In this episode, I speak with artist, writer and professional troublemaker, Alexis P. Morgan.
Alexis P. Morgan is the Abbess of the Church of St. Felicia, where her work as a writer, artist, and ritualist serve her community and the pursuit of Truth, Justice, and Liberation. Alexis is one of my favourite writers. Her ability to write with both fire and love inspires me - both as a writer and as a black woman. Alexis describes herself as the, 'pole-dancing, troublemaking, pro-heaux, anarcho-communist, Black AF sorceress you've been warned about'. I would say that's spot on. Alexis' work spans many different interlocking disciplines including writing, art, anti-capitalism, business, spirituality and anti-oppression work. It was a blessing to have this conversation with this dear sister.
in this episode, Alexis & i explore:
Accessibility vs sustainability in personal and professional practice
How to be at peace in a capitalist society
How to stay at peace and at rest as a deeply spiritual and sensitive person
Alexis’s essay A Open Letter to Gary Vaynerchuck
The idea that capitalism will always make you want more
The myth and politics of the “self-made person”
Not owing anyone a discussion when you write and share your words or your stories
Having a plan for self care and protection on the other side of releasing your work and words

The over prevalence of white supremacy and white feminism of internet marketing
