Thais Sky is a truth speaker, healer, women's coach, and feminist on a heart-led mission to have important conversations at the intersection of feminism + spirituality, and today she’s re-joining Lindsey + Krista to once again tackle some really big questions: How can we begin to dismantle our unconscious biases?  How can we all be better allies to one another? And how can we provide a safe space for more conversations like these?

 

 

We are constantly striving to evolve ourselves and this show by bringing more diverse voices into the conversation –as always, we are learning right along with you all.  So thank you for being to open and vulnerable
