Episode 54

Darkness is in itself benevolent

Published on: 23rd March, 2022

This episode is an interview between Shelby, Carissa, and Kathleen a.k.a. Kat.

Kat is a yoga instructor, as well as an earth medicine practitioner, and she hosts lunar events at The Yoga Underground. We encourage you to follow her on instagram, and you can learn more about what she does at moonmedicine.earth. If you like what you hear on the pod today, join her for a lunar event here.

Kat has an incredible ability to show the connection between breath and moon cycles. She walks us through the phases and importance of each moon, the inhale and exhale, and how we can utilize these symbols and moments to bring intentionality and awareness into our lives.

We discuss rituals and the importance of them, along with self reflection and the pain and discomfort that can bring. Kat has a gentle way of walking us through those hard moments and how we can use them for the betterment of our experiences.

We discuss the menstrual cycles, time keeping, and the sacred connection between all women. The conversation touches on Masculinity and Femininity, Patriarchal and Matriarchal, and the importance of these working together. We are, each of us, a dance of duality in motion. We are in our feels in this conversation. Taking this time to discuss these larger and more fluid ideas can help all of us feel more enlightened and connected. We hope you enjoy taking this time in conversation with us.

This podcast is a collection of conversations. Some of them are interviews, some are guided meditations and breath work, and a lot of them are just the two of us sitting down at the table to talk through our experiences and all the things we’ve learned. We discuss big and heavy topics like trauma, insecurities, body image. And although we might be discussing a weighty issue one moment, we will be laughing the next. We are not experts, we are not perfectionists. We are just two women on our own journey oh yeah, and we’re totally related! We hope to start the conversation with you and share resources, and we hope that you can totally relate too.
