Several years ago, I was drawn to Catrice M. Jackson because she had referenced a quote from the Dalai Lama that, when I heard it, had acted like an alarm clock for my soul.
“The world will be saved by the Western Woman.”
When a colleague shared those words with me, I was stopped in my tracks, started weeping (I’ve never reacted to anything in this way), and suddenly knew that all of the puzzle pieces of my life were coming together. This event marked the beginning of a shift in my business – away from “Law of Attraction” teacher to my call to work with professional women.
I had “stumbled” upon Catrice M. Jackson through social media.
When I saw a video where she, too, referenced the same quote, but alerted me to the fact that the Dalai Lama’s vision would never be realized as long as White Women did not do OUR anti-racism work.
This was the beginning of:
a) my own denial cracking
b) waking up to the racism embedded in “so-called feminism” (a term I never aligned with anyway, but now I’m even more conscious of why that is), and
c) me actively seeking out resources that would help me action what I had previously only given lip service to.
This master class with Layla Saad, hosted by Catrice M. Jackson is my next step on the journey.
And this was my call to action:
A WAKE UP CALL FOR SPIRITUAL WHITE WOMEN AND OTHER WHITE WOMEN LEADERS, COACHES AND BUSINESS OWNERS
“How white women in the spirituality, wellness & personal growth industry perpetuate racism, and what they can do to change that in their own businesses.”
Until you actively take on anti-racism work – you don’t know what you don’t know. And what you don’t know hurts ALL of us.
