Season 2 | Episode 13
47m | Jul 8, 2023

In this critical episode, we explore the potential pitfalls of spiritual work within spiritual spaces and emphasize the importance of rejecting alt-right influences. Drawing from personal experiences, we discuss the connections between traditional beliefs, such as those found in church settings, and their potential migration into new age spirituality if old beliefs are not properly deconstructed.

Examining the problematic origins of the "starseeds" concept, we uncover its associations with white supremacist ideals that fueled historical atrocities. We also address the controversial idea that individuals choose their life situations, inadvertently reinforcing alt-right narratives that place blame on the oppressed rather than addressing systemic issues. Additionally, we confront the issue of cultural appropriation in spiritual spaces, highlighting how it perpetuates a colonization mindset and feeds into white supremacy.

Join us as we navigate the complexities of spirituality and social responsibility, challenging the presence of alt-right influences. Through critical self-reflection and a commitment to inclusivity, we strive to create respectful communities that honor diverse cultures while actively rejecting harmful ideologies.
