How womens workshops can connect you to your feminine power

  I have been lucky enough to facilitate womens workshops all over the world. And have witnessed profound transformations. I am witnessing women collectively waking up to their feminine power as well as the power of sisterhood. So why are womens workshops so powerful? and why are more and more women finding themselves drawn to them? Mainstream education, and even much modern yoga training, has failed to offer us the all-important guidance that we need to tap into the mystery and power within our feminine bodies. Without the support, guidance and the space to nurture this inner connection so many women report that they experience a profound disconnect from their feminine power. How do you know if you have lost connection to your feminine power?? *If your attention is continually directed to the critical voice in your head *If your time and energy is consumed in behaviours ,habits and relationships that are not nourishing, for example; over or under eating, comparing yourself to others constantly and worrying about what might happen. *If you give your power away through looking to others for approval or to fulfill your needs * if you apologise for who you are and shame your body *if you feel numb , stuck and constantly tired. What i am witnessing is that women are realising that there must be something more than this kind of reality, where we judge ourselves, we judge our bodies and we judge each other. We are collectively waking up to our deep desire to be unashamedly sensual and feminine We want to FEEL feminine AND we want to feel empowered, We want to feel free AND we want to feel safe to be truly ourselves We want to feel met, and expressed and sexually vibrant. In other words , we want to be in our feminine power And we are realise that to do this we need to be supported by our sisters… So how do we reconnect to our feminine power? Through working with hundreds of women,and through engaging passionately with my own life long study of feminine power. I would suggest that our feminine power is activated when we activate the feminine life force energy in our bodies- our ‘Shakti’. Shakti is an ancient sanskrit word for the feminine principle, it is feminine energy, it is also translated as power. As women we are embodiments of Shakti, our Shakti is our power. Due to a culture that has trained...

Neediness…and how to deal with it….

Neediness…and how to deal with it….

I am lying there in bed, dying to be cuddled, adored, loved…. He is oh so distant all the way on the other side of the bed. It hurts, I feel more alone than if I was alone. AAGGHHHH! Any efforts to bring him closer to me is likely to be rejected because he can sense that I am feeling NEEDY and he is reacting through retreating into his own space. This has been a re occurring horror story showing up occasionally in the landscape of my recent relationships. Sometimes it has looked like this. Other times it has showed itself when I am single in the form of incredibly strong waves or insecurity and the sense of needing validation that I am attractive, wanted, worthy…. Yes, I have had to accept that there is a part of me, which is, incredibly NEEDY! Neediness sucks; literally and figuratively…It feels like a bottomless pit of hopelessness. It keep us running, looking for ways to escape feeling this horrible feeling, It takes us to that deep vulnerable place where we believe that we are not enough and therefore need to suck up love and validation from others to fill the vacuum within. This feeling of needing could be attributed to the kind of men that I attract and their own issues. But at the same time, after seeing a repeat pattern, I cannot deny that this has got something to do with ME. So I have taken the opportunity to ‘get to know’ my own neediness in order to learn more about how I can relate to others from a place of fullness, rather than lack. This is not just about me, this is about all women (and to some extent, all men and women, we all have our stories of needs unmet). But because I am a woman, who works with women, and I am dedicated to exploring the depth and breadth of this experience of being a woman – and sharing it. And because every woman who I shared my shameful neediness story has sighed deeply and said something to the effect of ‘Neediness! I have that too! Isn’t it awful?’. Because of this I feel strongly impelled to share my exploration of neediness, how to accept it and how to somehow find the lessons and the gifts within it. And it is about me, it is about a...

Are you shoulding? (and the 7 step ‘Should process’ for when you are)

Are you shoulding? (and the 7 step ‘Should process’ for when you are)

I find it fascinating how, we are the way that we are (how could we not be?) yet most of the time, we give ourselves a hard time with this idea that we ‘should’ be different. When we give ourselves a should we tell ourselves that what we are or what we are doing is somehow not good enough, we conjure up a parallel reality where there is a perfect self, who does all the perfect things, makes all the perfect decisions etc….. Yes I should eat less, smoke less, do more, earn more, exercise more, be thinner, smarter, sexier etc. be more organized/successful/relaxed/loving/knowledgeable/whatever. Do any of these babies sound familiar? Or do you perhaps have your own unique cocktails of ‘shoulds’ ? Isn’t it tiring? (Take a nice deep breath in and out now please).And now ask yourself; are you ready to give up the mind f*** and the fight and break out of the ‘should paradigm? Once and for all?’   Lets break it down…yes, there are so many ways we ‘should’ ourselves, but essentially they are all the same, a denial of the way things are, of who we are, right now. It is a way of arguing with reality, of moving out of our experience and into ‘the should paradigm’, which, quite frankly sucks.  This image of how we ‘should’ be, has the power to tyrannize us and keep us feeling generally incredibly inadequate. I wonder, why would we want to make ourselves wrong for being who we are? I wonder who the hell designed the ‘way things should be’ and I also wonder why we fall for it. I figure it is probably because we were trained into it, introduced to the should paradigm at an early age by those who knew no better, by those who were also conditioned to should themselves and question their innate self worth, those who were also not offered a way to connect to a sense of wonder and contentment with life as is it and who are, right now.  We have been conditioned into thinking that the ‘shoulding’ is in the service of self improvement, but really, it is more like a thinly disguised form of bullying, showing up in sneakily and subtle forms of self criticism. Living under the weight of ‘shoulds’ is heavy because when we ‘should’ we keep on reinforcing the notion that we...
