Like Words Together Reflections from the deep end of Practice.


Art Break

Today instead of my usual yoga my art group met. Online, as we have been since April.

I played on an idea someone suggested making Day of the Dead altars. As a white woman with no real roots in Mexico I felt uncomfortable with this and pointed out that I felt it was problematic.

While this gave food for thought, it took away a project! So I offered something about the different ways ancestor veneration is part of so many cultures, compared to the USA, which is very death averse. I then talked about personal ancestors, plus the side note that you don't have to honor people who were terrible. Then a meditation, so still some yoga.

People created powerful pieces! I am still moved by it.

I made a comic of myself teaching today.
