As women we have a unique power
of creativity in our reproductive systems. That power is used not
only to create new life, but also to bring personal projects into
being. However, that energy can be blocked by physical, emotional,
or spiritual trauma to the pelvic floor and the female organs. In
this course for women, we use guided explorations, movement and hands-on
exercises (all done with clothing on) to heal the pelvic floor, including
the vagina and uterus, places that often hold our deepest wounds.
These wounds include rape, abortions, sexual abuse, childbirth tearing
and scars, self-esteem issues and negative images about our femininity.
Because self-knowledge is important, scientific and anatomic information
will also be presented, as well as ongoing self-care through yoga for the pelvic floor and abdominal massage.
Rarely does a course
offer the opportunity for the depth of healing that women
desire. In these seven days you will experience whole new
possibilities for renewed feminine energy, greater health,
and a deeper sense of pleasure in being a woman. We will spend
time exploring nature and how our connection to the earth
can deepen our connection to ourselves.The week will culminate
with a special evening of nurturing at the Esalen natural
hot spring baths.
In addition to being extremely profound for women on a personal level, this course is valuable for healthcare professionals, or anyone wishing to learn non-invasive
techniques to heal women.
been a week since I returned from Healing the Pelvic Floor
at Esalen and I'm not certain I can coherently write about
it yet. Wow...wow...wow. What an amazing class. What an
amazing group of women. What an amazing teacher. It wasn't
just a good class - it was profound.
I have never been very comfortable around other women,
preferring the company of men. Men always seemed safer
and more predictable to me. But last week as I rediscovered
my pelvis, I began to feel so safe and so comfortable
with the women in my class. And soon I felt safe enough
to just relax and revel in being feminine.
I realized that I never learned how to enjoy being female
as a young girl. My mother fervently wished she had been
born male; her brothers got to go so many places and do
so many things that she couldn't do because she was a
girl. My mom grew up to believe that being female was
a trap she couldn't escape from. Males had all the power
and all the fun, according to mom. Being female was drudgery
- and dangerous as well. The world was NEVER truly safe
for a woman.
Oh contrare! Now I know how mistaken
my mom was. I know it in my core; my pelvis knows it in
a way far beyond words. Being female is luscious and juicy
and powerful and hot! Being female can be safe and full
of joy. Being female is a blessing and my female body
is a miracle.
Thank you, Suzanne : -))
