Ep #53: Less is Liberation


May 26, 2021

The Power Paradigm with Radiah Rhodes & Dr. Roni Ellington | Less is Liberation

When you hear the word minimalism, what comes to mind? You probably think about decluttering and organization. While those are both elements of this lifestyle, it’s about so much more. Minimalism is an opportunity to live a life full of love, joy, and peace without excessive consumption.

This June, we’re partnering with Christine Platt, the Afrominimalist, on a brand new Inner Game Plan. Christine’s new book is currently available to pre-order, and in it, she explores the ways minimalism has been whitewashed and made to feel very restrictive, and how to use it for liberation instead.

In this episode, we’re discussing what intrigues us about minimalism and why we love Christine’s approach to using minimalism to create the experience of freedom. We’re diving into how we’ve started adding minimalism into our lives, why it’s about more than just decluttering, and how having less paves the way for liberation. 


What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • How mainstream minimalism is restrictive.
  • Christine’s 3 criteria for keeping items and what this brings up for us.
  • How to reframe the guilt you feel for spending excessively.
  • The importance of authenticity in minimalism.
  • What we’re afraid of when we think about owning less.
  • How owning less can lead to liberation.
