Episode 29: Hot Yogic Intimacy with Madelyn Moon

In this episode of Happily Holistic, Amy speaks with Madelyn Moon, a Top 50 podcast host on iTunes for the category “All Self-Help,” and spiritual coach who is committed to radical truth-telling and teaching people how to embody polarities across every spectrum.

Madelyn was led divinely to coaching after experiencing a challenging upbringing in which her autonomy and agency were often taken away. Emotions went unacknowledged, and she was often told that what she was feeling wasn’t real. She coped with self-hatred through calorie counting, counting steps, bodybuilding, and OCD tendencies, which inevitably led to panic attacks. By college, she was still spiraling in self-destructive patterns – abusing alcohol, food, and Adderall, which led to several breakdowns.

Fortunately, she realized she was hurting herself and went on a personal retreat for a year at age 22, which is when she started podcasting and coaching. Her work has been a massive deep dive into all things innately feminine and masculine, relationships, polarity, finding spirit, and living a tantric life in regards to the world.

Madelyn’s lineage is yogic intimacy, exploring how you can transmit a message using the body. After a two-year deep dive into masculine/feminine energy with two teachers, she was up-leveled to a deeper understanding of embodiment and what it actually means: feeling a spiritual presence in your openness all day long.

As Madelyn explains, duality exists on every kind of plane. We engage with polarity in three layers: ourselves, the other, and the world. For example, in order for a relationship to work with couples there needs to be a sense of “the other,” and needs to be sameness, but too much sameness often kills polarity. Therefore, creating polarity through distance – physically (a trip) or energetically (being more of how you identify, such as feminine) – in the name of love can keep polarity alive.
