034: Trish Ahjel Roberts On How To Be ‘Mind Blowingly Happy’ Even When Things Are Not Going Your Way

In this episode of Conversations with Vegan Women Leaders, we interview Trish Ahjel Roberts is an acclaimed author, self-actualization coach and professional speaker.

Despite a history of childhood sexual assault, institutional racism, domestic violence, divorce and single parenting, Trish is a happiness expert.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, she’s a certified life coach, yoga and meditation instructor and reiki practitioner.

Trish is the founder of Mind-Blowing Happiness and Black Vegan Life, and the author of three self-help books including the recently released 12 Steps to Mind-Blowing Happiness.

In this interview Trish talks about:

• The impact that being sexually assaulted as a child had on her

• Her experiences of institutional racism and domestic violence

• How it’s possible to be ‘mind-blowingly happy’ in the face of atrocities towards people, animals and planet

• The misconception that happiness is based on your situation and why it’s important to find joy even when things aren’t going your way.

• How to stop anger from taking control of our lives

• What self-actualization is and why it’s important

• How to bring passion to your work even if it’s not your dream job or career

• And more
