What does the word “wellness” even mean anymore? In this one, Ev'Yan speaks to poet, artist, and author, Fariha Roisin, about self-care, collective healing, wellness culture, and this question, "Who is wellness for?"—also the title of Fariha's soon-to-be-released book. Fariha shines light on the “wellness industrial complex” and how consumerism and capitalism have disconnected us from what it truly means for us to be well. They also speak about messy, non-linear processes of healing, the ways can interrogate our own participation in wellness culture, and the things that keep Fariha feeling well in her own body.

Ev’Yan also makes an announcement about the show.
