Episode description and synopsis
In this time we are asked to walk the “twin-trail,” to balance the necessity for action in the world, as well as take responsibility for that which our current climate is reflecting within ourselves. Jessica is the founder at MEISOU, a brand supporting people in embedding rituals of mindfulness and meaning into their everyday life. As a Brazilian women, global traveller and mindfulness facilitator in-training at UCLA, I’ve always admired her ability to honour her internal landscape and integrate both action and insight.
In this spacious and tender conversation we explore how we might honour our privilege in this time, tending to the work we must do within ourselves whilst also taking wisdom-guided action. If you’re also sitting with questions surround how to show up in this time, what “sacred activism” means in this time and where to place your energy, this one might just offer some feathers for your tool-bag.
Jessica is the founder of MEISOU, a lifestyle brand and community supporting people in embedding rituals of mindfulness and meaning into their lives; through products, retreats and experiences. As a mindfulness-facilitator in training at UCLA MARC, she has been someone I’ve admired for her ability to honour and integrate both the ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ work, especially in times when radical self, cultural and systemic renewal are vital.
