In this episode, Elizabeth Lesser, co-founder of Omega Institute, speaks with Karen about how women have been defined in a certain, often subjugated, way because of many well-known origin stories, like Adam and Eve. Elizabeth passionately presents a plea for women to dig deep to tell new stories about the human experience. We talk about how these storylines written by men influence our values today, how women often unconsciously collude with these stories, the exhausting one-sided view of power, and how new brave stories must come from a place Elizabeth calls "innervism."
