Nonjudgmental Stance at the Intersection of Sin and Gay Intimacy - Repost from Dec 09 2020
Judgment comes easily to most of us - at best, it can help us survive. At worst, it can leave us so triggered we can't function. Listen in to explore a real moment, and how to use Nonjudgmental Stance as a tool that can turn hard conversations into teachable moments. Post-Note: This episode uses the term "intersex", defined by isna.org as "a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. For example, a person might be born appearing to be female on the outside, but having mostly male-typical anatomy on the inside. Or a person may be born with genitals that seem to be in-between the usual male and female types.

Empowering yourself to pull rank: My homeless neighbor Repost from Sep 27 2020
Originally for this episode we asked "Have you ever practiced 'being human' to a person who's houseless? It's not something we're ever asked to do, just 'be human'. We're constantly being asked to be smarter, faster, stronger, donate, give - but what does it really mean to you to practice being human?" What's occurred to Drama Therapist Nina since then is the reality that we really need to be asking: what does is mean to be the kind of human who dares to say they are working on their Empowered Human self, honoring their own truth without oppressing themselves and others?
