Divine Mommy University
FEMALE SHAMANISM AND SHAKTI FIRE
Divine Mommy University (DMU) is an offering of support as you connect deeply into the wise, empowered, healing, and transformative energy of the Divine Feminine within. Each of us- man, woman, and child- has the blueprint for this inner ‘Goddess’ energy to come forward and lead with peace, love, dedication, connection, and spiritual maturity. Our world needs this now and, our world needs you. By creating sacred space to open and honor our feminine magick, a magick that is ours by birthright, we can fully step into our purpose of embodying the Feminine to such a degree that we lift up and invite the energies of the Masculine to join us. I hope that together, as more and more of us continue to heal and shift, we can raise our collective vibration enough to heal the family system, and by that, I mean our entire Earth Family System of EVERY LIVING THING.
There are 35 different topics of study. Some are cumulative, some are not. Some topics work best when studied together. I have tried to organize the information below to reflect this. However, if any part of the DMU curriculum calls to you, get in touch. I know we can create the exact right ‘syllabus’.
For our work, we can work in-person, remotely, or over the phone. If you prefer to work alone, that is fine, or if you have a small group of Sisters or a partner that you would like to share the work with, that is wonderful too, as much of this material will create opportunities for shifts in your intimate relationships. Each topic takes approximately 90 minutes to work through based on your comfort level with processing the different information and exercises involved.
With a process that includes passages from books and spiritual texts, inspirational quotes, fun ‘getting-to-know-you’ activities, and meaningful rituals, this work is filled with the emotional resonance, pleasure, stillness, and open-heartedness that so many of us crave. In the roller-coaster existence of daily life, step off of the perpetual ‘to-do’ list and let go of chronic exhaustion. You deserve this. Your soul is crying out for this. Some participants say the most important part is the Sisterhood, some say it is the perspective, some say it’s the meditations…It is ALL important…and so are you!
I know that when women intentionally come together to release and heal, in any number or in any way, the power for transformation is palpable. To feel the comfort of knowing that you can express yourself, without fear of judgment, in a supportive environment, is nothing less than miraculous.
Take a look at what Divine Mommy University has to offer.
Let your intuition be your guide. I know how powerful this work is and I am honored to share this journey with you.
Remember…every time we raise our vibration, we heal the world within us and around us.
Divine Mommy University Curriculum:
~The Maternal Gift Economy
“When we create a society in which gift giving has become the human norm, our spirituality will be liberated and we will recognize the Goddess in each other and the Earth.”- Genevieve Vaughan
The Maternal Gift Economy teaches us that the most basic, most meaningful relationships are based upon giving. When this occurs, in place of an ‘exchange,’ economy, the potential for bonding to occur between the Giver and Receiver becomes a priority. This topic is suited for groups large and small and typically can be completed in one or two sessions, based upon personal needs.
~GODDESS HERSTORY-OUR PALEOLITHIC ANCESTRESSES
~GODDESS HERSTORY-OUR NEOLITHIC ANCESTRESSES
~THE GODDESS WITHIN: The Language of the Goddess
"It, of course, makes sense that the earliest depiction of the divine power in human form should have been female rather than male.”
-Riane Eisler, The Chalice and The Blade
If knowledge is power, wisdom is empowerment. So many collective woundings to the feminine are the responsibility of inaccurately understood, or deliberately hidden, historical implications of Matriarchal, Goddess Based societies from the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods. Oftentimes completely ignored, this crucial swath of human history is a well-spring of female empowerment. When we know where we come from and we know what to look for, our abilities to open up to the ever-present energies of the Divine Feminine exponentially grow. Study the work of Vicki Noble, Marija Gimbutas, and Riane Eisler, as we delve into her-story together.
“According to myriad images that have survived from the great span of human prehistory on the Eurasian continents, it was the sovereign mystery and creative power of the female as the source of life that developed into the earliest religious experiences.”
-Marija Gimbutas, The Civilization of the Goddess
~THE GREAT MOTHER GODDESS ENERGY- A Healing Practical
"Who told you the stories that taught what it meant to be human, and did they have your best interests at heart?"
