(für Deutsch klick hier) In our rapidly changing culture, claiming and defining who we are as women, as feminine, spiritual and sexual beings, as lovers, mothers, friends and partners has become increasingly difficult and confusing.
It sometimes feels we are being put before a painful choice: to either be strong, respected, powerful and able to take our own decisions or to relax, enjoy relationships, enjoy being open, receptive and feminine. One side makes us feel strong and independent, but often we pay the price of becoming cold, hard, lonely and losing the touch with feeling ourselves and others. The other side gives us the ability to feel deeply, to relate and melt and to receive love, but if it is there alone, it can make us feel heavy, over-emotional, needy, dependent and not able to move, do something or take decisions.
In order to lead a fulfilling life, fueled by purpose and passion we need to find the balance between these male and female principles. Both men and women have a feminine and a masculine side. The question is only whether you know when to use which and how to switch from one to the other. It requires awareness, consistent practice and willingness to let go of the old patterns and stubborn, obsolete beliefs to find the balance between these male and female qualities. For us women this includes learning to respect and honor the Divine Masculine in men. Please remember, men are also struggling to define their new role. The work we do on ourselves will greatly improve our relationships when it comes to truly living our female essence.
My own struggle with defining and reclaiming the unique feminine gifts and capacities, as well honoring both the masculine and feminine sides and learning when to use which has led me to offer an unique seminar with my dear friend Puja Lepp, an internationally renowned therapist, that will take place September 28-30 in Berlin.
In this seminar we’ll get real on issues around relationships, body-image, food, sexuality, spirituality, money, motherhood, sisterhood, power and grace. With specific Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, Mudra, Meditation & group therapy work we will reconnect to our Divine Feminine and to our inherent power and grace. Please read here another blog on sisterhood that relates to this topic.
I truly hope you can join us, and please forward this to your girlfriends who might be interested. More details and registration please go to: http://yoga-more.de/2017/12/29/die-goettin-in-dir/
