Planting Seeds for Equality - Marci Graham

EIn this interview with HAI’s Facilitator Marci Graham, we explore how to begin breaking down and changing patterns of inequity, patterns that are woven into our dynamics, our relationships, and our identities. Marci is a visionary who takes the stand for a future in which no woman, man or child is treated as less than whole. And she is also a brilliant teacher. Her compassion and wisdom gives her a unique perspective for understanding the underbelly of a history we are only just beginning to unravel. Trigger Warning: There are some mild references to boundary crossings in this episode. Marci Graham is uniquely and simultaneously soft and fierce in her compassion for human beings. She has a 30-year history of soul searching and personal transformation through movement, vision questing, painting, writing, sculpting, bodywork, and voracious reading. Marci began as a workshop participant at HAI in 2000, quickly incorporating HAI’s mission into her deep knowledge of self. As a Facilitator, Marci brings her strong desire for people to know and love themselves enough to awaken to their magnificence. Marci lives with her partner, Jason Weston, in rural California, where the natural beauty astonishes, delights, and invigorates her every day.

Unabashed bad-assery - Monica Jayne

EMonica Jayne speaks to the importance of really knowing ourselves. There is nothing to fix. Nothing to change. Rather, if we give ourselves permission to live fully and explore the full version of ourselves, we create a safer world for everyone. In this episode, Haje and Kate are taken through a series of brilliant concepts for deeply understanding our erotic and human selves. Learn about “erotic blue-prints,” listen in as we share personal stories about identity transformation, and share in the many giggle fits we have during this interview. We are so pleased to offer you this valuable, sometimes silly, and at other times heart-wrenching, conversation. May it bring you as much pleasure as it did us. Monica Jayne has facilitated, taught, nurtured, and witnessed 1000s of men and women across 45 countries and 5 continents transforming their lives and influencing them to discover, love, accept, and be who they truly are.