So much healing is available to us and channeling in the guidance from our Great Mother Goddess is a powerful way to start! With wisdom from Isis, Pachamama, Tiamat, and Odudua, travel deeply into the intuitive space of your inner Medicine Woman. With Essential Oils, Crystals, and the Four Archetypes of the Feminine, create an energy treatment that will support and protect your tribe. There is much to experience with this practical and it may take several sessions to work through the material.
~LUNAR PHASE OF THE CRONE
~LUNAR PHASE OF THE MAIDEN
~LUNAR PHASE OF THE MOTHER
~LUNAR PHASE OF THE ENCHANTRESS
“We only have to go back a century or two to find evidence of the crucial relationship between the cycles of the moon and their influence over almost all aspects of life. In pre-patriarchal times, many religions had female deities who in various ways represented and described the relationship of women to the moon, thus allowing women a sense of divinity of their bodily processes. The moon also has a sense of luminous beauty that pulls us into a different state of awareness. Whereas the sun lights the way for work and the round of daily life, the moon lights a different aspect of the human experience: the inner life, the imagination, the watery diffuse realms of the unconscious.”
-Lara Owen, Her Blood is Gold
Our bodies, psyches, cycles, minds, emotions, and psychic abilities are all inexorably and intricately linked to our phenomenally beautiful, reliable, and steadfast Mother Moon. As she cycles through her monthly Lunar Cycle of Dark Moon, Waxing Moon, Full Moon, and Waning Moon, we too experience the dynamically cyclical energies. These energies all correlate to our Menstrual Experience, our Physical Age, the Seasons, our Connection to the Goddess, and the Archetypal Energies of Womanhood: Crone, Maiden, Mother, and Enchantress. Knowing how interconnected the human female is with the natural world is a huge benefit for daily life as well as an intimate opportunity to get to know yourself better. Learning about and incorporating this Lunar Wisdom is best done in multiple sessions and in Lunar Order:
“For many, many women, the connection between the lunar cycle and the menstrual cycle is an experiential truth: Our hormonal, emotional, creative, active, and spiritual selves, and of course our powerful and necessary bleeding times, correlate firmly every month with what we see of the Moon’s waxing and waning light.”
-Miranda Gray, Red Moon
~RECLAIMING OUR BLOOD CYCLE-MENARCHE
“Imagine you live in a world where there is no embarrassment about having your first period, one in which you feel you are entering into an exciting world of adulthood and are given every encouragement to develop all your potential strength and wisdom in ways that feel natural to you as a woman.”
Lara Owen, Her Blood is Gold
Reclaim this precious gift of womanhood within the safe context of the Sacred Feminine. For so many of us, the start of our menstruation was not celebrated. Yet, this special event marks the beginning of our bodies being able to create and sustain life, as well as bringing on the much needed psychic abilities to divine in prophecy for our people. Re-honor the girl you were with the wisdom and love you have today in this Sacred Ceremony of Menarche. This topic is useful and empowering for women of all ages. It is also an impactful opportunity to teach our young women about their body’s magickal cycles and rhythms.
~BLOOD WISDOM: CREATING OUR MOON TENT
“When women started to bleed, they left their homes and families to go to the sacred introspective space of the Bleeding Lodge. The Lodge was honored and respected by the entire community, for the dreams and visions of the bleeding women brought vital survival information such as planting and healing knowledge and guidance on community relations.”
-Spider, Songs of Bleeding
Today, little do we remember the potent and needed power of the menstrual woman. Imagine a time when soft fabrics, nourishing foods, gentle songs, and loving conversations were your prescriptions for this sacred occurrence. Together, let us step back into the quiet and healing space of the Moon Tent to honor you, your body, your wisdom and your Oracular Powers as a woman bleeding for herself, her people and her world. If you are no longer bleeding, allow this powerful ritual to reconnect you to previous Moon Times so that you may re-story the narrative of your bodies inherent wisdom, natural power, and intuitive magick.
