Hey beautiful beings,
thank you for listening to another Daydreaming Wolves episode, you are so appreciated!
In this interview I spoke to Marissa of Cyclical Body about body fluency, cyclical self-care and embodiment – as you know all things I am curiously exploring at the moment. I am working with Marissa and am in her membership program, so it feels really exciting to share just a few of the things I am learning from her with you today.
Here is some of what we talked about:
- Living in deeper harmony with our bodies
- Our menstrual cycles as teachers
- Finding more inclusive, authentic and open language around our bodies
- Learning to really listen and following our stories
- Shifting out of seeing our bodies as enemies
- Finding gateways of embodied exploration
Here is what Marissa says about her work:
I offer menstrual cycle education and holistic womb wellness guidance from an earth & body based perspective. My entrance into this work comes through birth work, studying with Whapio of the Matrona and Rachelle Garcia Seliga of Innate Traditions Postpartum. I was led to this path particularly through the ancestral elements of womb work, and at some point fell in love with the menstrual cycle and it’s been my teacher ever since. In the last year I have deepened into pelvic work through studying Holistic Pelvic Care with Tami Kent. I’m endlessly amazed by the wisdom of our bodies and the creative resilience moving through us. I am deeply informed by all the plant friends that have graciously found me on my path, as well as the territories that i’ve been held by – san diego, occupied kumeyaay land and recently lyons, colorado, occupied ute land.

:: About me and the Daydreaming Wolves podcast ::
My name is Yarrow – I am a queer writer, body worker, web designer and comforter. My podcast and the community I’ve built around it is meant to support soft folks in reclaiming embodiment, creative expression, a connection to nature and everyday magic.
On Daydreaming Wolves you’ll find a mix of deep dive conversations with beautiful people who are exploring things that feel good and solo episodes in which I am sharing how to guides and magical food for thought with you.
I enjoy bringing people together into a community that loves to play with plants, writes together and creates everyday rituals to make life feel more beautiful. My program, Embodied Magic is an affordable and well-curated monthly course and community. It celebrates weirdness and explores ways in which self-care can help us reclaim joyful and sustainable forms of resistance. It’s available to all Patrons and you can learn more here: https://www.yarrowmagdalena.com/wild-embodiment/
I am not on social media anymore because I want to focus on creating indy media like my podcasts, compare myself less often and spent little time on my phone. This means I have more energy to nurture my communities and make cool things for you! If you’d like to stay in touch you can sign up for my newsletter over here: https://www.yarrowmagdalena.com/embodied-magic/ – I am usually sending them once or twice a month when I have new episodes, resources or interesting stories to share. You will also get my free mini course on embodied magic.
I also run a web design, tech support and small business mentoring studio over here: yarrowdigital.com/
