Show Notes

The six women discuss feedback they’ve received from episode one through five based on their discussions of “Women Who Run with the Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. They also call themselves out on times they were insensitive and speak about their privilege.  Between laughing at their own mothers’ responses to the podcast, debating suggestions of the male version of “Women Who Run with the Wolves”, diving deep into the self help industry and trying to answer whether we need to fix ourselves, they are honest about their views and their lives. They ultimately discover how important storytelling is in all environments.

Untamed -Episode 4

The women reflect on last episode’s discussion about tone policing and their reactions both during and after the conversation. Afterwards, diving into the stories and lessons they read in “Untamed” by Glennon Doyle, they debate listening to their inside truth versus asking for outside advice, whether those opinions come from love or fear, and if there is one roadmap that everyone can follow. Discussion Points: Upcoming contest for fans to win a waterproof Amazon Kindle Oasis Tone shaming/policing Apologizing and making mistakes Can behaviours, choices, feelings all be traced back to the simplicity of love and fear? The breaking of the parent-child role Following your truest path, not always the easiest, and trusting your own knowing ‘Me culture’ versus listening to your elders Be aware of the fuel behind the advice The problems with reducing the unit to just one person instead of the community Being secure in yourself versus being susceptible to outside influences Should we ask for many opinions, or not at all until we know our own opinion? Letting other people’s fear and issues into your bubble Can there be a roadmap for how to live your life? Does Glennon Doyle present herself as a guru?
