Show Notes Chapter Markers

This is our Book Club episode where we discuss a chapter from our current book choice: Women Who Run With the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. In this episode, we discuss chapter 11 "Heat: Retrieving a Sacred Sexuality”.

Summary:

This chapter focuses on the idea that sacred sexuality is the wild part of us that is fully engaged in our senses, alive, and free. This chapter shows us how to take deep, belly laughs, and how to come back to ourselves through the sacred and the sacrilege in equal measure. This chapter is for those of us who want to learn more about sacred sexuality and how to connect to this part of our wild woman. It’s for those of us who want to enliven our senses and learn to live in a way that is deeply connected to our feelings. And it’s also for those of us who have been taking life a little too seriously and need to remember everything doesn’t need to be so neat and tidy.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What roses can teach us about Sacred Sexuality and connecting to our senses
  • Our favorite stand up comics and how laughter can set us free
  • How Sacred Sexuality and laughter can help in times of grief
