Cultures with No Rape: Exploring Commonalities Among Matriarchal Societies

Season #7

Watch this episode HERE

Matriarchy is an inspiring and critical topic that is incredibly important to me and all I do.   

So, today on the show, we’re going to talk about it! Dr. Jessica Spring Weappa has a PHD in matriarchal studies, presented at the first Matriarch Rising Festival, and is my guest today on the podcast to blow all our minds!  Imagine a society where mothers are centered, where the highest currency is a mother’s love; a culture with no rape, no domestic violence, no fear of death, where relationships aren’t based in top down hierarchy.  

This is matriarchy.   

Jessica touches on gifting economies, nature as nourishment, and the spiritual commonalities within matriarchal societies across the planet. She has devoted her life to studying these concepts and finding ways we can rewild.  

We must do deep work and deprogramming to break the spell of patriarchy and find comfort, rather than fear, in centering women and mothers.  

If you want to dip a toe in, or dive headfirst, come to my women only life changing gathering, Matriarch Rising Festival. It will change your life, it will blast your heart open, and you will return home renewed and full of deep aliveness.   

Go to and grab your ticket; I’ll see you in June!
