Would you like to connect more deeply to yourself & your body, starting NOW? Curious to know more about what it is I do? Check out Wholeness: A podcast for women.
In our Western Culture Menstruation is often viewed as shameful, dirty, and something to be secretive about.
This narrative sets the scene for other major life transitions that women move through including their fertility & conception journey, pregnancy, birth & motherhood.
In this episode we explore the narratives around these life transitions and how they impact our relationship with our body.
We highlight how each of these phases offers women an in invitation to deepen their relationship with their body, and provide practices that can help us to embody our innate wisdom.
To accompany each episode of this series we offer some reflective questions to contemplate. Reflecting upon your relationship with your cycle.
In this episode we explore creativity and sacred art. We dive into:
Defining Creativity and the many forms of creative expression
How we lean into creativity from an intuitive sense, for the purpose of self expression and self reflection and how this looks and feels different to creating for the purpose of a particular outcome.
How embracing our innate creative nature can lead to expansive self expression in all aspects of our life.
What sacred art is and how the process of creativity looks and feels different when we are embracing our feminine and masculine nature.
What stifles our creativity
How disconnecting from our creative nature stops us from fully expressing ourselves in our life
How the process of creativity gives us clarity
How we can use creativity and sacred art as part of our healing journey.
This is a conversation that is so close to our hearts. In this episode we dive into
What sovereignty means
How we finely tune our awareness of self so that we can feel fully sovereign across all aspects our life
How it feels when we align to our sovereignty, & how we can identify when we are stepping out of this space of personal power
How we create intentions for living from a space of body wisdom, rather than from an intellectual space
The effects of trauma, childhood development, social conditioning and our environment on our ability to tune into & trust our intuition
How we can begin to trust our intuitive inner knowing more deeply & confidently
Sovereignty in the context of femininity.
This was such a dynamic topic of conversation that we had to spread this conversation over two parts. In part 1 of Sex & Sensuality we talk about:

Sexual and sensual energy, how they are different, and why connecting to your sensuality lays the foundations for better sex

How we can feel more comfortable in our communication about sex with our partners
The cyclical nature of a women, and how our experience of sex can be different across different phases of our cycle
Sex and intimacy during different phases of our life cycle – menstruation, conception, pregnancy, motherhood & beyond.

How a woman’s experience and views of sex & sensuality change over the lifecycle.
How we can change our relationship to sex & intimacy.
The effect of trauma (birth trauma, surgical/medical trauma, sexual trauma) and how we can regain our connection to our body so that we can feel more present and safe during sex.
