Additions to Our Philosophy on Bodyminds, Asking for Help, Community, and Shame

We updated our philosophy page with additions on bodyminds, asking for help, community, and shame.

Asking for help is a wonderful way to build community & engage in meaningful collaboration.

In asking for help you also uplift others who want to show up for you.

What I have always been hoping to accomplish is the creation of community.

Community is magic.

Community is power.

Community is resistance.

Shame is not a weapon. Shame is toxic. It is the difference between “sorry I did” and “sorry I am.”
