Lead women's circles, workshops, and one-on-one sessions.
Help women to feel safe & gain trust in their female body wisdom. 

 

Women have the power to breathe life into our disembodied and disconnected world.

How can I belong intimately within myself and to life itself?
 How can I thrive as an embodied, sovereign woman?
How can I support women to find their own answers to these questions?

Studying & embodying themes that include female body intelligence, trauma awareness, shadow work, nervous system health, somatic dance therapy, the female nervous system, cyclical living, the erotic & sensuality, somatic facilitation & pleasure-centred leadership. 
However, the skills, teachings and techniques are secondary to who you will become as a person.

"This program was everything I was looking for, and was also everything I needed in ways I didn't even know. I am SO grateful for who you are as a teacher, Maanee, your passion and your dedication to this work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Rachel,

The Organic Feminine Principle lies at the heart of this training

 

The Organic Feminine Principle is the compass that guides us towards our natural selves, beyond the confines of the patriarchal programming that has infiltrated our bodies, nervous systems, and the collective female psyche.

This principle moves us beyond narrow, restrictive notions of femininity to reclaim the wild, natural tapestry that is life in a woman's body. 

At its heart, the Organic Feminine Principle is about embracing our innate female body wisdom. It encourages a rekindling of connection and trust in our cyclical nature, recognizing the messages of our nervous systems, and valuing our sensations and emotions as crucial sources of guidance and information. It invites us to celebrate our sensuality as a profound, life-affirming force that connects us deeply with ourselves, with our people, and the world around us.

Regardless of the stage of life you are in as women, the organic feminine principle invites you to return to a natural, embodied and truthful way of living. 

A remembering of what it means to be free in our bodies as women 

 

The organic feminine invites women to slow down, feel and listen to what is true, beyond what we are told is true from the outside. Truth beyond self-abandonment in order to belong. Truth beyond the constructs and programming we have received about how to be, what to do, how to look, how to feel, how to heal, how to love and how to be loved. Truth beyond an idealised image of how we think we should work, communicate, parent, make love, speak, dance, breathe and be as a woman.

This training invites us to actively remember and inhabit this principle, strengthening the legacy of free, embodied, and powerful women, liberated from patriarchal and misogynistic paradigms. We do this not just for ourselves but for our future generations and for the Earth itself.

Reclaiming the Organic Feminine Principle is more than a personal journey of remembrance; it is a form of embodied, sacred activism. We place love, connection, and liberation at the heart of our lives. Through this centering, we both enrich our personal experience and nurture the healing and flourishing of humanity and the Earth as a whole.

This training invites you to transform the concept of "being the change we wish to see in the world" from a mere idea into a profound lived experience.

No matter our age, the body story we live or the unique experiences we hold, we can all be leaders in our own unique way!

 

 

Through 7 modules, we will explore 

Module 1: The Organic Feminine 

In this module, we  discover the unique intelligence of the female body and nervous system.  By reconnecting with our bodys' natural rhythms and cycles, we gain access to a profound source of embodied intelligence offers clear guidance in our daily lives.  

We will also begin the enquiry into who we are beyond the confines of patriarchal influence, challenging restrictive cultural narratives of femininity.

Through feminine embodiment and sensuality practices, we'll rekindle our connection to the wild, natural tapestry of living in a female body. 

Module 2: Trauma & The Nervous System

In this module, we explore somatics; the inquiry into ourselves and the world around us through the language of the body.

This practice involves dropping into a field of embodied intelligence, tuning into the impulses, messages, movements, and sounds our bodies communicate, thereby becoming intimately familiar with how our bodies express truth. We do this by bringing awareness to the sensations, feelings, emotions, and narratives expressed by our nervous systems. 

Equipped with these foundations, you'll learn how to work with the four nervous system responses—fight, flight, freeze, and fawn. You'll receive practical somatic tools to maintain emotional safety, stay connected during disconnection, and process challenging sensations. 

