We welcome award-winning author, podcaster, and certified Jungian analyst, Lisa Marchiano to Soul Sessions this week. Highlighting themes from her new book, The Vital Spark: Reclaim Your Outlaw Energies and Find Your Feminine Fire, we explore empowerment, authenticity, and the nuanced exploration of emotion from a Jungian perspective.

Join us as we engage in a rich dialogue with Lisa about the responsibility modern women face in their individuation journey, the societal shifts in gender roles, and the challenge of being guardians of emotional labor. Throughout the conversation, we’ll investigate how embracing our shadows—encompassing qualities from rage to desire—can inspire personal growth and empowerment. In this episode, we discuss:

  • Individuation as a path to empowerment
  • How to balance accepting responsibility + taking action
  • Where does empowerment come from?
