Episode Two: Ria Righteous
Keywords:dearmouring, love, healing, Kersal Dale, heart leadership, education, trees, squirrels, childhood
In this first full conversation, Rajni Shah and Ria Righteous take time to allow words to emerge between them through deep listening. The conversation is intimate and personal, meditating on themes of grief, selfhood, family, renewal, and the long and difficult work of dearmouring the heart and body.
This episode is accompanied by a short offering in which Ria guides the listener through a meditation called ‘Breathing the Body’. The offering was recorded by Ria in Kersal Dale, near the river Irwell in Salford.
