Practice: Radical Gratitude Spell (by adrienne maree brown, read by Fhatima Paulino)

A 5-minute practice to show gratitude for yourself and others on the path to liberation.

The only way that feels appropriate to end this first, long season of Healing Justice Podcast, is with GRATITUDE.

Thank you to adrienne maree brown for granting us permission to read this powerful spell, and thank you to Fhatima Paulino (of epsiode 15) for reading it with such kindness and sending us out with a blessing.
