This is it.
This is the moment I’ve been waiting for since the conception of the Creation Course last year.
In just 48 hours we will all be converging at the Warwick Hotel on the Champs Elysees, as we begin our total immersion in the city that was, and is, the engraved invitation that called the Courtesan into existence.
As we’ve been sharing about the upcoming trip, I’ve had people ask me, exactly what IS the Courtesan’s Journey? And what had me build an entire program around it?
Have you ever felt that the Hero’s Journey, the monomyth for how “man does life,” just does not quite fit the woman that you are? The Courtesan’s Journey is the antidote, the custom-designed monomyth for the feminine, designed to give a woman navigational certainty as she charts her course through every phase of the adventure of life, designed by her desires. The Courtesan’s Journey is where the human and the divine within take hands and re-create us into the women we were born to become.
I first introduce this to my students in the Mastery classroom. continue reading…
So, the Saturday before last I had the most incredible, beautiful, amazing Intro event of my life.
Over 300 women showed up at our new Mastery venue, the French Institute, and cut loose.
New York City is still vibrating.
But that is not the half of it.
The half of it was the men!
I know, I know, you think that Mastery, and all of the programs at the School of Womanly Arts, are for women.
But there is this whole other course going on, this whole other experience, this whole other path, called the men of Mastery.
The men who the Sister Goddesses are married to, or dating, or…the men they meet and fall in love with during Mastery.
And for the first time ever, I had a panel of guys give it up on what it was like for them to experience Mastery, from their lens.
And I had so many women calling me, telling me that this was their absolute favorite part of the Intro, that I just had to share it with you.
If you ever wondered what might happen to your relationship as a result of Mastery, click on their names below to hear the recordings!
You will hear from husbands, boyfriends—even a guy who met his woman as a result of Mastery, and found there was something just different and extraordinary about her that he had to pursue…
Michael on the value of the Tools
Stan on love and intimacy
Jeff on success and confidence
Shaka on marriage and happiness
Mark on dating and passion
If you prefer to read rather than listen, here is a small snippet of my interview with one of the men of Mastery. continue reading…
You did it.
You got the job you deserved.
You slogged through and got the divorce you needed.
The kids are handled and thriving.
You make friends every time you turn around.
But why oh why does love—real true love, with an amazing partner—remain just out of reach?
What have we women lost, in our efforts to accomplish so much?
I came across your name on Mastin Kipp’s site “The Daily Love.” I am intrigued and am looking forward to meeting you on January 26th in NYC.
4 years ago this month I took a bold leap and left my 17+ year marriage. I packed up my things (and my precious 3 children) and re-started my entire life. continue reading…
It was just another cold December morning. I woke up, got the kid on the bus, went to spin class, showered, dressed.
I settled in with a gigantic cup of English breakfast tea, in my God Save the Queen mug, to catch up with my emails before the office opened. In my inbox, I received the most inspiring story from a woman who had written to me at 2 a.m. that morning.
I get gorgeous acknowledgments now and then from my grads, and I do not normally share them here. I tuck them away in a special box. But this email was too good to keep to myself. It was inspiring in every way a woman wants to be inspired. And I recommend that before you read it, you do what I did: make yourself a gigantic cup of tea in your version of a God Save the Queen Mug, print this story out, and sit down and enjoy the new 2013 fairy tale of a woman getting hers, creating hers, enjoying hers, exactly the way she wants.
As I lie awake at 2 a.m. this morning unable to sleep, I am overcome with tears of gratitude. I had to drop you a line. Today my life has changed in so many ways. I could only have imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be living the life I do today. Since first meeting you and the women at the School of Womanly Arts almost 4 years ago during Spring Mastery 2009, the changes in my life have been nothing short of a miracle.
Rewind to March, 2009. continue reading…
Do the words “I know you want me” fall flat on your ears? Like a thud. Clunk. Or even a halting screech? If so, you’re not alone:
What were you thinking?! I absolutely love you and the work that you do, but why would ever title your event something as trivial as “I know you want me”? Pitbull? He’s a former drug dealer who named himself after a dog. I expect you to empower me and inspire me in the face of this kind of misogynistic nonsense running rampant in society. I haven’t yet taken your class, but I’ve been going to your orientations for five years now, and I’ve always gotten something great out of them. You open my imagination and put me back in touch with the woman that I am. I’m 39, very successful, have a PhD in Economics, an amazing job, great friends. The one thing I don’t have is the epic love affair—but I’d never be so ridiculous as to walk around thinking “I know you want me” in order to get it. I can’t stand women like that. It couldn’t be more shallow. I guess my question is two-fold: Why did you, as intelligent and insightful as you are, pick such a useless and obnoxious title? And, could you please give me some advice that’s actually helpful in creating the relationship I want? continue reading…
