Neurodiversity Series 2: Intuition, Creative Authority and Neurodivergence with Lucy Pearce
In this week's episode I am talking to the amazing Lucy Pearce who is an author, publisher and powerful advocate who aims to amplify female voices and create a publishing model that works for women. She shares with us how her intuition has steered her course throughout her life and how her outlook on her life has changed since discovering she is neurodiverse. She talks to us about how her updated editions of her books are written now through the lens of neurodiversity. She calls out patriarchy and the messages that we have been forced to accept as women over centuries and calls us all forward to make shifts away from these dominant and oppressive narratives. We also talk about the powerful space of women's circles and finding safe and supportive pockets of the internet. Lucy beautifully shares with us how it is possible to find a balance that works for her and her neurodiversity while at the same time making powerful changes in the world. I am so grateful to have her in my circle. About Lucy:Lucy H. Pearce is driven by a need to create, connect and inspire.
