On Remembering Our True Nature
On this episode, I talk with Heather Pennell co-founder of Rising Woman and Facilitator and Guide of shadow-work, conscious relationship, breath-work, and tantric practices. Not to mention an incredibly beautiful writer.
This is Heather’s second time on the Real Rebel Podcast and I was so happy she was willing to sit down for a chat again. This time we got to talk a little more casually about whatever came up naturally in our conversation. Which included Heather’s struggles with PCOS, birth control, mental health, the importance of feeling our feelings, relationships, abandonment wounds and why they’re so prevalent in our society today, a woman’s Moon Time (a.k.a. her period), the power of plant medicine, and much much more.
