Emergency Brags from Mama Gena


I am still riding the tailwind of your exquisite outpouring of gratitude from last week’s Thanksgiving Blog. Good Goddess, I’ve got it good. I am so rich and full from this sisterhood we have created, that I simply must brag right now and let you in on all my recent adventures as The Pleasure Queen.

I have THE most incredible brags…

I brag that in the past month, the Pleasure Revolution has been taking the world by storm.

It all started with my first-ever live, international seminar in Copenhagen. Check out this video footage from my travels to Denmark and Iceland…

I am still flushed with gratitude for the privilege of watching the Pleasure Revolution expand internationally.

I brag that two weeks later, we turned South Beach upside-down with the best ever Worldwide Sister Goddess Reunion in Miami.  I was struck down by the extreme Sisterhood we have cultivated.  We are a community of women who don’t just have one another’s backs, but fling each other forward, towards our dreams, in the grand roller derby of life.

After Miami, I flew to L.A. to attend Sir Richard and Eve Branson’s Rock the Kasbah event, where I got to see the legendary Mary J. Blige perform, and meet the man himself.  This is my year for meeting more of my heroes and heroines.

From L.A., it was back to NYC where I gave two virtual lectures at The Learning Annex–you can watch them here and here. I brag that later that week, I had the most fantastic Thanksgiving holiday, starting with brunch at Per Se, where I had the complete honor and privilege of meeting every woman’s best friend, Gayle King, who just began her new gig at CBS.  Be sure to tune in and support this sister, as she unfurls a new chapter in her life.   And Maggie was home for Thanksgiving weekend!  We took my Mom to see “Anything Goes” on Broadway.  So much fun, so much joy, so much overflowing thanks.

I brag this week I fly to San Francisco to give my Ted talk, as part of TedxFiDiWomen. One week later, I’m heading back to L.A. to serve on the hosting committee for an Evening of Gratitude at Fred Segal. It’s going to be a Sister Goddess-studded event in honor of SG Janine’s Flawless Foundation, featuring artwork by SG Tara Dixon.   And then, I will be attending a board meeting for NextStep Fitness, the foundation created by Janne Kouri. NextStep is a national nonprofit that brings the latest in fitness, health, and wellness to individuals living with paralysis and other physical disabilities.  It is so deeply satisfying to serve.

From Copenhagen to Miami, East Coast to West Coast, this is cruising at the speed of pleasure.

Your turn.  Whatcha got?  Give me YOUR top bullet brags!  It doesn’t have to be extravagant—even the tiniest drop of goodness in your life is worth celebrating.

With so much love and pleasure,

Mama Gena

    I brag that I created a kitty bed from a photo I saw in a catalog. I didn’t use a pattern, just crafted it from a rough sketch and it turned out even better than I imagined. I also brag that I didn’t listen to the little voice in my head that told me bragging on myself is unladylike and here I am.

    PS. One of my desires is to get Mama Gena on Oprah or OWN. I’m so excited that MG connected with Gail. Thank you GPS — I take it as a sign that the SWA is on its way to being shared by Oprah. YES!!!!

    Feeling the ecstasy of these brags! I brag that I spoke truth to power in a classy, confident way on behalf of all the women in my workplace. I brag that it was scary as heck and I did not care. I brag that once I did this, confirmation of my talents and skills and courage, and of ME as a PERSON — AND amazing opportunities in other settings! — have begun popping up from unanticipated people and places. I brag that I have a date this weekend with a man who knows I am a catch. Letting go of fear in that work situation has changed my life. Thank Goddess for Mama Gena and our tribe and for the courage to claim our power!!!

    I brag that my heart has been broken OPEN in LOVE in my work, and we’re changing the way we do EVERYTHING. I brag that we open ALL our meetings now with TRINITIES!

    I brag that I am eating clean, living clean, and living large. I brag that my biggest work right now is in being still, moving my Chi and following my pussy.

    I brag that Mastery spun me around, turned me inside out and upside down and I giggled til I sobbed the whole time.

    I brag that my heart is bubbling over with gratitudes and desires.

    Have I got a brag! This morning, after forgetting all about it, I got a confirmation that my paper (ours really as I have a great co-creator) has been accepted to a huge international conference this summer. Lots of back story summed up: this is such an incredible and amazing gift and opportunity! Even better, I will get to visit with my dearest SG Hels! I’m so so so giddy!
    Also, I brag that my cute little yarn biz had some great exposure this past weekend thanks to a lovely friend who used it as a prop for her wares at a sale!

  • SG Lovely Lisa December 1, 2011, 12:23 pm

    I brag that I am feeling richer than ever and working less than ever, allowing more principals of the swa to guide me..

  • SG Sharra December 1, 2011, 12:06 pm

    Wow this was the most exciting video I’ve seen. It tops your “Firework” and that’s some feat! I love seeing our gorgeous global goddesses on the edge of their seats soaking in the message! The video made me homesick–not being with our tribe monthly in Mastery. You were so in your pleasure I could feel it. The pictures of Iceland are majestic! Thank you for this mornings injection of international pleasure and revolution! Sincerely with love SG Sharra
