On this episode of the Women's Edition, Stefana Serafina speaks to Shakti Malan, PhD, who passed away in July 2017 after a courageous journey with breast cancer.  In the conversation, recorded a year before her passing ,  we speak about some of the topics that Shakti was able to develop, teach, and bring  strongly into the world while  she lived:  Sexuality as a vital life force and the need to rediscover and embody its fluid, undirected flow in the female body as way of reconnecting to Earth, rebalancing the feminine principle, and liberating consciousness.

Tune in for this rich conversation about the body as a resource and an ally, the nature of sexual energy, Lilith and Eve, releasing sexual trauma and trusting the feminine flow again. Although this episode is under the Women's edition, it is a truly educational one that you could share with your men partners, friends, and collaborators as well.

THIS EPISODE's WISDOM QUOTES

"The feminine principle is the sexual principle, there is no difference really between the feminine and sexuality... A feminine body is a round, fluid, undulating ocean of sexual energy that wants  to move in an undirected and explorative way....Female sexuality and our sexual organs are a gateway to our inner mysteries. When we return to the innocence of our bodies and our sexuality and stop using our bodies to please or get something from others, and when we return to a connection between our souls, hearts, and sexuality, then when someone enters into us, that entering is going ti be an entering into the inner mysteries of the Divine Feminine. And with conscious and devotional attitude to the act of lovemaking, the one who enters a woman's temple will knowingly be entering the mysteries of Divine Feminine, and will be transformed by her."

"For us women to really discover our sexuality, it's is a looking inwards. It's a closing of our eyes and imagining that we are looking down in the body. We need to feel ourselves from the inside out, which is the opposite of what most women experience because we are so attuned to our partners, children, and communities, and our sexuality can become so externalized... In the act of making love, for women the natural movement is very much like a river, a fluid, spiraling, circular movement,  not at all what we see in the porn movies, which is the back-and-forth, pumping movement, very goal-oriented toward the genital orgasm. In fact, women's bodies want to really deeply relax and go into the soft, fluid unwinding. And that is the gateway."

OUR BODIES AS RECORD KEEPERS of ANCESTRAL STORIES- AND HOW TO REMEMBER, WITH RUBY GIBSON ThD

 

 

 

 

 

Host Stefana Serafina speaks to Ruby Gibson, ThD, about our bodies as record keepers and storytellers. According to Dr. Ruby's research and the  Somatic Archaeology© technique she developed, our bodies are much like archeological sites that hold the artifacts of our personal and multigenerational past,  and through that, the capacity to "remember" the stories of our lineage and forgotten past and bring them to resolution and reconciliation.

Dr. Ruby Gibson is  an international educator, researcher,  and author. A somatic pioneer,  for the last 35 years she  has been bridging bodywork, transpersonal psychology, human behavior, shamanism, and spirituality into two unique techniques she developed, called Somatic Archaeology© and Generational Brainspotting©.  Dr. Ruby's research has focused on trans-generational healing and recovery, centrally through the body's memory and wisdom.  She  is the executive director of the Freedom Lodge, a nonprofit organization providing  historical trauma healing to Native American populations. She offers trainings and workshops internationally.

This episode's wisdom quotes:

"Our bodies   like Earth are the keepers of memory. Just like the Earth contains the historical library of life in its ruins, graves, trees, rocks and oceans, our bodies inherit the archives of our ancestors, in their cells, muscles, blood, and bones...When we wish to examine how we evolved as a culture and a species, we dig in the earth...To examine how each of us evolved as individuals or as family systems, and to explore the social and spiritual influences that have shaped us, we excavate our bodies."

  "I believe it's the occupation of our generation to remember.  We have the resources, the capacity, and time to begin remembering our familial and ancestral stories. We are not simply remembering  for ourselves.  What we can remember we can potentially cure. And that cure lightens the burden of the ancestors who came before us. From what I've seen, they are waiting for this generation to clean up some things that they weren't able to clean up. And we are also lightening up he load for the next 7 generations. "
