Description

Is it not just that our culture denigrates the feminine, but perhaps that we as women do also?


Sacred feminine essence is the wild nature that brings energy and flavor to life. Recognition of this sacred feminine essence within us is an antidote to the epidemic of self-doubt and pushing ourselves hard and fast to prove our worth in a society and workplace that values men and the masculine over women and the feminine. How much time, energy, and money do we waste in envy and comparison? How can we really trust other women to be our allies and form true deep friendship if we don’t trust our own feminine essence? We must embrace a new feminism, that honors the feminine in us and the world just as much as it values the masculine. And we must teach our sisters and brothers to cultivate the sacred feminine and masculine within that will heal the toxicity we have been bred in.

Connection to the sacred feminine part of ourselves is not about denying our rational or analytical side. It is not about being dainty and cute. It is instead about RANGE. Are we able to relax into our truest expression in the moment, wherever on the spectrum that lands, whether it be a storm of rage, a warm honey pot of desire, or a wild wind of change and uncertainty. Or are we unconsciously running away from parts of our own feminine that we feel are shameful or weak?

We consider feminine essence as sacred because it is a fundamental part of the fabric of reality and can be found as that mysterious part in all of us that is so alluring to the masculine. Tapping into this energy brings an effortless power and an ever-renewing sense of wonder and play into day to day life. Although the feminine can be fierce, this is very different from popular notions of a bitchy “goddess” archetype. True connection to this source does not confer superiority. We are here to love and heal one another, and we must begin with ourselves and our sisterhood.

This work is not about dancing (though we like to dance!), dressing up for the male gaze, or losing all sense of center and critical thinking. It is instead about courage, sober connection to our own inner reality, and the power in being real and vulnerable together.


What is this?

This is a highly experiential workshop about discovering your truth as a woman. It is about relaxing into the sovereignty of a priestess. A priestess is a woman who knows her worth and who wears that knowledge with grace, humility, and reverence for the feminine essence mirrored in all women.

When we are connected with our true power, there is an ease, flow, and boundless energy available to us. Exploring the interplay of consciousness and energy, we will balance deep inner work with the healing power of play.

We bring you this unique offering born of years of study and personal transformation. As a play therapist and academic and sexuality coach, we value both embodied experience and deep study and the ways these two routes of knowledge inform and enhance each other.

This is the tip of the iceberg of a body of work for those who are looking for real, integrated wholeness, pleasure and power and going deep over the long term.


Who is it for?

This playshop is for women who want to embrace the power of their feminine essence, but who may feel shame or unease around the feminine, both in themselves and embodied in other women.

It’s for women who have started to realize how confronting being around groups of women actually can be. It’s for women who are ready for deep female friendship based on getting real, and speaking fears, and owning our sex and our hearts while holding up other women to do the same.

It’s for women who don’t want to be told that to be feminine you have to look, dress, or act a certain way.

It’s for women who feel stuck repeating the same social or emotional patterns at work, in friendships, and with lovers and who want to be shown something they cannot see.

It’s for women who are ready to claim a new inner reality that is not a constant stream of self-doubt, self-criticism, and ‘not good enough’.

It’s for women who are ready to step into openness and vulnerability, and sit in the discomfort of dismantling old ways of being and trying on the new.

It’s for women who don’t want to just talk and theorize about making a change, but actually dive into experiencing practices with other women that will open their body, heart, and spirit to what is really possible.

It’s for women who long to connect to a deeper feminine essence, but feel unable due a career, relationship or even self identity that keeps them overworking and in the masculine all day.

It’s also for women who may feel put off by ungrounded teachings based only in the experiential and who want a wider perspective on this wild world of sacred sexuality.
