This week’s show is with Isis Leeor. Isis is responsible for a movement of whole, ripe, and unapologetic women who are finally coming out of the closet. For 15 years, she has been passionately teaching people (women and men) how to connect both hearts, the one in their chest and the one in their pelvis.
Isis Leeor has been featured in a myriad newspapers and radio shows alongside people like Storm Large, Dan Savage, Deborah Anapol and Sark. She is a counselor with an extensive background in Body Psychotherapy, Tantra, Hypnotherapy. Basically she does some kick ass embodied work online and in person, through workshops, intensives and private sessions. She is currently working on her book entitled “Feral Female.”
In addition to a lot of official studies, Isis has also howled at the moon, been saved by Qi-gong, taken drugs with a therapist, smoked a peace pipe, flipped off a Shaman, learned and unlearned emotionally responsible language, danced with her shirt off in public, avoided marrying an Essene guru, and worn cocktail dresses all over the world while going commando.
In this conversation, Isis and I explored ‘the idea of other women as home’. How our cultural and personal wounds get in the way of connecting deeply and openly with other women, how we compete instead of connect, and how we can heal and learn to be with other women in a way that allows us to see and enjoy each other’s unique beauty and feel safe in that experience.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Most women will have been taught, directly and indirectly that safety comes from sizing other women up and deciding where they are in a hierarchy in comparison to us – this is mostly dependent on factors that we believe make women attractive to men.
- When we’re willing to own and express our darkness and our wildness, we can show up whole… only then are we available to have a full connection with another women. Practice choosing depth, sharing your emotions and your truth. I’ve seen that we are almost always rewarded when we do so.
- We can create new patterns in our brains and therefore in our embodied experience. We can learn to be with other women in an honest, authentic and loving way. Being with other women in circle is a gorgeous example of this… the magic follows us outside of the circle because we’ve learned it’s safe to be this way with other women.
