1. Lifting the veil on grief and feminine leadership
For many women, the idea of pleasure also awakens a sense of grief. I know it once did for me. There can be an inevitable coupling between a desire to feel free to access and receive pleasure AND a sense of shame, fear, inaccessibility or disempowerment when it comes to the very same desire.
If you can relate to the idea of pleasure being laced with a kind of poison, you are valid in feeling this way. Your system might be interpreting your pleasure history through the lens of grief.
In Episode 1 of the SensuAlchemy School podcast, Kate provides the lay of the land when it comes to understanding grief differently through a feminist and archetypal feminine lens.
She delves into:
+ Embodied Grief work as a fundamental leadership responsibility - if patriarchal leadership won’t acknowledge this, then we MUST
+ How our culture has taught us to fear grief - much like we’re taught to fear anything that can set us free
+ The truth that grief can’t be healed - so what can we do with it?
+ How our sorrow can be experienced as the seed of our personal power OR a factor that unconsciously dominates our lives
