As we continue to exist under the realities of COVID 19 we have also faced personally and collectively the reality of racism and it's horrifying impact on our black brothers and sisters. With this on my heart, I reached out to Dr. Dee to talk about her work and how she sees us finding a way forwards.
Excited to connect with this powerful mujer, Dr. Dee #thetravelinghealer, doesn't hold back and shares her journey as a young Latina becoming pregnant, stepping into her power and claiming her path as a leader, healer and social justice wayshower. When asked what we need to be doing right now Dr. Dee says," Go Home. Go home and speak with your living ancestors. Talk about what's been said and not said. Go home in all it's resiliency and dysfunction because we've got work to do and it starts at home." We apologize for the sound quality but we really wanted to connect and share her wisdom and even though it's not perfect- we're here and she's sharing some insights that I took on as homework and that you may feel inspired to do as well.
