La serpiente madre

He estado leyendo sobre la Rueda Medicinal Andina, mejor conocida como La Chakana. Citando al colectivo Nativo América de K’ari Otorongo: Las ruedas medicinales o de la vida, son herramientas milenarias que los pueblos o naciones indígenas u originarias han ideado para la compresión y relación con el cosmos. Son un gran legado universal de …

NEW EBOOK EDITION of Meanwhile (2020), my debut poetry collection, OUT NOW

Happy National Poetry Day! The theme this year is “choice”. Particularly, “why did you choose poetry?” I didn’t choose poetry. Poetry chose me, and I chose to follow suit. A surprising, rewarding, visceral, intriguing, playful and mindful path I have been proud to take these few years. It started as an invitation into poetry and …

La herida de la humillación

Lise Bourbeau habla de las cinco heridas de la infancia. Esas llagas que nos toman desde niños y que, inconsciente y dolorosamente, guían nuestras conductas y patrones dañinos a través de la adultez al menos hasta que aprendemos a notarlos, analizarlos, amarlos, desarmarlos y disolverlos. Una de esas heridas es la de la humillación, generada …

FREE training in Body Consciousness with Lea Kaufman

For the past few months, some people have noticed a gradual change in my demeanour and attitude.

Even …

It means “people of this Earth”

what I am the most is tired. Tired of reductionism, of pity, of milk of sorrow and separation from the Earth, of detachment from the surrounding and inner cosmos. Tired of a blind denial of the unknown, of pseudo-intellectual and social enlightenment leading to darkness. Tired of edgy postures and their thousand paper cuts. Of persistent trauma and drama, underlined so many times the original words have long ago faded and only liquid see-through highlighter remains. Of placing more stones on my chest rather than digging my way out. Digging my way through.

Published on… Good Night Out Vancouver zine

Good Night Out Vancouver just released a zine about nightlife and safety from the perspective of Black, Indigenous and other People of Colour. It’s a wonderful collection of anecdotes and images, poetry, essays, thoughts, ideas. It’s available on print and digital, sliding scale prices. One of my poems, “Ottoman”, was published on this zine.

Writing this right after my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Feeling exhilirated and joyful at the moment.
