On this International Women's day, the best gift
I would like to receive and give is Freedom.
And freedom to me is crafted out of awareness and skills.
To change what needs to be changed, reimagined, reinvented.
I believe that learning (and sometimes, consciously unlearning) these skills is a powerful tool for self liberation. And when we are free, we can set others free.

In the past few years, I encountered a tribe of wise women on my path.
.They showed me how I could alchemize their wisdom with my own life experience, to custom design a life I truly love.
I like to call this process rewilding.
These women are my muses, soul sisters, and shaped the way I now do my business and show up in my personal life.
They (we) are changing the world, one courageous truth at a time.
I was lucky enough to meet + work with some of them in person, too. For some, the connection has been through their books and words, but equally powerful.
I hope you enjoy this selection of gems that I crafted for you and fiercely integrated (with love, AND compassion, AND patience) in the past years.
This is my gift for you today.
My top 7 reads (or audiobooks listens during morning walks and runs) about womanhood, liberation + self compassion and - very important - play:
Women who run with the wolves by Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estés - to reconnect with your wilderness understanding the meaning of myths and archetypes.The Yin and Yang of self compassion by Dr Kristin Neff - to learn how to give yourself a loving pat on the back and also take action with love and courage. Cassandra speaks by Elizabeth Lesser - to explore myths and history on a new perspective: the feminine, unheard one.Belonging by Toko-Pa Turner - to remember yourself home, in the most poetic way. A gem to read and re-read.Hormonal Harmony by Susanne Haegele - to reconnect with your body, embracing her strength, fragilities and unique power in each season of life.Red Moon by Miranda Grey - to understand the beauty and power of menstrual cycle and how to live more in flow.
