Most women operate at half power, trying to assimilate into ways of working that don't support how we naturally operate and create, undervaluing ourselves and our work, and taking more responsibility than is ours to take on. We care about the world. We want to make things better. But the way we've learned to lead and work is based on models that do not support nor tap into our 'feminine' power and wisdom.
But what the heck is the 'feminine' and why do we need it? Can't we just all try to be better people, grow our careers, and talk about leadership without needing to gender modify it? The answer is NO.
If we desire to create a world in which there is pay equity, gender equity, connection instead of isolation, where we grow ourselves, our families and our work/business in ways that sustain and nourish us vs like some crazy Monsanto accelerated growth model, we have to LEARN what the feminine is... REVEAL the full range of our power... and then VALUE and APPLY a different way to work, live and lead.
There's much to say about Feminine Leadership and we are not going to cover it all today - I don't want to add to your overwhelm love! I want to give you the path out of it, which feminine leadership and wisdom offer us.
After studying tradition leadership for over two decades and realizing it didn't have what I needed as a woman or as a human who didn't want to perpetuate a domination and consumption model for business and living, I sought out 'the feminine' (even though I had no idea what that was at the time. Over the last decade I've applied this Wisdom to my own life and work and shared it with many more.
Today, is the start of on ongoing conversation here at Feminine Power Time, the first of our deep dives into Feminine Leadership, a way of living, working and creating I've devoted my life to teaching and living.
For today's session "Feminine Leadership: What Does it Look Like to Lead As a Woman?" we will dive into 5 foundational realms of Feminine Leadership, so we can open up to some deeper wisdom, new insights and expanded possibilities that and support us in being the change we wish to see, including:
When we lead naturally as a whole woman we embody both our masculine and feminine powers in ways that naturally lead us to creating realities that create more harmony, sustainability and prosperity.
We will end this Feminine Power Time with a short meditation that leads you to connect with HOW big a difference you are making -so you can stop pressuring yourself and start acknowledging yourself. And will help you take the pressure of taking on more responsibility than is yours... feminine leadership leads us to just do our part.

Couples who dream together thrive together. People who are clear and centered in their own dream create partnerships that support them to soar. Sadly, most of us have never been taught how to create such relationships. We are kinda clueless about what 'dreaming' together really is, and how to create the kinds of relationship where both people's dreams can be met.
It's so easy to get bogged down by the day to day reality that our relationships can become all about getting through our lives, taking care of the money, kids, house vs. have a shared dream that inspires each person and holds the center for how you make your life choices.
Or if you are single, and are not clear on your personal dream or you don't have an imprint of what a true strong partnership looks like, you can end up choosing a mate who isn't capable of supporting you to create the life your heart and soul desires.
Over the past 17 years, I've had the honor of knowing (and living with, working with and being in sacred partnership) with one of the wisest people I know when it comes to relationships and how people work and don't work within them... my soul partner, Noah Martin, and man who has helped many women, men and couples get clear on their dreams, strengthen their connection, change their roles and open to more love.
So I've invited Noah to join us for this Feminine Power Time with me Christine Arylo, Dream Partnerships: Creating a Relationship Where Both People Thrive. I like to invite Noah to join us every so often to share a man's point of view and truthfully straight up good practical wisdom on relationships.
We can't talk about Feminine Power and Feminine Leadership if we also don't talk about relationship, because our relationships have a huge impact on our ability to have the impact we desire, do our sacred work and be supported along the way. Here's what we dive into...
Dreams are the fuel that allows you to live your life in connection and joy, even when stuff gets hard.

How do we "BE" with what we are seeing in the world all around us - the anger, the greed, the disrespect, the separation, etc. etc.- without becoming consumed by it, sucked into it or feeling like we have to spiritually bypass it? How do you speak up, stand up and show up to be the agent of change, truth, compassion that you desire to be, when everything feels so overwhelming, compressed and out of control?
The yogis predicted we would come to this time of madness. Our role is to be able to stay present with what is happening in this world, be agents for change and elevation, not forces who add to the chaos, frenzy and fear.
How do you stay present with what's happening in the world without being overcome by it? Whether it's happening in politics, in power plays on your job or in relationships, or in your community or within yourself, we need super powers and wisdom for staying present with what is, staying human in the process, but not becoming part of the very things we wish to change.
In this Feminine Power Time, with Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor, MBA and Wisdom Teacher, dive in for:
Chaos loves to speed things up. But we lose our power when we become part of the sand storm. We embody our power when we stand still in the midst of it, see what is real, see the fear game being played. We gain an elevated perspective that empowers us to act in ways that can create powerful change.
This is the time to start slowing down, not speeding up. We need to step out of our daily rhythyms to hear the deeper wisdom within.
