We loved speaking with Angie Vroom, writer, artist, meditation teacher, producer of the feminist podcast Don’t Waste Your Pretty and mother to a 7 year old daughter.
Angie, who is such a gifted storyteller, shares with us her spiritual autobiographical journey from evangelical Christianity and Jesus camp as a teen, to her obsession with the Holocaust, to the Himalayas, becoming a teacher of Vedic Meditation, and the birth of her daughter.
In this episode, we had so many incredible conversations such as:
-her struggle with depression and choosing meditation over medication
-an awakening experience to universe size protons and the role of psychedelics that can create a “short cut”
-how we are constantly forgetting that we are already enlightened
-the experience of transcendent grief as well as transcendent rage which connects us to each other and our own experiences
-the rise of a feminine spiritual practice and how her activism and spiritual practice are not separate
-deconstructing the dominant spiritual narrative where a high energy positive vibe is valued as opposed to living in the full spectrum of reality and emotional life
-offering an authentic, imperfect version of her self as a teacher rather than making promises of enlightenment
