Sexual Awakening for Women Online Personal Intensive and Facilitators Training
~ Starting June 2019 ~
Experience living every day as the Awake Feminine whose sexuality is natural and wild, unfettered by the past, and an expression of deep love and creative abundance.
Imagine living every day from inside the juicy, fluid ecstasy of your womanly sexual body. Imagine creating a world of Sisterhood, where women come together supporting each other in awakening the fire of our love-infused sexuality. Imagine unleashing that power into the world. Imagine the world we could create.
The time has come for us to live this dream. Patriarchy is over. Let's put down the battle armour, let go our drive to perform, and surrender the outdated patriarchal model of sexuality that has created our world. We can come home to our womanly bodies. We can come to rest in the essence of the Feminine that we are. She whispers the most tender love through our limbs. She caresses our throats with the finest song. She calls us to come home, home to the warm embrace of our essential nature, inside our awakened sexual bodies as women.
The journey home is going to take some time. We invite you to dedicate nine months to gestate this child of your feminine sexual essence, followed by an optional 6 months for the facilitation training. This time will ask of you the attention, the care, and the love that it takes to birth a new creation into the world. In this period, we will tend the subtlest awakenings in our sexual bodies. We will hone our capacity to do sexual shadow work and to heal our personal and collective sexual wounds. We will let go of sex that no longer serves us. We will open and soften and learning how to direct the fire of our sexual essence as it runs up through our bodies.
For centuries, sages and mystics have been studying what happens when sexual energy wakes up as a spiritual force in us. They have called this awakened sexual energy Kundalini Shakti.
The time has come for women across the world to awaken to the fullness of our spiritual-sexual essence. The time has come to take radical responsibility for everything in our experience. It is through the awakening of our sexuality that a new world can be birthed. This is our power and potential as women.
And then, if you feel called, learn how to support other women with this awakening by becoming a part of a select group of women offering this work in the world as a certified Sexual Awakening for Women Facilitator.
Go share your love with the world – with confidence.
