Women What Whistle

This podcast is about not falling in line or fading away. Stories of bravery, accounts of resilience and even tales of sheer bloody-mindedness. It’s about finding our voice, and sometimes our brave, through the stories of other women who’ve had to find theirs.

We all respond differently at a time of crisis and this is where we really find out the stuff we are made of. As TS Elliot said, “If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”

I am joined by author and speaker Cathy Madavan in this episode to talk about resilience and adaptability when life gets tough, the timing of her book Irrepressible couldn’t have been more perfect!

We talk about flexibility, the importance of connection, having courage and other ways to manage this Coronavirus lockdown.

Brene Brown says “Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.” And as a generation that has felt so in control for so many years, we have got away lightly with the need for courage – now really is the time for us to discover what matters, who we are and perhaps discover a whole new life through the process.

You can find more about Cathy Madavan on her website and you can order her book "Irrepressible - 12 Principles for a Courageous, Resillient and Fulfilling Life" here on Amazon

The other thing I mentioned was Psalms and Stretches, some really uplifting yoga style classes that you might like to check out.
