In today’s Conscious Conversation, I’m joined by Alex Allen, who shares her insights and personal experiences of growing up black in America. Alex, who played a major part in inspiring this series, has done a tremendous amount of healing work, and shares her valuable perspective from the other side of healing as well as her ongoing journey. This conversation put a heavy emphasis on “conscious”, and while we definitely didn’t shy away from the uncomfortable bits, it’s also a tremendously uplifting exchange. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we did creating it.

Thanks so much for watching this installment of Conscious Conversations. If you’re a person of color or other group whose voice needs to be heard, and you’d like to participate in a public conversation like this, or if you know someone who would be perfect for this format, please contact me through my website, (or just reply to one of my emails).
Otherwise, I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below. Did you enjoy this format? Were there any aha moments? Were you left with more, unanswered questions that you may want us to answer in future conversations? Did you get uncomfortable? If you’re a person of color, do you feel your perspective was represented? What about if you’re white? Let me know in the comments.
All voices are welcome, but we do ask that you keep it respectful and constructive. In other words, what you have to say is important, just don’t be a dick about it.
Until next time, I’m Melody Fletcher, and thank you for bringing your light to the world.
