Bettered. Bested. Beyonded.

linderpix-danceDarlings,

There are those days, in a life, that you work for and towards with your whole heart and soul, that seem, sometimes, just out of reach.
I know those days so well.
And then, there are those rare and wonderful days in a life, where home plate slides right into you.
A good thing.
But I got bettered. Bested. Beyonded.
This past weekend, home plate got handed to me on a silver platter. 925. Engraved.
The launch of Spring Mastery 2014 was the highlight of my teaching career.

linderpix-ilovThe extraordinary assemblage of women was more than inspiring. I am still vibrating from the soaring altitudes we climbed together.
Soaring altitudes of sisterhood.
Sisterhood is not something we get taught as women. We have been taught not to trust women–that women are back-stabbing social climbing jealous detractors who can steal our men and take our jobs, and we have to be on guard, all the time.

And what I saw, felt and experienced in Weekend One of Mastery was the sisterhood redux of my dreams.
Lifetimes of annihilation melted into unity.
Discord into concordance.
Women standing for one another.
Inspiring each other.
Holding one another.
Recognizing the depth and breadth of the power of connection.
linderpix-BebeExperiencing the cell-changing power of sisterhood.
So quickly.
The lonely drought of estrangement for women ended with communion so deep and thirst quenching that it has already reached way beyond the walls of the School of Womanly Arts.
I cannot wait to see where we are going next.

I am so thankful to have the best team on earth, who made this magic happen.
And I am flat out on my knees grateful to have met and experienced the most brilliant, beautiful, radiant assemblage of women that I have ever encountered, in this Mastery 2014.

In so much love and pleasure,

    Therefore, when creating your online registration form you
    need to keep the following facts in mind:. One was asked to consume a DASH diet—a diet incorporating lots of
    fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods, and limiting red meat, sweets, and saturated fats.
    If no entries come up, try the search again, but delete some of
    the search criteria you have used.

    The first weekend was mind blowing or rather pussy blowing! I know I have not met everybody, but just being in the same room hearing and sharing, was exilarating. I now have a place that I can call “family”, sharing and not being judged. Thank you Mama Gena for paving this “pussy brick road” for all. Looking forward to seeing everybody soon.

  • Jane Wyker April 3, 2014, 3:19 pm

    This blog and these photos brought me to the same delicious feeling of ecstasy I experienced in my first weekend of Mastery in 2007. The indescribable feeling of joy and love that I see in these photos – the expression on your faces, the sway of your bodies, the connections amongst you. Shining and radiant!

    And as I sit here these years later, it only feels richer, for that experience does not fade. It only grows deeper roots inside creating more and more pleasure. More and more love. More and more strength.

    Thank you Regena for your brilliance, power and persistence. And thank you sisters for standing together for yourselves, and for all women. I stand with you, always.

  • Dana Lawrence April 2, 2014, 7:36 pm

    My heart’s desire was to fall into passionate love with my life. A path has been cleared and the veil lifted. My cells are reprogrammed, shame is dissolved. I am the light that lights the world. I am the Goddess now~
    Thank you for sharing your hard earned wisdom, opening the door and showing me The Way. I am profoundly grateful.
    I am, indeed, Wired for Love.

  • Meg aka Writer Babe April 2, 2014, 11:45 am

    I thought Mastery number three for me would be a tune-up on the tools and a chance to reinsert myself into the community in a more full way. WOW! NEVER before have I experienced deep in my body and soul the kind of energy transformation that occurred for me this weekend. NEVER before have a experienced sisterhood at this level. I’m seeing, hearing, and experiencing the tools in a whole new way — because of the glorious co-creation of the genius that is Regena AND the unbelievable community of women that came together this weekend. I am changed permanently and cannot wait to to fly higher and higher with everyone.

      Great update! I love these notifications. Now, if we can just get Google Voice that will be all of my icons on my main dock!I would also LOVE to see more Launcher Pro style icons like Google Reader, FourSquare, etc.

  • Jeyan April 2, 2014, 10:41 am

    I’m still digesting – reflecting the power beauty that so quickly surfaced …
    The biffing will have to begin so I bring this all back to me in to my being & power.. Hearing this a 2nd time feels like a truer sound as I wasn’t in the shock & awe of numbness that I experienced from my 1st Mastery… Someone mentioned ” drinking the kook aid”. I want to purchase this “kool aid” in cases!!
    Thank you for your brilliance

  • Caroline April 2, 2014, 8:13 am

    Words have been my professional life, yet I was struck dumb, one of the throbbing silent collection of cells, dissolving, reassembling, deeply touched by the siren call. I marvel at you, Mama Gena, who unerringly and unflinchingly leads into the uncharted with both delicacy and precision. How graceful you are. You have conjured the best of us and require nothing less than we join you. To all of you I seemed to ignore, thank you for allowing yourselves to be there and for your incredible, beautiful presence.

