Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.
Mary Oliver, “The Uses of Sorrow”
Welcome to the second episode of Season 4 of The Women’s Leadership Podcast.
This week’s episode outlines the second stage of The Heroine’s Journey: Betrayal.
Betrayal is not something we want to experience, because it brings with it all the fear, anger, sadness, and shame.
Betrayal can feel like failure, if we view it only through the eyes of traditional models of leadership.
But betrayal is also a pivotal moment of choice, where the breaking point is suddenly obvious, and our decision becomes clear.
Betrayal is imperative because it shatters our illusions, and takes us down the Heroine’s Journey path to transformation.
