How Patriarchal Stress Impacts Our Business
with Dr. Valerie Rein
When Dr. Rein experienced stroke-like symptoms to her face and arm, only to be told it was “just stress”, it awakened something inside her.
She had to ask herself some difficult questions because her stress had become such a natural state for her, a security blanket as she calls it, that by the time it landed her in the hospital she was living a typical day, completely unaware of her high-stress level.
She wondered what was going on and how many other women were carrying these silently extreme levels of stress? What was REALLY going on below the surface… the invisible stuff we can’t see?
That is when she had her lightbulb moment about inheriting thousands of years of female oppression and how it impacts our ability to have a fulfilling life and business.
In this episode, she is sharing how to recognize Patriarchy Stress Disorder (PSD) and insight on how to heal it.