~RECLAIMING OUR BLOOD & BIRTH MAGICK
“Female Shamanism is based in the blood cycle. Western women have forgotten the spiritual significance of the menstrual cycle and need to reconnect in order to empower ourselves. The blood mysteries of birthing and menstruation are at the core of Shamanism.”
Vicki Noble, Shakti Woman
No matter if you are a mother to ‘human’ children, you are birthing new life every day. This is not only a biological function. Our ability to create is directly related to spiritual ascension, divine wisdom, and empowered transformation. All too often, in modern times, we forget the feminine magick and mysteries involved in a woman’s ability to create and sustain life. Yet, this special time and talent must be honored with a dedicated reverence. Intentionally come and create, or recreate, a glorious ritual to distinctly pay tribute to you and your capacity for giving life to the world. Birth, in all of its various forms, is beautiful and worthy of celebration. So are you.
~RECLAIMING OUR CYCLIC TRANSFORMATION
“This is YOUR time. It is YOUR journey. It is better to be in control of it as much as possible, to feel that it is your right to explore yourself and your feelings. Gift yourself this time of understanding and make it the best it can be for YOU.”
-Collette Brown, Menopause-A Natural and Spiritual Journey
Moon Pause, or Menopause, is perhaps one of the most misunderstood aspects of our feminine journey. Medicine, bodily changes, emotional challenges, and getting older all fall into the category of, “Don’t want to talk about it.” Yet, throughout history and for many indigenous peoples today, this transitory time is revered as a woman’s natural progression towards her full embodiment of wisdom, power, understanding, and compassion. No longer bleeding, the menopausal woman holds all of the Shamanic wisdom within. When given the full ability to step directly into the experience, physical symptoms can be reduced, emotions can be appreciated, and body changes can be welcomed. A good dose of honest laughter about all of this can also release our Western pathologization of this Sacred time. Engage in ritual and ceremony to embrace your Moon Pause. No matter your physical age, this perspective can be empowering and uplifting for any woman.
~CHANNELING INTUITION FROM THE SACRED FEMININE & MASCULINE
“To understand God in terms of the Goddess, one must look to the great wheel of natural balance. If Goddess is all things, then so too must be the masculine deity, but he must be so in relation and equality to her, supporting her in the most ultimate of yin-yang styles.”
-Starhawk, The Spiral Dance
Sometimes a new level of understanding can open us to a new layer of compassion. No longer does the old paradigm of ‘Women are from Mars, Men are from Venus,’ serve us. If we are to heal core wounds and shift the antiquated dynamics which perpetuate the battle of the sexes, we must heal within. That road begins with self-forgiveness, self-love, and self-mastery. Mutual respect and authentic communication, two needed factors in any healthy relationship, are wonderful by-products of this intentional soul-based work. Channel in guidance from the archetypal energies of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine and do your part to recalibrate humanity. Step into an empathic space of awareness and allow all of your relationships to reflect the healing energy of releasing old beliefs, cultivating new perspectives, and unearthing new ways to offer support, understanding, and compassion. This is a great topic to explore with your partner and can be done as a single session or broken up, over several sessions, to deepen the work.
~HEART CENTERED ENERGY PRACTICAL
“When a woman begins to be aware of the divine spark within, she will soon be faced with a decision whether to honor and trust it….She is so accustomed to looking outside herself for authority that the realization of God(dess) within is radical and shattering. It changes everything.”
-Wendlyn Alter, The Yang Heart of Yin
Feeling a bit low? Is your Immune System down? Does your life-force feel depleted? Sometimes it takes a reorganization of energy to purify, protect, and revitalize. Come on! Think of everything you’ve done today. It is no wonder you are exhausted. When our reserves are low, we can become more susceptible to illness, injury, and dis-ease. None of us wants or needs that kind of distraction, but perhaps that kind of distraction is exactly what our Higher Self has called in for us. Try slowing down for an hour. Sit still and tap into the guidance of that wise and intuitive medicine woman. What does she have to tell you? Maybe going deep to commune with your inner knowing is exactly what the ‘Dr,’ (aka-YOU) ordered. Experience this Heart Centered Energy Healing Practical to re-empower and re-infuse your Goddess-Gas-Tank. All seven of your Chakras will thank you. So will your soul. This Practical can be done as a single session or, over several sessions, to increase efficacy.
