New Talk Art! We head to London's Pippy Houldsworth Gallery to meet leading artist Nengi Omuku (b.1987, Nigeria)!!!Grappling with ideas around gender, cultural heritage and race, Nengi Omuku's practice explores the complexities of identity, focusing on interior psychological spaces and how they manifest within the physical world. Rendered in oil paint on strips of sanyan – a traditional Nigerian fabric used for draped clothing – Omuku creates ethereal scenes of figures in constant flux, interacting with one another and the landscape around them. Inspired by both archival and current images taken from the Nigerian press and media, she creates worlds in which the distinction between bodies and nature is often blurred, reflecting on the intricacies around navigating place and belonging. The spectral figures in her works have their faces deliberately obscured; silent observers whose gaze penetrates out towards the viewer. Reflecting the fluctuation in her paintings between the figurative and abstract, they too resist singularity and instead look to embrace the collective experience, echoing the choruses in Greek theatre. Omuku's interrogations of the ambiguous spaces in between is equally explored in her use of materials. Weaving together strips of sanyan, she often combines vintage textiles from different fabrics, creating an amalgamation of materials to which she then reverses and applies oil paint to the back. The dichotomy between the intricately woven and carefully designed materials combined with the fluidity of the oil paint, speaks to living between cultures whilst at the same time feeling deeply connected to her country of birth.Nengi Omuku (b.1987, Nigeria) has completed both her BA and MA at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London. Omuku's work is inspired by the politics of the body and the complexities that surround identity and difference. With every journey, she considers how human beings position themselves in space in relation to other beings. Foremost on her mind are the ways in which the body needs to adapt in order to belong. It is constantly selecting and gathering its identity, mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Lily Hope is a traditional Chilkat Weaver from Juneau, Alaska. Both of her parents worked as full-time artists, so she grew up around the hustle of entrepreneurship and the responsibility of carrying on tradition. Her mom, Clarissa Rizal, learned how to weave from the late Master Chilkat Weaver, Jennie Thlunaut. Lily says that her mom probably felt the urgency of her own mortality, that it was imperative to teach her daughter the art of weaving because in the last 150 years there have been less than a dozen Chilkat ceremonial robe makers. So, Lily was introduced to it at 14 or 15 years old. It wasn't a pleasurable experience though. Her mom pretty much forced her into it, making her weave rows and rows before she could do anything leisurely like hang out with friends. It was a chore, but it also turned out to be her calling. Whether she's weaving among a group or teaching others how to do it, she finds her happy place in human connection. When she's with a group of other weavers, there's commiserating, there's camaraderie, there's knowledge sharing. When she's teaching, she's passing on tradition and she's helping her students understand techniques. Seeing them finally wrap their minds around the intricacies of a technique and implement it is one of her greatest joys. Lily weaves ceremonial regalia for museums now. She says that her mom helped her understand and be comfortable with the idea. That they've been making these Chilkat blankets and robes for hundreds, if not thousands of years, and many of them live in museums. And, for right now, museums operate as incubators, taking care of these pieces and sharing their stories, until it's time for them to be released back into the world.

After the turn of the twentieth century, schools played a pivotal role in the construction of French West Africa. But as this dynamic, deeply researched study reveals, the expanding school system also became the site of escalating conflicts. As French authorities worked to develop truncated schools for colonial "subjects," many African students and young elites framed educational projects of their own. Weaving together a complex narrative and rich variety of voices, Harry Gamble explores the high stakes of colonial education. With the disruptions of World War II, contests soon took on new configurations. Seeking to forestall postwar challenges to colonial rule, French authorities showed a new willingness to envision broad reforms, in education as in other areas. Exploiting the new context of the Fourth Republic and the extension of citizenship, African politicians demanded an end to separate and inferior schools.  Harry Gamble's book Contesting French West Africa: Battles Over Schools and the Colonial Order, 1900–1950 (U Nebraska Press, 2017) critically examines the move toward educational integration that took shape during the immediate postwar period. Growing linkages to the metropolitan school system ultimately had powerful impacts on the course of decolonization and the making of postcolonial Africa. Learn more about your ad choices.

This beautiful conversation with Tara Davis of Unbridled Goddess may require tissues! We covered much territory, from her ever-deepening work with positive reinforcement training and it's roots with her mare Misa, her deep commitment to creating a haven for her horses where all physical needs are met before moving forward and why she believes in a free-choice forage, her work with the Balance through Movement Method and how it's supporting her horses, and the passing of her much beloved stallion, and her powerful and very moving way of honouring him and his legacy. At Unbridled Goddess, Tara immerses herself in the teachings of the Herd, sharing the timeless wisdom of the Horse.  Weaving together lessons from science and spirituality, hers is a unique horsemanship approach with the purpose of empowering both horse and human.  Tara believes that opening our awareness to the possibilities of a more conscious and consensual relationship with our horses reflects in our interpersonal relationships – as well as our relationships with ourselves. Tara supports the unique connection between each horse and human through her 20+ years of experience in the equine industry, background in dressage, and education in holistic horse care practices.  In her training, Tara combines principles of classical dressage with a focus on biomechanics and the inner drive of the horse to achieve harmonious, healthy lifelong partnerships.  Her teachings are based heavily in positive reinforcement, with an adherence to LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) protocols, and incorporate the development of mindful awareness in riders.