  • Michaela April 1, 2014, 9:38 pm

    AGREED!!! The love was palpable! Ready made! Just add nothing! So happy to be a part of this community. Grateful beyond words. Thank you for making this possible Mama Gena! xoxo

  • SG Mercedes April 1, 2014, 9:12 pm

    YES!!! walls were pushed on this first weekend of Mastery 2014! We are BESTED we are BEYONDED!!! I am so honored to serve in Team Pleasure with my daughter. WOW! This weekend went very much into deep communion, opened more doors and was more ecstatic than I could have imagined. I could see the changes and shifts already bubbling in the room! I think we may be experiencing a Quantum leap! I am so grateful and so blessed I am still singing and dancing to “HAPPY!” Because I am!
    REGINA you Rocked it ! I don’t know how you do it, but YOU DO IT Brilliantly and Exquisitely!!!

  • Lisa April 1, 2014, 8:55 pm

    It is almost impossible to articulate into words the magic that happened in that room this weekend. I’m changed, we are changed. Totally cellular! I’m still on high. Amazeballs!!!

  • SG Danielle April 1, 2014, 8:33 pm

    I am unsure of when this weekend will be processed through my cells… incomprehensible exhaustion is upon me as I try and simply let all that happened be my reality. It was hard. It was outrageous. It was hilarious. It was gut-wrenchingly painful. It was frustrating. It was enlightening. It was sweet. It was rough. It was beyond emotional. It was a whirlwind that I didn’t expect. I am praying I have the ovaries to live up to all that was given to me. I sat in a bathtub Saturday night and sobbed. I realized I don’t know how to BE a woman. But I know for certain that I will be shown the way here.
    With Love, Gratitude & Desire,
    SG Danielle

    This post and these photos brought a tear to my eye. This was an extraordinarily deep and meaningful experience for me that I will never forget. I can’t find the words to express my thanks, Mama Gena. And to all of the beautiful and generous Sister Goddesses: I bow to your radiance.

  • Laura Jacobs April 1, 2014, 3:49 pm

    I thought it would just be a refresher course from last year. NO FUCKING WAY. You were the most brilliant human I have ever witnessed. Every word every question every participant made the experience more brilliant than than all of the diamonds in the world. It is a privilege to witness

  • SG Anne April 1, 2014, 3:18 pm

    I knew Mastery would be very, very good as I came to it upon the recommendation of someone I trust, but what happened this weekend so far exceeded my expectations I am nearly swooning. Mama Gena and Estella’s gift to us appeased a deep-rooted angst in me. Where there was fear there is now fierceness! Love and a thousand thanks to Mama Gena and all my sister goddesses!

  • SG Vulvanica April 1, 2014, 1:25 pm

    Sooooooo much fun and sparkle. Mama lookin’ radiant. Bubbee lookin’ tasty. All the women lookin’ gorgeous and free. May it always be! XO

  • SG Ti Sealstress April 1, 2014, 12:59 pm

    I am so excited for all of y’all! Mastery changed so much for me and I’m taking regular dance breaks at work in honor of every sister goddess in the room and beyond. Thank you, Mama and Team SWA!

  • SG Simin (Erotic Powerhouse) April 1, 2014, 12:14 pm

    Elevated and opened up to a whole new dimension. Initiated into the divine feminine portal of healing within and leading up to my ancestry. And this was just the first weekend!

    So grateful to have taken this step in my journey. So grateful for you and your leadership, the risks you take, the depths you go to and the sacred container that you hold for us.

    So grateful for this experience.

  • Brett (SG Sam's brother) April 1, 2014, 12:14 pm

    Sounds like a pretty powerful weekend! Keep it up Goddesses!

  • SG Ilov April 1, 2014, 11:22 am

    I too am bettered, bested and beyonded. Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I feel. Thank you to all who worked to make this weekend an incredible experience. Thank you to all the amazing women who participated and shared their truth. And thank you Regena for your awe inspiring brilliance and your continued work in the pleasure revolution.

  • SG Melissa The Puss in Boots April 1, 2014, 10:35 am

    What a fabulous, fantastic weekend!
    Delicious, delectable, delirious – detonating divine mega tons of the most powerful feminine TNT.
    That is what a pleasure revolution feels like from the inside.
    I thank GPS that I made the decision to join at the 11th hour.
    Pussy always knows best.
    So proud and deeply grateful to be a part of the Sister Goddess community and see it continue to expand in the most exquisite way.

