Decolonizing The Mind And Reclaiming Wellness With Jovanka Ciares

Because of unbalanced society standards, wellness has been dominated and almost became exclusive to white people. This must never be the case, and reclaiming wellness to become accessible to all has been the center of Jovanka Ciares’ crusade. This integrative herbalist and executive health coach joins Whitney Lauritsen to share about her education initiative that gives the minority access to proper wellness knowledge. Jovanka explains the work needed in raising awareness on plant-based living in BIPOC communities and solving various issues caused by cultural appropriation in her line of work. She also discusses decolonizing the mind from the idea of achieving perfection and simply doing the best for your body.
