Notes from my dressing room

I am writing to you from my dressing room. It’s 5:12pm on Sunday afternoon, and we have just wrapped the first weekend of Mastery 2015.

Moments ago, I left a stage filled with dancing, hugging women, turned on and ecstatic, at a level I have never ever experienced on a first Mastery weekend.

This work is not for the faint of heart. It requires a new form of courage – a courage to overcome centuries of woman-hating with a deliciously defiant leap into self-love and celebration.

I witnessed the most glorious pas de 300+ women these past two days – reclaiming their power and unwrapping their radiance – not with fear and trepidation, but with the enthusiasm of a gang of preschoolers let loose on Christmas morning.

Towards the end of the weekend, one woman framed that this work gives her Permission. Permission to love her rage, her tears, her snotty nose, her turn on, her beauty, her passion.
Permission to find every side of herself to be perfect and magnificent.

So, Sisters, whether you were there or not —
Take permission.

Take permission to love, honor, appreciate and enjoy every drop of yourself — whether you are feeling cranky, or feeling sexy, or feeling sad, or lonely, or feeling generous and a-thunder with life. Even if you are feeling absolutely nothing.

Take permission to be exquisitely you, right now.

With so much love and pleasure,

Mama Gena & the extraordinary class of Mastery 2015

p.s. Here are a few shots from the weekend, by the one and only Sister Goddess Liz Linder. Enjoy!

    Magic is simply the best way to describe the energy in the Mastery room! Regena and her team are just beyond!
    It is a privilege to see how high you take us all!
    Eternally grateful.

    just exciting, thrilling and awesome to hear. Big embrace to you, Regena.

    Thank you so much, Mama!
    These pictures memorialize moments that will stay with me as long as I live, and will fuel the fires of my freedom and my desire at least that long, if not longer.
    They prove, once again, that ANYTHING is possible.
    I am so very very grateful!

    These pics are amazing. I’m feeling pings of sorrow as I look through these pics and remember my Mastery 2014. Only because I’m not in that room!! Congratulations to every single one of you. Mama will rock your world. Sending you all ridiculous amounts of permission. Do what ever the F^^% you want… I love when she says that. xo

    It was such an honor to be in the room for this Mastery (my fifth). The courage of the women, the wisdom (and humor) of Regena, the Palace staff, team pleasure, the BIG sister goddesses and 300+ littles. The room was packed with love, daring, vulnerability as the work does keep going higher and higher. Blessings, Regena! And thank you Goddess!!!

    So unbelievably grateful for this work! And the opportunity and time for integration of divine feminine on this planet, the healing of divine masculine as we embody more and change into freedom for all. Thanks Goddess!!!

    From all that I have heard, you just keep getting deeper & deeper into your wisdom – the expression, the contact …. it seems so hard to believe that you could shine more brilliantly…. but its true!!!

    Thank you for sharing a sliver of what transpired.
    I was on a yoga retreat at Menla Mountain House in Phoenicia, NY for the weekend. I felt the energy up there. Every branch reaching upward toward the star filled sky, every feathery snow flake that fell on Saturday and every ray of sun that beamed down on Sunday all seemed to be celebrating! Here’s to Mastery 2015!
    And here’s to permission.
    I wanted to share this quote by Emily Dickinson.
    “I dwell in possibility.”


    much love and gratitude-

      ps- I introduced the concept of “favorite frames” to the retreat. We all shared our favorite frames of the weekend over lunch and it was amazing. This work continues to spread…the ripple effect is limitless.

    Mama Gena and all Sister Goddesses wherever you are on Mother Earth,
    I was there and yes, this is my second Mastery. I want to let you know that the energy of this revolution is growing, can you feel it? Well, the room where Mastery was held this past weekend had no roof, no walls, no floor and no stage, we were levitating beyond my wildest imagination and I just wanted to take my Goddess Wings and fly! Fly into my deepest desire, most ecstatic pleasure and fun and connect with the Sister Goddesses in that room. I am pregnant with the force that exploded in Mastery 2015 this weekend. I am intending to give birth to a Goddess who dares to be happy, alive, prosperous and active in the world doing good for me and all those who come across my light. YES, I claim I have given myself PERMISSION! Alleuia, Ase and So Shall It Be Or Something Even Better

      This morning, I am in gratitude to Mama Gena and the Palace Gang, Team Pleasure and the Big Sister Goddesses for all that you are, all the Love you vibrate and the exquisite care you give…thank you a million times over!

  • Sister Goddess Raw Julia March 31, 2015, 10:28 am

    I am so excited to have a shot of me, Hope and Meryl in this group of shots! I see how my dress is and know it is that way because it was pulled up to decorate my pussy! I know with giggles and glee that just beneath the frame is my bejeweled pussy rightfully reclaiming it’s throne and place of dignity and honor!!!!!!!!!!
