In this episode of Traverse Talks with Sueann Ramella, Petra leads a mindfulness exercise that encourages a sense of awareness and connection with the earth. Sueann and Petra discuss religion. They talk about how the promise of salvation is sometimes used as an excuse to deny accommodations that allow people with disabilities to enjoy life now. Petra describes her own relationship with chronic pain and how disabled people offer valuable temporal and spatial differences to the world. Listen to this episode to learn about these differences and cultivate a “delicious” new perspective of the world around you.
