The Urgency for Sisterhood


So, hopefully you have all been as glued, as I have been, to the Governor Patterson story that has been ripping through the headlines these days. Yes, I believe he should leave office. Yes, he is not fit to govern. Yes, he even makes Elliot Spitzer, (who left office under the scandal of hiring a prostitute) look like a better, less offensive choice.

Who knew we lived in world where we weigh politicians by their incrementally different level of unconscious bigotry against women? And all of that concerns me. Keeps me up at night.

But it does not concern me nearly as much as the story behind the story. The story behind the story is a 5,000 year old conspiracy, which we must eradicate, in our lifetime. It is a conspiracy to keep women small, and powerless. And for women to use their influence with one another to put each other down and stifle and silence one another, rather than support, or stand for each other. It turns us away from each other rather than have us link arms, join forces, voices loud and strong, and sing, on top of our lungs, on behalf of one another.

Patterson knows women’s bigotry against one another, and used it to his advantage. He asked two women- his press secretary, Marissa Shorenstein, and another state employee, Deneane Brown, to contact the domestic violence victim, Sherr-una Booker and ask her not to appear in court. And they succeeded. And she did not appear in court to defend herself or ask for protection.

Currently, we live in a world where women are consistently put down, ignored, defiled, and denigrated. That’s bad. But more than that, it is a world where sisters are not behaving like sisters to one another- which is way worse. This is not a world I want to live in. Nor a world I want you to live in. Nor a world I want to raise my daughter in. And we have the power to change this, immediately.

There is an invisible epidemic of self-hatred, self-doubt, and self-denigration amongst women, right here, right now on this planet. A woman who truly madly deeply outrageously loved herself would never conspire to stifle and threaten a Sister and obstruct her ability to receive the protection she deserved. I mean, c’mon girlfriends- this woman was beaten up by her boyfriend– and these women told her to shut up and go away because the Governor says so. We are talking about a Sister, here.

This would only happen if you were a woman who had no self-esteem, no self-worth, and required the approval of a man to know your value. But we live in a world where women have an epidemic of self-hatred and self-doubt, rather than self-love. That is why I created the School of Womanly Arts Mastery Program. It is the only place on earth, the only school on the planet where women can check their self-doubt at the door, and learn the arts and tools of living the gorgeous rapturous power of self-adoration, which generates the most powerful consequence of Sisterhood that has ever existed. Here women shout from the rooftops on behalf of one another, celebrate every single accomplishment with outrageous enthusiasm, and stand for one another fiercely–especially when we each have those moments of faltering in our intention, and conviction, like Sherr-una was having when Marissa and Deneane called her.

Imagine with me a world where, instead of women calling each other to diminish one another, we each call each other out to our greatness, our glory, and our power.

So, this is me, Mama, calling you out.

Calling you out to recreate the world with me.

To stand for yourselves.

To stand for Sisterhood.

To stand for the woman you deserve to become.

To stand, together to recreate the world to celebrate women, celebrate sisterhood, internally, locally, internationally, right here, right now, in our lifetime.

Come and take my Mastery Program this spring.

Become part of the Pleasure Revolution.

I also, invite Sherr-una, Marissa, and Deneane to come, as my personal guests, to the School of Womanly Arts Mastery Program, starting in just 18 days.

It’s time for us to create a new story.

With so much love and pleasure,

Mama Gena

    Thank You Mama Gena!!

    For shining your light so brightly that all women who read your words through books and the ones who meet you have no other choice but to shine too!! Your words have always resonated as true and your wisdom has infused an immediate sense of hope, joy, prosperity, and sisterhood. I’ve given your books to other kick-butt goddesses, like myself, who embody the revolutionary spirit, who have given generously of themselves to others in hope of creating a better world. I’ve been a secret admirer of yours since your pre-Mastery days and now it’s no secret 🙂

    Lots of Love, High-Fives, and Booty Shaking!

    Lai Har

      SG Lai Har- You are a fire cracker! I love that you’ve let the cat out of the bag 🙂
      Your self love is a beacon for all women! I’m so glad I’ve got you in my corner! The Pleasure Revolution counts on Booty Shaking Goddesses like you!
      With so much love and pleasure,
      Mama Gena

    Mama Gena!
    You rock! I feel this so deeply. My life’s mission is to help women remember the powerful vortexes of creation that they are. I agree that sometimes we women are our own worst enemies and I am doing everything I can to change that, starting with myself, my writing and my blog. It is a challenge though! That’s why we women must keep at it, day after day: loving ourselves, filling our lives with pleasure and being role models to other women to do the same. We need a New World Order!
    I applaude your elegant generosity in inviting the two women to your workshop.
    Power to the Goddess!

    After resisting your teachings for years on end, I finally had to take the plunge… and yes, it is true,
    a round of Mama gets a gal in touch with her essence, her core, who she is, and the light
    that burns brightly.. how it works, why it costs what it does, hey, I resisted, but this I do know……
    that I live life from a different angle…..forever grateful….

      Darlings, I am sooooooooo loving the chomp this blog has created! It is the exact level of fire we need to get things moving….

