64 | 7 Ways of the Warrior Woman

2/21/2019
More
The warrior woman archetype has largely been erased from our awareness. We’ve forgotten how to embody our innate and noble fierceness. In today’s SHE Talk I go into this archetype in more depth. Because every woman can be a warrior, but not every woman says yes to becoming one. Even the seemingly strongest and most capable women I know can fall into the trap of learned powerlessness in some areas of their lives. I know I certainly have. This stuff runs so deep! If you want to go deeper into...

59 | Essentials for a Daily Practice

12/11/2018
More
Today's talk comes from a recent Facebook Live class I taught on "Essentials for a Daily Practice." A daily practice doesn't need to be strict and mechanical. Rather, it can feel supportive, like seeking the solace of a good friend. In this class, I share essentials of an effective, nourishing (and doable) daily practice. This is a potent time of year to rekindle our passion for our practice. Plus, the world is calling us to more-- and that more isn't possible without a solid foundation of a...

58 | Your Life is Your Initiation

12/7/2018
More
What if life is happening for you, not to you? What if everything that you’re experiencing is an answer to your deepest prayer? What if your greatest challenges were doorways into your greatness? In the sixth and final Dakini’s Den episode, I share an excerpt from a class where I speak about resilience, overcoming challenging emotions, and viewing life as your initiation. If you’re feeling beaten down by the circumstances of your life, today’s talk will inspire and uplift you. And,...

57 | Shifting from “Me” to “We” in Feminine Leadership

12/3/2018
More
Today, in the second-to-last episode in the series, “Dakini’s Den,” I’m sharing a talk on the dangers of being a “solopreneur” and how service and collaboration are the highest forms of feminine leadership. “Self-Care Isn’t Selfish,” reads one of the sections in my first book, The Way of the Happy Woman. I wrote those words almost nine years ago, and we women were in a very different place then than we are now. As I look around today, I see that there’s now too much emphasis on self-care....

56 | Become the Master of Your Mind

11/29/2018
More
Welcome back to the second half of our Dakini’s Den series. Today’s talk is an excerpt from one of this year’s SHE School classes. In it, I discuss the power of the mind. I’ve learned over the years just how powerful my mind is. I can create heaven or hell around me, depending upon my thoughts. A Course in Miracles teaches that every thought creates form on some level. Can we just take that in for a moment? On retreat, after a few consecutive days of being quiet, moving more slowly, resting,...

55 | Trusting Your Instincts in Business

11/13/2018
More
During this third episode of our Dakini’s Den series, I’m doing something a little differently. I’m inviting you to be a fly on the wall in my 2018 mastermind program- the SHE Leadership Circle. Last week, I sat down with three (amazing!) women from this year’s circle: Lori Mihalich-Levin, a lawyer/author/founder of “The Mindful Return”; Amelia Barrett, a yoga teacher/neurologist; and Lotus Baker, a stay-at-home mom turned yoga/art studio owner. We spoke about the biggest obstacles they...

54 | How to Be More Intuitive

11/11/2018
More
However gifted someone is, her intuition about you is just that. Hers. She’s still going to see you through the vantage point of her life. To some degree, her perspective is going to be a projection onto you. This is why the safest and most accurate expert on your life is YOU. No one knows you as well as you know yourself. It’s much wiser to invest in honing your own intuition than to hire others for theirs. The former will serve you faithfully for your entire life. It’s like the Chinese...

53 | Uncovering the Blazing Truth Within

11/7/2018
More
During the first two weeks of November and December, to celebrate the opening of my year-long programs (A Year of SHE & the SHE Leadership Circle), I’m sharing a new series on the podcast called “Dakini’s Den.” In Tibetan Buddhism, Dakinis are manifestations of Awakening appearing in feminine form. Each of these SHE Talks is an excerpt from the “Dakini’s Den” classes I taught in the 2018 year-long programs; and today’s talk is all about turning into the blazing truth within you. All the...

56 | Linda Weber on the Patriarchy, Abortion & Self-Authoring Our Womanhood

9/4/2018
More
Today’s podcast guest leads us into a rich and deeply needed conversation about abortion. In the fourth and final episode (for now) of the # I Had an Abortion podcast series, I interview Linda Weber. A woman in our community led me to Linda after I published my abortion story in July. And I’m so glad she did. I feel this is the most important podcast episode I’ve ever shared. Linda Weber is a true wise woman. She’s been a psychotherapist, spiritual counselor for women, and active feminist...

55 | Dr. Christiane Northrup on Energy Vampires, Abortion & Owning Our Erotic Energy

8/25/2018

Welcome to the third episode in the # I Had an Abortion series! I’m honored that Dr. Christiane Northrup agreed, graciously and enthusiastically, to share with us today her wisdom on this taboo topic. No stranger to standing at the frontlines in advocacy of women’s health and wholeness, Dr. Northrup is a pioneer in this field, New York Times bestselling author, and board certified OB/GYN. She’s also one of my personal sheroes whose shoulders I stand upon to be the woman I am and do the work...

