Hey Ass kickers!
Welcome to episode 65 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast! Today we’ve got a topic I’m super excited to dive into and share with you: healing through creativity.
And we have a very special guest to share her wisdom on this subject: Rachael Rice. Rachael is an artist, writer, teacher, and speaker who travels the world performing and creating non-stop like a BOSS. She believes and teaches others to express themselves, and embrace the healing that happens in the process.
On today’s show we talk about why it’s so hard for us to be still (eek!), why humans are meaning-making machines (and how to deal with it) and how to redefine and understand yourself as a creative being.
We also talk about:
- What is our #1 resource on how to be more successful?
- What are “truthbumps” and why should we listen to them?
- Why you aren’t too sensitive – and how your emotions serve you.
- The opposite of letting go is digestion: and what that means.
- Why you should aim for Pinterest fails!
- How to use creativity as a vehicle for feeling and healing.
- How to choose who you share your art with, and who not to.
- And much more!
Rachael distills her wisdom today as we dive headlong into the connection between creativity, healing, vulnerability and how our souls benefit from artistic expression. Listen in and enjoy all of that and more in episode 65 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast!
Rachael Rice travels, teaches, performs, and creates nonstop.
And she has devoted most of her life to teaching others how to move through fear and confusion into creative expression. Her background is in critical pedagogy/constructivist theory and educating for democracy with a concentration in Art and English. Rachael has spent over 20 years in the public school classroom as a certified, licensed teacher, as well as in after-school and out of school programs that serve primarily at-risk youth, folks with disabilities and low-income communities. Her work has always been with the forgotten, the overlooked and the under-funded. Her heart beats for social justice, for equality, and for conscious awareness of her extreme privilege to be able to be of service in this life. Rachael's work matters because the answers to the world’s problems will come from very, very creative people. To be able to engage in the creative process, to find your flow, to fully express something inside of you, creates healing.
And Rachael is here to remind you we all need healing.
