This is our “Life School” episode where we take a theme from the chapter we are studying from our current book club selection, Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and we share a tool, practice, or exercise for how to work with that theme in your life. This month we are studying chapter 7 “Joyous Body: The Wild Flesh”.
In this chapter we learned how to celebrate our bodies, not as a sculpture to be formed into society's standards, but as a wise, knowing, multi-faceted being in their own right. This chapter teaches you how to flip the script on cultural narratives about women's bodies. In today's episode we read letters from listeners who share stories of times they flipped the script on their own body stories.
