ashley_judd Compassion means, literally, to suffer with. May we suffer with #ahmaudarbery ‘s family and loved ones, and our communities of color who live in fear of white supremacy. May we rigorously examine our own unconscious bias, privilege, and internal attitudes that inadvertently support systems of oppression and harm. May we always know, I cannot hurt another person without hurting myself.

ashley_judd Join me tomorrow at 11am EST / 8am PST for a conversation with @suemonkkidd as we discuss her new book, #TheBookofLongings. This is an inspirational read and I am so looking forward to discussing this #nytimesbestseller. Do you have a question that you want to ask Sue? Comment below on this post and it may be answered on Friday! See you tomorrow!
ashley_judd Oh, yes. THIS book. #BookOfLongings by the beloved @suemonkkidd is beautiful, fascinating, compelling, breathtaking....I was torn between reading it compulsively and putting it down to draw it out longer. Meticulously researched, and equally as lived from a soul of her own longings for voice and the feminine divine, this book will capture and captivate you. And, I am so honored to announce I get to do an Instagram Live with Sue on 1 May, to be in conversation with her about her latest and soon to be cherished novel. You’re about to meet Ana, a young woman with largeness inside her, with longings and a need for voice, who also happens to be Jesus’ wife.

ashley_judd Thank y’all so much for the kind and thoughtful birthday wishes. I wanted to share with you the innocence and creativity that has marked my days of celebration. I dreamt riots over when to re-open the American economy killed folks and then woke up an equally valid and literal reality of colored construction paper, five little voices singing, and their hands clasping mine as they led me to my birthday art treasures. We live in polarizing times that require my best non-binary thinking: both//and are true. My circumstances are placid and dear, #shelteredinplace with my Love in safety and calm in an orderly country with stable leadership. Yet I feel emotional and spiritual anguish about the loss of millions of jobs, the intimate partner violence and child abuse that has hellishly escalated and from which there is neither relief nor help. I am thankful for my meditation practice, and teachers over the years from @seanecorn to @janetstoneyoga to my preachers and @klontzted who have taught me to hold complexity and multiple truths at once. I am happy. I am unhappy with the state of the world. I live in freedom. I am not free until all people are free. I have choices. I must rest and practice self care. I will not rest and I must work ceaselessly to expand choices for the oppressed, the poor, the voiceless. I am grateful to be here. Yet I wish I were with my friends in a red light district Kolkata in India, where they are starving, or in an orphanage in Kentucky where some child is lonely. Who are we to question God? Yet my God has always cherished my doubt. S/he loves my feistiness and zeal. So on my birthday I give thanks for all if it, what we call good, the unknowing, the unbecoming, and most especially the spiritual gift I perhaps most appreciate: mercy. Above all, may we be merciful to each other. That is my birthday wish. #switzerland
ashley_judd See y’all later! Headed into the #Congolese #rainforest for a month to camp in the bush and follow the endangered #bonobos. It’s my second trip this year to see our closest living relatives, from whom we have much to learn. #bonobos are egalitarian, a female is always the alpha, sons get status through their mothers, females migrate out and create friendship bonds with older females in their new group to create coalitions that lead to social cohesion and stability, and most notably: there is no sexual coercion or assault in bonobos. Let’s take a closer look at how they do that! @timesupnow
ashley_judd Me and sleeping outside. It’s a thing. And in a spot like this, I’d say going indoors qualifies as lunacy! So grateful to be seeing the world and it’s breathtaking places. And I still love #home and the @greatsmokynps the best, even as I am stunned by #Switzerland and @unesco world heritage sites #oeschinensee
ashley_judd Over this important weekend, I unplugged from devices and headed to the wilderness. I slept on the earth, without a tent. I climbed, one tiny toe and finger hold at a time, towering ancient mountains and stood tall, competent and capable, on top of them. I wondered about the news but did not turn on my phone. At that point, it was going to be what it was going to be. My heart had a sinking feeling even as I let nature deal in her soothing, enlivening way with my body and soul. I was happy in spite of the foreboding, because I was in the moment. I knew I had given resisting this ugly confirmation my personal all. When I came out of the woods, taking a train through the bucolic countryside, the dispiriting reality assaulted me. But I am strong. I am fierce. I am resilient. And we are fighters. This is by no means over. “The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice.” I believe you Christine. I believe you, Survivors. And I believe that those who voted for this patriarchal _____ think they did the right thing. And I believe somehow this savage state and condition that afflicts everyone of us must be broken open and changed and I am deeply contemplating what that would look and sound like, and what I can do to contribute. Everyone is hurt. Everyone needs healing, including our country. #timesup #metoo #vote
ashley_judd Happy Birthday to my #mama. I embrace every day how fortunate I am to have a mother who is so proud of me and supports my every endeavor, my voice, leadership, and courage. Whether she is hugging me and telling me how beautiful I was to her when I was born (and what a brown little baby I was) or telling me what an extraordinary woman I am today, or holding my hand in church, or picking me up from the airport (an endless errand) she is loving me well today and I am keenly aware of it.
ashley_judd Missing the #Congo and the endangered #bonobos. Longing for the month that I lived outdoors 24 hours a day and bathed in the river with butterflies. Up at 3:30 am, we started walking about 4:15am to be at the bonobos’ nests before they woke up for the day. That magic of hiking in the rain forest in the pre dawn is so powerful. The transition back to buildings, pavement, interiors and city noise has me quite sad and very ready for my next #camping trip, which will be to @greatsmokynps later this month. We were made to be #outdoors. #nesttonestmf #rural_love
ashley_judd Remembering these two extraordinary loves of my life on #nationaldogday #shug & #buttermilk. I think of them daily, dream about them often, and am so grateful for the 17 & 16 years God entrusted me with them. We traveled the world, hiked, and loved well. They were as at home on set as they were in the wilderness. Special and unforgettable.
ashley_judd Luke was a serious actor, hardworking, creative, determined. He was also kind
and a lot of fun. #NormalLife was an intense and wonderful shoot and I am grateful to have worked and been friends with him. Rest in peace dear soul, and deepest condolences
to his whole family. -AJ .

ashley_judd Hello, my dear mountains, where I come simply to be and to hike the solitary back country. The great #Smoky Mountains National Park, my Avalon, where I can sink my #Appalachian roots deeply into the soil even when it’s frosty and frozen. I love the park when it’s empty, and these hikes have given me a chance to reflect on my year. As usual, it has been a rich one, filled with progress, and unusually, physical pain (a 4 1/2 month siege migraine that saw me in the hospital three different times (that Chinese medicine healed) and included a 30 pound weight gain that I’m only now able to address by hiking 50+ miles in 5 days), my appointment at the Women and Public Policy Program at the Kennedy School Government at Harvard University, the upcoming Harvey Weinstein rape trial, and special times with my beloved family and friends. The Secretary General of the UN honored me with a lovely award, which merely brought Necessary attention to vulnerable girls and women in complex humanitarian settings world wide and how @unfpa seeks to meet their sexual and reproductive health rights and needs. And, I made yet another two trips to the Democratic Republic of Congo to see the endangered bonobos with my love. I am happy, whole, I feel useful and loved, at peace with my Creator, and know that while life isn’t always fair, it is good.@greatsmokynps #getoutside
