We hear a lot about the feminist movements in the media.
We encourage women to stand up and make their voices heard. We tell them they can have it all – and many of us (myself included) want it all.
I know sometimes this can leave women feeling more isolated.
Last month, I spoke on a motherhood panel at Microsoft, and one of the moms expressed that she didn’t feel as connected to the feminist movement after she had her kids.
She felt that society was telling her she needed to be everything when she wanted space, time and support to lean into motherhood.
With the #hustlehard culture, there’s a lot of pressure on women to be CEOs, mothers, wives, and everything to everyone.
What if this isn’t your path? And what if it is your path to build a massive empire and have a lot of children? Or, what if it’s something else altogether?
It’s hard to identify your path and then find the strength to follow it when we’re so disconnected from our own inner voices.
The #MeToo movement brought to light that no woman is safe. We see that almost every woman has experienced some form of sexual assault resulting in deep trauma. We know things need to change and that women need to heal.
So what does it look like for a woman to be fully healed from the trauma caused by the patriarchy? And to take it one step further, what does it look like to be a fully realized woman?
We can’t talk about healing women and we can’t encourage women to “do it all” without talking about our sexuality – how we’ve been raised to view sex and our relationship with it.
This week, I interviewed Dr. Linda Savage author of Reclaiming Goddess Sexuality: The Power of the Feminine Way.
This book has changed my life, and if we’re friends you’ve probably already heard me reference it 3-4x. It’s THAT good and THAT important.
In this interview, we cover:
- The three phases of the female experience: the maiden, the mother and the crone. How is each represented in society today? And what does it look like to realize our potential through each phase?
- The role of women in ancient times and what a more balanced society looks like.
- How women can work on healing their sexual trauma.
- How women can better leverage their intuition to find growth and fulfillment.
This is not a conversation to be missed. Watch here, and after you’re done, we’d love to hear from you. What questions do you have regarding female energy and sexuality? What resonates most with you in this conversation? And what else can we cover in the future to take this conversation even deeper?
