The Power of Our Periods: Liberation Through Lunar + Ancestral Connections with Juliana Luna
In this episode, we are speaking with Yemisi "Juliana" Luna, Creatrix of The Aluna Method and a multidisciplinary artist, leader, mentor and narratorial creator whose mission is to empower women through movement, ancestral awareness, and intuitive knowledge. In this soulful chat, Luna shares how she came to create The Aluna Method - a tool to help you map your monthly cycles, understand its power and feel totally in charge of your sexual energy - through a powerful initiation and remembrance connecting with her Ancestral land of Nigeria. We touch on the Yoruba philosophy woven in the Aluna Method and Luna’s manifesto: paying back in service of her ancestors, rebuilding their narrative, and building a bridge to healing for the collective. You’ll hear Luna’s view on why it’s imperative to connect with our Ancestors now, the critical work of undoing the harm in our ancestry on a daily basis, and how the moon is integral in our healing, growth and integration. We talk about the power of our periods to regenerate, remember, clear and heal and why Luna sees our period as the “ultimate decolonization teacher.” Luna shares her perspective on endometriosis, the emotional body connection, the correlation Luna sees with high functioning, high achieving women who hold onto emotion. There is so much in this conversation to support bleeding people in our relationship to our bodies and moon time as a pathway to sovereignty and self-empowerment. Enjoy!
