Healing Shame, Unwinding Patriarchy & The Heroine’s Journey with Sara Avant Stover

Description:

In this inspiring and honest conversation, Sara Avant Stover speaks openly about many of the personal challenges she has undergone over the last 5 years and how she has navigated some extremely challenging terrain. She speaks about everything from shame, to grief, to rage and how she has worked internally with some of the most confronting aspects of her own mind.

Sara educates us about the steps of the Heroine’s Journey and shares many valuable lessons from The Book of SHE: Your Heroine’s Journey into the Heart of Feminine Power that she published 5 years ago.

We touch on the concept of building a tolerance for uncertainty, sitting in the unknown and the cycles of death and dissolution.

Sara shares about the medicine and gifts of each season both in the external world and in the season’s of our lives and discusses some of the healing modalities that have been most useful and effective for her.

We explore the concept of the mid-life transition and everything that it entails and what it means to truly step into your full life’s work.
