Card #8: Strength: The Strength to Pause & Listen with Afro Yoga Founder Angie Franklin

Featuring Angie Franklin of Afro Yoga

If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive – Audre Lorde

The moments with womxn and folks that I interview feel like such gifts. Its as if time and the universe has forged our friendship that may have been from lifetimes ago, yet is arriving at exactly the right time.

This for me, was how I felt after talking to Angie. We talk spiritual fierceness, internal strength and compassion for ourselves and for others.

We recorded this in August, yet it feels fitting as move into Fall, and what it feels like when we truly give ourselves permission to slow down.

Show Note: In the intro I say undeserved communities in reference to who Angie is support, when I meant to say under-served communities. Please note this error, and apologies for this mistake.