Module 3: Somatic Shadow Work

In this module, we will explore how to work with the shadow (the unconscious), where the hidden, rejected & orphaned parts of ourselves live.

As a group, we will practice integrating these exiled parts back into our conscious awareness. We will acknowledge our very human needs - to belong, to be seen, felt, understood, accepted and loved. This can be profoundly normalising and validating and an important part of holding space for others as they travel though similar material 

Why step into the hidden? ultimately, this frees us be ourselves. without needing to constantly chase safety and validation externally, which essentially disconnects us from our embodied aliveness. 

Module 4: Somatic Feminine Intelligence

In this module, you'll learn to access grounded presence, intimate connection and free expression as felt experiences within your body.

We do this through somatic dance, therapeutic erotic dance, and non-linear movement practices. We also explore breath, touch, sound, and movement as gateways to deepening self-connection.

Additionally, we learn knowledge about menopause, menarche, the power of the luteal phase, and the interplay between sexuality and the nervous system. These elements collectively deepen your connection to your own freedom and aliveness.

Module 5: The Shadow Side Of  The Feminine

 In this module, we face the complex and often hidden layers of conditioning that we as women have inherited from patriarchy.

We look honestly at the layers of oppression around our sexuality, menstruation, pregnancy, ageing, motherhood, gender roles, body image, power and other aspects of life. 

With attuned awareness, we recognise how we have lost touch with our freedom & aliveness, how we have become subordinate to this paradigm, and how we perpetuate it ourselves.

We face these things, not so that we can shame them within ourselves, but rather, to become aware of them and discover our embodiment outside of narratives that were never ours to begin with.

Equipped with deeper awareness, We will come back to living life in relationship to our authenticity & The Feminine Principle, beyond these limited & distorted structures.  

Module 6: Trauma Informed Somatic Coaching & Facilitation

Somatic coaching & facilitation connects the client with the body & the nervous system to discover the truth that lies within. 

In this module, we will decode the unspoken emotional narratives, bridging the gaps where words fail, to cultivate long lasting therapeutic change.

You will learn how to guide clients to access embodied safety in the presence of strong emotions, become deeply present to their bodies, discover, address and process their emotions.

Meeting feelings in this embodied way enables your clients to address the root cause of their challenges. This leads to fresh perspectives on life and the freedom to empowering new choices. 

Using the trauma-informed lens, you'll learn how to identify trauma and what to do when it arises. So you can feel confident in the knowledge that you can handle what ever comes up in sessions. 

  

Module 7: Accessing Your Genius

This module invites us to put down the constant striving/pushing to become the "best version of ourselves". (What a relief!)

Instead, we welcome the profound understanding that it is who we are, rather than what we do, that defines our leadership.  

We go beyond the "leadership to-do list" to embodying the essence of leadership, through the fabric of our bodies, interwoven with pleasure practices. 

Embodied leaders naturally radiate clarity, love and the desire for inspired transformation. They can't help but draw in and move people.

You will also learn how to harness the power of your own story to inspire women, and how to structure your own wisdom into powerful group workshops & 1-1 sessions.

"If you want to connect with yourself in a deep, meaningful, and loving way, please take this training. This course has helped me to connect deeply with myself and to my aliveness. This training was a game changer for me and my womanhood, motherhood, personhood & relationships. 

It has been the most effective softening serum for me physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically. I have a new intimacy with myself and also with my partner and child. 

Now I navigate my inner world and outer world with more trust, discernment, grace, resilience, love and fun!"

Anne, USA

"I am a different woman than I was a year ago. I have a more loving, sensual relationship with my body. I react less from old trauma and triggers and instead respond from a deep trust in myself. My eyes are wide open to the often subtle effects of patriarchy, misogyny, and capitalism on my beliefs and behaviors. 

As a mid-life woman, I feared aging. Now, I am excited and eager to explore and expand myself in every direction possible.

I have found new purpose in guiding and witnessing other women – and myself- to feel safe and free within ourselves and within the larger world. I trust in life more than ever!"

Elizabeth , USA
