Our guest on the podcast today is Laurie Benson, author of the award-winning book, Leading From the Feminine, a speaker and somatic awareness coach. Her work continues to evolve as her awareness expands.

From her beginnings in climate change to founding an organization supporting women in agriculture, to where she sits today - at the intersection of embodiment, trust, and deep knowing, Laurie holds our shared humanity at the center of all she does. She opens the door to opportunities that break down existing paradigms and help us move through the world guided by our deeper wisdom and the truth of our interconnection.

In today’s conversation, we go deep and discuss the idea of holding space, rather than always resorting to action and activation, as a means of effecting transformation. Her recent expedition into the Ecuadorian rainforest ignited new perspectives for her work exploring this deep connection between women, consciousness, and water. She shares how women have the power to heal the waters that flow through them, thereby contributing to the healing of the earth itself.

Laurie’s work also extends to a deep connection with the prophecy of the eagle and the condor, symbolizing the balance between masculine and feminine energies. How we are currently at a critical point in this prophecy, poised to restore the much-needed equilibrium between these energies and create positive change. So incredibly inspiring!

Key Takeaways

  • The importance of understanding where we exist in our bodies
  • Existing filters in our bodies and their impact on communication and connections
  • Different ways of holding space as the genesis of change
  • Activating the heart and creating powerful change
  • Insights about water from dreams and visionary experiences in the rainforest

Memorable Quote

“I truly believe that women need to heal the water that flows through us and understand that by healing our waters, we're participating in the healing of the earth. Women are weaving a new design for humanity.”—Laurie Benson
