“Tell me what is it you plan to do with your one Wild and Precious life?”
I hope that this time of year finds you having some sort of break or rest over the long weekend and school holidays.
I recently had the privilege of working with the Matric and grade 11 girls at Roedean School and we talked about the importance of rest and recovery to allow us to function better long term. Our society values the push, work hard, “keep going” mentality, which is very much a masculine energy. It’s effective, efficient and important. But it needs to be balanced by a feminine energy which is a far more receptive, restorative, regenerative energy. It’s far less about pushing and far more about “allowing”. It’s where our creativity, intuition, connection and healing reside. We see these two energies so perfectly balanced in nature and yet we are detached from nature in our daily lives, and our society has glorified the masculine and neglected the feminine, hence we find ourselves in this masculine energy mode of driving and constant production. But this way of living is failing us. There is a global epidemic of burnout, chronic fatigue, adrenal and thyroid issues, depression, anxiety and, devastatingly, a drastic increase in suicide levels, especially in teens and young adults. We need to find another way. This way of life is not serving us. It’s not creating health and it’s not creating happiness.
I invite you to join me on my Feminine Wisdom course. We’ll be exploring masculine and feminine energies and how we can foster our feminine energy and wisdom in daily life. We’ll be learning effective and accessible tools for helping us to manage the pressures and stressors of daily life. We’ll be learning more about our bodies and the wisdom and guidance that they hold for us. Details are on my website. This course will be held on a Thursday morning for 4 weeks. I hope to have you with me.
PS if you are a man receiving this email please forward it on to a woman in your life who you think may enjoy and benefit from this.
