Welcome to Emerging Women’s Grace & Fire podcast where we hear from brilliant women leaders creating big change in the world. I’m Chantal Pierrat, your host, and I’ve got one word for you today. PUSSY. Say it with me. Pussy. Or just whisper it if you’ve got headphones on in public. Pussy. Does it make you smile? Do you feel a little badass? Then you’ll love today’s conversation with teacher, author and icon Regena Thomashauer, who’s made it her mission to elevate the pussy to the true seat of feminine power that it is. Her new book is called Pussy: A Reclamation (http://www.mamagenas.com/newbook/), and it is on fire. It thrills me to say that you can now read the word Pussy at the top of the New York Times bestsellers list! Regena and I talk about why today’s culture needs women to engage with the “full gale-force winds” of their sensual and sexual energy. We discuss how and why women got so disconnected from their sensual power, and how to reconnect with a few of Regena’s favorite practices. As Regena says, “We don’t have to be victimized by living in a patriarchal culture. We can create the solutions with this divine, magnificent, body that is woman.” So without further ado, let’s dive into this week’s Grace & Fire podcast “Pussy Power” with Mama Gena, Regena Thomashauer.
