08: Living Resistance with Author + Poet Kaitlin Curtice

What does it look like to hold the nuances of resistance, decolonization, storytelling, and everyday flourishing in today’s world? 

This A More Beautiful Way Conversation with Kaitlin Curtice is a thoughtful, shared reflection on what it looks like to slow down, to tend to our wounds, to build connection through storytelling and to continue on the journey of healing and decolonization. 

Kaitlin and I discuss:

  • the daily habits that ground the morning and orient our days

  • the need for grief and ritual as we move through life’s endings

  • how the wisdom of children is vital in our creation of a more beautiful future and world

  • the meaning of decolonization, both personally and collectively

  • the complexity of indigeneity and the importance of learning from indigenous peoples around the world 

  • rooting in gratitude as a spiritual practice 

  • writing and creativity as a pathway home 

This conversation is delightful and my hope is that you find nourishment for your inner and outer journey through listening.
