1. SE4:EP16 Time to Rise, Be Loud, Be Bold, Be Unapologetic Clarissa Kristjansson 34:32

My guest this week is Lesley Michaels equity warrior, speaker, entrepreneur, transformational coach and author of On The Shoulders Of Mighty Women. Throughout the years, Lesley has been a dedicated voice for bringing attention to the challenges, dehumanization, and legalized inequities delivered upon members of marginalized communities.

In our conversations we discuss:

  • How women struggle to hold up more than just their half of the sky.
  • How women have allowed themselves to be indoctrinated by the patriarchy and are walking around with internalized misogyny, pushing away from other women.
  • Why a highly competitive stance with other women is feeding the patriarchy
  • The importance of coming together conversing, communicating and supporting each other.
  • The power of educating each other instead of taking oppositional stances in Menopause.
  • Asking yourself ‘how are you going to use your privilege to enhance someone else’s life today? ‘
  • The power of stepping up to break down those silos and create our collective, stronger, cross-generational inclusive voice

Clarissa Kristjansson Independant Podcaster

At 62 Clarissa Kristjansson knows that menopause can be positive, transformational and an upgrade in our creativity. Clarissa is an internationally recognized menopause educator, third-age women's health coach, and certified mindfulness and medical qi gong practitioner.

A neuroscientist and former corporate high-flyer it was her own perimenopause experience that set her on a different path to empower women. And by cracking open the conversation about our beliefs and behaviour we can shift the collective mindset to seeing menopause not as the end but as an opportunity for reinvention and revitalization.

She is the host of the popular Thriving Thru Menopause podcast.
