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 Deeper Dive into the Challenges of Mothering & Motherhood


Hayley Anderson and Lisa Jara dive deeper into the hardships and challenges mothers face – especially the patriarchal myth of the "perfect mother" – and how we unravel our own conditioning, loving ourselves in the process, biases and all.

My guest Hayley Anderson and I are here to shed light on the hardships and challenges parents, and especially mothers, face and how harmful it can be to normalize them or uphold the patriarchal myth of the "perfect mother". After our "Fireside Chat about the Challenges of Mothering and Motherhood" (episode 44), we continued chatting, and the more we talked, the deeper we went and unearthed some juicy insights that we didn't want you to miss. So this episode is a series of snippets of conversation that happened after our recording, that show how we unravel our own conditioning and try to love ourselves in the process, biases and all. Join us as we dive into: - the liberation and healing I personally experienced from my conversation with Hayley - the conflict between putting your children first and prioritising yourself - busting the patriarchal myth of a "perfect mother/parent" - making the conscious decision to allow the world to raise our children, too - a radically different perspective on the mother-child-relationship Resources we mentioned: A Fireside Chat about the Challenges of Mothering and Motherhood, on the podcast: https://lisa-jara.com/en/blog/e44-a-fireside-chat-about-the-challenges-of-mothering-motherhood or on YouTube: https://youtu.be/aQLWWDmcjUk Book a Free Discovery Call with me, for a happy, healthy period or happy, health (peri)menopause experience: https://lisa-jara.as.me Do you want to start your week with some soul-infused musings that support you in your personal cyclical experience in a world set up for linear progress?
