A few years ago I had an idea – I saw a place where women could get in touch with themselves and cultivate, create and remember their various facets and aspects. Part Mystery School, Part Sisterhood, Part Red Tent, Part Academy – all succulence, radiance and feminine beauty.
A place where women could learn to dance with their inner knowing, to re-wild their spirit and unveil their sensuality and grace.
A place for you as a woman to Remember who you are.
So often when perusing the internet, meet up groups and the like I find there are MANY spaces for women, however most of those spaces leave something out.
If I were to try to encapsulate the energy that I feel missing from many feminine spaces- it is the energy of the complement of the Masculine.
In most spaces devoted to women I find myself feeling like not only is the masculine not there (which makes sense – it is a feminine oriented space after all) but a huge component of what it is to be feminine is overlooked and ignored.
That component is our need and desire for interaction with men and masculine energy.
There are very few spaces that honor our desire to be engaged in a complementary dynamic with the masculine, while also feeding and nurturing our feminine essence as uniquely different.
The teaching, classes, and ideas posited by many women’s teachers seem to suggest that masculine energy is a necessary evil, something to be manipulated at best and totally ignored at worse.
It does not honor the whole of our being because it does not open to our various parts.
If I’m to mother effectively I have to be able to connect and honor the masculine in the world because every child comes from both male and female and will need to be be able to understand and interact in ways that honor both.
If I’m going to have amazing relationships I have to learn to respect and connect with my Beloved in ways that honor the his masculine energy and way of loving.
If I’m going to have a successful career I have to see the benefit of the masculine way of doing business as well as the feminine so that when I engage with it I am not contemptuous. In business to be effective I must find a way to connect and collaborate with the masculine.
If I’m going to delve into the Feminine Divine, The Devas, and The Goddess I also need to understand and honor The God and The Masculine Divine as Her counterpart and as no less Holy.
It was from this place of wanting women to be whole -to be our wholly actualized and divine selves that I have finally given birth to this baby – this precious being that has come to be.
This sacred space that I hope speaks to you, acknowledges you, feeds and nurtures you. A space that leaves no facet of your unique being behind. This is me sharing all that I am and every gift that I’ve been given.
