Anahita Joon Tehrani

Anahita Joon is a modern-day priestess, healer, and medicine woman who is the embodiment of the feminine. Over the last 25 years, she has worked with healers all over the world and conducted her own research on what sacred leadership among women truly means. “Freedom is the ultimate privilege and yet it is the hardest to learn how to use,” she says. In her talk during Wf1’s Truthteller Tour in Boulder, she remembers being a 14-year-old who moved from the external oppression of her home country, Iran, and struggling with how it felt to not fit into American culture. Anahita discusses her own journey toward claiming her sensuality and her connection to the sacred, as well as moving out of both internal and external oppression by integrating the pieces of herself she’d rejected.
