Who are my favorite female teachers?
I recently wrote about not having to agree to learn.
A female friend of mine pointed out an interesting point:
“Saw your latest post - guess you can't compare yourself to a female figure. Sorry, that stood out.”
I reflected on this, and in my original draft, I had Ayahuasca listed as a teacher, but she’s right, in my recent rabbit hole of exploring history, the figures I was looking at were almost all men. I suppose it is an implicit bias to seek for a role model or cautionary tale that relates directly to me. Regardless, it is an interesting area of exploration.
My favorite female Internet teachers tend to be scientists such as Judith Curry and Sabine Hossenfelder, and Rhonda Patrick. And I tend not to disagree with them. Most female teachers in my life have also been much more personal. Close friends and family.
After that message from my friend, I decided to seek some teachers for the feminine perspective. Teal Swan and Apollonia Ponti have resonated to understand energetic relationships and feminine energies. There are a lot of men out there giving bad advice about women… It’s probably better to go straight to the feminine source.
There are also female figures out there that are very polarizing. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for example. I think there’s an entire post there that feels like a giant booby trap, but I think it’s an important conversation. What can we learn from her message?
“We are all students. We are all teachers.”
Thank you, my friend, who pointed that out, you’re one of my favorites too.
