Processing Trauma and Reframing Pleasure with Alexandra Jamieson

I was honored to have the remarkable creator and coach Alex Jamieson on the podcast. She has so many a-ha moments to offer in the vein of craving, sexuality, health, leadership, and success for women. I love her insights on pleasure and play and know you will leave this conversation with many new tools for healing your trauma and leaning into the things that make you feel good (and allowing yourself to feel angry too).

  • how Patriarchy Stress Disorder has affected her clients, and how it has showed up for her and the women in her family

  • how engrained beliefs from patriarchy show up even in the most successful women

  • how to reach our empowerment and authenticity by digging deeper (instead of simply reaching higher) and sorting through our trauma

  • how protective mechanisms from patriarchy rob us of certain kinds of joy

  • the connection between sexuality, food cravings and addictions, and the trauma that is stored in our bodies

  • the importance of processing trauma where it is held in the body, not just working through it with our minds, and tips for doing so

  • the collective shift happening now, and steps empaths can take to protect themselves and find equanimity

  • reframing pleasure and play as our divine right, and the importance of touch and connection

  • how anger and boundaries are related, and how we can look at both differently than what patriarchy has taught us about them

  • how men are affected by patriarchal conditioning
