Aphrodite Emerges {Elle Luna & Susie Herrick}

In this episode, host Maria Molfino takes on two inspirational women in one go: Elle Luna, a SF based artist and author, and Susie Herrick, a licensed therapist with over 20 years experience and author of an upcoming memoir, Aphrodite Emerges (to be released in the Fall). They tackle some big themes, the biggest being inner misogyny. Hear about their journeys and the challenges they faced, how to know when you’re following expectations vs. your deeper calling, the expansive power of dreaming bigger, and their upcoming workshop Aphrodite Emerges: Activate the Goddess Within (now open for enrollment at www.aphroditeemerges.com). Show Notes: -On Susie’s spiritual upbringing, and her earliest realizations of negative self-talk and the conflicting expectations within women in our society. [3:54] -Considering our ‘should’s: Where they come from, what they’re like for women, and how they imprison us. Plus, the powerful one-liner Elle read about Susie that caused them to meet. [8:36] -The insanely busy, exhausted, dried up, and deeply dissatisfied state Elle was in before turning things around. [11:46] -How do you cross over from discontent and inner dissonance to other side? Susie shares her own experience. [13:33] -Elle reads from their book, Aphrodite Emerges, about destroying ego and accepting new callings for life.
