Welcome to Spring 2018!
The inspiration behind this season of classes has been spearheaded by the work of two very different women with a similar message of empowerment, transformation, and self-compassion.
Regena Thomashauer (aka Mama Gena) is the owner of "The Mama Gena School of Womanly Arts" and author of several books including "Pussy: A Reclamation." She is a woman's activist, a pleasure revolutionist, and a powerhouse of turned-on living. I attended her 2 day Intro Event in New York back in Dec, 2017 and came home with the desire to imbed her teachings into my own classes. Here's Mama Gena delivering a Ted Talk in 2011.
I have also been transformed by the work of Bronnie Ware, a former palliative care worker and the Australian author of "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing." In this book, Bronnie writes about the most common regrets that the people she had cared for had expressed to her. Bronnie discusses the significance of these regrets and explains how, through conscious choices, we can address these issues positively now while we still have the time. After reading this book, you feel more compassionate and inspired to live the life you are truly here to live. Here is Bronnie delivering a Ted Talk on "regret-free living" in 2016.
