    Thank you so much Regena for responding to our posts! I feel like sharing w/you all that I see the face of woman changing rapidly in our world. And thank YOU Regena for having dreamed this and invoked it w/your visionary appetite.

    In the magazine section of my local library, I happened to see a “fiery bouquet” of this months magazines. On all the covers were women (as usual) but they were all TIGRESSES. They were all not as polished as the usual air-brushed crop. They looked like they’d just tussled out of bed with a new lover and they all had this look in their eyes-fierce-determined -wise and turned on.

    I attended the women’s teleconference in which Regena was the shining star.One fascinating subsequent follow-up email from the conference quoted the Dali Lama as saying: “It will be the Western woman who will save humanity. “The “magazine -women’s” eyes proclaimed this truth.

    I am grateful for Regena’s words, “When a woman is going for her pleasure, you will see a hero standing by her side.” Thank you Regena, for the precious break-through coaching you gave me. During that time, a latent talent in me blossomed forth-music. Thank you for encouraging me to head down to the West Village for “Pasta Night” song- writing work-shop w/Bob Dylan’s contemporary Jack Hardy who taught me the bones of song-writing craft. It has been about 5 years I have been- as the courageous Sister Goddess Julia Butterfly Hill says, “following the call of my heart.” I have not one but five heroes by my side, not the least of which is legendary 15-time Grammy-Award winning producer Phil Ramone, my producer. I followed my ravenous appetite for music and the joy and healing it gave me and I have attracted the best of the best on
    all fronts. I now know what it means to surrender to a desire and that a mission is a vision you surrender to-a vision and a mission way bigger than my sense of smallness and comfort and how only an appetite/vision of that magnitude resonates with the true largesse of the heart and one’s potential.

    One of the many magical miracles that happened on my music journey was this:I had this desire to live at the Laguna Niguel Ritz Carlton Hotel In California. Just for a few months. This would have cost around $60,000 but I had made friends w/a Ritz employee. Let’s call him hero #6. I told him my desire. My desire was quite potent as this was in the deep freeze of one of the coldest winters on record (2 yrs ago). He arranged for me-yup you guessed it- live at the Ritz for the whole winter for a few thousand dollars. They put me in an ocean front room and it was one of the most ecstatic and life-changing experiences of my life.

    Back to food! Two minutes away from the Ritz, was The Montage Hotel. OMG! I ate breakfast there every day. The terrace looked out over the glittering Pacific and I had the most awesome French toast with a shitake mushroom, wilted spinach and boursin cheese omelet and a side of rosemary fingerling roasted potatoes. (I’m raw 95% but this was this was my lux hotel breakfast moment.)

    I was so delighted by your shares and by my gratitude to Regena, that I wanted to share all this goodness with you.

    You all ROCK!

    Condensed milk dribbled through a cup of uber hot, freshly ground medium roast, coffee in a ginormous mug.
    Dk choc covered almonds.

    Chocolate body paint to do my own tats and enjoy removing them all by my delicious self.
    Did I mention chocolate??
    AAANNNNDDDD, loud music to rock my sweet adorable self to. Not a Wildcherry party without great sound.

    Oh, for privacy in a large family….ah, but they do sleep sometimes! I CAN DO THIS sneak THING.

  • SG Tiiu July 29, 2010, 4:09 am

    I should have a party to coffee! Freeze-dried instant Tchibo or Dallmayer mmmmm… With milk, or perhaps fresh whipped cream, and raisins at the bottom.. This has been my saviour late at night, when the kids are in bed, most of office work is done and the house is quiet. I know I should go to bed immediately, not eat anything, but there I am, with my coffee at 1 a.m. Love ya, friend!

  • louisa July 28, 2010, 10:29 pm

    I AGREE with S.G. Elizabeth McDonald!!! PF&W is a f a n t a s t i c experience! May I suggest the chef’s tasting menu/dish! And…. summer’s the easiest time of year for the whole raw experience! Bon Appetite!!!

  • wildkat July 28, 2010, 9:44 pm

    WOW! Genius post! This hits the spot and i want to share it with the whole world.

  • elizabeth mcdonald July 28, 2010, 6:49 pm

    Dear Regena,

    What you are doing w/, have done and will do are all wonderful and your divinely ahead of your time. (Luckily time is catching up.) Several years ago I went raw, food-wise and it is ecstasy like I’ve never known when it comes to eats. I read David Wolf’s EATING FOR BEAUTY which was so pleasurable. In the end of the book he mentioned the NYC restaurant PURE FOOD AND WINE saying, “A meal at this place will change your life.” When I read those words, they just went through me like electric jazz.I went and it did. I am a real foodie but raw is the most delicious.In terms of your corn chip affair, I got myself a dehydrator and make raw corn chips which are the best ever. In terms of the entenmanns, one of my former lover’s as well, head to PF&W and get your hands on a moon pie made by genius master pastry chef Janna. I love beauty. It inspires and moves me. I look younger and more beautiful now than I did 20 years ago. I love eating for beauty.

