A Place Called “Rapture”


There is a territory, a location, a place, where a woman comes alive.  Where she is effortlessly powerful and radiant and flush with her own beauty.

What's your streetcar named desire?

What's your streetcar named desire?

It is a place called Rapture.

None of us were taught how to find this place.

Or where it is.

In fact, we were actually taught to run the other way, and stay far, far away.

That Rapture was dangerous.

And could get a girl into trouble if she wasn’t careful.

In fact, we were all taught that it was the darkest, most treacherous, and most reviled part of womanhood.

Many of us grew up quite scared by the depth and breadth of that capacity within us.  I know I did.  But it is a part of the soul of woman that deserves to be both explored and mined for the hidden treasures it contains.

Rapture is the precise cliff we jump off, in Inner Circle.

Why?  Well, it is the “worst” parts of woman that I am the most excited to encounter.

There is some raw longing that brings a woman to Inner Circle. And at the start of every cycle, each woman brings an image or object to represent her longing and what she wants to create (pictured above).

It has nothing to do with doing. It has to do with a state of being. This state of being is the Pleasure Revolution in action, but there is no action. It’s a paradigm shift. It does require some willingness and it does require some surrender to a part of the nature woman that is not valued by the collective, but it is the eternal piece of you.

So, I wanted to celebrate these 75 women who chose to boldly go where no woman has gone before, and take that jump off the high dive, right into the heart of Rapture, with me.  We had our first Inner Circle event, last month.  And I am still riding on the gorgeous wave of these extraordinary women who have stepped forward with so much courage, to dive deeply, 20,000 leagues under the sea, to collect the rare pearls that have always been their birthright.

What an extraordinary country that we live in, to be able to even have a place to explore these matters, in this way, in community.  I am so grateful.

With so much love and pleasure,

Mama Gena

    To Deborah: concerning Personal Rapture vs Biblical Rapture…I too was raised in a religious home, Southern Baptist, and it took a long time to get over the training that personal pleasure is a no-no and that everyone else’s needs should be priority over your own. Being a provider, caregiver, etc is wonderful but if you don’t take care of yourself, if you don’t value, respect and enjoy your own personal being, then you’re not rejoicing in yourself as being God’s temple and you cannot honestly give of yourself to others. We are made in His image to be loved and treasured. The Personal Rapture that Mama Gena is referring to is nothing to be ashamed of. Approach the idea as truly rejoicing in just being alive and being part of a community, whether online or in person, who appreciate your uniqueness and the beauty of your soul.

    Joining you in the rapture all the way from Latvia. I am riding waves of pleasure in my own little ways and this blog took me on a giant wave of happiness – I feel like a wind-surfer trying to keep up with the energy emanating from all the incredible things you do in IC. Thanks for posting this. I will try to look for an object of a cute little house because this is essentially what I am searching for -a place to call my home. XOXO

    The rare pearls, the voice- the words and ideas and expressions of a fully alive woman have become my daily sustenance. They have become that which lifts me out of my despair or sadness, they lift me out of the quandary of being a woman today- aware of my capacity and longing for my own place in the sun. So, with over 5 years in the SWA, I can tell you, I know what to do when fear dances with me.
    I turn up the music.

    Adoring you. Sending all my love to the current Inner Circle.
    Yours, as ever,
