YOG23: Addiction, Pain and Recovery Solutions.

Greetings Fam,

Yesterday, was the anniversary of my brothers death.

After many years of using drugs and alcohol, his body gave up on 6 November 2012.

He was 46 years old.

In today’s podcast, I share how the impact of his death keeps me committed to SLAYING in recovery and serving my community.

How do you define addiction? Do you think it’s all about drink and drugs?

In this episode, I also teach how black pain under the system of racism, manifests as different types of addictive and compulsive behavior.

Black self respect means being truthful about your pain.

Black self love is about asking for help.

If you’re struggling with addiction and want to learn more about 12 step recovery,

you can listen to the ‘Recovery for Beginners’ episode here. 

Be open. Be willing. Be the change.

Till next time

With Blackalicious love

June

YOG21: Are You Addicted To Misery?

Greetings Family,

Has pain become your only friend? Is there a deeper pay off for holding onto your pain and drama? How does this enable own oppression as a community?

In  today’s episode, I explore how pain and childhood chaos can create a ‘comfortable,’ addictive cycle of more pain and chaos. I also share about my own compulsive fear of being happy during my entrepreneurial journey.

Enjoy

With blackalicious love,

TBS15: Recovery Step 3 – Are White People Your Higher Power?

 

Greetings family,

In this show, I explore how the image of white Jesus and the religion of white supremacy (Christianity) maintains a spiritually abusive power dynamic where white people have become our Higher Power.

In 12 step recovery, step 3 is when we, ‘Made the decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understand it.’ As religion is one of the key areas of oppressive people activity under the system of white supremacy, I also share my experience, hope and tools for dealing with this abusive religious enmeshment. Details for this show include:

  • The concept of God.
  • The role of white supremacy in religion.
  • Slavery, Christianity and the black church.
  • White Jesus and spiritual abuse.
  • Recovery Step 3.
  • When white people were my Higher Power.
  • The dismantling and reconstruction process.
  • Setting spiritual boundaries.
