    Ep 28. Feel Connected to the Moon? Why Sisterhood is Vital feat The Revolutionary Woman

    The technological world encourages a disconnection from our natural rhythms.

They are devoted to creating a safe space where women of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life can heal, learn to love themselves, find the courage to use their voices, and let down the walls that have been built up over the years.

    Em & Linda's teachings blend ancient wisdom with the modern way of living. In this episode, they share how you can reconnect with your sacred cycle, the benefits of moon-gazing, and share how womb wisdom can help you live, love, and lead your life with ease, flow, and integrity.

So Powerful

I recently listened to the special miscarriage episode of Conscious Kitchen. Elizabeth and her husband Chris both talk about and reflect on the loss of their two children through miscarriage. It was so interesting to hear it from both the male and female perspectives of dealing with their loss. Though I may never know what losing a child feels like, I got a very clear glimpse of what they're both going through. Elizabeth also talked about her feelings in detail and what she went through during her doctor's office visits alone during the pandemic as well as comforting things she did to deal with her grief. I also learned a lot in relation to what one should say or more importantly not say to a couple who might be expecting. Kudos to both of them for sharing such an important story and I look forward to listening to other Conscious Kitchen episodes. This podcast is unique in the sense that you won't hear anything like it anywhere else and there's a lot of useful info spanning over a number of episodes that are all useful to hear during these uncertain, pandemic times. I highly reccomend Conscious Kitchen!

Walking the walk and talking the talk

Listening to The Conscious Kitchen is just the right amount of all food for thought. It’s what the mind needs in the vast sea of digital noise we all find ourselves swimming in. Tuning in to hear these ladies and the guests they curate is exactly like good mental floss and the kind of self care I need after digesting a full day of scrolling. Keep on keeping on, we are all rooting for you!

Heartwarming

I recently listened to “The Revolutionary Women” podcast and found myself listening to a group of women share their stories and experiences with unlearning the competitiveness of friendship from capitalism and learning how to support each other by understanding their bodies and menstrual cycles. I enjoyed the underpinning message of how powerful unconditional love and support can be, especially from a friend. I liked how they talked about “holding space” for each other to process emotions and that sometimes, we just need somebody to sit there and allow us to feel our feelings. The conversation about the cycles of the menstrual cycle are important. I am not sure how I felt about the women generalizing one’s period to being an emotional experience but I think normalizing the various phases of a menstrual cycle can be really powerful. I definitely noticed this about myself and have come to understand that at certain parts, I just need to stop fighting my feelings and roll with it. In that, the podcast helped me feel a sense of community with other people who felt the same way about their periods. While the podcast did mention variant gender identities, I felt like this podcast was for cis women and did not do much on expanding this conversation to those who menstruate but don’t identify as women or something else. This could boil down to the guests on the show not naturally having that demographic in their social circles. I hope they begin to welcome other voices besides their own and expand what it means to be a woman. In conclusion, I really enjoyed the underlying message of the podcast and learned some new things along the way. I think the framing of the podcast threw me off a little bit because it was too bioessentialist (sex is natural/something you are born with). Overall, enjoyed it and felt that the hosts had really good intentions for just creating a community of women to support each other.
