Happiness - Our Divine BirthRite!
I feel full lately because I am in absolute BLISS with my life. I feel as if now -more than ever is A BEAUTIFUL TIME TO BE A WOMBYN!! So much is happening in women's circles. We are opening up to the fact that our lives are divine and beautiful and worth respect.
No matter what you do in this world you energy is keeping this world running. Women tend to be that person holding it all together - making it all seem 'seamless' and flowing. We are a highly organizational breed of being! I find often that I have several dimensions to my life. I am not just a worker, I am not just a mother, I am not just a blogger - I wear several hats in my identity and I am always trying to give birth to another.
This theme of birthing oneself is in a lot of ancient matrilineal art. A woman in birthing position giving birth to another self. This not just some "cool" art or a past dead ceremonial rite - THIS IS US!
A friend of mine said the other day, "How do I know who I AM?" "How do I know this role I have for myself is who I am?" These questions are deeply profound for a wombyn because she may find the answer has been hidden from her for the convenience of others.
Whether you are a Wombyn or man these times are asking you to ask the most important question of yourself - "Am I happy?" If not, do you deserve happiness? If your not happy yet, what will complete the feeling?
Let's keep moving forward.

Life is good and really getting busy. I have been working on a few phenominal projects that are taking a lot of my free time but in a really good way!! Wombyn Studies continues to grow- we now offer FREE online classes now and the momentum of those classes is really taking off. Today, Marilyn Fontaine lead us in a beautiful exercise of gratitude in the workshop I AM THANKFUL. If you have time to join us - check it out- it is a fun time to connect with other like minded folks. All of it is completely online.
So, I want to announce another creation of mine - it is a compliment to Wombyn Studies and SistahGoddess. I have created my own TV station and it is called SHE NETWORK. I am very EXCITED because it will put together the work of a lot of Sistahs from around the world! I am still learning how to do everything but I did get up some initial content. I really want to thank my Sistahs who opened up their creative work to the SHE NETWORK- Soraya Jean Louis-McElroy, Sa-Roc, Simphewe Dana and Olowokande-Ame'ye India. I like having Sistahs around who just instantly support projects - it is just a good vibe!! I of course, did not get a chance to get to everyone I know AND that is what is beautiful - so many of us are doing phenomenal work!!!
I got today, that a large part of my purpose is bring Sistahs together - finding ways for us to grow closer, share our wisdom and feel nurtured in the essence of who we are -which is powerful!! I hope to hear from folks if they have content that fits our new SHE NETWORK. Short films, video, etc...
Take a look at the current loop of work. PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE drop me a comment either in the right hand side facebook box or the livestream chat box -show some love and leave some comments on what you would like to see. SHE Network is about Sistahs but for everyone to enjoy! Thanks!!!!

I was speaking with a friend the other day and she was witnessing the work I am doing with Wombyn Studies but wondering why I have not done a class of my own. I did have to look clearly at myself and see why I was in a holding pattern on offering my own class.
With a little more observation I finally realized that I need to give myself that final push. I needed that moment where it feels as if you are about to walk off the side of a 20 story building only to realize you have stepped off of the curb. I forever dance with the notion of being perfect when perfection does not exists in the way we see it. WE ARE PERFECT - the bumps, the curves, the blemishes add to our signature of self yet if we are aware of it we sometimes can catch ourselves comparing the truth of who we are to someone else...it is a deep process to catch yourself in illusion.
I sat down over the weekend and decided I was going to complete my e-book I started a few months ago AND I was going to offer a class! So, here I am launching my first course called RETURN TO SELF: A Juice Feasting Journey.
This class will be my 'tell all' about juice fasting. I have fasted regularly for over 16 years. During those years I have learned a lot about how to juice fast and KEEP your life in balance. Many people saw the results of my last juice feast when after 30 days I lost a solid 15 pounds. I was asked over and over again to share my secret for staying on a fast for so long without being depleted or getting sick. I actually worked and did yoga while on this 30 day juice feast! So, know that juice feasting about staying IN your life WHILE detoxing. YES, you can feel good, detox and feast on unlimited juice to ACHIEVE YOUR HEALTH GOALS!!!
The beauty of this first class is that it will be online. I will utilize the Wombyn Studies video chat room for our 'lectures/gatherings/talks'. A preparation course will be offered so that participants know what to buy in terms of food, kitchen equipment and ordinary household items. I will also give low-budget alternatives for those of us who are cash strapped. You CAN do this juice feast on a limited budget!
The information for registration is on my food blog at www.rawSistahGoddess.wordpress.com
The preparation class begins on Wednesday, January 12 or Friday, January 14. Either way, you get lots of info, support and my BONUS E-book on juice feasting!!! The fee for the entire program is $42!!!
Hope you join me!!!

Vision Boards - Birthing Your Dreams for 2011 and Beyond
January 2, 2010
***THIS IS AN ONLINE EVENT!!!**
go to: http://apps.facebook.com/wombynstudies/
..."Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true."
Do you have something inside of you that's been longing to be birthed, yet are having trouble seeing how it's all going to happen? No matter how big or how small your dreams are for 2011, they can come true. In this class, we will learn how to make a Vision Board, a visual representation of all your goals and dreams for the year (or longer) that you'd like to accomplish and see come into present-day reality. It is a great way to remain mindful of your plan and stay on task of actively creating your positive future. You will learn how to activate your Vision Board using your personal bag of Spiritual mojo through your intuition, your thoughts, your feelings, your creativity, and your words. This collaborative approach is very powerful, so be ready to shine your light SisStars!
