27 Practice: Compartmentalizing in a Healthy Way with Je Naé Taylor of BYP100 Healing & Safety Council

Join us for a personal practice from Je Naé Taylor about compartmentalizing in a healthy way. How do we organize our thoughts and emotions around conflict so we can do what we need to do in the moment, and carve out space to process it thoroughly at an appropriate time? You don’t need any specific supplies or space, just listen wherever you are.

Check out the conversation and practice in episode 26 to hear our conversation with BYP Healing and Safety Council, focusing in on both preventional and interventional healing & accountability.

About our guests

BYP100’s Healing and Safety Council is a body of members dedicated to cultivating and supporting self-determined forms of healing, cultural production, and harm reduction. HSC exercises the conceptual tenants of the Healing Justice Framework; HSC activates this work through [a] Creative Healing Praxis which is focused on prevention, intervention, and transformation. This looks like the creation and provision of an ongoing base of preventative care modules, community based intervention to interpersonal conflict or violence, and transformative ritual through culture creation and visioning. More about BYP100.

Je Naé Taylor is a daughter of medicine folx and firefighters, and is living as a Black girl storyteller, shapeshifter and visionary. Je Naé is most curious about the practice of joy and the sustenance needed to live extraordinary. She is a founding member of the Healing & Safety Council of BYP100.

Conversation: Interventional Healing and Accountability

Check out the corresponding conversation where JeNaè Taylor & Kai M Green join us to talk about interventional healing and accountability practices - aka what to do when harm occurs in our organizations. They share about how they’ve built out intentional practices that anticipate potential harm, how they use role plays and scenarios to come to agreements and processes together before situations happen, and their commitment to supporting and including harm-doers in their restorative processes.
