Tools for Revolutionary Healing

I believe the revolution is something that happens in many places. Our minds, our hearts, our bodies, our homes, our towns. It happens with every choice, with every tiny agreement we make, to be the change we wish to see in the world. It happens when we educate ourselves, it happens when we learn about other peoples' stories. The revolution includes art and food, songs and stories, letters to government officials, and words with friends! It happens when we choose to uplift the situation we are in, by sweeping the floor, wiping the windows, donating to a food bank, interrupting the every-day hustle and bustle to stop and smell the roses, or standing peacefully in the street while violence erupts...

On that note, I believe that we must heal ourselves and the world simultaneously.  A lot is broken, which gives us so much work to do! Joyful work with joyful purpose, is my wish for us all. We must embody all the changes we wish to see in the world.

Here are some tools I have found useful in my journey. I hope they can be of service to you, as well.
