Venezuelan ex super-model turned Zen Monk Maria Bailey joins me today. We discuss modelling, objectification, Instagram and Facebook, presence, beauty, grace, South American culture, feminine power and shadow, victimhood and disempowering “awake in your whole body”, embodiment in service to what, embodiment as a commodity, women’s shadow, how women hurt people, the use of the body as currency, women as the keepers of the sensual. A deeply sensual and powerful one very much connected to the hard gender conversation of our times.
