If you’re here reading this, it’s likely that you have, at some point in your life, felt the nudge of your soul calling you to explore deeper and ask the bigger questions.
This soul inquiry process often starts out gentle – like a small quiet whisper – but eventually it gets louder and more urgent.
What this can often lead to is a stripping away, crumbling or destruction of all that no longer serves us. Often we drop into a period of unknown mystery. A time when we are no longer the person we once were but who we are to become is yet to make itself known to us.
I like to think of these periods as stripping for the soul. A process of removing all the layers we have outgrown. These times can be wild, erotic and empowering or they can feel awkward, uncomfortable and very vulnerable.
This interview catches Laura Anne Page three years into a period of stripping for the soul or, what she refers to as, journeying into the soul underworld.
Intrinsically tied to Laura’s story is her former name Shakti Sunfire. A name which she used for over 10 years to promote her gifts as a hoop dancer, yoga instructor, movement educator, and mentor for women, amongst many other things.
This is the first time Laura has spoken publicly about the journey of returning to her birth name and what this has meant for her business, her intimate relationships and for her soul.
If you’re in a period of mystery, if you’re feeling called to strip away all the identities and labels you’ve placed on yourself, if you’re feeling lost and confused about where to head to next, this is the interview for you.
In this interview, Laura shares:
+ Her three-year journey with exploring the unknown mysteries of her soul and why letting go of the name Shakti Sunfire has been paramount in this exploration.
+ The resistance and fears that showed up when she felt the call to explore deeper, including issues within her relationships and discomfort in her career.
+ Why the story that has come before now – however this story may look for you – is sacred and deserves to be honoured.
+ Why being in the mystery of the unknown is maginalised in our society and why it’s important to honour these dark, unknown voids in our life, even when others around us might not understand.
+ Her personal inquiry process for tuning into the voice and wisdom of your soul.
+ Why she believes all of us have special soul gifts to offer the world.
