The Triple Goddess with Syma Kharal
To always feel and to know that you are divine is obtainable. To see yourself in the story of goddesses from across cultures is a true gift.

Today I chat with the amazing Syma Kharal as she shares her story and wisdom. Her journey towards wholeness from a tumultuous past felt lacking with the usual methods like talk therapy. Syma wanted personal power, to feel a strong sense of self-worth and to heal her womb. She began to study and connect with the goddess. By honoring every stage of goddess, maiden, mother and crone she teaches us that we can heal ourselves with their archetypal power. Even more amazing Syma leads us in a beautiful meditation that you can use anytime to connect to goddess wisdom.
