Channeling Your Masculine And Feminine Creative Energy w/Melanie Joy EP 368

Melanie Joy is a writer, women's coach, sound healer, mother, and beautiful teacher. In her recent book, Descent to Wholeness, Melanie breathes a fiery breath of perspective into the stages of the archetypal story of a Woman's life through the journey of her own memoirs.  From external affairs in the realms of a patriarchal society to the internal journey back into the cave of her body.

In this episode, she introduces the Heroine's Journey - a process of growth and independence that every woman alive goes through and how it is different from a Hero’s journey. She broke different terms that have influenced the way leadership works like Patriarchy and Matriarchy, feminine energy and Masculine energy, etc. She also explained the term Mature Feminine Leadership by giving several examples.

After saying no to living in the masculine any longer, Melanie is brought back into her Feminine power as she shares her vulnerable truth through various healing modalities such as somatic body experiences and transformational plant medicines.


Melanie says “We're never supposed to be forever young. And if we try to remain forever young, we are preventing the wisdom that comes through the aging process. And so, by welcoming aging, we're welcoming wisdom back into our bodies.”

Lance Essihos

As an experienced veteran with adversity, Lance has faced some of life's most difficult challenges. Grinding his way through the hockey ranks to traveling the world as a bartender. Through his personal battle with drugs and alcohol for well over a decade, the tragic loss of his brother to suicide followed by the great loss of his father to cancer only a year later, Lance realized he had hit rock bottom. In the darkest of days, he made a promise to himself that he would create a new life, one that would make an impact and inspire the masses, leaving the world in a better place than he found it. Lance has made it his mission to facilitate the message of positive change through adversity and encourage people to see the light through the darkness of life's worst moments.
