019 Elevate Your Perspective with Jennifer Whitney

The term media is thrown around a LOT these days but what does it really mean? Now more than ever, journalists and consumers of news have a responsibility to examine how and what we share shapes the collective consciousness. Sounds a bit heavy, yes?! Lucky for us, our guest in this episode breaks it down in a way that makes it easy to stay informed, act from a place of empowerment rather than fear and change the world with simple daily actions. Jenn Whitney is an award winning photo journalist, kundalini yogi and healer who shares her own path of self healing and how it's led her to her to become a role model for anyone looking to look beyond their bubble, face their own bullshit and contribute in a proactive, meaningful way to make a better society for everyone.
