In this bonus episode I offer critiques of colonial systems and academic assumptions about religion and medicine. I share a bit about my research and experience of an unfolding relationship with copal. The decolonial healing path continues to draw me in. I am deeply grateful and increasingly aware of all that I need to un-learn and re-learn.
This is a project for a wonderful course I took this spring at Harvard Divinity School called "Religion and Healing: An Anthropological Perspective."
I am really grateful for a chance to TALK. IT. OUT. (in the quiet, dark covid-19 cave). Because so much of this year of online school has been in very isolated conditions. So I get a bit nerdy. I'd love to hear what you think!
