Lora De'Vore: Prostituted for the first time at the age of nine, suffered unspeakable treatment from those who should have protected her, incarcerated in a mental hospital, attempted suicide..
1:06:09Lora DeVore is an incredible role model for grief and rebirth. She is an author, a therapist, an educator, and a catalyst for transformational change for both health care individuals & institutions. Her wisdom comes from the inside out, from facing the darkest aspects of human experience and mining the dark for the treasures that can be found. Born into poverty and violence, Lora was prostituted at the age of nine and she suffered unspeakable treatment from those who should have protected her. The impact of this early trauma led to her institutionalization soon after she started college, and an incarceration she would not have survived but for a courageous nurse, who fought for her release. Fifty years later, Lora has had a long career as a successful mental health professional, she is recognized as a leading educator, and she is also a sought-after public speaker. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/griefandrebirth/support
Peruquois (Peru Qua): Hear her stunning story, learn about her mesmerizing voice, and garner powerful wisdom from a worldwide icon and spiritual superstar who is a profound healer of women!
1:41:47Composer and lyricist Peruquois is a remarkable worldwide icon and a profound healer of women who has been touring the globe since 1997, and her life has been filled with fascinating and transformative experiences of grief to healing and rebirth. Her father drowned in a fishing accident when she was three, and her motto became “Love and live now as the future may never come.” Another transformative experience occurred when she was 11, when both of her legs were cut above her kneecaps and then re-attached in a botched surgery designed to cure a genetic hip rotation. At 18, Peruquois honored her dreams to become a jazz vocalist and by 23 she was a bright star on the Australian jazz scene but felt somehow unfulfilled and through a profound transcendental experience, she found intuitive singing which spurred people to call her “the voice of Mother Earth.” She later spent 11 years as an apprentice and one of 7 wives to a Native American Medicine Man in the mountain deserts of New Mexico, where she received a vision that revealed that her healing voice and profound wisdom would one day inspire millions of people to fall back into love and return to harmony and balance. And years after that, she moved to New Zealand and committed to a new partner who was an awakened tantric master, and she became inspired to create a new set of practices for women to open to their sensual nature. And of course, there is more! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/griefandrebirth/support
