Charlotte Pointeaux on Cyclical Living (E231)
One of the questions I often get asked is how can I uncondition, unlearn and unravel myself from the patriarchy. Well…that’s a big question for sure and there is of course no one size fits all answer. One way I am certain however that we can make inroads with such a desire is to embrace with much deeper reverence the fact we are cyclical beings and are surrounded by cycles in our lives all the time. The sun. The moon. The seasons. Life and death itself. I could go on and on. How is embracing our cyclical nature the antithesis of the patriarchy and also capitalism, disembodiment and more? Well our incredible guest today, international award winning menstrual educator and coach Charlotte Pointeaux, is here to share with us that very thing. And so much more. This is a deeply powerful and beautiful interview that has so much wisdom in that you can use to impact your daily life immediately. Here’s to that!
Fionnuala Doherty on Soul Aligned Friendships (E230)
The world of women’s friendships are often romanticised. Hollywood dreams of best friends forever and being there for each other through thick and thin are presented as the norm of what we all should have and be experiencing - but the reality can be far from that ideal. For many if not most of us, we carry a sister wound of some kind when it comes to our friendships and connections to other women, and that wound can vary in size and impact in our lives in so many ways. My beautiful guest on The Priestess Podcast today is Fionnuala Doherty, a life coach and yoga teacher, who has an emerging passion for helping women create soul aligned friendships and address their own inner worlds and woundings when it comes to their friendships and connection to their own version of sisterhood. Fionnuala herself has had deeply challenging experiences in this area in her own life and is now on a heart centred mission to support all of us who are craving the belonging that comes with true and reciprocal friendships in our lives.
Bec Cuzzillo on Scaling Your Spiritual Business (E229)
We are talking all things business, and in particular spiritual business, on The Priestess Podcast today with my wonderful guest Bec Cuzzillo. Bec and I explore what a spiritual business actually is, the influence of Goddess Spirituality in her life and business, and what scaling your business actually means. We also talk about the vital importance as a business owner of knowing your foundational starting point as key to any dreams you have to scaling and growing what you do - AND not getting tangled in any belief that you can ever charge what you are worth - because you are priceless and beyond worth - but rather that charging for your products and services is a key undertaking in business growth.
Tara Winters on Money Wisdom (E228)
Money is one of those topics that can bring up a lot of ‘stuff’ for us. And if you are a regular listener of The Priestess Podcast then you know we are not afraid to go into the ‘stuff’ of life and so we’re going to do that very thing today with my guest Tara Winters. Tara is a former corporate accountant turned life, spirituality and money coach and we are here to talk about money wisdom. There is a mention in here of cheap underwear and expensive cheese and so you know given that we have some fun too! In particular I loved Tara’s viewpoint on bridging the gap between the viewpoints that money is everything in life and the most important thing we can try to attain - and the rejection of it - especially at times by some people who deem it to not be ‘spiritual’ enough to desire. And you better believe within this that both Tara and I agree that money in the hands of more conscious people around the world - which I am sure is you beautiful listener - is a VERY good thing.
Andrea Westbrook on Size & Spirituality (E227)
What does someone's size have to do with spirituality? Well to be perfectly honest with you it shouldn’t have anything to do with it - but the world we live in that is steeped in sizest and fatphobic rhetoric and messaging - makes it so. My truly wonderful guest on The Priestess Podcast today is Andrea Westbrook, a life coach for fat, curvy and plus sized women. Andrea shares with us about the necessary reclaiming of the word fat, how exclusionary spiritual spaces can be of people who are fat and most importantly of all - what we can all do about such things to make a spiritual path of life exploration open to us all. I know you will find Andrea inspirational and heart opening in her messaging about this topic which is not just relevant in spiritual spaces and our work - but indeed in our lives in general.
Tracy Neely on Wounds to Wisdom (E226)
You have likely heard me say more than once on The Priestess Podcast that our shadow, fears and ego self have so much to teach us as human beings and are not things to push away or deny. They only grow in ways that can make them even harder to face when we do that! And I speak from experience - which maybe you can relate to as well. Tracy Neely is here with us on the show today to speak to how our wounds - and in particular our emotional wounds - can be a pathway of transformation for us into wisdom we hold deeply within and is calling to be loved and integrated into our everyday life. Tracy has a beautifully spiritual and very grounded way of helping us look at the darker parts of ourselves and how we can honour them in such a way that they become teachers, guides and wayshowers in our lives. This is a special episode that shows us so deeply that all of our life experiences can have lessons within them that are waiting for us to become wiser through.
Femininity & Laughter
I love this podcast so much. Julie is incredibly wise AND makes me laugh, a lot. Every podcast teaches me & fills my love tank!
Wow, so informational and inspiring!!
When I first started inner work this past year I really had no knowledge of any part of this world. It’s been incredibly interesting, and uplifting! I can’t stop listening so I’ve been binging all the episodes!
I got it
Let me start with I LOVE this podcast! I am on a journey of rediscovering my inner priestess and femininity.
I definitely love the message of learning to accept help. It’s something I’ve been struggling with in my journey. I have an issue though. The perceived explanation of why we say “I got it”. I have worked in predominantly masculine careers, Airborne Medic, comercial fishing, sheet rock on and on. The reason I say no thank you is because it keeps me safe. While I appreciate help, I have found it is often used to exploit me in a time of need or as an example of how incapable I am at doing my job compared to my male counterparts. I got it syndrome has developed over the years as a form of protection. If a female mechanic walked up to my car I would be much more comfortable accepting help. I am from Alaska and we have to be very self sufficient because often there is no one else around. Moving to the continental United States, well things are very different. I find the help I receive here is usually an attempt to get my number or get me alone. I just think it’s important that women know it’s okay, that “I got it” Is a form of defense and at times accepting help can put you in danger. Thank you for your podcast! ❤️
