Pia Orleane, Ph.D, author, lecturer and former practicing psychologist will discuss her new book - Sacred Retreat, wherein we delve into how honoring natural cycles can restore the balance on our planet in peril. In our discussion we'll chat about how the environmental problems are related to dishonoring the natural cycles and how ignoring natural cycles contribute to ill health, lack of connection and even war. Pia's research evaluated the spiritual treatment of women's cycles and she'll report on that. We'll refresh listeners about how women's cycles became taboo and shameful topics and how that's led to losing the value and power of women's cycles. Pia believes living in harmony with Nature can affect our personal relationships and she'll give us tips for achieving greater harmony and fulfillment with those in our social circles.
