#99 Mindful Diversity (with Angella Okawa)

The Wonder Dome

Jun 14 2022 • 1 hr 13 mins

Angella Okawa is a certified Integral coach and a licensed marriage and family therapist and the founder of Mindful Diversity. She brings together a wide range of modalities to help people navigate questions of identity, belonging, community, diversity, and equity. These questions permeate our social fabric, pushing us to explore who we are and who we might become.

This is a deeply experiential episode. We begin by exploring work that I did with Angella in a private coaching session, where she took me through a process to connect to my own inner imagination to navigate a question of my future and purpose. From there, our conversation delves into group, social, and organizational contexts where there's conflict or disagreement about what's right or true. At the end of the conversation, Angella leads a guided visualization to weave together the elements we explored.

Throughout it all, she models what becomes possible if we’re willing to listen deeply to each other in those moments where we feel most afraid, angry, upset, or defensive. You will leave this conversation with a deeper sense of how to navigate spaces that are riven by conflict and uncertainty, and how to emerge from those conflicts with more possibility, creativity, and true human connection
