S4: E2 - Tapping into Birth, Sex + Death with Emma Cannon
In this week’s episode, I chat with Emma Cannon, a fertility and women’s health expert. Emma supports couples on their path to parenthood and bridges the gap between western medicine and complementary therapies.
In this conversation with Emma, we weave many themes that I know will be so powerful for you to hear. She takes us on her own journey of sitting with Ram Dass in the 90’s and how this opened up the path that she is still on today. We discuss the impact of childhood sexual trauma and how this was not fully healed until many years later during a powerful experience that I can’t wait for you to hear about. Emma is so generous with her knowledge about not only fertility and the cycle of life but also in giving us hope around the shadow and light in life and how working with both can lead to deep healing.
- We hear Emma’s thoughts on the journey of life including pre-birth, birth, sex and death
- Learning to find her gift was something she was taught at a young age by her Father
- Comparing yourself to others isn’t helpful at all, you can only be yourself
- There are links between our beliefs, trauma and fertility
- We have to find a way to create safety within ourselves
- Healing ancestral trauma and shame is vital for us to move forward
- As women, we are deeply impacted by patriarchal views
I hope you enjoy this conversation and take away so much from it. I could have kept talking to Emma for hours!
