About the Womanly Arts
A Message from Mama Gena
Up until about 5,000 years ago, the voice of the Goddess was whispering in everyone’s ear, guiding us as we crossed over valleys, ground our grain, made love, kissed our children and gazed up at the stars. We are talking big-time megastar. Bigger than Oprah, Madonna, Barbra and Lady Gaga all rolled into one. She was the talk of the town, the headliner, the supermodel. Our ancestors partied with, worshiped and revered the Goddess.
It is only recently, a mere blip on the timeline of humanity, that we have despised, devalued and ignored the feminine. There is no time like the present to get back to our roots.
The thing is, there is this big-ass fabulous goddess in every woman. Each of us is born with the ability to live a life of pleasure and master the broad range of the Womanly Arts. These abilities, and the fabulous goddess in us all, may be buried alive, but they are still in there and intact. She is the greatest untapped natural resource of our time. And all of us have one!
Most of us just have a case of cultural amnesia—we don’t even know what skills and womanly arts to look for and cultivate. But I do.
The goddess in you wants to be known; to be noticed; to be experienced; to join her soul with yours; and to lure you, me, all of us, into the dance of life. The goddess in you wants to dance in a community of like-hearted Sister Goddesses. How’s that for an overture?
Far from frivolous, the Womanly Arts are the keys that unlock the door to your greatest desires, and usher them forth in their full deserved glory. Mastery of the Womanly Arts—being fluent in your full capacity as a woman—allows you to expand and enhance your voice, to spin gold, make your world glorious, and thereby doing the same for everyone around you.

At first glance, the Womanly Arts might have seemed like a decadent extra, chocolate icing on a chocolate cake, but as you are beginning to suspect this is not so, darlings! The Womanly Arts are your foundational materials. They are your navigational map that carries you aloft on your wild, womanly, worldly journey, helping you to create what you came here to create. It is so easy to live a miserable life, and it takes great skill to live a pleasured life. You have to be so disciplined. Pleasure is not for sissies. It is for the courageous. You have to have a lot of guts to insist on you pleasure. Most people are not encouraged to be the source of their own fulfillment and their own joy. They are encouraged to be victimized by the culture, or the circumstances, or being a woman, or their upbringing. The Womanly Arts challenge the status quo and force you to take responsibility to really get yours. That’s why we call it the Pleasure Revolution.
