About today’s show: Today Odelle and I discussed: Feminine Exploring fear How our cycles play into everything Do we need certifications to share what we know? Relationship with your period Community Women This was a super chatty conversation and so much fun! Odelle, a 27 yr old woman in this human life, and an unknown soul age! Desiring deep connection and being her truest self from as early as she can remember, makes her feel ancient. Over the years, she has consistently dropped away and welcomed in things that aligned more fully, yet this year has been a continuous flow of huge transformations. Slowing down. Listening. Reconnecting. More. The pull towards Women and the Feminine became so strong, that she released most of her "commitments", running The Charge Movement gym for adults and kids (grateful for her amazing partner Keagan to hold down the fort), and teaching yoga in groups and privately with kids and adults. She kept only what felt FULLY ALIGNED. Now, while facilitating her second 10 week women's program, she’s received the call to ignite the energy and messages more into the community in other ways.
