Welcome to Tarot Bytes – the tarot podcast for people who want to learn tarot…but don’t have all day. Short, bite-sized tarot lessons.
Episode 221: Why Representation Matters in Wellness Practices with Krystal Banner
Crystals, tarot, astrology, yoga…these wellness practices seem to be getting hotter by the minute. But for too long, the metaphysical industry has been centered around white, cis-gendered, able-bodied, heteronormative folks. Thankfully, that is changing. People want inclusivity – and when it happens, communities thrive. While there is more diversity than ever before, we have a very long way to go. Artist Krystal Banner joins me to discuss why representation matters in wellness practices – and what we can do to make sure everyone gets a seat at the table. We also discuss her new Absolute Affirmations deck, one of my fave new spiritual tools.
Krystal Banner is an experienced intuitive, artist, and creator who is passionate about making self-discovery approachable, accessible, and relatable. After spending over ten years as an engineer and consultant, she decided to follow her passion for art and wellness. She saw an opportunity to make spirituality more inclusive, inviting a broader audience to start their own path of self-discovery. In 2017, Krystal founded Kaleidadope-a creative hub that specializes in stationery, self-published decks, art, and design inspired by color and culture-which has been recognized in multiple publications. She is the author of a range of card decks, including her latest, Absolute Affirmations, and also works as a professional intuitive reader.
