Hello friends of the plant and yoga world. Let´s talk about my June and July, mental strength and physical weakness. How were your last 2 months? Mine have been squishyy :). I don’t know how I come up with that word now, somehow I feel that right now. I would like to tell you about my June and July, focusing on physical weakness and mental strength.
My absolute highlight of June was my Montenegro retreat. I would like to share some personal thoughts that are giving me a lot of strength right now.
You can also experience my highlights and low-lights in a slightly different and more detailed way on Youtube.

June / July – What I am working on right now – Physical Weakness, Mental Strength
For 7 days we were invited to Montenegro for a women’s retreat. I didn’t know what to expect and so I went to Montengro completely unprepared and with no expectations. Honestly, I didn’t even know it was a women’s retreat. My friends told me it was great and I just went with it :). I am soo glad for that too.
The space that was created there felt so free of expectations and judgments that we all experienced an incredibly beautiful freedom together.
We did some workshops “to explore our wild feminine” got wonderful food and enjoyed ourselves. I haven’t taken a vacation in a long time and felt so much fall off of me. Right now my health and my multiple exostoses are bothering me a lot, which is why quiet time is everything for me. Mentally it is especially difficult for me that I can’t dance properly right now, and that for over 6 months. Unfortunately, I catch myself again and again thinking: oh, but that used to work…. I would also like to be there now… and then I am in a small downward spiral. That’s why my
Biggest Take-Out in June / July:
I don’t want to compare myself to myself on a physical level anymore.
I want to use my physical weakness for my mental strength.
I don’t want a further, faster and better, but an, ok let’s see but everything is good as it is.
June / July – What I have learned – pain during sexual intercourse is curable
When I hear how many women have pain during sexual intercourse, think there is something wrong with them and suffer tremendously mentally under societal pressure, it makes me feel very different. I was/am also part of it. When I learned about vulvodynia last year, it was like a shadow from my eyes. It all made sense. The pain, the not wanting…
Konstantin Wagner, MD, and I talk about vulvodynia in the new podcast episode @consciousgangster. In a nutshell: the chronic pain in the area of a woman’s external sexual organ for which no identifiable causes can be found. Unfortunately, the topic is still very unknown – but is getting more and more attention.
The good news: vulvodynia is curable. We talk about the causes, measures and therapies for affected women. If you haven’t listened to the podcast episode yet, I’d love for you to listen in and share it with women you think are also suffering.
A few messages from those affected. Email me if you have a story to share as well:
June / July – What I listened to – Radical awakening.
Just started the audio, but I like it already very much. Unfortunately, because I’m still too much at the beginning, I can’t give you a comprehensive and sufficient report yet. How I find it in the end and my complete feedback you can read in my post for the month of August. Vllt has the one or the other desire to read or listen to it until then. Together it makes even more fun 🙂 Glad to hear how you found it.
Those were my highlights and lowlights from the last two months June and July – if you are in the same situation as me, use your physical weakness and build up a mental strength. Find out more in my new YouTube video.
Have a great month of August!
