Wild Feminine, Tami Lynn Kent
Tami Lynn Kent lives in Portland and started as a physical therapist that has created a technique call Holistic Pelvic Care that is practiced today by many different practitioners. It is a type of myofascial release and works to reconnect us to our sacred center.
I am listening to her audio book on the Libby App (free with a Library Card). It is filling me with a new interpretation of mind, body and spirit. We, as a culture, are still learning about the female body in the medical establishment. Thankful women like Tami are in tune enough to do her work that she is passionate about, while still listening to what is being needed. She found a need and then lead the solution.
In a time that our bodies do not only belong to us. We have to fight for it. Tami found that the pelvic floor stored sexual trauma that can happen throughout a woman’s life. These instances inhibit the ability to feel joy and the physical harm can turn into symptoms like incontinence years later.
Tami wants to take the shame out of our experiences and embrace the power of our bodies which also connects us to our spirit. For so many women we have sexual guilt and fall into that role for a lifetime. These feelings, if not addressed, can create unhealthy relationships with self and others.
Some of us are connected to the power of our sexual being and had the ability to create the lives we want and what we want to see. This comes from being in the flow of the natural elements. Our bodies change with the moon and we cannot control it. The earth is fertile ground that is inherently abundant just as our ovaries drop eggs every month ready to grow as many babies as we want.
It is time for our world to recognize the female body as exceptional. We have powerful insights that functional differently than that of a mans. This is amplified if we as a community can recognize this aspect as necessary to a healthy balanced world. This can come from our awareness of the out of balance patterns we hold. Embracing the wild feminine is how to find our true selves that exist outside of societal norms.
I am so grateful Tami went out on a limb to make sure we can understand how our root is a resource for healing and put her best vulnerable self forward to show us something that we may have been hiding from. .
