The Root of Our Impossibilities: Exploring Internalized Misogyny with Jorja Rivero LCSW (3-hr Zoom)

May 22, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


The Root of Our Impossibilities

Exploring Internalized Misogyny

a collaboration with relational therapist Jorja Rivero LCSW

The Root of Our Impossibilities explores how self-betrayal is a conditioned habit that interrupts our sense of Core Integrity.
Limiting our self-nourishing capacity as women keeps us underdeveloped, dependent, and tethered to the dominate cultural

Internalized Misogyny is not Personal,
it is an Ancestral and Familiar Conditioning

You know this for yourself by observing your limiting beliefs and the frustrating ways you find yourself undermining and overriding your feelings. Desperate to find a solution you often feel the urge to hurry up and just feel good. Rather than listen to that which is alive deep within, you convince yourself that life can’t change. Yet something within keeps calling your attention…
but it feels so dangerous.

To grow our discernment, integrity and flourish we start by slowing down, showing up, and tenderly receiving ourselves wherever we are in each moment. Only then do genuine feelings arise and creative possibilities unfold.

Referred to by Daoist Healers as The Muscle of the Soul, the core tissue of our physical body, called Psoas, lives deep within the center of our being and is akin to our Real Self. Often sensed as frozen or sedated this tissue alerts us to how we have been cut off from our innate wisdom.

Rooting into Core Integrity requires that we sense our own being as well as the container that has shaped us. Only then do we begin attuning to a different way of being. Our birthright and capacity to feel and receive the sensorial language of Earth’s pleasures goes hand in hand with honoring our True Self.



Jorja Rivero, LCSW has a Masters in Social Work from NYU, clinical training in Gestalt Psychotherapy and is a certified Relational Life Therapist. She taught yoga for many years and continues to teach guided meditation inspired from the practices she trained in. Jorja works individually with clients, does couple’s work, group work, and offers workshops.


CONVERSATION: Available at Liz Koch YouTube Rejuvenating Our Inner Knowing As Women
Author of  The Psoas Book, Core Awareness, and Stalking Wild Psoas: Embodying Our Core Intelligence, Liz Koch invites  Jorja to traverse the terrain of “internalized misogyny” as it tethers women to Being Too Much, or not enough. How do these stories live within our flesh, blood, and bones? And how does the colonized top-down mandate shrink our worth and our capacity to flourish? Recognizing that although WOMAN is a force of nature and the portal of all human life, she carries a legacy of profound dissatisfaction. How can we awaken to the self-sabotaging internalized patriarchal constructs that literally live in our Soma? What can rejuvenate our inner knowing? Reflecting on our basic goodness and the innate goodness of life on Earth we discuss how nourishing our capacity moves us fully into our dynamic relational being.

Welcome to Core Awareness™

Liz Koch is an international educator and author who seeks to dissolve the objectification of “body” in order to re-conceptualize human beings as biologically intelligent, self-organizing, and self-healing. Employing biomorphic and embryonic paradigms, Liz redefines psoas as smart, expressive tissue that is both elemental and universal.

Core Awareness fosters core integrity and self-efficacy as creative and expressive human beings.

Here at Core Awareness you’ll discover new ways of understanding the psoas. In addition to the blogs there is an educationally rich sourcing free for the taking. Explore my videos, articles, podcasts, interviews, FAQ’s and community links and let yourself go wild!
