Feminism, but connected. The Divine Feminist is a deep dive into feminism for today; the kind of movement that recognises the everyday struggles as symptoms rather than causes of our toxically unbalanced society. So how do we fix that? By reconnecting with ourselves and remembering that there is another way... a way to the sacred balance that represents the road to fulfilment for each of us, and paves the way to a more balanced and fulfilling world.

As we conclude our journey through the thirteen keys for self-reconnection and balance, Ceryn invites you to consider those ideas of Human and Soul, and what they really mean. All too often in these spiritually-focussed circles, we see our human selves being diminished and painted as less than the soulful side of us; but the truth is that both are …

This month's episode of the Divine Feminist is a special one, as Ceryn talks with Laura Bates about her work and experiences to date. Founder of The Everyday Sexism Project and author of eight books to date, Laura is involved with a number of programmes and campaigns that demand real change from those at the very top of our societies, and works in …

As we move onto the twelfth of our thirteen keys for self connection and sacred balance, Ceryn invites you to journey with the ideas of outcome and possibility. We live in a world that so often wants us to focus on outcomes; definitive outcomes that can be objectively glasses as "good" or "successful". And there are definitely times when such a cle…

As we move on to the eleventh of our thirteen keys for self connection and sacred balance, Ceryn invites you to journey with her as she faces one of the scariest topics of all: Death. But how would our relationship with that concept - and equally with the ideas of life, birth and rebirth - be if we had been raised in a world that focussed more on t…

As we continue our journey through the thirteen keys to sacred balance and self re-connection, we come back to that very idea of connection and, in particular, what that means when it comes to ourselves. We are all multi-faceted beings; different voices within us bringing their thoughts, hopes and fears to the table, while the fact that we exhibit …

As we continue our journey through the thirteen keys for sacred balance and self-reconnection, Ceryn invites you to consider the idea of boundaries - what they are and how we set them. Boundaries are something we hear a lot about in today's world, and even more so as we walk this path of Divine Feminism and realise that, for all of patriarchy's wor…

It sounds like a contradiction doesn't it? Yet as we journey with allowing, the eighth key to self-reconnection and sacred balance, that's exactly where we find ourselves. We live in a world of action, shoulds and to-do lists; one that will tell us that doing is the only way to be. But of course we know that's not the case, that the true sense of b…

When it comes to these thirteen keys to self-connection and alignment, pleasure is perhaps the one that has had the most myths built around it by patriarchy. Yet to reclaim pleasure on our own terms is to reclaim our power, and so much more besides. So what does that involve? And how do we work out what the word even means for us? Join Ceryn to div…

As we continue to work through the thirteen keys to self-connection and sacred balance, we come to key six, responsibility. And with it, we remember the words of Spiderman's Uncle Ben: "with true power comes true responsibility." Because that's precisely where responsibility becomes so important; at a time that increasingly asks and invites us to s…

As we journey together through the thirteen keys to self re-connection and sacred balance, Ceryn invites you to think about your own experiences with faith over the past few weeks, and shares insight into her journey with this. After all, working with these keys is not as simple as a discussion, or some time spent pondering while listening to a pod…
  continue reading
 
Faith has become such a burdensome and often empty world in our societies today, but I truly believe it's one of the most important qualities we can cultivate. Not necessarily in a God, Goddess or anything else outside of ourselves - although what you choose to believe in is entirely up to you, but faith in yourself and in the world around us. Afte…

Stepping outside of the usual rhythm of The Divine Feminist podcast to share an update, Ceryn invites you to come back to yourself and reminds us all of the power of pausing to connect. As we work together to move our world into a place of greater alignment, never has it been move important to bring ourselves into that place too. But what does it m…

The cult of individualism is not working for us - as individuals or societies. Yet the idea that we are all exactly the same is dismissive, disrespectful and dangerous. Humanity faces a time of great peril, one that we must work through together if we have any chance of surviving. But what does that mean? Join Ceryn as she talks about the power in …
  continue reading
 
We live in a world of such division, where we are continually encouraged to focus on the differences between us and how those separate us from one another. But though that focus has led us and our societies deep into a place of division, that is not to say that our differences should be ignored, forgotten, or glossed over. After all, it is our diff…

Following our journey with the subject of knowledge - both inner and outer - Ceryn discusses the synergy that can be found when we transcend those binaries and instead consider the idea of truth. But truth itself may not be as simple as we have for so long been told, so join Ceryn on a discussion of that subject together with questions about what t…

We live in a world which sees us constantly bombarded by information. And let's never forget the brilliance of that; the opportunities it provides for us to learn, particularly for and from those who may once have been excluded from mainstream sources of education or training. But there are downsides too: the ways in which that barrage of informati…

