If you do yoga or have it coming into your field as something to explore, then my guest on The Priestess Podcast today, Susanna Barkataki, is going to be Goddess sent to you. I have this small theory, (which is clearly untested in any scientific way but still pressing on my heart), that most of us do not really know what yoga actually is. What we think it is, is a version sold to us through a white and capitalist lens that has stripped yoga of it’s full spiritual and social meaning to just be about what we do on a mat. Susanna is here to share with us today how yoga is so much more than likely what we think we know and how to decolonise our practice and view of it. She is enlightening, warm and also challenging in true yoga practitioner form.
Today is a first for the Priestess Podcast where we have not one but TWO very special guests for you - Shakisha Reynolds and Laureen Mally of The Woo Collective. These incredible mystics have been helping people activate their spiritual DNA and bring their soul gifts into the world for a number of years now after meeting on the interwebs - Facebook to be exact! They have an ignited bond of sisterhood that runs deeply both through their personal lives as well as the work they bring to the world in partnership. THIS is the sort of sister relationship that I know so many of us crave and want to be a part of and I can’t wait for you to listen in and hear their goodness in this episode. It’s like a girl chat of the highest spiritual order!
What is your life purpose? Big question right? Right! It often seems to me that when this topic is being discussed there are suggestions that you need to do a lot of seeking and searching to FIND your life purpose, however my guest on The Priestess Podcast today - Neha Awasthi disagrees. How and why she disagrees is going to be something I won’t reveal to you now - but encourage you to simply listen in to Neha’s beautiful, soulful and I believe deeply spiritual way of looking at our life and any given moment we are blessed with. This is the sort of episode that might just see you take a big exhale OUT both during and at the end - and change the way you view life and your purpose differently and forever more.
You are worthy. You are loved. You are Diosa. These are the words of my special guest on The Priestess Podcast today - psychotherapist Christine Gutierrez. Christine has been working with and through La Diosa - The Goddess - since she was a child and you’re about to learn how passionately she connects with Her in everything she does in her work today. Christine is particularly passionate about how the Goddess can help us transcend emotional wounds, traumas and hurt IF we are open to all that She needs to show us. And the operative word there is OPEN, because the face of the Goddess does not always come to us in a way that is pretty or neat. Sometimes She needs to show us our darkness and shadow to truly create the conditions for a deeper connection to our soul and highest self.
