Loving Our Bodies & Ourselves Unconditionally.
Now that we are in midlife, it is more important than ever for us to reclaim sovereignty over our bodies, self-image, beliefs, hopes, and dreams.
May 30, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM PDT
About the Event
Join Dr. A. in the upcoming mini-workshop for The Women's Wisdom Village.
In this gathering, she’ll explore why women must love their bodies and themselves unconditionally if they want to live their most authentic and fulfilled lives.
We have grown up in a patriarchal culture that has told us who we should be, what we should do, who we should do it with, how we should look, what our goals should be, and what our value is as human beings.
Now that we're in midlife, it is more important than ever for us to reclaim sovereignty over our bodies, self-image, beliefs, hopes, and dreams. This does not mean striving for another version of perfection or denying our faults and foibles. It means living consciously and mindfully in the world, re-tuning ourselves to the natural world, listening to our intuition, minding and setting boundaries, honoring our needs, and feeding our creative and intuitive processes. It means speaking our truth.
By diving into the work of brilliant women such as Marion Woodman, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Dr. Maureen Murdock, Dr. Ginette Paris, Dr. Jeanne Shinoda Bolen, and more, we’ll explore what it means to tap back into our archetypal feminine nature, begin to release our addiction to perfection, and increase our understanding of the feminine body and psyche as sacred in all its ages, shapes, and forms.
We'll explore our cultural addiction to a warped and misaligned ideal of feminine beauty and purpose to see how it has wounded the feminine soul. And we’ll discuss strategies to begin loving ourselves and our bodies unconditionally.
Join Dr. A on a remarkable two-hour journey encouraging you to reclaim your essential feminine consciousness and begin the inner quest to Love your Body & Yourself Unconditionally.
“Women do have a quest at this time in our culture. It is the quest to fully embrace their feminine nature, learning how to value themselves as women and to heal the deep wound of the feminine. It is a very important inner journey toward being a fully integrated, balanced, and whole human being. . . . It follows no straight lines. It is a journey that seldom receives validation from the outside world, in fact the outer world often sabotages and interferes with it.” Murdock
“Soul, to me, means ‘embodied essence,’ when we experience ourselves and others in our full humanity - part animal, part divine. Healing comes through embodiment of the soul. The soul in matter is what I think the feminine side of God is all about... The feminine soul is what grounds us; it loves and accepts us in our totality.” Woodman
“The Virgin Artemis, archetype of a femininity that is pure and primitive, is becoming important once more. For a long time, we have had no representation of absolute femininity, that is, one defined neither by relationship to a lover (Aphrodite), nor to a child (Demeter or Mary, mother of Jesus), nor with a father (Athena), nor to her husband (Hera). In fact, femininity is rarely represented in the absolute but rather in relation to some other reality of a masculine world.” Paris
“These days, most postmenopausal women are not ‘retiring’ as in disappearing into the woodwork and being neither seen nor heard; nor are they ‘retiring’ or metaphorically going to sleep. Quite the contrary. Older women are reinventing themselves, growing in awareness, and saying their piece.” Bolen
