“The First Line of Defense is Self Love” with Ana Joanes

Ana Joanes, director of the film Wrestling Ghosts and creator of the podcast Healing Our Ghosts, spoke with HMM’s Sina Basila Hickey about her work, what stress does to the body, self-love, teaching the impact of trauma, and more. Ana Joanes created teaching curriculum to go along with her film so that teaching her film can open up larger discussions about trauma, social justice, and self-healing.
