Episode 27: Maryam Ajayi on Being a Woman of Color in The Spiritual and Wellness Space Awaken and Align

    • Places & Travel

When most people think of healers in wellness, they probably imagine a brunette white women, with a minimalist aesthetic and well-curated brand identity — an industry standard for success. As a dynamic healer of color, who practices Reiki and Breathwork, but also works in Tech and admits to drinking champagne and indulging in tacos, Maryam doesn't fit that image. Despite the discrepancy between her identity and that of the majority of healers in this space, she still knew that she belonged in the healing world and became determined to find her own place in it. In this episode, Maryam and I chat about spiritual awakenings, reiki, breathwork, unblocking white fragility, white privilege, conscious capitalism, and that wellness should be accessible to all.
