Stepping Into Your Truth And Tuning Into Your Inner Guidance with Cassandra Lam, Co-Founder of Cosmos: Lesson 53

Connecting with identity and spirituality  [2:55 ] Cassandra recently made the conscious choice to begin to identify as a spiritual teacher. As someone who has struggled to own my identity as a South Asian woman in the wellness and yoga space although Yoga is a part of my ancestral lineage because I don’t feel ‘seen’ in the space much of the time, I am curious about what this experience is like for other BIWOC.  I ask Cassandra what it has been like for her to own her Vietnamese identity in fullness, along with her spirituality, and what her journey has been like owning her identity in fullness and seeing herself in this light  Cassandra shared with us how most of...
