The countercultural healer’s guide for building a sustainable and values-driven practice: work toward your purpose, grow your client base, and thrive with integrity within an unjust capitalist system. The time for healing–and the time to be a healer–is now. Therapist Laura Mae Northrup navigates the complexities of being a healer today–and shows how you can stay true to your calling in a world built from systems that were designed to extract, oppress, and exploit.Addressing fundamental tensions that arise for practicing healers working in a late-stage capitalist culture, Northrup shares how to: • Maintain your ethical framework even while prioritizing financial growth • Market and brand your practice authentically, without feeling like a shill • Examine your “shadow why,” by looking honestly at the baggage, unconscious biases, and unexamined motivations you unintentionally bring to work • Resist burnout and honor your limits within a culture that valorizes overwork • Connect to your emotional needs and spiritual goals–and honor their place in your healing practice Structured in accessible, to-the-point chapters with practical writing and reflection prompts, Northrup offers an authentic, spiritually grounded approach to healership, going much deeper than the promise of a million-dollar practice or a minimum-effort game plan.Written for healers of all modalities–including radical therapists, functional practitioners, reiki workers, bodyworkers, and healers who have been sidelined, underfunded, underresearched, or delegitimized within a Western capitalist framework–this book offers a nuanced, political, and social-justice informed guide to building the practice you want–and thriving as the healer you were born to be.