  • SG Genna April 1, 2014, 10:23 am

    When I am dancing my body glows and sings and delights on a cellular, spiritual level. Every second, every ounce of this weekend felt like that. Through every intense and tangled turn, I felt like I was soaring higher and truer. Only the power of sisterhood can elevate a soul like that, not only in moments of joy and hope BUT in moments of fear and despair.
    Mama Gena, you are a fucking genius!

  • SG Theresa (Fierce Mama) April 1, 2014, 10:19 am

    I really enjoyed every moment. Thank you Mama Gena and thank you to all the goddesses who shared and demonstrated through their very essence how we can support each other.
    Have a lovely day!

  • Sister goddess Wendy April 1, 2014, 9:56 am

    This weekend I drank the Mamagena Kool Aid. Not in a blind faith way but through my own felt experience. This weekend was deep and profound. You are masterful.
    I left the weekend with a new sense of self acceptance, self love and self admiration that I’d not felt before.
    I’m from a family where women tore me down and this weekend I felt the healing that sisterhood can bring and how the use of positive words to replace the negative ones can uplift and normalize.
    Thanks to all you wonderful women and to you Mamagena. I see the pussibilities for change are abundant.

    • Lisa April 2, 2014, 8:09 pm

      Well said SG Wendy,
      I too grew up in a family of women that tore me down. I never felt good enough to have been born. I felt like I was an accident that just happened. I have four sisters but never felt the love/ acceptance that I did this past weekend. I met so many SG & every single one was loving, accepting, & encouraging me on my walk. I also felt a sense of healing. I can remember a couple of times when I let my old self say things like what am I doing here, I am not good enough to be here or many of other old things I would say to torture myself. The nice thing was anytime I would start to think or feel this way, either right away or shortly after a SG would smile at me or introduce themselves to me & in their own way build me up. On the way home I pondered all the things that went on this weekend. I too felt a sense of healing and acceptance of myself. I am so glad I decided to push through my fear & the obstacles in my way to come last weekend. I want to thank you Mama Gena for your insight into starting this but also for your mom in supporting you & all the other SG. She really does give the best hugs. Which I experienced this past weekend. I cant imagine what is in store and how this will change my life if this was only weekend one and I already have a sense of change what will the rest of mastery bring.

  • Debra aka Nile Flowing River April 1, 2014, 9:47 am

    AND NOBODY does a gratitude better than Mama Gena. ALthough the above are pretty fucking great.
    There is not a cell in my body that is not in profound gratitude for each and every cell of each and every woman in that room this weekend.
    As I ended the weekend with 9 other AMAZING sister goddesses at dinner I knew that the presence of each one was Mandatory and it was that way in the course. THere is not one single woman that is not part of my heart and my soul sister hood. I want the next mastery to have 1000 so every woman on the planet can feel the love, support and beauty of every other woman on this earth.
    WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD THIS WOULD BE!!!!

  • Suzi Banks Baum April 1, 2014, 9:45 am

    “The lonely drought of estrangement for women ended with communion so deep and thirst quenching that it has already reached way beyond the walls of the School of Womanly Arts.”

    Blessings on the well to which we all go for nourishment…where, leaning over to dip our buckets in the glistening oval reflecting moonlight, we touch the skins of the ones next to us-empty, requiring refreshment, and together, we haul up our buckets. We are wet with wonder.

    What magic you create Mama, out of this thirst. My ache is slaked this morning by this post dripping with spring sap. Many thanks. Feeling the reverb up here.
    With love and ever, S

    • Chelsea Rose April 15, 2014, 11:47 pm

      Wow! You’re writing is so poetic, divine, delicious. Thank you for sharing! I can’t wait to someday attend mastery! I live in California right now but who knows…I know abundance is flowing to allow me to attend this event in the next year or two, I know it!

  • BSG Glitzy Cougar Karen April 1, 2014, 9:37 am

    Looking at these pictures, I have tears in my eyes, and after 4 Masteries, 2 years of Inner Circle, and years of team pleasure, you would think I would be used to this. Wow.

    Regena…brilliance. Ruth…”Happy” is the theme…Liz…the pics (wondrous)…and the team…Sarah, Lauren, Hannah, Donna, Omayra, Emily (and everybody I forgot…)

    Magic.

  • SG Luscious Robin April 1, 2014, 9:34 am

    Delicious. Thrilling. Moving. Joyous. Grateful to have been there. Grateful to be of service. Grateful to you for creating this beautiful, inspiring community.

  • SG Rachel 'Rampage Jones' April 1, 2014, 9:23 am

    Weekend 1 of Master 2014 was the most incredible experience of my life! The healing and transformation began in the first hour of Saturday morning. I am so grateful to have this shared experience with so many beautiful soul sisters.

  • SG Heather-Darling April 1, 2014, 9:18 am

    Life changing. Cell changing. Fucking glorious! Thank you Mama Gena.
