The clear voice of women is essential to the healing of the world. As women we access our wisdom through our bodies. When we are grounded, connected and protecting and caring for our bodies, we are empowered to presence ourselves wholly and boldly. However cultural beliefs and biases influence how we relate to our bodies, often resulting in self-loathing, shame and grief.
Through slowing down, pausing and listening closely, we experiment with breath, sensory awareness, relational mindfulness, movement and touch to alter our relationship with our bodies. This creative process of shifting from inhibiting to inhabiting them and then, collaborating with the greater relational field supports the transformation from loathing to loving ourselves into wholeness, from shame to empowerment, from inadequacy to worthiness. Cultivating sacred partnership through self-compassion, we create a more intimate relating with ourselves and support a sanctity of self care.
Now, in touch with our inner authority and authenticity, we experience our enough-ness showing up in the world awake, vibrant, engaged, balanced, and deeply rooted in our unapologetic feminine. Our relationship with our self, our clients and our communities shifts. We cherish our bodies and reclaim our life’s purpose, our voices and take our rightful places in our lives and in the world.
