Bodies, Shame, and Learning

Are you tired of being a brain in a jar?  A content dispensary?  Do you long for a different way to teach and learn, one that welcomes and embraces you and your students in all your full, radiant humanity?  We want that too!  In this episode, emareena & ambar discuss radical self love and how its presence could transform our experience of teaching and learning.  

What do you think would change if we embraced the necessity of radical self love as educators?
