In the fast paced modern world we live in it seems sometimes as though we are always searching for something new, fresh and never before seen. Our culture is one that at times feels filled with disposables and an insatiable desire for the latest ‘thing’. And while new things can bring us so much, we surely must recognise that the old, the old ways, the ancient, the wise and wisdom filled, have deep merit too. I’ve often thought that a deep indicator of how well functioning a society is, is seen in how it treats its elderly and older citizens. The better that is, to me, the more likely enlightened that society would be. My guest on The Priestess Podcast today talking all things crone wisdom in her precious 70’s, is the extraordinary Anique Radiant Heart. Anique has been a High Priestess for decades and has inspired and worked with thousands of women around the world as they’ve been uncovering their version of this sacred leadership path. Her wisdom and humor and passion is timeless.
Holding space. I know it’s something that many of you who listen to The Priestess Podcast do whether it be as a parent, sacred space holder, coach, healer or guide. How well do you do it however? How deeply, how reverently, how present, how focused? Big questions I know but there is no one better I could think of to converse with about such things than my guest today, Heather Plett, author of ‘The Art of Holding Space’ and the Founder of the Centre for Holding Space. Heather leads us in this interview about how vital it is we learn to hold space for ourselves, what liminal space is and why it’s so important to know as a space holder, why we should be aiming to move from safe to brave spaces and the most potent step you can take right now to become a better space holder. Get ready to leave this conversation with your heart lit and ready to become better at your craft and the art of conversation with those you love.