~FEMALE SHAMANIC TRANCE
“The intelligence of the body is positively miraculous. Equated and identified with the body, women are specially blessed in Shamanic work. A woman shaman, like a spider spinning, must learn to lead from the womb.”
-Vicki Noble,Shakti Woman
Honor the deeply felt tug of your intuition with this gentle, yet powerful immersion into your Divinely Feminine Trance State. Within you is the ancestral DNA of all of your lifetimes. Think how much wisdom you have accumulated this time at ‘Earth School.’ Imagine being able to step into the ‘yes,’ of your inner knowing that transcends our modern-day understanding of time and space. With the teachings of the Female Shamanic Trance, you will learn how to channel in guidance from past, present, future and concurrent lifetimes to better support, inform and heal the karmically manifested situations in your life. This is all about you and your ability to trust in your own Divine Knowing. No one else has the keys to this particular ‘medicine.’ Depending on the comfort level, this particular topic may take several sessions. Getting to know yourself better will be a lovely by-product of this work. Yet, an even more powerful gift will be the invitation from your higher self to trust and love that powerful medicine woman within.
~FINDING YOUR SPIRIT ANIMALS AND GUIDES
“Wild Woman is the health of all women. Without her, women’s psychology makes no sense. This wild-woman is the prototypical woman…no matter what culture, no matter what era, no matter what politic, she does not change. Her cycles change, her symbolic representations change, but in essence, she does not change. She is what she is and she is whole.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves
How often do animals appear to you? Are you the type of person that always notices the hawk or butterfly? Perhaps a jaguar comes to you in your dreams? Our Animal brothers and sisters have much wisdom and guidance for us if we can open up our minds and hearts to listen. This isn’t a new, or a new-age, phenomenon. Shamans and healers have been connecting into the grace and empowerment of our animal family for millennia. You can too. Maybe you already do…Getting quiet to hear the instinctual and intuitive teachings from our Animal Spirit Guides, Power Animals and Totem Animals is a welcome gift, and they have much to say. Together, we will access your guides and develop a mutually understood language through expressive art, journaling, and meditation. This topic is suitable for all and can be fun for any age group.
~SHAMANIC DREAMING AND THE WILD WOMAN WITHIN
“In the ancient world, dreaming was sacred, providing an opportunity to touch the spirit world and obtain advice, direction, and healing. Throughout history, dreams have been seen as avenues to the spirit world and ways of getting Divine Guidance or sanction for certain actions. Clearly, if it were possible, all women would take a break from the normal routines to do our sacred dreaming.”
Vicki Noble, Shakti Woman
Our dreams are very important. Human beings have sensed this from the dawning of time. Today, our fascination with dreams is reflected with countless books on the subject, different modalities of psychology and psychotherapy to decipher meaning, and a myriad products to help us deepen, control, remember and interpret our dream state. All of this, coupled with the sometimes confusing, cryptic, or frightening content of our dreams, can seem a little overwhelming. Shamanic Dreaming is not something that can be taught quickly. Creating a shamanic relationship with your dreams can offer you a new perspective on the potent content gifted nightly from your unconscious. Together, we will create a playful atmosphere to explore the messages presented to us in our dreams and process ways in which these messages can be helpful in everyday life. This topic can be useful for everyone and is suitable for many different age groups. With ceremony, fun activities, and easy steps to expand dreamscape consciousness, connecting into our dreams can offer insight, support, and validation.
~SHAMANIC HEALING CIRCLE
“I know that when the kundalini moves in me, she is sacred and not dangerous; she is alive and so am I. My sexuality, my healing prowess, and my abundant energies are all part of the same gift of the Goddess in my sacred body. The body is more than a sensual receptor, more than a physical vehicle, it is an instrument of superconscious awareness with a direct line to the soul.”
