123: Spiritual Self Care & How to Make Wellness Accessible w/ Branché Foston
“There's no mistakes. Everything is aligned.” I truly believe you can only figure out your true path by exploring a bunch of different ones first. That's how Lavendaire came to be, and that's how my friend Branché Foston has found her own true path: making wellness & healing practices more accessible to millennials, especially people of color (POC).
Branché has a wealth of knowledge and experience in areas like yoga, reiki, herbalism, and meditation – and it all came from her just being curious and meeting other curious people.
We talked about what it's like to have so many different passions and interests, how pain and loss led her to spirituality and wellness, and her goals for making sure more POC are recognized and represented in healing spaces.
In this episode we explore:
- 7:42 – Advice for multipassionate people who have no idea which path to take in life
