EP #18 Alexandra Pope & Sjanie Wurlitzer

Menstruality - a feminine spiritual practice

 
 
 

Episode #18

In Episode #18 on The Jen Mavros Show we continue the topic on this radical new approach of Menstruation and are joined by two gorgeous souls, Hay House authors, experts on the topic; Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer.

We unpack many juicy pieces on menstruality, hormonal contraception, fertility awareness and honoring the cyclic nature of our bodies.

"It's crucial for us to have reliable contraception, at the same time we need to have contraception that doesn't damage our bodies. We don't have a positive story about menstruation because there isn't a culture of empowerment around menstruation, women are taught to see it as a problem and the enemy and they don't develop a relationship with it. The moment you develop a relationship, you feel held by something very beautiful, you start to learn when you're fertile and not fertile. It becomes a very organic, embodied sense, you have greater confidence to know that you can use fertility awareness as your form of contraception.

You see the problem today is that women are not given the true story on hormonal contraception. We need a much bolder conversation about the reality, but before that, we need a new story being fed, being built up from the ground..." -Alexandra 

"When we're on hormonal contraception, we're actually cut off from our deep selves. In particular the thing that we're severed from is our spiritual connection and our creativity and it makes manifesting our calling and getting to know ourselves so much harder because that is what the cycle does, over the years of our life, the cycle is helping us to know ourselves and bring more of who we are into the world. The moment you have contraceptive you're stunting your development on some level. It's a really big deal." -Sjanie

EP #17 Lisa Lister

Creating A "Bloody" Brilliant Life. Period.

 
 
 

Episode #17

In Episode #17 on The Jen Mavros Show, we are joined by Hay House author, menstrual maven, plus-size yoga teacher + spiritual guide-ess, the amazing Lisa Lister. 

WOW my friends, this episode was so eye-opening and expansive for me as Lisa and I unpack the delicacies of what it REALLY means to bleed and menstruate. 

Lisa lovingly reframes how our menstruation cycle is meant to slow us down, to give us space to come into our bodies and pay attention because our womb is our oracle, it is where deep feminine wisdom is held.

"When you see the blood as a purification as opposed to something dirty and shameful, which is what we've been taught, it's a purification each and every month, it's an ego death. It's an opportunity for our ego to die and be reborn every single month which means we unfold so beautifully. We get to unfold and unravel another layer of ourselves, of our knowledge, of our self-knowledge, of our body-knowledge each month."

As if this wasn't juicy enough, she shares about her latest work of art, her book, Witch. 

Personally, the word and meaning of witch holds such a "taboo, scary and a little creepy" overlay of energy. You see in the movies the women who chant and gather in circle to curse and create spells to hurt people. Lisa was raised into a gypsy lifestyle and therefore calls herself a witch, but with her gentle explanation, I was able to REALLY encapsulate the truest and most beautiful meaning of the word. And in her definition, I am a witch too. Wait, wha? The word still is a bit off-putting to me, but with her help, I was able to open to seeing this gorgeous perspective.

Crowned ‘the defender of female awesomeness’, Lisa is such a vibrant and loving soul really embracing these controversial topics with reverence and love to help shed light on them. She is here to stand and help women all around the world reclaim their SHE power and WITCH-ness.

Lisa Lister is a writer, menstrual, fertility + reproductive health practitioner and founder of the SHE Flow movement; a personal invite to celebrate the fiercely feminine, sensual pleasure of being a woman through movement, massage, mysteries + magic. 
Lisa is dedicated to helping women crack their lady code, love their lady landscape + stay woken in the womb.

This is Uh-mazing, 20 billion thumbs up, you must listen to this gem.

About Layla

Layla Martin brings deep wisdom and outrageous entertainment to the topics of sex and modern Tantra with practical and fun guidance on how to have super-evolved relationships and absolutely epic sex.

Having started off studying sexuality at Stanford University, Layla then migrated to the jungles of Asia and spent seven wild years dedicating herself to real Tantric evolutions, working with various masters and crazy gurus. 

Along the way, she began to heal from childhood sexual abuse. (Starting from a young age, she used to pray every night that she'd never become a woman and she couldn't even go into a lingerie shop at the age of 16 because sex frightened the hell out of her.) After trying regular psychotherapy tools and getting little relief, she turned to every alternate healing tool she could find...therapeutic pussy massage...Tantric breath-work, the jade egg practice. If it exists, she likely tried it. And in the end, she got a very, very clear idea of what truly works to heal sexual trauma and abuse. 

From this, she designed revolutionary programs to awaken couples and singles to their deep sexual power and capacity. In her weekly YouTube series, books and programs she demonstrates everything from how to have mind-blowing cervical orgasms and how to give an epic penis massage to how to get real in talking to your partner about sex.

Her work strikes a chord with highly intelligent, successful and conscious-minded people, whether they have suffered from sexual trauma or not. That's because so much of what holds people back is sexual guilt, shame, fear and numbness, and her work addresses the true underlying issues that block people from living and loving like they know they can.
