The tension that seems to exist between the rational and the intuitive does not necessarily have to be a conflict.  If we can bring these two spheres into harmony and balance, we can draw forth a stronger and more complete understanding and approach to our lives!  In this episode of the show, we unpack the ideas of the mystic and the scientist, and how leaning too far one way can leave us scared and dogmatic.  From the many different systems and frameworks that we all have access to, to the inner wisdom and knowing that can be found through the right questions, there are so many paths to a fulfilling and self-actualized existence.  It is only when we adhere to external and ill-fitting boxes that we find ourselves in trouble, experiences that both of us have had, especially in our younger years!  In this world of dogmatic science and the still-dominant patriarchy, it is so important for inquisitive and strong-willed women to follow their hearts, and we hope this episode is a clear reminder of that.  So, to hear all about it and share in this ever-blossoming flower of realization, be sure to listen in today!
