Regina Louise: I Dream in Equality

You are going to love this conversation with Regina Louise, author of Permission Granted: Kick-Ass Strategies to Bootstrap Your Way to Unconditional Self Love.

Regina Louise is a remarkable human being who engages in this conversation with grace, intelligence, empathy and generosity.

Before Regina wrote her latest book Permission Granted, she authored two bestselling memoirs: Somebody’s Someone and Someone Has Led This Child to Believe in which she shares her journey that included being in thirty foster homes as a child. Her memoirs became the award-winning Lifetime movie I Am Somebody’s Child: The Regina Louise Story.

Regina joins me to explore topics of the day, including racism, privilege, being a social agent, COVID19, and how writing her 2 memoirs prepared her to write to Permission Granted, her first non-fiction self help book.

Conversation Highlights:

  • How Regina learned the value of her own permission when her fighting spirit was seen as troublesome.
  • How women and historically underrepresented folks must give ourselves permission to be bigger than a suppressive society wants us to be.
  • The truth of racism in a constructed, hegemonic society.
  • Moving into the world from the place “where spirit meets bone.”
  • Nexting: always imagining the highest order of possibility.
  • Liminal space: feeling moored in the “time in between,” and at the threshold where change is afoot.
  • Regina shares her decision to be double vaccinated and wear a mask, despite her prior skepticism based on having pharmaceutical drugs forced on her as a child of the system.
