I reside, as an uninvited visitor on the unceded (stolen) Traditional Coast Salish Lands including the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) Nations, currently referred to as Vancouver, Canada. It is my work to become a welcome visitor.
Art on my shirt by Coast Salish artist Maynard Johnny jr. Killer Whale painted on an elk hide drum. The story for this drum design is about a boy who gets caught in a storm and his canoe capsizes and a whale saves him and brings the boy to safety.
"BE unfiltered" is the name of a brand-new podcast that I am hosting.
I am having free floating, unscripted conversations with my guests about things that matter, unfiltered. What do we filter and how can we be unfiltered? Who does it serve when we filter? How aware are we of how we are programmed, conditioned to uphold abusive systems?
With my guests I will navigate explorations, with curiosity, unveil all the attachments we have, go to the root of them, question the power of our language, the stories we tell ourselves, the constructs of how we are conditioned and support the destructive systems.
We will explore who we are in this time where much has changed and shifted through a worldwide collective experience of a pandemic. A collective experience works differently on us than individual trauma, the healing is different too and maybe we do not understand the power of the collective experience yet, how it works on us whether we like it or not, it affects us.
How can we connect and realize what we have in front of us, where we are part of and see what the new opportunities are. How can we scrape off all the crap that is thrown at us through the media, news and social media to find what is within, what resonates with who we are as human beings.
When we question the words we use, unpack the habits we have, and decolonize ourselves through the food we eat, there might be a chance that we can re-member who we are, in our souls, in our hearts, part of nature.
How can we find or create community and belonging, how can we acknowledge each other and be acknowledged. Who are we or do we chose to be in this time.
Unfiltered conversations to explore and be curious, share about life and what you see, and how that relates to you.
I would love to have you come on my podcast as a guest and be in unfiltered conversations with me.
