Zen teacher, activist, and author of Being Black and Radical Dharma Rev. angel Kyodo Williams describes how nurturing a sense of inner well-being results in outward action that doesn't feel like a struggle.
Omega: How do you see self-care as a particularly radical act of freedom and healing? How can meet our individual needs to bring us closer to being able to meet the needs of the many?
angel: My colleague and dear friend Kerri Kelly and I talk about the difference between wellness and well-being. Well-being is about being well. It’s about having access to the resources to self-determine the unfolding of our lives because we’re not going to all do it the same way and we don’t need to. Self-care puts us in touch with a personal gauge of well-being.
"Our action expresses our voice and the voice of our heart." —Rev. angel Kyodo williams
