Thank you for joining us at Shakti Stories!
Shakti Stories is on a mission to empower The Feminine for all people to flower and thrive.
Shakti is Sanskrit meaning 'the female principle of divine energy’. It is important to me to honour the Hindu lineage and Vedic philosophy from which the concepts of Shakti (creative power) and her consort Shiva (consciousness) are birthed.
What I mean by "The Feminine" is an internal and eternal principle that transcends gender, but can also be expressed through gender.
For centuries, women have been twisting and contorting themselves in various ways to fit into the norms & expectations of the world as we know it.
We are now waking up to all the ways that we’ve been limiting our deeper wisdoms or hiding aspects of our whole truth. The Feminine is not just passive. The Feminine can be active receptivity, mystery, power, eros and pure aliveness.
Expressing more of our essence means becoming aware of the true potential that we have in the body we reside in.
Today’s greatest threat to women’s freedom is what Marion Woodman called the “addiction to perfection”. This “never good enough” mentality means that no matter how much we do, it is never enough.
Inspired by great leaders in the field of Feminine Psychology & Spirituality such as Marion Woodman and Sally Kempton and my teachers Dr. Ana Mozol, Dr. Leslie Ellis, Dr. Jalaja Bonheim and Tami Lynn Kent, I have created this podcast with the hopes of broadening our understanding of feminine psychology and growing together in our embodiment of purpose and pleasure.
Shakti Stories seems to have a life of its own; I am creating it, but also along for the ride!
Lena Dolter is an Initiatory Guide to the Feminine Mysteries, and Embodiment Expert. She specializes in guiding women to truly know who they are, to love, honor, and respect themselves, through understanding their body and the energy of their menstrual cycle. Through her work, women learn what it means to embody their inner feminine (intuitive) energy and heal the overly expressed wounded masculine (doing) energy so they know who they really are and feel empowered to express their uniqueness in the world, with deep self trust and intuitive guidance.
In this episode, we discuss:
~ Energy management vs. time management
~ Using your cycle to make empowered decisions
~ Discover what you need and when during the 4 phases of your cycle, what they represent, and how they can support you.
