How do you relate to being a maiden? A mother?

The Mother archetype has nothing to do with bearing children. Instead, it’s a reflection of your hard-earned maturity and a deep connection with your most feminine self.

In today’s episode, I’m chatting with author and teacher Sarah Durham Wilson about the maiden to mother journey.

In her work, Sarah guides women through the stages of life–the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone–as they unlock new truths about themselves and connect more deeply with their femininity. 

In a world full of Maidens, Sarah is shedding light on the power of Mothers. And in doing so, she’s helping us all unlearn the damage of our patriarchal society.

Join me in today’s episode as I chat with Sarah about her journey to uncovering her Mother archetype.. We’re sharing the struggles that come with unlearning our societal conditioning and why it’s okay to feel fed up sometimes. Plus, we’re breaking down the performative and partriarchally-driven activism we see online and explaining the damage it can cause.

In episode 381 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss:

  • [3:15] Sarah’s relationship with The Mother and how she chooses to commune with the divine
  • [4:19] Connecting with nature as a way of connecting to The Mother
  • [9:46] Coming home to where you’re meant to be and recognizing when a place is calling you
  • [11:05] Finding joy and levity in life and recognizing it for the power that it is
  • [17:32] Why it’s okay to feel fed up with the world and how to embrace your “grumpiness”
  • [22:39] Taking a break from dating as a way of healing yourself and unlearning the culture
  • [29:23] Social media activism and why to “do the work in the dark”
  • [34:35] Humility vs. hubris and embracing the Mother instead of the Maiden
  • [39:35] The Maiden and The Mother archetypes and how to use them to understand the people in your life
  • [45:54] Why being a “Mother” isn’t about having children but instead about the mature feminine
  • [49:57] Building your community of mature women and Mothers
  • [53:54] The problem with men preaching “goodness” and why it’s not enough
  • [01:02:46] The danger of patriarchalised women and how to break the cycle
  • [01:06:09] How to be more mindful of men who try to teach women how to be feminine through submissiveness
  • [01:09:04] Sarah’s upcoming book launching June 7, 2022, Maiden to Mother

About the EMBODIED Podcast with Elizabeth DiAlto 

Since 2013 I’ve been developing a body of work that helps women embody self love, healing and wholeness. We do this by focusing on the four levels of consciousness - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

In practical terms this looks like exploring tools and practices to help you  tune into the deep wisdom of the body and the knowing of the heart, which I believe are gateways to our souls. Then we cultivate a new relationship with our minds that allows the mind to serve this wisdom and knowing and soul connection, rather than override it, which is what many of us were taught.

If you’ve been doing self help or spiritual development work for a while, these are the types of foundational things that often people overlook in pursuit of fancier concepts that often aren’t practical or sustainable. Here, we will focus on building these strong foundations so you can honestly and thoroughly embody self love. If you’re feeling it, subscribe to the show, and leave us a review wherever you listen from. You can also keep up with show updates and community discussion on Instagram here.

Do you know the true source of your healing? It’s not a pill or a vial. It’s not even your coach or your mentor. No, your greatest source of healing comes from within, from your own medicine.

In today’s episode, I’m chatting with indigenous medicine woman Asha Frost about her book You Are The Medicine.

As a medicine woman, Asha guides others through their healing journeys, helping them decolonize their thoughts and understand the signs they receive from the universe.

But a huge part of what she does is guide her clients to see their own power and facilitate their own healing.

Join me in today’s episode as I chat with Asha about becoming your own medicine and connecting with your inner self. She’s talking about the process of decolonization and how to broach the topic with others, especially children and older generations. Plus, she’s sharing the value of connecting with your own ancestors and implementing their teachings in your spiritual journey.

Is accountability enough?  

We see it often: Some big-name celebrity, author, or self help star jumps on the bandwagon of a newly relevant social cause, and suddenly they’re being treated as a savior of the people. But when you really pay attention, their motivations become clear, and their actions are often performative at best, harmful at worst.

 

In today’s episode, I’m chatting with anti-racism and decolonization educator and activist Louiza “Weeze” Doran about the importance of actionability in addition to accountability.

 

With the rise of “cancel culture,” we’ve witnessed plenty of big names lose their platforms due to lack of accountability. But at the same time, others are celebrated for posting a black square, sharing a “peace and love” quote, or taking a lukewarm stand.

 

It’s high time we hold the loudest voices in our society accountable for their actions, not just their words. Because as Weeze says in this episode, actionability is the true test of integrity.

 

Join me in today’s episode as I chat with Weeze about the cultural shifts we’re seeing right now. We’re getting real about the biggest names in the self-help industry (ie Brene Brown) and why they thrive in our white-centric, capitalist society. Plus, we’re talking about the ways you can open yourself up to others’ viewpoints while still protecting your energy and truth.

  • [9:55] How we change on our journeys to decolonize and decondition ourselves
  • [13:05] The integrity of actionability and how to see through virtual signaling
  • [27:38] Digging deeper into the messages we accept as truth
  • [33:58] Being able to hold many truths at once instead of falling into the ‘us vs. them’ trap
  • [38:14] Leading with curiosity instead of judgment
  • [46:24] Opening yourself up to other viewpoints while also protecting your energy and your truths
  • [50:44] How to find knowledgeable voices and avoid those that aren’t worth your energy
  • [59:20] Why we should hold the loud voices in our culture accountable and start digging into their motivations

Is prayer part of your daily practice? So many of us grew up with a dogmatic, rigid idea of prayer. We sat through church services, repeating words we didn’t truly understand the meanings of. But over the past ten years, I’ve discovered that prayer is fluid and entirely unique to each and every person who practices it. Others of us grew up with no relationship to prayer at all. And I’m sure some people also had a really beautiful relationship to it.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing my personal journey with prayer and helping you start your own intentional prayer practice or refine however you’ve been practicing.

Growing up Catholic, I developed a deep connection with “God,” Jesus, and  Mother Mary. Now, I incorporate elements of my upbringing in my daily practice and relationship with the divine, but I also don’t let the understanding of my upbringing limit me.

Whether or not you prescribe to a certain religion or consider yourself more “spiritual,’ your prayer practice is a powerful tool in developing your connection with the divine.

Join me in today’s episode as I explain how my prayer practice has grown and evolved over the years. I’m breaking down the different parts of a prayer and also sharing some of my favorites to inspire you if you are open for inspiration..
