👐🏽 For a long time I felt something was missing in my connections with women. Talking seemed to be the default way of connecting with girlfriends, but often I would feel drained after hours of conversation (talking can be tiring!). It just didn’t satisfy me on all the levels I longed to connect. .
Although I LOVE good conversation with the women in my life, something I really needed from my connections with women was TOUCH, yet I had NO idea how to approach this.
When I first discovered women’s temple practices through Awakening Women Institute it was like coming home.
It was the sweetest of nectars to both RECEIVE & also let loving touch flow through me as an offering (even if we’d never exchanged words!). 🐝
This totally dissolved the taboos I had grown up with around touch which seemed to be something reserved for lovers. It also helped to break through the spiritual upbringing I received that overlooked our human needs for the sake of spiritual development 🤢
I LOVE connecting with women in the ritual space of the temple, because we connect nonverbally & on many different levels – from the mystical to the sensual.
When I hold women’s temple spaces, I consistently witness women MELTING into each other’s touch.
This is something that feels SO natural, nurturing & deeply healing. It helps us shift from some of the shadows of the sisterhood such as competitiveness into true connection.
This creates totally new templates for how we relate to other women AND the kinds of women we attract into our lives – and also gives us the courage to initiate new ways of connecting that are deeply nourishing.
A couple of years back when I was going through a healing crisis I invited a group of women over & asked if they would hold & carress me. They did – in fact we all took turns. This was so empowering & totally life changing for me.
If you crave connection with women that goes deeper & wider than just talking, then I invite you to join me in my beloved temple space for one of my upcoming offerings in a beautiful ritual atmosphere.
Also, I’m curious – what do you long for in your connections with women??? Share away in the comments!
