Fierce Grace. If you asked me to describe embodied Feminine Power in two words i would say "Fierce Grace." When we are truly rooted in our unique expression of fierce grace we have access to our full power, presence, purpose and wisdom.
Which is why I'm finally, after two years of dreaming about it, starting this series of Fierce Grace Talks now for us. These will take place throughout the year, inviting you into a conversation with me and a being who I have witnessed embodying fierce grace in the devotion to their sacred work and in the presence publicly and privately.
Since we just literally sent my fourth book off to the printer this week, I was inspired for us to dive into how we can share our words and writing with the world.
Whether you are a writer, or want to be, or you want to write a book, or a blog, or just show up more powerfully in your authentic presence in your communications -- or just start writing for JOIY because you have something to say or you just want to! COME to this conversation.
I invited Kristine Carlson, NY Times Best Selling Author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Women, founder of the Book Doula incubator and community, and a woman who has been like a big sister to me in my writing and book career to join us for Fierce Grace Talk #1: Sharing Your Words & Writing with the World"
It seems like the perfect time to pull the veil back and have a heart to heart about what writing a book is like ... how it catalyzes your personal growth ... and what support and structure is really needed. And HOW to just get started.
And to also explore at this time when so many voices are speaking out there -- how do YOU want to show up, speak up and share ? In a way that matters to you? Feels good to you? And is adding to the world you desire to create for yourself and others? This is the power of Fierce Grace.
Take us with you for a walk.. pour some tea and settle in... take us out in the sun to do some earthing, heck pour a bath or snuggle up in bed ... it's a heart to heart ... supporting us each to share our words and writing in the world in ways that light YOU up and light up those you touch.
Wherever this finds you... the words you share and the presence you share them through - in your voice, your energy, your purpose - matters. Nothing is too small, we start where we are.
You matter. Believe it.

One of our most powerful sources of courage, clarity and wisdom comes from listening to the stories and experience and insight of women who have walked the path before us ... comes from asking inquiries that seek to take us deeper into the heart and expand us into new possibility. Our power as women comes in being in heartfull honest no b.s. conversation with each other, where there is exchange, sisterhood and truth. The Fierce Grace talks are meant to be that for us here at Feminine Power Time.
I've wanted to do these for awhile now ... and while ones to come will likely have women talking live...I've now had the honor of being in conversation with Gloria Steinem twice. Once seven years ago 1:1 at a bistro in San Fran, and last night in a room of 2000 in Seattle. Both times she delivered wisdom bytes which have opened up awareness and given me confirmation of what we need as women, as humans, to stay centered, keep the hope, stand for peace and love and be agents of elevation and connection.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time #108: Fierce Grace Talk: What Ive Learned from Gloria Steinem, I synthesized three potent pieces of wisdom, 'wisdom bytes', for you and I to chew on and apply to our lives now. Coupled with some of my own stories and an ending meditation to take this all within yourself. And inquiries to make this practical now to meet the intensity of the world in your own place of fierce grace.
See you there.
Here's a picture of Gloria and I in 2012 when she gave me the first piece of wisdom that opened me up to create the body of work that will be in Overwhelmed and Over It!

* Our power as people comes from being linked
* Gather yourselves
* Imagine your future self walking the path ahead of you. Let her lead you.
