Liberate Yourself for More Effective Activism with James Aspey

Oct 2, 2019

Watch Episode 42 with James Aspey here:

Once you’ve experienced true fear and suffering, it’s hard to ignore the agony and trauma of others. 

James Aspey was diagnosed with cancer at only 17 and was told he’d be dead in six weeks if he didn’t start chemotherapy immediately. 

After three years of treatment, he’d gained 50 pounds and developed a severe binge eating disorder. 

As he worked to find peace and healing through the principles of Vipassana meditation, he was exposed to the realities of the meat and dairy industries. 

James made vows to resist the impulses of his bulimia, to never consume animal products again, and to stay silent for 365 days to raise awareness and promote peace over violence. 

He joins Dotsie and Alexandra in this episode to share how making the switch has been spiritually liberating and has allowed him to live truly aligned with his values. 

You’ll hear how he broke out of his food addiction, his tips for transitioning to veganism, and why it’s so important to be part of animal activism outside of your personal plate.