Following our recent discussion on the much-talked-about inner between love and fear, The Divine Feminist asks you to consider what happens when we transcend that binary and honour the full spectrum of both our love and our fear - as well as everything that lies between. The result? We reach a place of expansion. Empowered expansion which is fully …
  continue reading
 
Love and Fear. We're often told that this is the binary through which we choose to live our lives. Follow the path of fear and you'll find yourself in a place of joy, comfort and beauty. But allow the voice of fear to guide you and you will only ever star stuck, restricted and frustrated. But what if the flow between these two voices within us - an…

As we continue our deep dive into the topics covered in The Divine Feminist book, Ceryn invites you to consider the ideas of sacred balance and synergy, and how these affect your own life and the wider world. Together we talk about the power of breaking out of the dualistic boxes that have, for so long, been imposed upon us and about the power that…

As we head into this time of year that is often busy and stressful for so many of us, this Divine Feminist mini-episode invites you to connect back into yourself and remember what is truly important to you. Sharing more about Yule and the energies that underpin this time of year, Ceryn invites you to take a short break from the outside world and in…

When it comes to the dualities we've been told to recognise in our world, none are more vibrant - or at times more visible - than that of the Sun and the Moon. Which is why when practicing witch Ceryn was asked to put labels to the two energies being described in The Divine Feminist, they seemed like the perfect words to use. But what if that separ…

Our world is out of balance. So far out of balance that we've almost forgotten there was ever an alternative. If you're a regular listener of The Divine Feminist then that's a line you know already, and one you've undoubtedly heard me say before. But as we step into a new chapter of this podcast, and The Divine Feminist story, let's recap on where …
  continue reading
 
Having talked at length about the deaths that we experience as we move through life, and spent time sitting in the limbo that represents the place between, it's time that we turned our attention to what lies beyond that limbo: To the place of re-birth. We talk a lot about the pain of birth, and just as much about the joy that comes afterwards. But …

Limbo. It's something so few of us humans are comfortable with, yet something we experience regularly in ways both big and small. But as we move through our own period of limbo - outwardly in the world, energetically as the veils thin, and here on the Divine Feminist too - it's something we are increasingly asked to get familiar with. Join Ceryn to…

Death is both the greatest taboo and one of the most common fears within our human lives and societies. Yet it is also one of the greatest certainties any of us ever face. But to ignore or fear death is to do ourselves a disservice because it is to run not only from the end of our physical lives, but also from the transitions that mark so many of t…

We've talked a lot over recent weeks about the outside factors we must overcome as we take that journey from restriction to liberation. But what about the inside factors that keep us feeling small and stuck? In this week's episode of the Divine Feminist, Ceryn invites into the idea of pattern breaking. Combining her experience as a therapist togeth…

It's so easy to think that this journey from restriction to expansion is a simple, linear path. But in reality that's rarely the case. We have all experienced our fair share of frustrations, disappointments and unexpected outcomes along the way, and will undoubtedly experience more on the road ahead of us. But so often, finding ourselves in those p…

Having broken free of our restrictions and moved into a place of our own expansion, this week's episode of the Divine Feminist asks us all to consider what comes next? Or, more specifically, what could come next? After all, when it comes to expanding our lives further and further, one thing that is often likely to rear its head for us is the simple…
  continue reading
 
What would it mean to take up proudly and unapologetically space? That's something we're so often deterred from; from the childhood conditioning that tells us to stay quiet; to the societal rules that remind us to look, think and behave a certain way and convince us that we should simply be grateful for the space we are offered. It can lead us to b…
  continue reading
 
Fresh from our deep dive into the subject of restriction, The Divine Feminist moves to focus on where we find ourselves outside of those walls, and invites you to consider what the idea of expansion means to you. After years, generations and lifetimes of being told to stay small, that concept can feel challenging at best and completely alien at wor…
  continue reading
 
Continuing the theme of restriction from our last episode, Ceryn invites you to consider what it takes to break through (/ fly over/ escape from) those walls that have for so long been placed around us... Not to consider what we may find when we do. The decision to step outside of the known and carve a path of our own can be a terrifying one, even …
  continue reading
 
What if the world was always meant to be more than we've been told? More than that, what if each and every one of us was always able to be more than we've been told? Our societies are often all-too-keen to give us the blueprint of how we could be, of what is possible for us if only we buy and achieve the "right" things, act and look the "right" way…

In this first episode of Cancer season, we reflect upon one of the qualities of water, specifically its ability to show our reflection in its fullness. Within this episode, Ceryn invites you to reflect upon yourself, considering who you are and how you are in the world. Together we will then sort through the stories, burdens and beliefs we may carr…

