Episode 12: The Intersection Of Diet Culture, Purity Culture + Cancel Culture with Lindsey Lockett
"These fundamentalist ideologies don't allow us to be our own moral authority because we are supposed to see things outside of ourselves as the standard for how we're supposed to behave or believe or eat. When we're constantly looking outside of ourselves to know what is okay and what is not okay then we don't establish that internal compass."
- Lindsey Lockett, Return to Wholeness Podcast
Lindsey locket is the host of the holistic trauma healing podcast. After leaving behind the dogma of fundamentalist religion and toxic wellness culture, Lindsey experienced her own dark night of the soul. During the healing journey that followed, she realized that trauma affects us as whole people and therefore we need to heal as whole people. Although Lindsey has benefited tremendously from therapy and psychiatry. These modalities never totally resonated with her because she found that they forced her to fragment herself rather than heal holistically. She set out to create an affordable and accessible approach that integrates the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual and ancestral parts of our being. In addition to her podcast, Lindsey works one on one with clients as a trauma educator, and coach. And she has also created the trauma healer circle, an online community of empowered women who cheer each other on as they become the heroes of their own story. She lives in the north woods of Minnesota with her husband and two teenagers and enjoys growing her own food, making plant medicine and cold plunging and Lake Superior.
In this week's episode, I'm chatting with Lindsey Lockett. We discuss the intersection of diet culture, purity culture and cancel culture and how subscribing to rigid ideologies separates us from our own inner authority.
