Episode 26 - Choose Cultural Awareness instead of Racism!
In this episode, Angela and Patti's goal is always to discuss building better relationships, whether at home, work, and within the world we live in. Today's podcast is called "Choosing cultural awareness instead of racism". How did we decide to discuss this particular topic? Angela used to live in the USA, and she’s in Australia now where she grew up and been connecting with Patti while doing these podcasts. We were sharing our thoughts and feelings about the division between people in the USA and somewhat worldwide. What is Cultural Awareness? According to Collins Dictionary Someone's cultural awareness is their understanding of the differences between themselves and people from other countries or other backgrounds, especially differences in attitudes and values. Programs to promote diversity and cultural awareness within the industry. How can we take that food appreciation to the next level of cultural awareness? Angela shared the story of Daryl Davis, a black musician who focuses on curing racism by talking and making friends with members of the Ku Klux Klan. Here is the Youtube link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORp3q1Oaezw&feature=emb_title Angela shared about Megan Phelps-Roper, who grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVV2Zk88beY who began messaging with a man on twitter who started engaging with her about her tightly held religious and cultural views on life, and later she left the church, and they got married! (How's that for a dating strategy!) Patti wrote a blog post about Judging and Assuming the Worst in Others back in March of 2015 and she thinks it pertains more than ever. Angela shared if you would like to experience the energy of culture through dance, I’m teaching movement meditation classes that are great for relaxing and de-stressing. The movement meditation uses music from many world cultures, and music and dance is a powerful way to experience a culture without speaking their language - the verbal language. And I share in the movement meditation the feeling the music gives to you so that you can connect to your heart, heal and feet at one with yourself. https://dancewithangelahealing.as.me/ We would love to hear from you about this topic.
