Fifty Shades of Gender podcast graphic with Sally Goldner

Episode 43

A conversation with Sally Goldner AM


47 min. Recorded on 19 April 2021.

Sally’s pronouns are she/her, and she identifies as a bi/pan introvert & Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) trans woman. Find out what that means to Sally in this episode.

We also talk about how our unique personality labels interact with each other, unlearning and unblocking ourselves, balancing the masculine and feminine in leadership by becoming better at receiving and listening, and breaking the binary by queering Tantra.

“It was always this feeling of ‘something’s wrong with me’, but of course there wasn’t; I just was missing a piece of jigsaw puzzle to fit it all together.”
