10. Inspired Action, "Kotodama", and Pronunciations as an Effect of Colonization

As always, Rose and Manasi cover a lot of ground through their open, honest, candid conversation. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • What the wisdom of Muladhara Chakra teaches us about when and how to take action, and which actions fuel our energy
  • Why Manasi and many of her clients don't set goals, and what they do instead
  • Debunking the myth, "No pain, no gain"
  • Japanese concept of "Kotodama" 
  • Why pronunciations of words from different cultures, different languages matter + a simple, practical, actionable way you can contribute to dismantling cultural disrespect and appropriation that our society has normalized as an effect of colonization
