Oh, the humanity!

I knew Doreen Virtue had become Christian, but didn’t realize she was also expressing xenophobic and religiously intolerant views.
Telling people to stay away from practices like yoga or sweat lodges is saying that the ancient healing practices of Indigenous peoples is “wrong”, and I won’t stand for it.
This is so hurtful.
EDITED TO ADD:
Read Jani Franck’s comment below. We may be inclined to question her stability or hypothesize about what happened that sparked her dramatic shift, but this is what can result from the toxic cocktail of appropriation, and the misuse and separation of an individual tool/practice from its roots. For example, yoga isn’t “new age” — it may be widely appropriated, but true yoga is an ancient and comprehensive wisdom stream. It’s a whole way of living that is connected with a people.
For anyone who loves/loves her “Goddess Guidance Cards”, check out Meggan Jane Watterson’s “Divine Feminine Oracle”. It teaches the stories of women / deities from around the world – many of whom you may have never heard of. It’s absolutely beautiful and full of integrity!
“The toxic cocktail of appropriation”? Have you been paying any attention to your fellow goddesses, Noodles?
For some larfs, click on Doreen Virtue’s guide to “innocent” new age texts and practices that aren’t so innocent. Did you know reading a Harry Potter book is detestable to God? I’m so upset that I may need to consult my Green Goddess Guidance Cards!
Still no word on Noodle’s Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse – did anyone show up? – or plans to extend the three-month commitment container with Noah No Vowels. It’s worrisome!
