4. How to trust the wisdom of your broken heart

Season #1

Does it feel like your body is an inconvenience or an ally? A broken vessel that lets you down, or a trusted companion?


Any answers to these questions are valid. Today, you’re invited to sense where there’s some truth waiting to be accessed within the ache of your heart and the brokenness you feel, and how to begin to find it. 


In Episode 4 of the SensuAlchemy School podcast, Kate brings 3 pivotal shifts to the table, to support you to move towards trusting the ache of your heart and the knowing of your body, in a culture that wants us to numb or fix ourselves for the benefit of others.


She explores:

+ How we’re accustomed to grief being seen as a problem to “get over” instead of being encouraged and guided to access the ways our deep embodied knowing would have us be with the complexity of the loss.

+ That building the capacity to grieve in ways that can be sourcing and sustaining is a skill that needs to be learned and practice (so there’s no shame if you find this a challenge)

+ The messages that our productivity obsessed culture and insidious self help/self-development arena put out that have us relating to our emotional pain in ways that are self-abandoning and create long term harm.

+ The essential questions: Who benefits when I repress my grief and my desires? Who benefits when I am disconnected to my body?
