In Episode 10 of The Soul’s Work Podcast, Janice dives into the topic of spiritual bypassing, and explains why the prevalent “feel good, vibe high” and law of attraction teachings in the spiritual/self-development spaces are not enough in: 1) addressing the complex challenges and social barriers that people face in trying to create the life that they want; and 2) promoting a comprehensive “spiritual toolbox” to help equip people in their spiritual development journeys.
