Candid conversations with women entrepreneurs, executives, and leaders about living, loving, and creating in the patriarchal culture—where it's never been safe for a woman to be visible or powerful.

If you feel like you're running into an invisible inner wall when you reach for more happiness and fulfillment; if you've tried just about every strategy, self-help, therapy, and still something is missing—you want to be in on these conversations.

Your host, Dr. Valerie Rein, has discovered the origin of the invisible inner wall—and it is not personal. It is rooted in the collective feminine experience of millennia of oppression imprinted in women's DNA, which she termed Patriarchy Stress Disorder® (PSD).

We hope this discovery will be a game-changer for you and the tools and strategies we share on this show will help you unlock your ultimate success and happiness and fully embody your true beauty and your true power.
