HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-JAN. 5, 2017-SHEROES & HEROES: ARTISTS

Compiled by Mercy Junction Assistant Director, Reiki Master, and Psychic Kali Meister

“Change, when it comes, cracks everything open.” ~ Dorothy Allison

Dorothy Allison is dedicated to safer sex and is active in feminist and lesbian communities. She is one of the founders of the Lesbian Sex Mafia, along with Kirstie Friddle of Quincy, Illinois. This is an information and support group for women of all sexual orientations and identities.

Describing herself as a feminist and a working class storyteller who writes to change the world, Dorothy Allison is an accomplished writer and speaker who frankly tackles gender, class, violence, and sexual orientation.

Today’s Action: What makes change so difficult for us is that we fear it. So, we must assess our fears. Scientists and life coaches call our Amygdala—the region of our brain in charge of feelings of anxiety, fear, anger and negativity—our “lizard brain.” How about you give your lizard a name, personality, and identity. Anamorphose that lizard in your head. Write a letter to the lizard as if it were its own individual.

Today’s Sharing: Share your lizard letter with the community and with us at the Holy Heretic Facebook page at facebook.com/holyhereticzine.

** Don’t forget your gratitude journal at the back of your print edition of HolyHeretic!
