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...

Tantra 101 – 4 tips for daily life

Tantra 101 – 4 tips for daily life

We think that the way out of our old patterns will be complicated. Secretly we want the release, we want to feel free, we want to feel alive, comfortable in our own skins and confident in our place on the earth. We crave this, yet we also fear this, we fear ourselves, we fear being exposed. We are conditioned to be afraid of life and our patterns keep those fears in place. We fear that perhaps we will never move past these patterns that hold us in fear and separation…we can begin to think that it will take a super powerful highly advanced technique to get us out of our old patterns and into an experience of freedom. As it turns out, the way beyond our patterns does not involve a complex magic trick, it does not come in the form of a special drug or a high salary or a mastery of a sexual technique or a fancy meditation technique or any technique for that matter… The cosmic joke is that we just need to REMEMBER HOW IT IS TO BE NATURAL! Is that all? That might seem overly simple, but the truth is that in our essence we are wild and sacred and naturally ‘plugged in’ beings governed by an incredible in-built intelligence. Most of us were not educated to listen and respond to this natural wild intelligence but there is a way of coming back to it. Basically. Tantra in my practice and understanding, is essentially a way of living and relating in which we embrace life and reclaim our natural spiritual wisdom and innocence. In innocence there is TRUST, there is playfulness, there is the ability to be vulnerable and open and SURRENDER to what feels alive in the moment. There is the willingness to go past ideas of right and wrong and our conditioned patterns to embrace life as it is and experience life in its fullness. Through Tantra we learn to BE with ourselves rather than run from ourselves. We shine a loving light of acceptance within so that our shadows can exist without being cut off from our deep heart. We learn to be transparent about what is really going on for us and in the process we learn to accept who we are, open more to more of what we are, and move beyond the fear that keeps us wrapped up...

Why ‘spiritual’ men can be such a pain in the ass (& why we love them too)…..

Why ‘spiritual’ men can be such a pain in the ass (& why we love them too)…..

Whilst recovering from an intense dual between Shakti and Shiva ,in the boxing ring of conscious relationship. I felt moved to share these insights. You may relate to them, you may not. Whatever you do, please take this lightly….  First of all i would like to clarify; the kind of men I refer to are the kind of men who are consciously ‘on the path’. And so for want of a better word, I call them ‘spiritual’ here, I am sure you know who I mean….  At some point I realised that I could only really be with men who were at least trying to be conscious, and that If they did not have any spiritual awareness- then we probably wouldn’t have much in common and would not be on equal footing. So since that that time I have only attracted ‘spiritual’ men into my romantic sphere, and really, that has been perhaps more challenging than I had bargained for…(hence the ‘pain in the arse bit).   And i am sure that many other women can relate to my observations.  Here are some key reasons why we both love ( and get completely frustrated by) our male counterparts on the spiritual path… They have a spiritual justification for friggin everything.  Oh goddess…. They can be a veritable encyclopaedia of spiritual knowledge. They will ruthlessly squash your feminine need for emotional connection under a spiritual concept. They will give you advaitic discourses and lectures on impermanence when you just want a hug. Basically, in the realm of words and ideas and spiritual concepts, he is in his comfort zone, and he may tend to hang out in that comfort zone with his spiritual concepts for company, as you ride the waves of emotional energy. If he stays on his spiritual high horse, you can well begin to feel like an un-evolved, over emotional and hopelessly ‘attached’ being as he ‘witnesses’ your process from an annoyingly detached standpoint. (Deep sigh). It is your stuff When you say something to the effect of “I feel sad because you………”. He says “Well! This must be the sadness you have in you already that is arising, its got nothing to do with me”.  It can become like a ping pong game with the ball always swiftly coming right back in your face even if you feel that you have sent out a particularly valid...

The yoga of embodiment—3 essential tools for getting back into the body and your feminine power

The yoga of embodiment—3 essential tools for getting back into the body and your feminine power

Do you tend to have a busy mind that takes up most of your attention? Have you wondered how you could ‘ get out of your mind’ and embody your femininity more? In my workshops I speak a lot about ‘ coming back into the body’ and many women have asked me what I mean by that… This has been a surprisingly hard question to answer despite the fact that, to me, the difference between being IN my body and NOT in my body is HUGE. One quick answer that I have come up with is that the opposite of being IN your body is being IN your head. Most women I encounter can relate to this busy mind syndrome, despite the fact most of us feel happiest and most fulfilled when we feel good in our bodies, and open and present to the fullness of that experience. So how do we come back to the body and reclaim that juicy experience we yearn for? Perhaps the most important thing to understand is that this tendency to focus our attention on our mental activity, is usually an unconscious effort to escape the feelings in our bodies; And that this cuts us off from our embodied wisdom and, in turn, our feminine power and succulence. Being IN your body means that you are aware of the continually changing sensations, feelings and sensations; both the obvious and subtle. The physical, the emotional, the energetic. It is the moment to moment openness to feel ‘Shakti’ (feminine life force) moving freely though our bodies. This is the yoga of embodiment, and it will transform your life. So lets break it on down… What happens when we get back IN our bodies? *The minds eternal dialogue becomes relegated to the background, where it belongs. We use our mind when we need it and the rest of the time we are available to the magic of aliveness in our bodies. *We learn to sense what we need, what is right for us and what isn’t. *WE learn to TRUST ourselves. *We get clearer boundaries. *We learn about the ways that we escape shut down to feeling and shut down to life. *Life gets juicier. Working with women over the years, I have noticed a common yearning to have more energy and intimacy in their lives and to live from an empowered place. Living IN our...
