How might we think and act differently if we recognized ourselves in our “Long Body”—seeing our continually transforming identities beyond our physical bodies into the past and the future? In the midst of an increasing loneliness epidemic, where so many feel disoriented, disassociated, and uprooted, how do we begin to regain a deep sense of belonging to dwell in place?

In this episode, we're joined by Dr. Leny Mendoza Strobel, a Kapampangan from Central Luzon in the Philippines, who is currently a settler on Wappo, Pomo, and Coast Miwok lands.

Leny is a Founding Elder at the Center for Babaylan Studies and a Professor Emerita in American Multicultural Studies at Sonoma State University.

The musical offering in this episode is I’m Not a Mountain by Sarah Kinsley.
