 Episode 47: "The New Civil Rights Movement and Our Relationships" is available on most podcast Apps, including Apple, Google, Spotify and Anchor, starting on Labor Day Sept. 7th 2020!

"Failure happens. At times, things do not go as planned. But, I’ve learned that even failure offers a road to success. I treat every experience as an opportunity to learn and grow beyond my fear; to live courageously and on purpose."- Jomil Bell

Jomil Bell joins us for a special Labor Day edition of the Running Anthropologist, tells about her work of highlighting American stories within the context of "The New Civil Rights Movement". She also reflects on personal movement of the body-mind-spirit, and creating change from within through relationships- with self and others. Jomil is a Dual Certified Life & Relationship supporting others in building healthy relationships, with self and others. By exploring our individual and collective stories, we can learn much more about what motivates us and how we might "move". Jomil comes from a familial line of social rights activists and organizers, and furthermore believes strongly in the power of movement and connectedness to our natural environments, weather that be from run/walking, swimming or biking. In her life coaching, she shares some great examples of victories brought about by nurturing these connections with body movement and building a positive relationship with oneself, and the stories one tells oneself.

We also discuss Relationship Coaching specifically, an effective system of support that allows many to overcome fear, change habits, and achieve personal goals.  We discuss how life coaching, specifically relationship coaching, provides fuel and tools for the holistic healing of social relationships and the systems that shape our lives. She also discusses her most recent project of telling stories of Black Americans through the Griots Podcast., which has had an amazingly introspective and timely take on what is going on in America.

In terms of healthy relationships, Jomil notes that "by reflecting and re-calibrating the internal relationships we have with the systems that socialize us, we can shift our relationship and the paradigm with those systems".

On a more personal level, Jomil is a wife and mom of two vibrant little girls, the creatress of a women's empowerment movement, a poet, the author of a self-coaching workbook, the creator and content curator for The Griots Podcast.
