I’m spending several hours eavesdropping on intimate conversations between incredibly inspiring women who’ve untangled the knots our culture has tied them into. Want to join? It’s been running this week and is doing a marathon encore this coming weekend Feb 21/22. It’s a free online conference led by Liz DiAlto called Untame the Wild Soul Woman. If you totally dig it, you can also purchase it to watch over and over.
I first met Liz when she was a client of mine. I’ve been continually moved to watch the way this woman digs for depth and heart, the way she’s unabashedly and radiantly self-expressed and how she invites women to be more of who they are. Once a personal trainer who woke up to the pain and violence of the fitness industry, Liz started Wild Soul Movement to help liberate women from the interior and cultural constraints of body image bullshit. (My words, not hers. One of the things that I love about how Liz rolls, is that she doesn’t rial against what doesn’t work, but seeks to illuminate and grow what does.)
I’m one of the women she interviewed for Untame the Wild Soul Woman. Do we call it an interview? It felt more like the kind of conversation I have with my inner circle as we chew through the meat of our Soul’s musings to get to the bone of our cultural and existential quandaries. Our conversation left me feeling all stirred up and raw afterward. We plunged into the deep end of what we love about being women, the agony and liberation from self-loathing and body hate. We even danced through the light topic of how our generation was taught to distrust feminism.
Also, we probably cried. I can’t say for sure, but I don’t think Liz and I have ever had a conversation where we haven’t burst into tears at some point. You can find out here, and maybe even loosen some of your own cultural knots.