As we venture into Gemini season, it is time to talk about all things air. And with Ceryn having finally completed the manuscript of the Divine Feminist book, it seems the perfect time to talk about the subject of using your voices. No, this isn't a "how to write a book" episode, nor is it a "you should start a podcast and here is how", but instead…

As we continue to move through the Earth energies of Taurus season Ceryn jumps straight into this week's episode and invites you to come back to nature by getting Earthed and connecting with the planet. Take a deep dive on the subject of why and how our connection to Earth and the building blocks of nature is so important - and so perfectly natural…
  continue reading
 
As we move into the Earth energies of Taurus season, Ceryn invites you to journey with her around the idea of beauty. That word in itself may trigger something in you around a concept that has for so long been weaponised against us and used to play us off against one another. And certainly to even talk about the idea of beauty we have to dive into …
  continue reading
 
As we continue our Aries season journey with the qualities and concepts associated with fire, Ceryn invites you to consider the power of your own creativity. So often we're told that creativity is a label which references only a limited number of activities, all associated with beauty and art, all of which are considered a "waste of time" unless we…
  continue reading
 
As we navigate our way through Aries season, when better to connect with the elemental energy of fire and with one of the emotions most closely associated with fire: Rage. Rage is and can be a powerful force, and maybe that's why our world is so keen to keep it under wraps, encouraging us to feel scared or ashamed of our own anger. Yet journeying t…

Trigger warning: The introduction to today's episode contains mention of recent news around Meghan Markle and Sarah Everard, including a content trigger warning for racism, suicide and violence against women. Fresh from a journey into the idea of choice and expectation, Ceryn invites us to dive into a discussion of our our legacies within this life…
  continue reading
 
TRIGGER WARNING: Within this episode is a brief mention of abortion, which is spoken about for approximately two minutes at around the 36 minute mark. The world we live in likes to set us very clear expectations. Wherever we are and whatever roles we do or don't take on, you can guarantee we'll be given - subtly or otherwise - a checklist of what i…

Putting boundaries on our time and energy is one of the most important things we can do to care for and respect ourselves. But in a world that so regularly tells us we should be caregivers whose worth is judged by their productivity and by how exhausted they are at the end of a week, the whole subject can be tough. From stepping back from the const…

Once something heard only in the most spiritual of conversations, those from all walks of life are increasingly realising the importance of grounding themselves and their energies. In a world so full of noise and mistruth, it's never been easier for us to be distracted, caught up in anxiety or thrown off course, making it more important than ever t…

Happy New Year from the Divine Feminist! As we move into a new year, not to mention a new Aquarian age, Ceryn discusses the importance of pausing to re-connect and consider the intentions that will help us to move forward. She then discusses the idea of self-reconnection; reconnecting with your whole self over and above the boxes this world of ours…

After a little break, the Divine Feminist is back for a whole new chapter! And as we approach the end of the calendar year and the Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn, when better to talk about the endings and beginnings that we encounter along our journeys. Pondering those subjects leads Ceryn to talk about her own experience of beginning…

What does the word power conjure up for you? For so many of us it's something that the chosen few have access to; the prize offered to those who won the lottery of privilege or checked off the qualities on a list that immediately gives them permission to control others around them. But who says that's the case? And what if that were to change? From…

The world likes to tell us our fears are bad. It likes to tell us they're unnecessary and evil and more than likely need to be vanquished like some sort of beasts that are actively working to keep us from our full potential. But what if that's not the case? Lately I've come to believe that our fears have been given a pretty bad rap; that in fact ma…

At the start of each episode I ask "how are you? How are you really?" This week with my hand on my own heart the answer came through plain and simple: "Exhausted." I'd like to tell you I listened first time around, but as you'll hear, that wasn't quite the case. Let's talk about why that is; about why so many of us have a problem with stopping, pau…

It may be the only place we can truly call home for the whole of our stay here on Earth, but how many of us feel completely connected to our bodies? The societies we live in are so keen to disconnect us from those bodies, to encourage hatred of them and division because of them that you could be forgiven for forgetting how it felt to feel truly at …
  continue reading
 
Do you trust yourself? Every part of yourself? We live in a society that's all too keen to detatch us from the wisdom within us, and in doing so to leave us thoroughly distrusting from ourselves. But that's a dangerous place to be. Not only because we find it ever more challenging to hear and listen to what's truly right for us, but also because it…

We humans are ever-moving, ever-changing beings; something we all embrace more of as we adopt the more cyclical, feminine approach to life. But how do we mark the phases that comprise those changes? Looking specifically at the feminine archetypes that each woman is said to embody throughout her life, this episode talks about the challenges that occ…
