Ep. 39: Spirituality and Christianity can Coexist

August 11, 2021
On Episode 39, Dr. Stephanie talks to Monica Wisdom about how she embraces the "woo woo" as a professed Christian. As we highlight the importance of mental health, we are reminded that faith and spirituality are key when it comes to supporting our mental health. But, sometimes Christians are hesitant to embrace things that seem too spiritual. Let's talk about that. Let's talk about how we can be open to all things that support our well being and expansion without guilt. We will even get into a discussion of the divine feminine. So, on this episode are talking all about how "Christians Can Embrace the Woo Woo too! - Thoughts on Spirituality.”
 
Monica’s adventurous spirit has taken her in many directions, including cosmetology, writing, and the music industry. After graduating cosmetology school with honors, she ascended to and studied with innovators such as Vivienne Mackinder, Geri Cosenza, Irvine Rusk, and many more! Monica has worked with celebrities and companies including The Isley Brothers, Loretta Divine, Atlantic Records, DreamWorks Records, and the list goes on. She's also been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX networks. In the midst of it all, Monica was called to go on a spiritual sojourn and she knew it was time to excavate and heal her traumatic childhood and generational wounds. You will learn SO much from her and we will dig deep into the conversation on spirituality.

Other highlights of Monica’s transcendent career, includes her time as Director of Operations for ‘In Magazine’ and ‘Today in Church Magazine’. She and magazine publisher David Holmon worked to create the monthly publications that inspired its readers and reached critical acclaim. In that role, Monica interviewed celebrities about their spiritual life and personal journeys. She interviewed such notables as Kirk Whalum, Princess Zulu, Eric Roberson, Vonnetta Flowers, Evander Holyfield and Isaac Bruce to name a few. Her features stood strong next to other contributors that included Joyce Meyers, TD Jakes, and Joel Olsten. Monica’s most rewarding work was with the global music label Yoruba Records, working alongside Osunlade building a global brand and movement.

In the midst of it all, Monica was called to go on a spiritual sojourn and she knew it was time to excavate and heal her traumatic childhood and generational wounds. Sharing her shadows was the next step to enable her to be all that she was born to be. Through the coaching program of Phoenix 2000, Monica learned that her pain could be used to heal others which led her into a deep spiritual examination and study of the Divine Feminine with her teachers Dr. Caroline ‘Isis’ Fuqua and Bettie Spruill. She is also a student of Transcendental Meditation and is a student of Yogini Nithyananda.

Monica’s footprint now includes, the Black Women Amplified - the podcast and the forth coming Black Women Amplified Planner/Workbook. Monica continues to create and curate a destination designed to amplify, elevate and empower women around the globe.
