L'Erin Alta is a spiritual teacher + mentor known for burning down the stale, fluffy, boring "self-help" formulas and helping women ignite true spiritual liberation. Her workshops, retreats and 1-on-1 intensives have been called, "transformation temples for unruly, soulful women".
She works with women whose lives have crossed a "shatter point," as she calls it — illness, bankruptcy, abuse, divorce, miscarriage — a moment when their world fell apart and they realized the money, the status, the degrees and "happily ever after" promises that they worked so hard for didn’t matter as much as they thought they did.
L'Erin is the guide that takes them deeper into their spiritual journey. She believes pain is a healing initiation and if honored, it will fortify you and bring you through the shadows into the light.
In this episode, which is the first one that L'Erin has done all year, she shares the honest story of what she did when her life fell apart toward the end of 2017. Through the story of what happened to her she also shares the intentional ways she has prioritized extreme self-care, recovery, and healing. We talk about the importance of truth in L'Erin's life and work, and why it's more important to her than ever to pay attention to and honor that which she knows to be true.
We talk about intuition vs fear, meditation, agency, sovereignty, and the power of giving yourself permission to be present with whatever is happening.
I often say that I wish people were more open and honest about their struggles in real time, and this is exactly what L'Erin showed up to do in this conversation. I'm so grateful to have had this discussion with her, and I hope you feel as comforted and inspired by it as I do.
