The Curated Consciously Podcast is all about helping you navigate and nurture your conscious living journey.
Every week, our BIPOC and ally community comes together to dive deeper into the inner work that needs to be done so we can cultivate vibrant, healing, and equal environments from the inside out.
As the celebration of Women’s Month winds down, how do we identify our worth not just as a woman but as an individual? It starts with an intentional pause to go inwards so we can confidently stand in our worth, communicate it clearly, and never feel taken advantage of as we proudly express our boundaries. In this episode, Jazz reflects on what it means to stand in your worth as we move through transitions, whether in our relationships, our passions, and in our career.
We have been conditioned to believe calling “things” by their name is disrespectful, exclusive, and even racist. This has brought the onset of labels to help put people and things into boxes to create a layer of comfort, such as using terms like “people of color” and “LGBTQ”. However, our identities cannot be so simply defined by labels. And that’s why we needed to check ourselves and dive into how the English language continues to colonize and oppress non-white folk and non-heterosexual folk (aka the “majority” or mainstream). We are here to challenge this paradigm of language and explore the origins of our existing labeling system, their original intentions, and the emotional, social, and psychological repercussions on us humans. In this episode, Maria Paz Amara joins us to explore the irony of “inclusive language” while sharing her personal experiences as a Chilean woman raised in Mexico.
