“I’m learning that spiritual and emotional work also manifests physically.”
“Everything I do is about health promotion,” Danielle Burrell of FII-New Orleans reports. “For me that means what can I do to get my people healthy and well?” She teaches her community about how spiritual and emotional work manifests physically for empathetic people. Danielle is known in her community as a convener of sacred circles and social gatherings. She is available to support the health of others, and like many in the FII community, believes in the importance of everyone in the community having access to health and wellness resources. For her, it’s vital that these resources are sensitive to the many pain points a person may be experiencing, whether because of their current conditions or due to generations of stress related to oppression.
