Just when you thought you knew what labels like autistic or asexual meant, Olivia James will challenge you to look closer. And then she'll make you want to advocate for something you love!

In this podversation:

  • What is the Spoon Theory and how it applies to all of us
  • The many sides of Autism
  • The importance of getting a proper diagnosis
  • Why the world needs BOTH awareness and acceptance; "acceptance relies upon awareness"
  • "Sometimes advocacy needs to be pragmatic rather than idealistic."
  • Unpacking what asexuality is and is not
  • "Labels are as useful as you make them."
  • "Replace 'being politically correct' with 'being kind and respectful'."
  • How to get started with advocacy
  • "The best thing to do with your biases is to own them"
  • Why Olivia is NOT a social justice warrior but rather a social justice cleric
  • How studying philosophy in college made Olivia depressed and how she came to turn that around
  • The Super Serious Social Justice podcast

Meet Olivia James

Olivia is an autistic, asexual goofball who loves octopuses, cats, and rock climbing. Born and raised in the great Midwest, she went to school at a small liberal arts college and in the process discovered that too much philosophy makes her depressed.

She kicked the ass of an eating disorder, adopted some kittens, and found her true calling as a marketer in a local nonprofit (while writing, podcasting, and planning a wedding on the side).

When not working too much, Olivia can be found on bullet journal websites, listening to far too many podcasts, or playing a great deal of Dungeons and Dragons.

  • Stephanie's calling to study the Science of Mind and later at the Agape Center with Michael Bernard Beckwith

Meet Rev. Stephanie Clark:

 

Born in London, England, Stephanie visited her mother in South Africa in 1986 where she had a vision of creating a multi-racial ministry to heal the wounds of Apartheid. She completed her ministerial studies at Agape in Los Angeles. Her teacher was Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith of “The Secret” fame. In 2000 Rev. Steph founded the metaphysical ministry, Soul Home, in Johannesburg, South Africa and led it successfully until 2005 when she handed it over to her 3 top students. After 10 years away in Europe and Japan, Rev. Steph returned to South Africa in 2015 to take care of her elderly parents. Rev. Steph still speaks at Soul Home once or twice per month but she has branched out as a speaker, author and life-coach, desiring to carry the message of spiritual truth and personal upliftment beyond the walls of church. “God & Sex” was the provocative title of Rev. Steph’s talk at the New Thought conference in Johannesburg in August 2017 - “Birthing the Divine Feminine – from History to HerStory” - with keynote speakers Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith, and Lisa Nichols – also of “The Secret” fame. Rev. Steph has written 2 books: “Down Dirty and Divine: a spiritual ride through London’s underground” and her autobiography. She is currently writing her 3rd book on “God & Sex” with the working title “The Irreverent Reverend rides again.” Her 4th book on the cult of Isis in Roman Europe is also "in utero." In addition to speaking and writing and de-mythologizing sex and sin, Rev. Steph also facilitates non-denominational sacred ceremonies and spiritual journeys to sacred sites such as the Egyptian pyramids. She is a psychic medium and a reader of the Akashic Records.
