038: THE COURAGE TO LEAVE: The Story of Warren Jeff’s 65th Wife

Where are you trapped in your life and what is keeping you from breaking free?  Briell Decker Blanchart will inspire you with her FASCINATING survival story, featured in CNN, The Guardian, and Inside Edition. She escaped from a polygamous cult, literally breaking herself out of a locked-up room in a “Repentance House.” The cult’s prophet was Warren Jeffs, to whom she was “given to” as a teenager.  Warren had over 70 wives and concubines before his arrest and incarceration. Briell was groomed, programmed, even tortured to stay obedient from the time she was a young girl. Eventually she allowed herself to question, use her voice and wake up.  Now, she is writing a book, speaking out, and is involved in 4 non profits involved in cult recovery and complex trauma solutions.

Polygamy has been a charged topic for me since my childhood.  Briell and I will be working together in the future to empower and support women in these communities who are awakening and transitioning.

In this episode:

  • Never spiritual enough, obsession with worthiness, praying to be counted among the elite who will “make it”—how are these damaging paradigms being perpetuated in systems and institutions? 
  • What would it be like to be escorted to a secret location, taken to a room and it’s a big surprise who’s waiting for you at the altar?
  • How is the disempowerment of women through silencing and subordination affecting the health of individuals, families, communities and the world?


How do you empower a woman?  You guide her to discover her own soul voice.  Briell listened to hers, which gave her the COURAGE TO LEAVE. I will share beautiful soul-based practices that will facilitate your empowerment and full awakeneing at my STAND SPEAK SHINE Retreat (Embodying Your Feminine Soul: STEP INTO YOURSELF) Oct 24-26.  Please join us!  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/standspeakshine-retreat-embodying-the-feminine-divine-tickets-68628556861
