In an era in which "resistance" has become tokenized, popular Indigenous author Kaitlin Curtice reclaims it as a basic human calling. Resistance is for every human who longs to see their neighbors' holistic flourishing. We each have a role to play in the world right where we are, and our everyday acts of resistance hold us all together. Curtice shows that we can learn to practice embodied ways of belonging and connection to ourselves and one another through everyday practices, such as getting more in touch with our bodies, resting, and remembering our ancestors. She explores four "realms of resistance"-the personal, the communal, the ancestral, and the integral-and shows how these realms overlap and why all are needed for our liberation. Listeners will be empowered to seek wholeness in whatever spheres of influence they inhabit.… (mere)

Living Resistance is about resistance and how you can use it in everyday life and not just at protests or boycotting things. Kaitlin B. Curtice looks at resistance in different realms: the personal, the communal, the ancestral, and the integral. She explains each realm at the beginning of each section to help the reader understand it more thoroughly.

I was kind of excited about this book. I’ve been trying to get into reading more nonfiction and I thought this would be one I would enjoy. Maybe it just wasn’t really for me.

I felt like it was a bit repetitive, which makes sense because it’s about life and life is messy and isn’t always straight forward, but when I’m reading a different story with the same message at the end, it gets a bit boring.

It was also a bit more religious than what I was looking for, not so much spiritual.

I feel like a lot of people will be able to take from this, but it just didn’t speak to me as I would hope it would.

I will say, it did make me think about how I want to look to my descendants as their ancestor and what I would want to leave behind for them.

*Thank you Brazos Press and NetGalley for a digital advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ( )

Thoughtful look at faith in the context of revision and challenge to Status quo

I’m looking forward to discussing this with my sister. I think it would make a good book club book if read in small chunks at a time. I appreciate the spaces she created to stop and reflect. I did feel like I needed someone else with whom I could discuss what I read. There is so much here. It would really help to hear others interpretations and suggestions. ( )

Living Resistance is an inspiring book which leaves me (as a reader) feeling empowered and with a renewed sense of hope. I appreciate the time Kaitlin has spent in Vermont in particular, reminding me of the universal importance of grounding, both physically and spiritually in place. Although I found myself resonating with the book as a whole, I was drawn closely to the chapters on "Radical Self-Love as Resistance" and "Prayer as Resistance." I appreciated the poetry, art and the final resistance commitment. I feel a renewed sense of purpose in knowing that there are others who care deeply for Mother Earth and are willing to ask difficult questions, trying to cherish our planet and protect our ecosystems. Curtice speaks frankly of colonization and the need for active decolonization and anti-racism. She brings many other intuitive authors to bare on the discussion providing thoughtful quotes and context throughout (so I have a list of additional books to read as well as being reminded of some of my favorites). The book is somewhat sequential, divided into the realms of personal, communal, ancestral and integral--- this order and organization I found quite helpful. Kaitlin continues "falling more in love with people and with words," (p. 39) and for this I am grateful and hope to follow suit!

This was my first book by the author, and I am glad I "found" her. It's is a book to keep, to periodically review and rethink about caring for my physical and psychic health and that of the community around me. I appreciated the repetition or looping back to knit together the four realms. The book is a call to reflection and action, with a path to guide us. ( )
