This episode is ON FIRE, y’all!
There’s some discrepancy in the current mainstream social justice narrative. The cancel culture, binary thinking, shaming of white people, and more is NOT how we’re going to move forward and finally eradicate the symptoms of our collective trauma: poverty, racism, homophobia, transphobia, consumerism, the destruction of our planet, war, and more.
My guest and I aren’t pretending that everyone sitting in ayahuasca ceremony and crying together is going to heal the planet (though, we aren’t opposed to this idea either). The 3D steps we’re taking such as government reform, education reform, police reform, and legislating equality and access are important and necessary.
But, we think it’s time to inject some spirituality into the current mainstream social justice movement. Not spiritual by-passing, but radical self-responsibility for soul-healing.
This episode talks about all that and more.