Through her work, Meredith helps equestrians hone in on their values, helping them learn how to work with their emotions rather than fight against them. By learning how to find their definition of success, they can embrace their true nature both on and off the track. In this episode, you'll learn what the highly intuitive nature of working with horses teaches us about finding balance and connecting with our actual values. You'll start to identify whose values you're really living by, and whether or not those values are leading you toward your goals- or potentially on a wild goose chase to a destination not of your choosing. Finally, you'll learn how to successfully use your hard-won grit to find more balance, more time for rest, and offer yourself more grace. If you're ready to untangle your definition of success and get more deeply in tune with values that are truly your own, then this episode is for you. What You'll Learn in This Episode:Why the definition of success is personal (3:30)How to weave a little more grace into your grit (6:25)Creating a path to your goals using your values as a map (9:03)Why carving out time for nourishment takes grit (12:37)Making rest possible, even when it feels hard (16:57)Resources Mentioned:Article: Zippia 50+ Telling Paid Time Off PTO Statistics 2022 Average PTO In The United States Comments.

Wowza! Talk about cutting through the BS and and diving into the messy truth of spirituality on Earth (or at least in North America)! When I met Pleasance Silicki at her Lil ‘Omm yoga studio in 2013, how was I to know that she'd rock my world so deeply — each and every time we met! Pleasance went from being my yoga teacher, to business collaborator, to dear friend and now to fellow Priestess. And I'm so excited to share my reconnection with her — 9 years later — with you. In this episode, Pleasance he talks about her endless search for place in the world, the healing power of moon walks and cyclical living, honoring our bodies as temples of the soul, the importance of death ritual, sourcing wisdom from within. We speak to our taught resistance to ease and the rise of pleasure-validation, masculine structures that hold feminine flow. And of course, the way all of this supports us individually and collectively to be the activists that trailblaze the life-design and social-design needed to create a more inclusive and just world for ALL. Get ready to be blown away by this courageous multi-passionate, incredibly wise teacher and fire walker! Enjoy! xx Alex More about Pleasance and her magic: Weaving her way through many worlds, Pleasance Silicki ( she/her), M.S.ED, Rising Kohenet (Hebrew Priestess), is a multi- passionate community leader.

Django Generations: Hearing Ethnorace, Citizenship, and Jazz Manouche in France (U Chicago Press, 2021) shows how relationships between racial identities, jazz, and national belonging become entangled in France. Jazz manouche—a genre known best for its energetic, guitar-centric swing tunes—is among France's most celebrated musical practices of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It centers on the recorded work of famed guitarist Django Reinhardt and is named for the ethnoracial subgroup of Romanies (also known, often pejoratively, as “Gypsies”) to which Reinhardt belonged. French Manouches are publicly lauded as bearers of this jazz tradition, and many take pleasure and pride in the practice while at the same time facing pervasive discrimination. Jazz manouche uncovers a contradiction at the heart of France's assimilationist republican ideals: the music is portrayed as quintessentially French even as Manouches themselves endure treatment as racial others. In Django Generations: Hearing Ethnorace, Citizenship, and Jazz Manouche in France (U Chicago Press, 2021), Siv B. Lie explores how this music is used to construct divergent ethnoracial and national identities in a context where discussions of race are otherwise censured. Weaving together ethnographic and historical analysis, Lie shows that jazz manouche becomes a source of profound ambivalence as it generates ethnoracial difference and socioeconomic exclusion. As the first full-length ethnographic study of French jazz to be published in English, this book enriches anthropological, ethnomusicological, and historical scholarship on global jazz, race and ethnicity, and citizenship while showing how music can be an important but insufficient tool in struggles for racial and economic justice.

As author Michael Pollan observes: “The two biggest crises humanity faces today are tribalism and the environmental crisis. They both involve the objectifying of the other – whether that other is nature or other people.” How do we re-weave that web of relationships, and focus on our likenesses rather than our differences? In this program, racial justice advocates john a. powell, Eriel Deranger and Anita Sanchez explore how overcoming the illusion of separateness from nature and each other requires building bridges rather than burning them. They say the fate of the world depends on it. Featuring john a. powell, Director of the Othering and Belonging Institute and Professor of Law, African American, and Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley.

By dismantling the dominant narrative that we are machines driven by selfishness and competition, Jeremy helps us reconsider our human identity in the context of the deep intelligence and cooperativeness that animates life both within and around us. Such a recognition behooves us to drop the veil of supremacy that keeps us separate from the rest of nature and to embrace a path in which we can participate in changing the course from that of potential collapse to one of regenerating the Earth for symbiotic flourishing.

However, as acclaimed military historian Lloyd Clark reveals in his penetrating and insightful braided chronicle of their lives, they charted very different, often interrupted, paths to their ultimate leadership positions commanding hundreds of thousands of troops during World War II and celebrated as heroes in the United States, Britain, and Germany. Patton was born into a military family and from an early age felt he was destined for glory; following a disjointed childhood, Montgomery found purpose and direction in a military academy; Rommel's father was a former officer, so his pursuit of a military career was logical. Having ascended to the middle ranks, each faced battle for the first time in World War I, a searing experience that greatly influenced their future approach to war and leadership. When war broke out again in 1939, Montgomery and Rommel were immediately engaged, while Patton chafed until the U.S. joined the Allies in 1942 and the three men, by then generals, collided in North Africa in 1943, and then again, climactically, in France after D-Day in 1944. Weaving letters, diary extracts, official reports, and other documents into his original narrative, recounting dramatic battles as they developed on the ground and at headquarters, Clark also explores the controversies that swirled around Patton, Montgomery, and Rommel throughout their careers, sometimes threatening to derail them. Ultimately, however, their unique abilities to bridge the space between leader and led cemented their legendary reputations.
