    Coming Home to our Wild, Instinctual, Embodied Wisdom (Michaela Boehm)

    Many of us in the Red School community have an intuitive longing to connect to the wild Feminine within us. As our guest today Michaela Boehm says in her book, The Wild Woman’s Way, we’re longing to connect to “the ancient part of us that knows the rising of the moon, and the movement of the tides. The instinctual, deeply connected aspects in each of us that has survived and thrived in the wilderness for many 1000s of years”. Today we’re exploring how to rewild ourselves, how to come back to ...

    145. Boundaries, Inner Mothering and the Menstrual Cycle (Bethany Webster)

    The deeper we go with our menstrual cycle awareness practice, the more it can resource us as we heal our deepest wounds. Cycle by cycle, we step into deeper intimacy with our needs, which in turn enables us to take clumsy steps towards clarifying healthy boundaries. Today we’re speaking about a core wound which effects all of us, with the woman who first comprehensively defined the term a decade ago, Bethany Webster and the Mother Wound. As Bethany says, the Mother Wound is the place inside u...

Dreams to reality...creative cycles

these women ... this sharing ..thank you for such gold. In awe of your honesty, making visible your inner truths..
listening to your details of dreaming beginnings allowed me the incredible luxury of recognising tiny, tiny dust specks of my own. Such resonance and truth.
And wow Sjanie your words feed parts of my deep soul to not rush... ♥️

Amazing - inspiring - powerful

This weeks episode makes me hopeful that one day there will be a blockbuster movie about how you guys got this going, it would really help to make this mainstream ! And be so refreshing as a film, as i feel the film industry needs a big change too, i am so desperate to watch more films with meaningful content!

I look forward to listening to these podcasts every week. I do treat them like a ‘me time moment’ usually in the bath or driving.

I always feel at peace with myself when they finish. And feel slightly impatient about having to wait another week.

Thank you and look forward to one day having more than one a week! Such a nourishing listen always. At last something stimulating and powerful and positive to listen to.

You guys have such lovely voices to listen to and a calming pace- not rushed. I aspire to be articulate like you about how i feel and experience my cycle.

Thank you 🙏🙏🙏🌞🌞🌞🌞

All women would benefit from listening

Thank you for this important and deeply moving podcast. Women at all life stages would benefit from the wisdom of these podcasts. Helping us to connect with our inner cyclical wisdom and trust our bodies and inner knowing more fully. To reimagine monthly bleeds and the menopause process from a medical conduction to a process full of insight and connection to self and the earth. Precious and nourishing. Thank you
