180 Your Cravings + Desires Are A Portal

What do you want? It might seem like a simple or even childish question, but I believe it is an essential question in every woman’s life. Sometimes, “What do I want” is a dangerous question.

If you’ve never taken the time to get honest about your desires, or you are just beginning to unlock the power of desire, then this is the place for you to be. Welcome to the safest place to let your deepest wishes run...

176 Comedy Will Save Us with Lizz Winstead

With so much crazy darkness going on in the world around me, I am looking to comedians for inspiration, truth, and just a little bit of comic relief. It’s my belief that comedians have to be incredibly smart to put their finger on the truth of the matter, and then turn it on its head in a funny way. I have been watching educated, woke comedy so much recently, that I knew I needed to bring some of this inspiration to your ears as well. This is why I am super excited to introduce (or maybe...

170 Goddesses Get Paid

Today, I want to go into battle against “The Goddess Myth.” A TIME Magazine article attempted to address one of our culture’s most pervasive problems, but I think they missed the big picture. Our media paints a picture of perfect, goddess-like womanhood. You’ve seen the pictures: the natural birthing mama with a fully organic household and effortless beauty in spades. These images can be damaging because they never allow for imperfections. Real goddesses had both a light and a dark side....

166 How Women Get Power with Kasia Urbaniak

Have you ever been left feeling small, or unsafe, due to a sexually suggestive comment? Did you perhaps dismiss the comment, because you weren't entirely sure of the intention behind it?
