Before You Dive In
Hi! Welcome to The Soul's Work Podcast. I'm your host, Janice Ho. And before you dive into the episodes and blog posts, please note a few things ...
I am not a therapist or "expert" on any of the topics I speak on.
Much of what I speak about (especially regarding trauma) is based on a lot of research and education I've taken in.
BUT please remember that all of this is based on my unique personal experiences, my one "self-development" and healing journey, and I will be biased as to the kind of things I focus on, the types of information I seek and take in, and the perspectives I form and share here.
I still have SO much to learn. I am still exploring more decolonized approaches to therapy and healing. I am still working through my internalized racism and biases. I am still grappling with how my identities of privilege and oppression shape the way I operate in this world. I am still unlearning the ways in which capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy, and our culture of white supremacy have influenced my approach to healing and what I think "healing," "self-growth," and "being in better relationship" even means in the first place.
And I will never stop learning.
So please know that I will make "mistakes" here. I will say the "wrong" thing. I will change my mind about certain beliefs down the road when my mind and soul become more expanded.
I will do my best to stay humble along the way. But please afford me some grace if I fall short from time to time.
Many thanks. And now, I hope you enjoy the show. :)