    The “moon pie experience”: (BTW decadent as this sounds, these foods reverse the aging process and burn fat off of you.)

    Thick custardy vanilla cream made of cocnuts, agave cashews, sandwiched between walnut/chocolate cookies and enrobed in dark chocolate. It’s served cold so it’s almost like a gourmet ice cream sandwich. The 1st X I tasted it I felt so ecstatic and deeply nourished and actually… moved that some thing we tend to think is so detrimental to health was singing and throbbing this profound life force and ecstatic taste into me.
    Another thing that inspires me is the intense beauty of other people’s bodies who have been eating this way for a long time. They and I exude a pure, angelic yet sensuous beauty.

    Love you,

  • SG Carissa July 28, 2010, 4:22 pm

    LOVE IT!!
    I totally have a thing for fruit leather. I’m going to buy a whole bunch, and plaster my naked body with them. Then i will slowly tear off little pieces to reveal delicious skin, and suck and lick other fruit-leather-covered places on my body. Maybe i’ll have a lover join me in the party.

  • Sister Goddess B July 28, 2010, 3:14 pm


    Your hair is looking absolutely amazing in this video ^_^. Loving it!

    SG B.

  • Auroracle July 28, 2010, 2:05 pm

    Well, as much as I love this idea I am very close to my fitness goal right now (though pleasure is still very much on the menu – hello, lobster salad for lunch! mmmm) so I am planning a party for my favorite snack foods & I am going to write them each a thank you note for having served me so very well over the years! Thanks for this assignment, Mama!

  • Janine July 28, 2010, 12:57 pm

    GENIUS, GENIUS, GENIUS – one of your best ever Mama
    Love love love it

  • louisa July 28, 2010, 12:27 pm

    Hey Everybody! August is the Perrrrrrfect Time for this!
    I just graduated my second year at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where Joshua Rosenthal (the founder) talks about the 90/10 Diet which is such a lovely concept. It’s about being conscious (not self conscious), in other words, it’s about being mindful 90% of the time and building in “total permission” to fall off the wagon 10% of the time! Then there are never any “restrictions” to inevitably rebel against. Manga Everyone & Bon Appetite! Sending Lots of Vitamin L(ove) Your Way Ladies!

  • SG Sherry July 28, 2010, 11:59 am

    This vlog really is speakin’ to me Mama. I have been battling my love of junk food forever but your idea is a very healthy way to deal with my desires to have my special treats, and my desires behind the special treats.

    I agree to the on the bathtub idea- that sounds scrumptious. I think I’ll do a party with my two favorite men: Ben & Jerry, LOL! Then get some Philosophy fudge cake chocolate bubble bath with white chocolate truffle bath powder and then enjoy my B&J “Mission to Marzipan” ice cream. – Thanks Mama for the great home work.

    Let the Celebrations Begin. Yeah, Baby!

  • Cynthia July 28, 2010, 11:58 am

    Ohhhh…this was good! I delight in sneaking a Hostess Cherry Pie in the car on the way home from the grocery store. Like a heat seeking missile, I head right for those little tasty morsels. I walk by and snatch one up with one hand awhile maneuvering the cart with the other. Baseball players would be jealous at the skill I exply. At the check out stand, as my item to her swiped, my little precious is put in my purse as not to be crushed by a careless bagger who can’t possibly appreciate how fragile a tender, sugar coated crust can be! The drive home is far too long (2 miles or so). Once one the road, I tear open the side and slip the pie half way up and take a bite. (This is where the strategy of preventing crumbs comes into play. No evidence of eating in the car down the front of my shirt, in my lap or on the floor! Yep…always thinking!)

    So getting my prize into the house….baby steps!

  • Sarah June July 28, 2010, 11:02 am

    SG Mama,

    I love the idea of a bath tub full of chocolate. Smearing chocolate all over my beautiful body.

    Watermellon has been my big crave this past month. While my body is soaking in chocolate, I will have a large picture of watermellon juice. I may even wash my hair with it.

    Alabama is know for peaches, so how about slices of peaches on my desk. Yum, Yum

    Let the pleasure begin,

    SG Sarah June

  • Randi July 28, 2010, 11:19 am
