Workshop – The Divine Feminine Embodied

Photo by Sebastian Molina

We are in the middle a powerful surge of the rising of the Divine Feminine, also known as the Age of Aquarius. Intuition, empathy, trust and connection are becoming more valued in our society than they have been for thousands of years. As we build these capacities within ourselves, we must release what is holding us back. We have internalized judgement and fear that block our body’s wisdom of deep Eros: love, connection and pleasure.

Journey with me through your body to discover your desires, give voice to them and navigate to their fulfillment. By unlocking your body’s ability to get what it desires, you strengthen your intuition and trust in yourself and each other.

This workshop will involve exercises of deep listening, consent and non-sexual touch.

Unraveling: to come undone

I’ve created an interactive performance called Unraveling, exploring obedience, power and collective catharsis through improvisation and it was selected to be part of The Secret City Art Revival in Woodstock this coming weekend.  Join me Saturday, July 28th, in front of WAAM, 28 Tinker Street.  Performances at noon, 2pm and 4:30pm.
It looks like it will be a great festival, full of pop-up performances all over town, a town picnic, a silent disco & more events throughout the weekend.

Rewilding

How do I extract myself from the normal and navigate back to the sensuous?  Back to where the wind caressing my back takes my breath away, where the soft earth kisses my feet, gently massaging my soles and drinking my tension, where the soft voluptuous clouds whisper their intent.

First I stop speaking and slowly make my way outside.  My shoes come off and I feel the soft cool moistness of the earth.  My gaze softens as I take in the sway of the leaves and grass in the wind.  A deep sigh of release and contentment.  Layers come off and I sink to the ground, letting the breeze kiss my skin.  I tickle the tips of the grass and close my eyes.

I’m there.

Wild Women Retreat Registration

It is time!  The 4th Annual Wild Women Retreat will take place the weekend of the August full moon: 8/24 – 8/26 in the hills of Hartwick, NY.  Registration is now open until August 10th or until we fill up.

We have a beautiful space with woods and fields and a swimming pond… a covered pavilion and room for camping… It is quite lovely and it’s secluded and perfect for our gathering.   We come together to celebrate and honor ourselves, our sisters, our connection with nature and the cycles of life. We share food and co-create the magic of the weekend with our offerings.

Every year we have had more and more women join us, so we expect this year to be the same.  We have limited space so register soon to reserve your space!

There are two steps to register:

  1. Complete the registration form.
  2. Submit the $20 fee through Paypal (covers you and any babies and daughters you may bring along Saturday.)  This is used to pay for the space.  If we collect more than we need, we will decide collectively how to spend the rest.

Additional details:

In keeping with the collaborative beauty of sisterhood, we will each contribute in a few ways:

Food

Meals are done potluck style.  Vanessa Garcia will be coordinating food this year.  Once registration has closed and we have a full head count for the weekend, she will contact you with your meal assignment. You can then sign up for whichever part of that meal that suits you.  Meals will be arranged to provide a spectrum of dishes to accommodate various dietary restrictions (i.e vegetarian, vegan, paleo, etc).
Any mothers of picky eaters who will be joining us on Saturday are encouraged to come prepared with a sack lunch or snacks in the event your little one finds our menu unpalatable 😉

offerings

In addition to food, we ask you to make an offering of your time and skills.   That’s where the magic happens.  You’ll see more details on this when you register.

schedule

Friday afternoon we set up the space, share dinner and at dusk, there will be a opening ritual of transformation and connection.
Saturday is our family day, so babies and young girls are welcome to join us during the day to frolic in the woods.   It is a time to share gifts, skills, knowledge, workshops, whatever we bring with us and create from the earth.
Saturday night is the Bonfire, so bring your howls, your magic, your drums and your bells. This is indeed a Circle of the Circles and our monthly magic is magnified, so come prepared to let it all go and embrace the wild.
Sunday we share breakfast, relax a final time by the pond and break up camp.

A magical relaxing weekend of sister time, ritual and play awaits!
