Stories shape us

I write because I believe that words and stories have the power to shape our worlds. I write about the intersections of history, identity, politics, healing, and spirituality for Truthout, Tikkun magazine, Bitch, make/shift, and various anthologies.

Here are two pieces I wrote about Jewish ritual and somatic healing from trauma (in PDF form):

Making Amends Healing from Individual and Collective Trauma and Loss

A Ritual Dismantling of Walls: Healing from Trauma through the Jewish Days of Awe

Here are links to some of my other writing:
