Shit just got real
"And so today, in the name of all those beautiful Black people who have died, you're listening to me" - Dr. Lana Holmes.
Please note this episode was recorded on June 4, 2020.
In this episode, we discuss New Age's problem with Black Lives Matter, specifically practitioners who profess that "All Lives Matter" or who identify as "color blind." Dr. Lana Holmes explains why refusing to acknowledge systematic racism is harmful and opens up about her painful interactions with white spiritual practitioners. This is an important conversation and one that we feel not enough spiritual practitioners are having. Thank you for listening!
