ALisa Starkweather - The Dream is ON
ALisa is a holder of a concept we talk about a lot at Bold Tranquility: "holding everything just as it is." How can we, as women, hold it all? The light, the dark, the joy, the trauma, the coming together, and the falling apart? How can we dream BIG in a world that has a lot of intense energy, whether it’s a personal story you have that feels big or it’s a connection to world or community issues? ALisa’s sweet spot is helping women navigate through these lead you down the stair case and dance with all your shadows (the fear, anger, rage). That’s ALisa. Your guide, your mentor to break open. She's like a midwife, really. Professionally she’s known for some really big ways she gathers women to help them believe in themselves. Gatherings like Women in Power, Priestess Path, and she is the founder of the Red Tent Temple Movement. She has literally helped women reclaim this ancient art of women gathering together, believing in themselves on a deep soul level. We're honored to have her join us in a conversation about the Dream and how women can dream big and not exhaust themselves. That’s the old paradigm of leadership. We’re talking today about how to dream in a way that leads you do things in the world that express your true nature. If you're ready to be you then you'll love this podcast.