54 | A Candid Q & A with Sara About Abortion

7/25/2018
More
Welcome to the second episode in the #I Had an Abortion series. Almost three years ago, I invited one of my closest friends, Emma Teitel, to interview me for the inaugural episode on my podcast, SHE Talks. Today, I asked her to come back so that we could talk about abortion. I felt called to have this conversation with Emma, in particular, for a few key reasons: * Emma and I have been close friends for a decade, and she was one of the extraordinary women who stood by me through the...

7/10/2018

Sisters: We’re about to cross a big threshold together. Today I’m sharing the most important story I’ve ever told. As you read it, you have complete freedom to think and feel anything. Whatever experience you have, own it. The only thing in life that we can ever fully trust is our own experience. The world is changing. Women are changing. We’re changing. I’m changing. What’s called for now is a whole new era of womanhood and women’s leadership. An era where each of us lives in full integrity...

52 | Trusting Your Soul’s Journey

6/20/2018

Welcome to the final episode of our summer season. Confession: Sometimes reading or listening to my own teachings lifts my spirits. This was true with today’s talk. Being human can be hard. This world can be harsh. But the challenges we face are never random. They’re here to help us uncap latent strengths within us. The more we face, the stronger we become. To keep having the courage to say “yes” to life’s challenges-- and stay sane and true to ourselves along the way-- we need all the...

51 | Putting an End to the “Disease to Please”

6/15/2018
More
When we hit rocky roads– inner and outer– is when we’re mostly going to want to lean on the advice of “experts.” But, as I recently heard a wise person say, “Advice is the devil.” And I would have to agree. Leadership comes from taking refuge in your inner wisdom. It asks us to source guidance from ourselves, and then to trust the path we’re shown. Unfortunately, this approach is the exact opposite of the one we’ve been encouraged to follow our whole lives. In today’s SHE Talk, the third in...

50 | Re-Wilding Feminine Leadership

6/10/2018
More
Enough of us are waking up now that we’re starting to see the widespread erasure of undomesticated women from religion, myth, and positions of power. As the lies that we’ve been taught to live crumble, we don’t have historical references to look to to remind us of who we once were. The only place we can look is in our own hearts and bodies. Buried deep in our subconscious, the seats of souls, lives the memories of who we truly are. In today’s Poolside Sutra, I explore this in more depth....

49 | The Power of Silence

6/7/2018

So many are touting the benefits of sleep these days (hallelujah!), so today I’m going to focus on sleep’s less-talked-about sister– silence. Silence is hard to come by these days. From lawn mowers to garbage trucks, traffic to TVs, we’re constantly being bombarded by... noise. This is one of many the reasons why I offer an annual silent retreat. For seven days, women can undertake a sacred pilgrimage– away from the stresses of their daily lives, to a beautiful place in nature, and into...

48 | How to Gracefully Navigate the Unknown

I wanted to share the audio from a talk I gave at the end of March here in Boulder at an event called “The Truthteller Tour,” hosted by Kelly McNelis, founder of Women for One.This is the first public talk I’ve given since The Book of SHE came out... two-and-a-half years ago! So, yeah. This was a big step for me. I’m still in the wobbly space between death and rebirth, so, rather than muscling myself into a faux confidence, I gave myself permission to show up in my full rawness. To do this,...

47 | An Exciting Take On Uncertainty

1/27/2018

Welcome to the 5th and final episode in the mini-series, “Disrupting the Divine Feminine.” Whether it’s a health problem, relationship stress, the fear that the goodness you’re experiencing will fade, or simply a question mark about your next steps, we all live with varying degrees of uncertainty. It’s inescapable. Even though we like to think that our surroundings are fixed and stable, the truth is, we don’t know if we’ll be here this time next year, much less tomorrow. Rather than...

46 | Overcoming Our Addiction to Experts

1/23/2018

Welcome to episode 4 in our mini-series: Disrupting the Divine Feminine. Our intuition was educated out of us when we were very young. Our parents told us to listen to them rather than to how we felt. Now we look to Google for advice instead of into our own hearts and minds, and we’re paying a big price. Isn’t it time you get the education in self-trust that you never got? In today’s SHE Talk, I share: -Why you need to stop asking for (and giving) advice -How we’ve become a culture that’s...

1/19/2018

Welcome to episode 3 in our mini-series on Disrupting the Divine Feminine. And today we’re going deeper. Externally, do you look successful and put together; but, inside, you feel like you’re really hiding. Do you feel that, deep down, you don’t want others to really see you; and, most of all, you don’t really want to see yourself? You have the whole setup: the color-coded chakra candles, the crystals by your bed, the goddess cards, the recycled yoga mat. Oh! And let’s not forget– Mercury...
