There's a reason I included WEEKLY live, guided meditations in We Are The Culture Makers 2022 and it's this: ⁠
⁠
In order to really know something, in our bones, it can't ONLY come from one direction. ⁠
⁠
We need to pick up the signals from many sources. We've got to receive the messages via our heads, our hearts, our bodies and our spirits.⁠
⁠
***⁠
We deserve to feel calm. We deserve to feel relief from anxiety and stress. ⁠
⁠
Even as we're growing our lives, growing our careers, changing our culture...our lives can't be a relentless grind. ⁠
⁠
There's got to be space and grace.⁠
⁠
🌸So that the knowledge of who you are -- A CULTURE MAKER -- seeps into your bones.⁠
⁠
🌸So that this knowingness forms a protective cloak that you carry with you everywhere.⁠
⁠
🌸And so that you're regularly relieving stress and calming your central nervous system. ⁠
⁠
This world can be hell on sensitive, thoughtful women and I want our daily experience in our own skins to change.⁠
⁠
***⁠
That's why I'm so delighted that yoga breathing & meditation teacher  Ntathu Allen leads these LIVE guided meditations for us each week.⁠
⁠
Because We Are The Culture Makers is NOT about work-work-work. ⁠
⁠
Gentleness and replenishment is part of the culture-making, power-building experience we're creating, together.⁠
⁠
love + justice⁠

Wondering if you’re worthy, ⁠
over-giving ('tis the season)⁠
questioning if you belong at the table, ⁠
and feeling like you have to do everything yourself ⁠
⁠
are NOT your natural inclinations.⁠
⁠
They’re the voice of an unjust culture working through you without your consent.⁠
⁠
So is imposter complex.⁠
⁠
We doubt ourselves because we live in a woman-doubting culture. ⁠
⁠
And...no more.⁠
⁠
Let's change the channel.⁠
⁠
Let's unlearn this toxic social conditioning⁠
and reaffirm + revalidate ourselves...⁠
⁠
...so we can shrink our self-doubt and grow our power.⁠
⁠
Personally AND collectively.⁠
⁠
Because #WeAreTheCultureMakers⁠
⁠
:::::⁠
⁠
Please, in the midst of the pressure that can come with this time of year, take a moment to connect with someone who sees your power and sincerity. Let them tell you great things about yourself. Really hear it. ⁠
⁠
And, if you can, do it for someone else. Get on the phone and praise the sh*t out of them.⁠
⁠
We're often running on empty tanks and being seen and affirmed with sincere & true words of encouragement are pure jet fuel.⁠
⁠
Let's fly. ⁠
⁠
Or land the planes that have been in the air too long.⁠
⁠
love + justice,⁠