-Vicki Noble, Shakti Woman
Encounter a new layer and level of awareness when you begin to communicate with your body as a transmitter of spiritual information. Music, drumming, chanting, herbs, oils, candles, and other sacred objects all assist with this multi-faceted experience of traveling within to access your soul’s natural desire to heal. Relaxation and peace are a guarantee with this gentle unfolding of your higher self’s nurturing and nourishing wish to offer you wisdom about your health and well-being. You are your own ‘guru’ for this process. The messages you seek will come from you and to you when you intentionally step into the space of the healing circle. Depending on the comfortability level and understanding of the materials presented, this topic is usually most meaningful when shared with close friends and loved ones, and is most beneficial when experienced over several sessions, or combined with other topics.
~PATRIARCHY AND MATRIARCHY
“Together, with the empowerment of the Sacred Feminine, let us reaffirm what is needed from the Sacred Masculine, as well as to offer guidance to broaden the views of the potential for a ‘Healed Masculine’ energy to abound. This profound concept is an ‘energy’ rather than a gender. It is not about having answers. It is about allowing a curiosity that will lead to self-discovery. We all have Masculine and Feminine attributes and tendencies to honor and express. The wisdom and possibilities for healing, to be felt internally and on the Macroscale, are endless when we think about a balanced expression of accepted inner-knowing that transcends the ‘bodies’ we were born into.”
Karen Kiester and Keith Johnson, Sacred Masculine: Contemplation Tools for your Journey
The Patriarchy, and its wounds to both men and women can be perceived as an out of balance expression of the archetypal masculine energies. Therefore, no one gender is at fault, yet everyone is responsible to work towards a more balanced, more equitable, and more blissful state of being. Kick start this process with an internal voyage to discover consciously and unconsciously held beliefs in regards to your own valuation of the masculine and feminine principles. With a dynamic history lesson that highlights women’s experience form the Bronze Age to the Malleus Maleficarum, create your own healing journey to nurture humanity as you boldly claim your right to Be Seen and Be Heard. With this topic, embrace your sexuality, your intuition, your interdependent strength and define your own authentic spiritual system as a woman today. This subject is most impactful when explored in a way that honors each participant’s comfortability with the material. Sometimes several sessions are needed for the most transformative experience.
~PLEASURE AND RADIANCE
“The experience of one’s own divinity is not an intellectual occurrence. It is not something someone else can give you. It is a bodily experience that- for a woman- is activated when she is turned on. Turn-on happens when she takes her own pleasure, an experience that women have been taught to avoid for the last 5,000 years, and makes it her priority above all else.”
-Regena Thomashauer, Pussy: A Reclamation
Guilt and shame are lovingly transformed with this powerful awareness of our blissful birthright. By honoring and invoking all aspects of our beings to come forward, together we will cherish our body’s natural abilities to provide pleasure and delight. Release attachment to the distractions that keep us bound up in ‘ordinary’ life and ecstatically bounce into the non-ordinary realms of radiance and joy by seeing, owning, and claiming our laughter, orgasms, tears, shadows, and sensuality. This topic is best experienced over one or two sessions and can be done alone or with a small group. Don’t let the subject matter pique your interest and then turn you away in fear. Once you bravely dip your toes into the waters of Pleasure and Radiance, you will find an enchanting pool of deliciousness waiting to envelop you….Reminding you of what a sexy, beautiful, and deserving Goddess you are!
~SACRED SEXUALITY #1-Herstory
~SACRED SEXUALITY #2-Sacred Union
~SACRED SEXUALITY #3-Forgiveness and Bliss Embodiment
~SACRED SEXUALITY #4-Womb Cleansing and Igniting Passion
“Sacred Sexuality is about love- not merely the positive feeling between intimates- but an overwhelming reverence for all embodied life on whatever level of existence.”
-Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., Sacred Sexuality, The Erotic Spirit in the World’s Great Religions
Much can be said about this topic! Yet, talking about sex barely scratches the surface. Why stay in our heads and keep applying the same linear based logic to the divinely feminine and shamanic experience of female sexuality? We deserve so much more! And, when we can fully experience Sacred Sexuality, and how our sexual life-force benefits the entire world, we can understand more deeply how our authentic expression of sexuality and sensuality fosters and nurtures all life. Step into this space and explore the pro-female sexual perspective of our ancient ancestors and ancestresses with imagery and herstory. Allow yourself to break free from the unconscious and conscious wounding patterns holding you back from intimacy with art and journaling. Sing and dance your way to forgiveness and purification as you find the freedom for your creative and erotic expression. Understand how your passion-less days translate to passion-less nights by channeling wisdom from your Higher Self. Perhaps connecting deeper into your sexual self is in order. Maybe just releasing the hurtful and misdirected teachings that so many of us have been wounded by is more what you are looking for. Whatever the reason, listen to your Soul and explore this subject matter. Typically there are four sessions involved in exploring Sacred Sexuality however, more may be in order based upon each person’s unique needs. These are also great topics to share with partners and loved ones. Remember, the female orgasm, which has nothing to do with procreation, is an ecstatic essential in the toolbox of the modern-day Creatrix, aka- YOU.
“The most important factor in your spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional well-being is your connection between your own sexual energy and your spiritual nature. Many of you have suffered from a disconnection from your sexual energy, the true source of your power, and we ask you, with all our collective hearts, that you begin the journey back home to love, sex, and healthy power beyond your imagination.”
-Ananda through Tina Louise Spalding, Making Love to God: The Path to Divine Sex
~SACRED WOMEN’S HEALING CIRCLE- Trauma Release
“The wounding of the Feminine Archetype and how it has affected us on a personal and cultural level is one of the most urgent and important psychological challenges facing women today.”
-Massimilla Harris Ph.D. and Bud Harris, Ph.D., Into the Heart of the Feminine
Understanding trauma wounded neurobiology can be a wonderful gift for those of us looking to explore deeper meanings behind human behavior, especially our own. Each time we experience a trauma, and that can look and feel differently for each of us, our brains accommodate, and our unconscious drives shift. Even if we had lived in a perfect environment from conception onwards, our cultural context has so denigrated the Feminine, that every human being has suffered a deep wounding. This subject and the powerful release from an informed and educated perspective offers transformation and freedom for all. Cutting edge neurobiological and epigenetic research couple nicely with our genetic propensity to crave ceremonies and rituals for healing. Where better to create this sacred space than a circle, held by the energies of the feminine to support, comfort, and nurture us through this process. This topic can be explored during one session, or many, as the work is profound.
~A NEUROBIOLOGICAL Understanding and Esoteric Healing Practical for Conception & In Utero
“The child within you wants to find a home.”-Angelika Werkstetter
At the moment of our conception, we possess a fully actualized soul. Science and modern-day research seldom recognize this time of our existence and the concept that our neurobiological hardwiring can be affected while in utero is very new. However, the study of Embryology gives us much insight into how these early fetal experiences create the foundation for our Nervous System. Because these early weeks of our lives are not given the attention they deserve when trying to understand the psychological implications of ‘why we do what we do,’ the socio-cultural context for subsequent dysfunction tends to be one of ‘get over it.’ When it comes to trauma, and the feelings of isolation that accompany it, these early wounds from our most vulnerable time can create the unconscious belief system that we are at fault or broken. The truth is, we are not. We hold the potential for inherent perfection and the highest form of conscious expression within our Divine Genome. How do we turn it on? With compassion, attention and a gentle understanding of how to energetically clear the blockages from this time of our lives. With a combination of a Trauma-Informed Care perspective and Esoteric Energy Work, this potent healing experience will take you back to recreate the story of your conception, in utero experience, birth and first few years of life. As you step in to parent your inner child in the exact way that you needed and deserved, insights will occur, physical shifts can happen, and a newfound sense of self-love will come forward. This topic is powerful and extremely beneficial for close relationships, usually shared over one to three sessions, depending on personal choice and need.
