Today’s episode is twice as special as usual, because I have twice as many guests! Moun D’Simone and Rachel Pringle are here to talk about breathwork, self-expression, food, spirituality, and reclaiming your wild woman. They’re so devoted to that last point that they came together to found Wild Woman, an immersive women’s workshop that I recently attended and found incredibly moving and inspirational. Listen in as they offer insight into how to discover body love and ways to connect to your true essence.

Sheila Kelley is the founder of a movement called S Factor which is a sensual movement practice that unleashes the feminine mind, body, heart, and soul. Many women today are locked into their masculine energy in ways that show up in their physical movements, even if their other mannerisms and characteristics are strikingly feminine. This is especially visible in the hips and shoulders, which are rigidly locked in many women instead of being loose, flowing, and feminine. Today, we talk about unleashing the feminine body through movement, pole dancing, and more.

This kind of soulmate relationship and partnership can sound too good to be true, and Jacqualyn is charmingly relatable as she reveals that she and Andrew have had their share of difficulties. She then offers incredible insight and advice on how to move beyond negative interactions with your partner.
