“We all are hearing the words, ‘I can’t breathe’ across our nation, but it’s important that we step back and take the time to breathe so that we are there to stand up for those who have lost their breath.”
— Twanda Prioleau
Listen in on our interview with Rev. Twanda Prioleau, pastor and teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, as we discuss habits of caring for one's own soul through the hard work of fighting injustice.
I met Rev. Twanda Prioleau this past winter in our clinical mental health graduate program and so appreciated hearing her thoughts on personal self-care practices in the midst of all of the various roles we often hold as women. As we are all navigating the current crisis of the pandemic and heightened tension around race and justice issues, I reached out to Twanda to see if she would offer her voice to our community, especially regarding self-care and justice work for professional women and women in higher education. In our conversation Twanda graciously brings a wealth of wisdom and pastoral care, helping us consider how we can own our story and find healing in that process.
