Body Trust Summit 2020

What a week we chose for our online Body Trust Summit! When we started working on this project last summer, who would have known what an intense time this would be. We recorded our conversation with Desiree Adaway and Ericka Hines in January (Dana was sick that day but did not want to miss out!) and it aired on March 17th, the final day of the summit. When we listen to this talk within the context of where we are now as a global community, we feel the information they shared with us is so needed in the world right now. So…we are making this one talk available to everybody, for free, through the end of April.

We explore a variety topics in our conversation, including a question Desiree posed at a retreat last year:

“What if the kind of care we're really talking about isn't a form of self-care but a form of divestment?”

Here’s a little taste of what is in the video:

Desiree: I don't think we talk enough about community care, where we're caring for ourselves and each other in very clear ways. For me, that is divesting from the patriarchy - when I’m taking care of other women and other women are taking care of me, when I'm taking care of black and brown folks and black and brown folks are taking care of me - that feels like resistance and that feels like divesting from what's out there…it is time for us to divest in so many ways. Because these systems don't love and care about us. They were not built to love and care for us. They will never love and care for us. And the sooner we grasp that, the sooner we can switch. We can change our thinking around how we're broken and don't fit in to how that system is actually broken, and it's not us.

Ericka: How can we love up on each other and be in solidarity with each other, even when we don't like each other? How can we do that on a conscious and daily level that allows us to know that our ego is showing up and to set that aside? How do we set our ego aside? 

Desiree: How do we divest from that internalized dominance that we have? That internalized shame that we carry? That doubt that we've let grow and manifest in ourselves?

Yes, Yes, YES!!!

If you want to listen to the whole talk, you’ll find the video below. This conversation was part of our weeklong Body Trust Summit. If you’d like to hear more talks from our online summit, scroll down to the end of the page and you’ll see the options for purchasing access to all of them.
