“Just because we have power doesn’t mean we are taking it away from anyone else.”

- Melanie Klein

 Melanie leads us on a journey of empowerment, growth, curiosity and joy in this episode. We explore masculine and feminine energies, sexism and the patriarchy. Lean in, my friends. There’s wisdom here.  

“I’m all about righteous rage – huge fan of that. But often there comes a point where it needs to transmute to something else or it has to be very carefully channeled so it doesn’t burn our fingers.”

- Melanie Klein 

“There is plenty of space for everyone to have their own growth process, their own evolution process. And I think its all great as long as we are conscious of it and we own the choices that we’re making.”

-  Melanie Klein