“We don’t need to chase our Shadow. It is always right there….right beside us. We need to turn and embrace it with love and awareness. “- Angelika Werkstetter
~MATURE MASCULINE #1-Archetypes
~MATURE MASCULINE #2-Shadow Poles
~MATURE MASCULINE #3-Healing and Embodying the Actualized Masculine Energy
“We need to take very seriously the disappearance of ritual process for initiating boys into manhood. In traditional societies, there are standard definitions of what we call Boy Psychology and Man Psychology. There are carefully constructed rituals for helping the boys of the tribe make the transition to manhood. By disconnecting from ritual, we have done away with the processes by both women and men achieved their gender identity in a deep, mature, and life-enhancing way.”
Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette, King, Lover, Magician, Lover
Understanding the psychological contributions of the Mature Masculine archetype is beneficial for everyone. Just as all of humanity embodies aspects of the Feminine, we also share an embodiment of the Masculine energies and principles. Jungian perspectives, as explained by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette in their book “King, Lover, Warrior, Magician,” gift us a new contextual framework to compassionately appreciate the four Immature Aspects of the Masculine, the four Mature Aspects of the Masculine, and the sixteen corresponding Over and Under-Identification Shadow Poles that relate back to each. It sounds like a lot, right? It is, but this wisdom is crucially needed in our relationships today. From the viewpoint of a strong and empowered Feminine dynamic, empathically hold the Masculine energies and love them into being so that our family systems and our entire Earth Family can reflect the healing, connection and spiritual awareness required for our world to survive. For mothers of boys, daughters of fathers, wives of husbands and virtually any person on the planet, this topic of study is advantageous if you seek to lift the vibration of the human experience and call in a new paradigm for collective maturity and growth. Best experienced over multiple sessions, exploring the Mature Masculine typically takes 3-6 sessions and is great for individuals, couples, and small groups.
“That which used to be more or less unconsciously shared by everyone- like the process of developing a mature masculine identity- we now must connect with consciously and individually.”
-Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette, King, Lover, Magician, Lover
~SACRED CONCEPTS #1&SACRED CONCEPTS #2
“When we open up, let go and trust that things are safe and we feel confident, it affects our sexual selves. When we release shame, or even better, never gathered it, it affects the depths of our sexual interactions. When we trust our gut instincts, it affects how we interact sexually with others. When we can expand our hearts and feel vulnerable and raw, it affects the sanctity and cleanliness of our love for others. When we learn to speak, or sing, our truths, our sexual interactions have even more integrity. When we see our partners, not just what they represent to us, we begin to make love to them, not an ideal. When we meet gently, after doing this work, we can come together wide open and into the light.”
-Christine Laplante, LMHC, Sacred Not Secret
This invigorating combination of Sacred Concepts balances and connects the wisdom of our Chakra System, our Psychosocial Development, our embodiment of Sacred Sexuality and ultimately heals and activates our Inner Divine Blueprint so that we may be of service to our world. Working with the Eriksonian Stages of Development and how they correlate with the Energy Centers of the body offers a bird’s eye view into the delicate developmental processes of the human psyche. Discover where blockages of creativity originate. Explore how relational functionality can be reimplemented into all of your relationships by releasing the wounds of the past. Fully open to your blissful potential and allow the Kundalini Energy to rise, unencumbered throughout your body. All of this is possible and it can be facilitated in a joyful, interactive, and interesting way. This topic, along with the educational and spiritual material presented, is great for everyone. It couples wonderfully with the other curriculum subjects of Sacred Sexuality, The Mature Masculine, Trauma Release, and the Esoteric Energy Healing Practicals. This subject works great for individual study, as well as with couples and small groups. Perhaps you feel like there is more for you in your process of self-discovery, or maybe you would like to deepen the intimacy of your relationships, or it could be that some intuitive nudge is telling you to dive into these Sacred Concepts. Listen to all of that inner wisdom and get in touch! This work is transformative, healing, and filled with possibilities for newfound inspiration and awareness.
