Navigating Burnout and Sparking Creativity with LiYana Silver

In this episode of the Emerging Women Podcast, we navigate a topic that’s close to the heart of many women today: navigating burnout, stuckness, and overwhelm while not losing touch with our creative spark, inspiration, or innate feminine wisdom.

Joined by LiYana Silver, acclaimed author of Feminine Genius, we explore the journey to waking up and harnessing the wisdom of being a woman. LiYana has been a past speaker at Emerging Women Live, where she set the house on fire with her Feminine Genius.
