56 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Spilling the Tea with the Pastors (Gina Pollard & John Pavlovitz)
Having a conversation with GP and JP was beyond phenomenal. Gina Pollard is sweet and spicy and the spiritual leader you want in your corner when life gets lifey and John Pavlovitz, the Pastor of the Resistance, inspires action through his writing and pushes the reader to extend themselves to contribute to healing and working on behalf of humanity.
Both are my spiritual mentors and it was a joy and gift to listen and learn in their presence.
