Broken Open Podcast

Broken Open, a limited series podcast by the Jesuit Volunteer Corps where we speak with members of our community on how they've navigated spirituality, simple living, community, and social justice during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Your Broken Open Podcast Journal

Your Broken Open JVC Podcast Journal contains several prompts for you to sit with as you listen to the pod!

About the Pod
Based off of Rumi’s poem “Dance,” Broken Open is a podcast where we dive into how our JVC community has faced the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking through the lenses of spirituality, simple living, community, and social justice, we speak with folks who can offer an intentional voice of reflection as they continue to do essential work in vulnerable populations.

Podcast Jingle Lyrics
Dance when you're broken open,
bruised up and filled with scars
The wolves are fighting, inside your heart
Dancing will make you perfectly free
Oh won't you dance with me

Rumi Poem that Inspired the Pod Name
Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free."
