EP23: Ronna Detrick On Bringing Back Women's Stories And Sacred Writing
I am excited, excited, excited because this weeks episode is about a topic I have been researching for a couple of years now and I am over the moon to have an expert on the show who can talk to us about it: Women's stories!
Growing up in Germany, I was fascinated by the fact that most of the history I was taught in school started with the beginning of Christianity and hardly ever included any stories about women! Over the course of many years, I read sacred texts, myths and channeled writings, which gave me a fuller understanding of our collective history and I also received glimpses of how women's stories were misinterpreted, distorted or simply lost.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Ronna Detrick, who is passionate about bringing women's stories back into the conversation, telling them in a new way and also helping women powerfully tell their own stories!
Recording this episode was a lot of fun, I learned a lot from Ronna and especially her take on Eve's story of the Bible was eye opening for me. Listen to the episode and then let me know what you think!
Ronna Detrick reconnects us with the sacred that exists all around us and especially within. She is a writer, a speaker, and a coach/Spiritual Director. She has been blogging for more than ten years, offering online products and courses for eight, and having rich, sacred, and provocative conversations longer than both of these combined.
She has done a TEDx talk on Eve, creates and offers free weekly NotesFromHer, has an App called Sacred Muse, and offers SacredReadings, sort-of like Tarot, but with the ancient, sacred stories of women she so loves. She has most recently created a new offering called acredWritin for writers, journalers, everyone!
In the midst of all this, she drinks too much coffee, toasts “being enough” with champagne on Fridays, and is beyond proud to be the mom of the two most amazing daughters in the entire world.
In this episode, Ronna shares:
1. How she found her passion for feminine storytelling and built a business around it,
2. About accessing your deeper feminine wisdom through sacred writing,
3. And how to heal feelings of being unheard, silenced and creatively repressed!
