The Feminine Rhythm Podcast is Hosted by Lauren Sheehan and is a conversation about honoring the life cycles, rituals, and rites of passage of womanhood. We cover topics about motherhood, menstrual cycle, creativity, rites of passage, read you stories and mythologies that are written FOR the female body, and speak to wisdom keepers and elders on the path of unity and wholeness.

**STORYTELLING FOR THE FEMALE BODY SERIES**
The Garden of Ydhen (Pronounced ee-dhen) is the working title of a novel I’m writing about the life cycle and mystical experience of the female body.
IN THIS EPISODE
*I read aloud an excerpt from the story, which my writing sisters all said put them in a deep trance,
*and then share with you a little about my creative process in developing the character of the land in the piece
*and offer a distinction between writing that puts a woman IN her body vs writing that intellectually talks at a woman about her body and why I feel the first kind of writing mentioned is so needed for us right now.
*Why I gave myself permission to become a writer of mythology for the female body
*Why I take regular breaks from all external media in favor of writing my own media for myself
