In episode 74 of Fresh Tracks I speak with spiritual leader and consciousness powerhouse Lola Wright. Our discussion runs the gamut from the important role being authentic plays in contributing to society as a whole and why self-expression can be such an important value to society. Lola shares her personal journey cutting Fresh Tracks from becoming a mom at 18, to a career in the finance industry to becoming the Spiritual Director of Bodhi Chicago.
How do you know it’s time to for you to cut your Fresh Tracks? Lola answers this question and provides a 7-day process for checking “your aliveness” in your day-to-day life. We also discuss why cutting Fresh Tracks is important – because people who enjoy the life they are living are contributing more to the planet! Finally, we breach the topic of race in America and why it’s such an important topic to explore. Lola shares that you cannot shift what you cannot accept – and this applies to race as much as anything else.
