In this episode…


Here are a few words that come to mind with today’s show: inspiration, empowerment, transformation! Get ready for a new perspective!

Today, I had the incredible opportunity to chat with the amazing Lyvonne Briggs! She is a spiritual teacher, revolutionary speaker, and holistic wellness educator. She is also the author of the captivating book, "Sensual Faith: The Art of Coming Home to Your Body," and the host of the Sensual Faith Podcast. Do yourself a favor and check those out immediately! The conversation you’re about to hear was all about embracing transitions and self-care for women over 40, and let me tell you, it was a game-changer!


Prioritizing Well-Being: Thriving Through Transitions as Fabulous Women Over 40

Lyvonne reminds us that transition is a constant part of life, and it's through these changes that we grow and thrive. And for us fabulous women over 40, it's even more important to prioritize our well-being. 

Lyvonne herself experienced a turning point at 40, where she questioned her desires and fearlessly embraced the transitions that led her to a fulfilling life. I could totally relate, having gone through my own transformative journey after a divorce. 

Self-discovery and newfound freedom is just around the corner…as soon as you’re willing to embrace the change with it!


The Art of Coming Home to Your Body: Reclaiming Autonomy and Celebrating Women's Power

Now, here's the real gem of our convo: coming home to your body. We are both believers in building a strong community and supporting women's health in every aspect - mind, body, and soul. Lyvonne shares her thoughts of how women, especially black women and women of color, are often denied autonomy and agency over their bodies. Lyvonne challenges this narrative and celebrates the power and divinity of women's bodies. It's time to reclaim self-love my friend!

And let's not forget about spirituality and sensuality. Lyvonne emphasizes the importance of embracing spirituality without toxic religious influences. Women have been demonized for their spiritual power for far too long, and it's time to reclaim our sacredness. 

We also talk about the patriarchy and the internalized oppression that some women may face. But lucky for us, Lyvonne shared three incredible ways for us to tap into our sensuality: through the sensory experience of cooking, mirror dancing to embrace our bodies and affirm ourselves, and yes, you heard it right, masturbation! It's a powerful tool for self-exploration, reclaiming agency, and experiencing pleasure. 

It is time to break free from society's limitations and embrace our sensuality!


Breaking the Stigma: Sharing Stories, Rejecting Shame, and Celebrating Women's Bodies

Lyvonne also touched on the stigma surrounding women's bodies, menstruation, and motherhood. It's time to share our stories and break free from shame. She explains how society's conditioning has kept these stories in the shadows for far too long. 

Whether you've had biological children or not, it doesn't define your worth as a woman. As someone who struggled with fertility myself, I found solace and love through adoption. 

As Lyvonne reminds us: there is no one-size-fits-all path to motherhood! It’s time to celebrate our bodies as they are and reject society's narrow definition of beauty and motherhood.


Sensual Faith: A Must-Read Guide to Self-Discovery, Body Acceptance, and Reclaiming Power

In conclusion, Lyvonne's book, "Sensual Faith: The Art of Coming Home to Your Body," is a must-read for every woman in our community. It's a guide to navigating transitions, embracing our bodies, and reclaiming our spirituality and sensuality. 

Let's continue this journey of self-discovery and self-love together. Get ready to learn new ways to embody your power!
