{Podcast 029} Nadine Lee: spirituality, sexuality and connecting back to soul

Nadine Lee She Makes Magic

Nadine Lee has always had a deep connection to her spirituality and sexuality. At the age of 14, she had an intense and totally unexpected Kundalini awakening. At the time, Nadine thought she was losing her mind. With no one to turn to and no idea what was going on, she shut down her connection to spirit.

What followed was total abandonment of her soul path. Her life became filled with self-destructive habits –  partying, alcohol, drugs, casual sex and eating disorders.

Listen in as Nadine shares her journey from a disconnected marketing and advertising guru to connected tantra yoga teacher, sacred sexuality guide, energy healer and nutritionist.

{Podcast 025} Juliet Allen: becoming a sexually empowered woman

Juliet Allen She Makes Magic

If you’ve been following us for a while you’ll know, a couple of years back, I hit publish on a very vulnerable post about my sexuality. To this day, it is still the most vulnerable post I have ever shared.

Funny, it was about that same time that our community really started to grow and engage. And then, the stories rolled in. Emails, Facebook messages, even conversations with my closest friends. Women opening up to me and telling me that, at some point in their life, in one way or another, they had been through the same thing.

And I thought to myself: why the hell isn’t anybody talking about this?

Finally, I decided to do something about it.

Meet Juliet Allen. A straight-talking sexologist with a passion for empowering women to embrace their true sexual nature.

This interview is slightly different from the ones I’ve done before. Sure, we talk a little about Juliet’s journey from coffee barista to sexologist. But the juice is in Juliet’s sexual awakening.

Listen in as we take a deep dive into her sexual journey – from a teenager kissing her girlfriends in nightclubs, to the birth of her daughter, to falling in love with a woman, to her experience with homophobia, to coming out as bisexual. Juliet talks powerfully about what it means to be attracted to the same sex.

It’s inspiring to hear from a woman who is willing to bravely explore and follow her sexual desires, wherever they take her.

What I love about Juliet is her cheeky, fun and no-shame approach to all things sex. And why shouldn’t it be that way? We all came from sex. Most of us have sex at some point in our life.

To all the women who reached out to me with your stories of both sexual confusion and sexual awakening, thank you. I created this interview for you.

Sexuality, dark fears and great truths

Fear is just noise masquerading as truth

My mouse hovered tentatively over the send button. My heart thumped ferociously in my throat, my hands visibly shook and tears streamed down my face. I took a deep breath and pressed send.

With one tiny click, 30 years of lies began to unravel. There was no going back now.

For almost three decades I had been dishonest with my family and friends and, most importantly, with myself.

Up until just a few months ago, I lived a life where I enjoyed the company of men. Yet deep down my soul longed for something else.

If you prefer a label, you may want to call me gay or bi-sexual (or confused!). Perhaps I am all of these things, or none of them. Personally, I stumble over labels (but this is a post for another day).

This is my story, one of facing my darkest fear and owning my great truth. Continue Reading →
