Pray With our Feet

Pray with our Feet is a podcast and community rooted in the radical love of Christ. We uplift the intersection of progressive Christian faith and social justice / activism. We believe we are called to make a difference in the world around us. Founded by Emelda De Coteau and Trudy Leocadio, mother and daughter. Find us on Instagram, and Twitter: @praywithourfeet.

Join us for an illuminating conversation with Dr. Marisela Gomez about prioritizing wellness in daily life, centering spiritual messages rooted in love (Jesus and the Disinherited, Howard Thurman), being intentional about how we use social media, and the importance of listening to the body, a transformative practice which helps us heal from various forms of trauma and more. 

Dr. Gomez is a mindfulness practitioner (ordained in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Order of Interbeing), public health scholar activist, and physician. Of Afro-Latina ancestry, she lives in Baltimore exploring the intersections of social justice activism in community building/research from a ground of love in action. 

She is the author of Race, Class, Power and Organizing in East Baltimore, and numerous book chapters in popular and scholarly publications. She practices with Baltimore and Beyond Mindfulness Community for people of color (POC) and social activists.
