WELCOME to the show Sonee!
Questions for the Guest: these are a guide only, and we will just have a conversation and go where it goes.
So last week we had the pleasure of getting to know you a little more and this week we want to talk a little more about the aspects of your spiritual life that are so important to you? What does being a spiritual person mean to you Sonee?
Do you see spirituality as being different to religion, if so how? why?
What is it, about being a woman and having the power of intuition that draws us to the spiritual, the metaphysical, do you think Sonee? (Just to clarify by metaphysical we mean – metaphysics which is the study of the fundamentals of the nature of reality and the understanding of it, including abstract concepts such as knowing)
I often talk about women as storytellers, why do you think it’s more important than ever for women to tell, not only their stories but also to write about their spiritual lessons and the learning from these lessons?
I recently read a comment on spirituality about why women are hardwired for spirituality. What do you think about this comment, and does it ring true to you?
I believe in the spiritual power of the feminine qualities, wherever they are present. I’m talking about the qualities of surrender, empathy, flow, nurture, tenderness, and love vs direction, logic, force, and strength which may be considered masculine qualities. Whilst these qualities are present across all humans no matter how they identify, it is the feminine qualities that appear to be evoking a rise in consciousness across the world. Is this something that you have experienced in your travels and conversation with people? Id love to know your thoughts on this subject.
Why do you think poetry is looked at as a feminine interest and how can female poets change this perception?
Where can people connect with you, how do they buy the books?
We will have some amazing offers from Sonee, coming up in the next shows so please don’t forget to tune in each week to hear more from the gorgeous Sonee Singh!
