Today my guest is Sara Avant Stover, a teacher of feminine spirituality and empowerment, and bestselling author & founder of The Way of the Happy Woman.
Sara graduated from Columbia University’s all-women’s school, Barnard College. After a cancer scare in her early twenties, Sara moved to Thailand, where she lived for ten years and embarked on a decade-long healing and spiritual odyssey throughout Asia. She has since gone on to uplift tens of thousands of women worldwide.
A pioneer in contemporary women’s work, she’s the creator of the world’s first Women’s Yoga Teacher Training, Reversing Our “Curse,” and The SHE School. Her new book: The Book of SHE: Your Heroine’s Journey into the Heart of Feminine Power celebrates all that it means to be a woman, from mythological underpinnings to the cycles of our day-to-day lives.
In today’s episode, Sara and I spoke about:
Rhythm – it’s significance and power for women
The Heroine’s Journey vs. The Hero’s Journey
Her 5 steps of the Heroine’s Journey
Archetypes and the importance of the Crone
Learning how to navigate through “darkness” and how to “Turn on Your Brights”
Here is my conversation “Living the Heroine’s Journey” with the wise and powerful Sara Avant Stover.