~THE WOMEN OF THE WELLS- Re-storying the Myth of Womanhood
“The Call comes when we break or are ready to break. Some of us may hear the Call sooner, others later. But whenever it happens, wherever it transpires that we find ourselves on an edge, out of our element, out of our skin, there is something in us who still hears, no matter how deeply buried.”
-Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted
Our stories are powerful. Couple that wisdom with the ‘Ritual of Performance’ and you have a gigantic opportunity for connection and healing. No matter how many different personality types or life experiences that are out there, I guarantee we can find a common thread when we sit down and authentically, creatively communicate. What connects us will always be stronger than what divides us. We just need to remember that! Through an engaging and interactive creative process, this topic taps into your true being, your authentic self, and allows for your story to come forward. Believe it or not, in about 90 minutes, a script can be formed, and your story can be turned into a unique piece of theatre. This topic is fantastic for groups large and small and no experience or prior relationship between participants is necessary. Utilizing intuitive guidance, artistic freedom, and your own deep well of inner wisdom, this process is organic, original, and unanimously enjoyable. Together we will laugh, cry, share, and mirror the intrinsic strength present within every human being. This topic can be done as a single session, coupled with other topics, or can be spread out over a few sessions depending on how long you would like your script to be and the intended production values for the reading, or performance.
~MEDICINE WHEEL, PLANT WISDOM AND THE HONORABLE HARVEST
“In the old times, our elders say, the trees talked to each other. They’d stand in their own council and craft a plan.”
-Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
Our connection to nature and our beautiful Mother Earth can offer us new a perspective on our abilities to have compassion and empathy for all living things, especially ourselves. By evoking the ancient wisdom of the Seven Sacred Directions, this ritual connects us deeply to our past, our present, and our future. Start with a conscious desire to listen to the wisdom of our Plant Brothers and Sisters. What does their medicine have to tell you? Learn the generous and life-sustaining teachings of the Honorable Harvest. Walk around the Wheel of Life and receive the answers you have been seeking. We are animals, after all. Our bodies are fine-tuned to receive the gifts that our natural surroundings have to offer. Get out of your head and sink deep into the landscape of your ancestral knowing with this profoundly needed connection to our natural world. This topic is wonderful for families, groups large and small, and for individual study. It is most beneficial when experienced outside, however, if medical or physical issues prevent you from going outside for extended periods of time, this ceremony can be facilitated indoors. If sitting and quietly listening to the symphony of Mother Earth’s divinely trained orchestra sounds like something you might need, get in touch and plan your Medicine Wheel experience. You deserve it!
~THE TIBETAN DAKINI WISDOM
“One form of liberated sexuality available to women today is represented by the Dakini in Tibet. The Dakini is an icon of liberated energy, spiritual freedom, and the untamed spirit of nature. She is the feminine in a much larger sense than any archetypes carried by Western Culture for at least the last 2,000 years.”
-Vicki Noble, Shakti Woman
I first became aware of the Dakini Wisdom when I read the book that is the inspiration for the entire Divine Mommy University Curriculum, “Shakti Woman.” This book had me weeping and dancing for joy all within the same page. I soon got in touch with Vicki Noble and went to study with her in 2018. During the one-on-one time with her, I learned much more about the Dakini and how they can influence, guide, inform, and enrich our lives and relationships. This topic, when collaboratively shared by me, is really just scratching the surface of the Dakini teachings. When I studied with Vicki, she asked me to practice her teachings on the Dakini for at least one year before sharing them. I did, and as I put this topic together, I created an experience based on what I had learned from Vicki which includes mantra, soul-based collage work, education on the five Dakini Families, and personal exploration into the Dakini directions, colors, aspects, symbols, and healings. This liberating and empowering material is perfect for individual study or group work and is applicable to both men and women. As a wonderful keepsake, you will create your own Dakini Collage, channeled in from your higher self.
