Review of the Journey of the Feminine For Men and Women
The Talmud explains the differences
between the masculine and feminine by comparing the brilliant
light of the sun to the reflective light of the moon, ever-changing,
with no light of its own. The light of the feminine, human
and divine, has been hidden yet has been given a unique mission
to heal and transform this world into a dwelling place for
the revelation of the Divine Feminine. How does this take
place? There is a journey of the feminine that begins with
Chava ( Eve) and culminates with Esther. Yet, the journey
is not over. This is an invitation to walk on the path of
those before us for men and women, to stand upon the shoulders
of Biblical women to be empowered to complete their redemptive
of The Feminine For Women Only

singing, dancing, dyad and group processes along with kabbalistic
teachings to highlight the unique spiritual gifts of women.
Participants will also gain an over-all perspective of the
beautiful nature of the feminine and her journey from Chava
to Esther with a greater appreciation for the contributions
they have made for humanity. And most importantly, participants
will be empowered to follow in their footsteps to do their
part in making the world a better place.
Intimacy For Men and Women, Singles and Couples
is very fun and yet also quite profound. Through kabbalistic
teachings and dyad exercises, men and women have an opportunity
to play with the polarities between the masculine and feminine
so as to increase attraction, passion and love.
Long before the holistic
health movement made the body mind health connection, Kabbalah
offered teachings, meditative and spiritual practices to
promote healing and well being. This workshop offers breathing,
meditation, kabbalistic teachings, and dyad processes tailored
to the individual needs of people present. Many people usually
report a reduction in pain, and stress and greater clarity
of purpose and focus in their lives.

There are mysteries about the
feminine within these archetypical stories of Biblical women that
are not widely known
and are important to know. Biblical women changed the world due to
their courageous actions. This new book, 'The Secret Legacy of Biblical
Women: Revealing the Divine Feminine" is unique in that it is
written by a woman and offers a voice for the feminine as embodied
by biblical women who tell their story from " their" perspective
in a way never done before. Through the format of an interview, Biblical
women not only answer questions about their lives, they personally
guide us to live more authentically and courageously. As archetypes
of the feminine, Biblical women identify and clarify for us the unique
differences between men and women and empower us to be more of who
we really are. As our collective spiritual mothers, they offer us
practical guidance on love, sexuality, relationships, suffering,
world events, as only a mother can do. Most importantly this book
invites its readers to reclaim the hidden and powerful path of feminine
spirituality that has been almost lost to women and men today.
These times beckon the feminine. Many women and men today are looking
for the new paradigm beyond feminism, one that encourages the
balance between the masculine
and feminine that is both complementary and harmonious. Kabbalistic wisdom
is an ancient yet timely road map for the spiritual transformation
and peace needed
now. That which we seek today has already been given. The stories of Biblical
women provide keys to the rise of the feminine needed to restore the balance
between the masculine and feminine.
With wars and terrorism increasing and Mother Earth erupting in
tornados, floods and hurricanes, the world is quickly now realizing
the limitations of masculine
power to solve our problems. A call for the awakening to the wisdom and heart
of the feminine has been uttered in our time throughout the world in a way
never heard before. It is not enough that women have entered the marketplace
competitive with men. It does not necessarily indicate the the feminine is
more embodied within them.
As if in response from a call
from the Divine Feminine Herself, hundreds of thousands of women
of all faiths and backgrounds
are now meeting in sacred
circles to share
their dreams, visions and prayer so as to bring more love and blessing
and the entire world. This new book, The Secret Legacy of Biblical Women
is a spiritual transmission and a powerful guidebook for facilitating and
the rise of the Feminine, human and divine in our world at this critical
time. " Words
from the heart enter the heart. " This book The Secret Legacy of Biblical
Women" is a revelation of the heart of the feminine that will open
the heart and be treasured by women and men, of all faiths and backgrounds.
