BIG in Another Way

I was on the radio on Monday! And it corroborates the BIGNESS I’m feeling induced by the art class I’ve been chronicling of late.

I’m so pleased. Dr. Jeff Leinaweaver interviewed me on his new radio show  Gaialogue Radio,  hosted by Transformational Talk Radio. Here’s the link to Dr. Jeff’s page there.

If you scroll down you’ll find buttons for playing the show or downloading it. Soon, maybe I’ll figure out how to embed the talk here but I’m not sure if that’s even possible. We called the interview: Stories from an Urban Wild Woman.

That’s me! I’m reposting an illustration of me walking in the shoes of  both/and.


You can read the prior post about that here.

( Please forgive the appearance of these links. My link button has not yet been repaired. I think they are working on it though.)

In the first two segments of the radio interview, Dr. Jeff encourages me to share the pivotal points in my growing up when I purposely boxed myself into living a “half-life” in order to find acceptance by the civilized, intellectual, cultural norms of the time. In the 1940’s and ‘50’s, I didn’t yet have the guts to reveal my deeper self. In fact, though I knew I was burying aspects of me, I may not have known what those aspects even were. But then I move to Montana in 1980 and everything changes, a major mask falls off and then another and another and voila, in 1992, during two months of solitude, I reclaim most of the parts I had jettisoned early on. I imagine my life story is similar for many, especially women and especially those born prior to women’s lib. I’d sure love to hear some of your stories of coming alive.

      It means so much to me that you have read this post about my own embodiment of the ALL. You, too, know this and we can enrich each other’s presence in the world, for the world. It’s a form of mid-wifing, don’t you think, which includes both nursing and psyche support. ahhhhh yes. I am so inspired by “meeting” you.
