapes our sense of belonging—and how we can all take back the power to belong for ourselves.
A companion conversation in the On Being episode that has been re-aired for the third time — Krista catches up with Rev. angel Kyodo Williams on how she’s keeping her fearlessness alive through pandemics and rupture.
This prophetic conversation, which Rev. angel Kyodo Williams had with Krista in 2018, is an invitation to imagine and nourish the transformative potential of this moment — toward human wholeness.
“… why do we practice? Well we practice to be able to withstand the truth of that. That there is no answer. There is no book. There is no script. If you get to the Jedi mountain, & they burned all the books, what will you do then?”
sliding toward a full two years in a pandemic, with an Omicron surge and a perhaps reluctant turning of a corner into endemic, entitles one to more rest to process, heal, and integrate.
the past month was full of transitions that were, for me — ever the introvert that happens to speak publicly — unspeakable thus far. still, I’m grateful for every person who takes the time to read these words, scan the stories, and hopefully benefit from a share or two of what moves me. I’m grateful for a platform to say directly, simply: thank you.
