A Page from Mama’s Journal

Darlings,

For those of you who were not able to come in for or squeeze into our sold-out event last week, here is a page from my journal, the morning after.
It’s a little like being there…

Okay, you got me, sisters.
You got me good and hard and sweet and sacred.
You got me upside downside inside outside.
I unbound myself to you and you gave it right on back to me!!
I have never, ever shared such a personal story before.
It is because of our deep sisterhood that I was able to stand before you, with my story of heartbreak and triumph with my daughter Maggie.
Maggie was the reason I started The School of Womanly Arts, 13 years ago, and it was inspiring for me to see how she is still shaping me, and impacting the curriculum.
She is, now and forever, my firework!
We had sister goddesses there from all over the place—not only local goddesses, but women from Australia, Canada, Los Angeles, Portland, and Denmark.
And can I just share one of my favorite brags for the night?
One woman, Sister Goddess Gloria, who just signed up for The School of Womanly Arts Mastery Program, talked about how, as a result of simply talking with and signing up with the inspiring Ayiesha, broke her 10-year stretch of celibacy (after the death of her husband) with off-the-wall hot crazy sex!! She inspired everyone in that room to unbind!!! 🙂

And what about those Moller sisters? Sister Goddess Kate brought about 15 girlfriends, (almost two whole rows) on the eve of heading off on her “Freedom Tour,” where she’s taking a year to travel around the country in a little white Prius. So good. So grateful. I love women who stand for sisterhood so profoundly that they insist on “girlfriends, unbound!”
And her real sister—Sister Goddess Annie—went for a huge, crazy delicious “Yes!” of every inch of herself, that night—putting an end to her criticizing herself and owning her genius decisions in her career! Go Annie!

One of the most moving moments for me is when moms bring their daughters, or vice versa. That night, I got to meet the beautiful Sister Goddess daughter of Mastery grad Sister Goddess Sarah. She tore the lid off her desires, and had all of us, especially her mom, in tears. Tears of heartache, at how our culture limits a woman, and tears of joy, at how she began to see and experience her potential.

There were so many women there from back in the brownstone days. Sigh. Where all this beauty and splendor began.
I would never have been able to even imagine this night, back in those early days!!

It is so good to live unbound.
So good.
And so important.
I want you, me, every woman, to experience the pure full force of her potential, in her lifetime.
Now.
Right here.
You, with the body you have, the job you have, the relationship you have or don’t have.
You, unbound.
Without losing a pound, without getting more sleep, without changing a hair on your head.
You, unbound.
Living your fullness, in your lifetime.
Squeezing every drop.
Getting the tail you want, the money you deserve, the legend you were born to live.
It is six weeks ’til Mastery begins. We always sell out.
So, if you can feel my words penetrate you, body and soul, come join me.
It’s time to feel your power, your wingspan—unbound.

    MMMmmmmmm- this thread is a picnic basket of delights- left over from the feast, but really good all the same. I am SO thrilled to feel the energy rising before this next Mastery. My Little Sisters from last Mastery are bragging again, one is getting ready to join Inner Circle. Little Sisters from 2 years ago are popping up on Facebook, like the rousing of tulip bulbs under all this snow, the Spring Party is Getting Started!
    Go Mama! Love that Maggie, Love those Fireworks! Sparkling up in the Berkshires! S

    I sing Firework at least once a day, tears welled the second your video began playing at workshop. I didn’t know why–a release I suppose. I barely made it to the workshop, I was feeling so low but I did. Met with a sea of pink feathers and sparkly women I knew the moment I walked in that I was meant to be there. You can’t ignore the energy of 250 women of every ilk. A few women looked as weary as I did and some were just “a flickering”! Pink fabulous Mama Gena came in like a lightning bolt and I knew this was the way back to “me”. Mama Gena has a message that we women need to hear, one that we have forgotten. Her delivery is inspiring, she shared life stories and introduced us to women who needed to be unbound and who had been unbound. If I didn’t attend Mastery I’m lighter having attended workshop–I will see you at Mastery though. Thank you.

    it was one week ago, today.
    and – somehow, especially, with this gorgeous fresh snow fall, i still feel blanketed in the embrace of our sisterhood.
    gigi- i was thinking about you, that night! thanks for reading, and being inspired.
    and nicole- are you living in australia, now? i have a whole handful of your sisters!
    and twinkle- there would be nothing that would make me happier than seeing a whole ‘twinkle and friends’ section of mastery!! it was so good to meet you. thanks for coming up to me to say hi at the end!!!

    I was there…my light was low and dim, but I have been starting to shine more as a result of last Thursday. You made me realize that even though I am unbound in many ways, there was more to undo!! Thank you!

    I have been reading your book, The School of Womanly Arts, and telling my friends about you and the Mastery Program. I am planning to get some women, Sister Goddesses together to make it to a Mastery program.

    Thank you again.

    Hey Mama – can you please tell the woman (women??) from Australia that Lara and I would love to hook up. I thought that Lara and I were the one ones! Nice to know that the ground swell is building. Please forward her my email address.

    Beautiful … wish I could have been there to hear you speak, to feel your energy and get my pulse racing from the adrenaline that comes from your words.
