Taking the Head Off the Defense Mechanisms that Hold Us Back – A Dance with Kali – Episode 22

Defense mechanisms block us from opening up to our fullest potential and our deepest truths. Β In this episode we explore Kali energy and we open to her sword of truth, a sword that can help us see past these mechanisms that often block our intuition, deny the our wild woman nature and stunt our growth.

It’s a powerful episode (how can it not be when we open to Kali?) πŸ™‚ It’s also a great ‘know thyself’ episode. Β Our hope is that it takes you deeper into your truth and unlocks even more of the brilliant wild woman that you are!

A few things we dive into:

  • 5 Different defense mechanisms and how to identify them within yourself
  • 3 practices for getting past defense mechanisms
  • Opening to Kali and her gifts in order to ‘cut the head off’ personal defense mechanisms
