Today's episode is with my friend and colleague, Danielle Savory.
Danielle started The Practice of Pleasure, a female focused company, because her wish is that every woman feel free and happy being exactly who she is and loving ALL that she is - that she can see her own beauty, allow the full range of her emotions, know how to give herself the kind of love and attention she gives others, and not be bullied by the inner-self-criticizing a-hole. Her mission is to help women find the courage and provide them with the guidance to do this.
Danielle believes that when we take a closer look at our sexuality and intimacy, battles and challenges from other parts of our lives also show up -- insecurities, resistances, compassion for ourselves and others, the ability to seek out pleasure and receive it, boundaries, focus, you name it -- all tucked into how we relate to our vagina and her accessories. Going after and communicating what you want, and making pleasure and joy a priority in your life is the most empowering gift you can give yourself, and it’s a much more fun and fulfilling way to live!
Every woman has the potential to experience extreme pleasure, wholeness, and happiness and Danielle helps women see this potential and realize it through classes, events, workshops, coaching, and sisterhood.
She is a certified Life Coach by Dr. Martha Beck, certified yoga teacher, and trained in meditation, mindful self-compassion and a trained mind-body coach. Her biology and neuroscience education complement these ancient and modern teachings and allow her to bridge the gap between science and the ‘woo-woo.’ Her approach is matter-of-fact, personable and humorous, sprinkled with a sh*t load of love.
I think you're going to love this episode as we dive into:
- Sexual pleasure and intimacy as self-empowerment
- Danielle's Kickstarter "Craft Your Coochie Kit"
- Her story for becoming a life coach that specializes in mindfulness, sex and pleasure
I hope you enjoy!
