What Kind of Woman Are You? (Or, How Conflict Is The Road To Peace)

Okay.  This FB Live scared me, for a few reasons.  First of all.  WHO IN THE HECK AM I to ask you what kind of woman you are?  And since my audience is no bull shit smart as heck women, well, ha, I don't want to offend you!

And that brings me to part two of this week's scary theme, conflict.

Somehow I manage to talk about the need for conflict, or rather, the need to get with the fact that conflict is actually a part of the peace recipe.  And that leads to why for me, the kind of woman I want to be, is powerful, courageously loving, real, willing to forgive, wearing my heart on my sleeve but my wits about me.  Basically, me.  My innate version of a strong woman.

So I ask you in this one, what kind of woman are you?  Because I believe the world needs us in our vulnerability and in our strength, in our hearts and in our beautiful minds.  And especially, it needs us able to work together in empowered ways.

Whew.

See what I mean, that is an awesome and scary vision, because we know how much it takes.

Thank you for being a part of it!

The Transformational Power of Birth as Metaphor and Reality, with Kate Coletti

In this Love Bombers conversation I connect with Kate Coletti.  Kate has over 15 years of experience in women's health as a midwife, birth educator and advocate, prenatal yoga instructor, massage therapist and prenatal massage instructor, doula trainer, and mama.

She shares frankly about the power of having a strong "why" for choosing natural birth, the support network to go towards it, and how she assists women through her Enlightened Birth day retreats.  In the conversation we end up exploring the power of birth as experience, and as metaphor for any Love Bomber on a journey of creation and metamorphosis in their own lives.

I continue to be in awe of how the chemistry and physiology of our bodies mimic the very emotional and spiritual experiences we go on in our lives, and how, by design, we are meant to live in love.  From conception, to birth, to life itself.