      @Penelope- Dear SG Penny- I’m forever grateful for you! Thanks for plunging with me!
      @Tine- THANK YOU for turning other women on with my book! THAT’s Sisterhood! And hey- never say never 🙂
      @WhiteChocolate- I’ve always preferred dark chocoloate myself- but you are seducing me to the intoxicating flavors of “White Chocolate”. Thanks for the poem. Glad to have you as a revolutionary!
      @Louisa- you are so right- there’s NOTHING we can’t do when we stand together in our pleasure….
      @Ellie& Kathleen- we’re getting closer to these three women…if anyone knows them, please, please get them in contact with the school. They will be my guest in this Mastery program.
      @Kari- You are one hot sexy genius for getting out- go kiss those girlfriends of yours that stood for you- and that hot new hubby too!
      @Lisa- Your tears are righteous! And, no need to move sister! We’ve had lots of DC Goddesses travel in for Mastery…DC could certainly use a lot more juice….

      Keep it coming sisters…and pay it forward….
      With so much love and pleasure,
      Mama Gena

    That would have gotten him a jail sentence in my country.

    I believe I’ve bought around 25-30 copies of your books and given them as presents to fellow sisters who needed it.

    I’ll probably never get around to your master classes and frankly – life is pretty good even without that.

  • Rose March 3, 2010, 8:59 pm

    Amen, Sister! It’s time to unite in a new paradigm!

  • White Chocolate March 3, 2010, 8:08 pm

    I’m so excited by this powerful force that’s brewing! You open your heart and mind and things start happening. Thank You so much Mama Gena! It’s time these dudes were busted. Along with Mastery, please use this book as your bible.

    These words from a poem in this book move me. It so points out that we must follow our intuition.
    I am a woman
    who understands
    the necessity of an impulse whose goal or origin
    still lie beyond me.
    Rock On Sisters, White Chocolate

    fantastic call to women! i recently attended the “reinvention” evening in nyc and intend to join all of you for the next mastery class. this call however, was the ONLY thing i felt was missing that evening. i have always said that if women stood hand in hand across the globe….there’s nothing we couldn’t do together, including ending
    useless wars. aren’t all our resources needed for the GOOD of the planet vs DESTRUCTION? Rock On Ladies!!!

  • Golda March 3, 2010, 7:07 pm

    Beautifully said!

  • Melissa Hall March 3, 2010, 6:52 pm

    YES! Thank you so much for such a powerful call to Sisterhood!! For things to change we women must come together and be the change. You are doing powerful work in the world, Mama. Thank you!
    Many Blessings,

  • Ellie St. Denis March 3, 2010, 5:07 pm

    regena – your invitation to the “patterson pussies” was brilliant, as are you!!! shall we anoint them with pussy juice upon arrival? i think YES!!!!

    xoxo bush

  • Kathleen March 3, 2010, 4:29 pm

    I am so bowled over by your invitation to all of those women to come to your class. All three need a copy of your book. We so need to stick together. It is the only way we can change things. Hugs to you , Mama.

  • Lisbeth March 3, 2010, 2:29 pm

    Honey, no one – but no one- can put it where their mouth is like you, Mama!

    This is a travesty, and I pray love, light and heavenly sexual fire over all of my fellow sisters today. United we stand, dance, writhe and wiggle. Let us bring love and healing to this magnificent, luscious planet. Hold hands and flow love. Awaken SIster Goddesses, and unite!

    Rapture and bliss to everyone who reads this. XOXOX

    Love to you, Mama.


  • Kari March 3, 2010, 2:15 pm

    Every woman deserves to be able to stand up for themselves and scream at the top of their lungs if a man does that to them! I know, I was in a relationship like that for 11 yrs. before I had the balls to prosecute and get the hell out! I knew I deserved to be treated better but my church kept telling me to stay and pray for my husband….well I did and nothing changed …. so I did! It was only because I had some good sisters standing behind me, giving me the encouragement to do so! We girls need to stick together and take care of each other! Now Im married to the greatest guy for me and couldnt be happier!
    Love ya all !

  • Lisa March 3, 2010, 2:10 pm

    I read this and wept.
    Today is the day I choose to love and adore my fellow sister goddesses, and to not judge them.
    Mama, your books are in my bag at all times, and I will be at your next class. Don’t make me move to NYC, I love DC too much…but I can come for visits!

  • Janine March 3, 2010, 2:01 pm

    Hi Mama,

    You don’t actually go into the “story behind the story”. I think I know what you are hinting at, and it has long been a thought I’ve had but I have yet to meet someone else that had the same thought and I desperately would like to know more information about HOW this happened.



  • BSG Suzi Banks Baum March 3, 2010, 2:00 pm

    I crying.
    You said it.
    I believe it.
    I am living it.
    And I urge every single woman on the planet to speak up.
    Let’s get loud.
    Love you MG.
    Yours, S

  • Deborah March 3, 2010, 1:58 pm

    Beautifully put and so true. I just wrote about this same topic on my blog, but from the standpoint of JEALOUSY. We are repeatedly being presented with this great opportunity to rise to the occasion with love and partnership for our sisters and ourselves. We need that calling out Mama Gena and the more women that speak up, the more that each woman will have the courage to join in! Thanks for a great and inspiring article!
