There is this deep, wise and ancient inner knowing that my body wants to express, do you have this feeling as well?

"When sleeping women wake, mountains move" -Chinese Proverb

I have experienced much trauma in my life, from physical and sexual abuse, having my light squashed and put in a tidy box so I would not be heard or seen. I have fallen in deep grief after my mother passed away and gained 50 lbs. Can you relate to this?

For the last 7 years, I have been feeling this strong call to delve into healing the unknown landscape of womens bodies such as their breasts, bellies and vaginas.

My first teacher is Rosita Arvigo, ND for Maya Abdominal Therapy.

My second modality with multiple modules is Lymphatic Drainage Therapy with a special course specific to breast care.

My third modality is internal pelvic work, meaning working vaginally and rectally. I have two teachers in this area, Tami Kent, PT and Bryan Baisinger, DC.

In the last few weeks, I have found 3 workshops that will provide me the comprehensive skills to expand my practice in helping women release old patterns of shame, guilt, grief, sexual abuse, and even reproductive surgeries like C-sections.

Do you feel disengaged from your body, self love, others?
Do you feel stuck in a rut with your partner or job?
When was the last time your felt creative?

The first retreat is in March with Almine Wisdom, a Toltec Seer and Mystic. This all women's shamanic retreat will be held in Almine's house on the coast in Oregon, so I can drive there. This retreat has no agenda, the alchemy of the group will bring in what needs to be discussed, however I will be initiated in all 4 levels of Belvaspata, an Angelic Healing Modality that came through Almine in 2006.

The second workshop is in April is with Kim Keller, an Intimacy Educator and coach. She lives in Ashland, Oregon so I can also drive here to save on transportation. Here is a description of the workshop...

Tending the Temple - Sacred Care of Yoni
Join us for a fabulous weekend of awakening to our own divinity. There is a revolution going on, and it is within each of us. For centuries, women have been separated from the deep connecting energy of our pleasure, of our sexuality and of our sensual nature. We know this is the most powerful energy we can feel in our bodies, and yet these energies have been severed,... restricted, diminished, shamed, guilted and locked in the closet. It is time to bring them out into the light! To open, examine, explore, expand and awaken to the delight and pleasure that is not only our birthright, but is intricately built into the very design of our bodies. Creating sacred time for ourselves is important, and Ajana and I would like to invite you to join us for a powerful weekend of Divine Ritual, Sacred Play and Sensual Awakening.

The third workshop is in May, with Jen and Ben Rode, Explosive Sexual Healing Practitioners. This workshop will be held in the San Fransico Bay area. This workshop really appeals to me because of their ethics, and somatic re-education approach by combining hypnotherapy, reiki and sexological bodywork. This class will be fully clothed and will cover all theory, philosophy and techniques.

Here is part of the description of the workshop...

To the Intuitive Goddesses: Are you already a conscious, high vibrational woman who is ready to heal the divine feminine and divine masculine on a large scale? Do you want to empower yourself and other women? Are you ready to step fully into your power and trusting your intuition, without apology? Are you ready to be a leader? Are you powerful, vulnerable, and authentic? Are you ready for clarity, balance and co-creative work with the masculine?

I look forward to facilitating and holding sacred space for women on their journey of unveiling the inner strength and beauty for all to see.
