Womb Whispers

Let’s be honest: As a woman or menstruating person in this society, it isn’t exactly easy to grow up with a lot of reverence for your body, nor your cycle. In this spiritual-feminist podcast about menstrual wisdom and activism for our modern times, I share musings, reflections and conversations to make living as a cyclical being (ALL beings are cyclical, by the way!) in a world set up for linear progress more easeful for you. Let yourself be inspired to detox from the systems of oppression you’ve most probably internalised, so you can walk the spirals of your life with more confidence and trust in yourself and your gorgeous body and reclaim the superpower and ancient wisdom already stored in your bones! And no, you don’t need to have a uterus to benefit from this!

A Fireside Chat about the Beauty of Death as a necessary phase in our human evolution


In the western part of the world, Death is a scary thing, the end of something. Maybe our pain can be carried in a way that is infused with beauty, when we realise Nature works in cycles and we are able to experience a rebirth of something new.

Death in this western part of the world is a scary thing, it feels like the end of something, losing something. We are no longer connected to what was, the history, the happy memories, so it feels really brutal, a painful process. Maybe our pain can be carried in a way that is infused with beauty, when we realise this is how nature, the universe, the cosmos works. It works in shapes that are circular, it works through cycles, it works through seasons. And as we go through those seasons, we are able to experience a rebirth of something, of a pattern, of a relationship, and it gives so much room for new things, new growth, new perspectives. And that is where the beauty is, whenever we let go of the old pattern, we’re actually making room for a new one, one that we hopefully get to consciously choose and create and design into our life.
