Independent Motherhood and Empowered Birth Work TPP179

Play

Laura Sermeno Pic

In this episode I’m humbled and blessed to be able to explore the raw realness of a wombyn of color struggling to navigate and resist patriarchy, white male privilege, and mono-normative love and relationship styles. My new heroine  sheds light on many of the shadows of injustice that she has faced and fought throughout her life and her journey as an independent mother.

She shares about the beauty and magnificence of her natural home birth and the incredible role her doula played in the process. She makes a call out for support of her efforts to study the birth working arts so that she can be of service and give back to the community.

She holds sacred space for me to open up about my ethnic impoverishment and we celebrate the enriched experience of culture that she has as a Mexican-American East Los Angelino.

About Laura:
Laura was born in East LA, raised in Sur El Monte –UCLA matriculated, educated by her people only, from the classrooms to the streets. She studied Xicanx Studies and Spanish at UCLA, and within undergraduate studies she began to unfold her art of poetry and went on to perform original pieces.

Having had a beautiful, calm and empowering home birth, she is now on the path to joining other mamas on the journey and educating them as a friend and a doula.

Divine Crypto Feminisms for Unblocking Shakti with Nanu Berks TPP175

Nanu Berks Pic

In this podcast I’m joined again by Nanu Berks for a deep and insightful exploration of the power dynamics, gender politics, and social psychology of philanthropy, decentralized movement building, and business development in the crypto-currency and blockchain space. I appreciated her mentioning the Survival Wombyn project and that she held space for me to explain it, and shed some fear and embarrassment about soliciting women to join it. We share values of radical responsibility and agree to help keep each other in check.

It was refreshing and invigorating to commiserate and share strength and resolve to keep fighting the good fight with art, tech, and love.

Healing the Shadow of Sisterhood with Grace Diaz TPP148

Grace Diaz Pic
In this episode I’m joined again by Grace Diaz for a conversation about healing the shadow of sisterhood. I noticed a heart breaking social media post where she disclosed a recent story of betrayal within her inner circle of trusted women and since I’ve been caught in the crossfire of so many catastrophic falling outs among spiritually empowered women I felt the need to reach out and invite her to discuss these issues at length. I hope our efforts to raise awareness and provide idealistic solutions are of service to the greater good.

About Grace:

My passion of healing began at the age of ten, when my father, a Reiki Master of 20 years initiated me as a Reiki Master in Medellin, Colombia. For years after arriving back to the United States, I began teaching Usui Reiki all over the east coast.

Reiki lead me to Tantra. I was introduced to Shakti-Pakti-Tantric-Yoga by my Guru Tafari Sudra, in 2011, and it allowed me to heal my 10-year eating disorder. Our organization, YONI GRACE, LLC was birthed in 2012 when I felt the burning need to share the wisdom I was experiencing through Yoni Breathing.

In 2012 Grace began distributing Yoni Eggs wholesale worldwide and teaching thousands of women how to run a Yoni Egg business from home!

Grace hosts Yoni events in the Las Vegas area and internationally. In 2016, she was privileged to be hosted in Istanbul, Turkey. There, Grace and 35 Muslim women participated in a weekend workshop of the Yoni Egg practice with Yoni Yoga. Her classes are one of a kind and focus on helping women embrace their innate sensual wisdom for spiritual and physical wellness.

Women’s Nude Yoga for Group Healing and Empowerment with Rosie Rees TPP147

Play

In this episode I’m blessed to be joined by one of my new heroines in the women’s sexual-spiritual empowerment field. I discovered Rosie Rees on Instagram where she bravely and proudly posts some of the most beautiful and glorious images of women in true sisterhood and solidarity engaged in ritualized nude yoga. The intensity of the bliss and ecstasy exuded through these pictures compelled me to learn more and invite Rosie to be a guest. We have a lot of fun exploring the power of these practices and dig deeply into the cultural blockages that keep us hiding in our clothes most of the time.

Please forgive a bit of crackling noise due to technical difficulties in my signal. The issue has been resolved now so we’ll have a better quality audio file next time.
