Stop Striving, start Flowing. We hear the word 'flow' a lot lately. But what does it really mean? And how do we move from a place of striving to a state of flow? Especially when we are being told constantly to 'push harder', 'get over ourselves' and 'hustle'. This short episode is food for thought around the whole subject.

In this episode I'm chatting with Dr Valerie Rein, whose new book Patriarchy Stress Disorder has raced to the best seller list. She has worked with hundreds of high-achieving women and discovered that they issues they all struggle with are not just personal (the 'what's wrong with me') - they're rooted in the ancestral and collective trauma experienced by women in the patriarchal world for millennia.

Her book is: Patriarchy Stress Disorder - the invisible inner barrier to women's happiness and fulfilment, by Valerie Rein, PHD
