Let me ask you this:
Are you content with your social justice?
I'm asking because I know what it's like to have secret misgivings and feel like a traitor.
Do you know my story?
I founded a non-profit and built a highly successful racial justice business and ran both of them since 2015.
But something was missing in my social justice.
I was working around the clock, but my work stayed at the tip of the iceberg.
I was too busy to confront the big questions I was having about racial justice and the “cancel culture” pervading progressive movements.
I was afraid of being cancelled and taken out of context.
I was starting to think "unthinkable" thoughts about how some justice organizations have a vested interest in a polarized and traumatized constituency so that they could keep their funding and relevance.
I witnessed or heard about progressive organizations being torn apart when "anti-racism" was used as a cover for bullying and power grabs.
I started to dread meetings; become irritable and impatient; and lose my joy.
Something was really wrong!
But I kept plowing ahead because I did not know who I would be if I stopped.
Finally after an emergency root canal; big upheaval in my kids; and a blowout argument with progressive friends...
I heard the message to "stop everything" and that the trees in my backyard wanted to adopt me.
That was in 2021.
Since then I have apprenticed myself to the earth, especially trees, and found practices that elevate humanity and help me to be my authentic intergalactic self.
If this stirs you, come a little closer!
I don't rely on fear, shame, and guilt as drivers.
Now, I'm sleeping better than I have in my entire life.
I see my kids as my teachers and have released the self-judgement .
I am healing my deep seated money fears.
I am exploring "racial justice" as a strategy not a goal.
And as a Queen in her late 50s, I am rediscovering my childlike joy and possibility.
