Looking through the intersection of mental, spiritual and social justice lenses, our ability to see clearly and deeply on issues related to our health and liberation are central.  In the spirit of the “2 0 2 0” exhibit @ KLG, Enroue Halfkenny and Tagan Engel will discuss these notions of healing and liberation as related to their work and their lives together.  Enroue has a private practice “Healing and Liberation Counseling”, which integrates mental, spiritual and justice interventions.  Tagan is the producer of her own radio show and podcast, “The Table Underground: stories of food, radical love and creative social justice.”  Tagan and Enroue will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in October 2019. With 23 years of partnership in life, faith, work, and joy, they welcome this opportunity to be in conversation together.  There will be time for questions and conversation among those present.

Enroue Halfkenny, LCSW, of Healing and Liberation Counseling, is an Awo (priest of Ifa) within the traditional Yoruba religion from West Africa, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, an Artist and a Healing Justice Activist. Through his consulting, healing and private psychotherapy practice, he addresses emotional, mental, societal, physical and spiritual wellbeing issues for individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations.

Tagan Engel is a New Haven community leader, artist and activist on food justice, community development and racial and economic liberation. After more than two decades working in food and community building, her current focus is her radio show, podcast and website, The Table Underground: stories of food, radical love, and creative social justice. All of Tagan’s work from chef to organizer, parent to broadcaster is centered around the importance of relationships and empathy in healing injustice and the harms of white supremacy. As a white Jewish woman and Orisa practitioner, granddaughter of holocaust survivors and partner in a mixed race and faith family, Tagan welcomes the opportunity to be in conversation and action on both the internal and communal work of transformational change.
