This week on DIJ, Shadiin laughs at Delma's natural-born face. They discuss how meaningful it is to have close connections with their respective children. Our hosts discuss the promises and pitfalls of American life and how it impacts their views on patriotism vs packing it up, while in Black and Brown bodies-as well as what we saw in our fathers and grandfathers who served.
DIJ then welcomes, Aayaan. Aayaan, is a transformational coach and founder of Unearth Freedom, LLC and a consultant at Metropolitan Group. As a healing justice facilitator and cultural change guide, Aayaan helps systematically disadvantaged and purpose driven leaders experience freedom, feel powerful, and act with purpose.
They discuss how often we show up with an overwhelming need to "prove" ourselves, and how we can begin to "remove all the layers" that prevent us from healing. They discuss how Aayaan awakened to their work and how their work with Unearth Freedom seeks to help others recover from feelings of shame and loss that prevent us from engaging in the type of emotional consciousness that our world needs so desperately today.
