207: DISCERNING WHO YOUR TEACHERS ARE
This engaging and thoughtful discussion with my dear friend Amber Richardson is a good one for all of you who are drawn to mysticism & feminine spirituality…and who acutely feel the missing Mother wound.
There has been a great proliferation of teachers and healers--what motivates them? What do you watch out for when looking for teachers, in them and in yourself? Amber is a storyteller & facilitator in many mediums, and has been teaching about spirituality & healing from patriarchy for 12 years. The common thread running through her creative work is a desire to expand the female experience within a spiritual context.
- 3 pillars of the Mother Wound
- Acknowledging the messiness of authentic spirituality; the trial & error process of being in the wilderness
- Religious rules of engagement for females (within our context, Mormonism): always scanning for who has the ‘authority’ in the room
- What does a woman in power look like?
Other readings mentioned in our episode:
- “Discovering the Inner Mother” Bethany Webster
- “Mother Hunger” Kelly McDaniel
- “Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble” Stephen Jenkinson & Charles Eisenstein (referenced in the episode as “The Crisis of Elderhood”)
