Sherry & Theresa travel from last episode’s conversation about separating from feminine energy into identifying with male energy and coming into balance with both. They listed masculine qualities and talked about how they show up in different circumstances.
This conversation would not be complete without mentioning notable women in history and female superheroes who reveal, to varying degrees, how powerful these two energies can be when understood & well-balanced.
Since the conversations are centered on feminine & masculine energies, it brings up other models of duality. Below are different ways of expressing the nature of what it is to live in a dichotomous world. They are deliberately left unlinked & undefined so you can follow the breadcrumbs under your own direction.
Concepts covered that may have inspired curiosity to pursue deeper exploration, study & understanding:
- Shiva & Shakti
- Sthira & Sukha
- Ida & Pingala
- Yin & Yang
- Purusha & Prakriti
If these dual energies intrigue you, there is a ton of information on the Web. Go play!
