Please check out our radical feminist friends at the Shodhini Institute for current workshops:
RECLAIM YOUR BODY! BECOME A SHODHINI!
You are invited to be a part of a new type of health workshop.
This is NOT a clinic or DIY Gynecology.
We are becoming Shodhinis to create an autonomous body of knowledge, accessible and relevant to feminist women, masculine of center womyn, transmen, and gender non-conforming individuals. In essence, we are developing our own radical health and sex education with a holistic self-help foundation. We are preserving the hard work of our predecessors of the feminist movement, our ancestors, and tuning into our own current experience.
*You will learn how to do self-examination, either in private with a facilitator, in a group setting or on your own at home. Each person will proceed at their own comfort level.
– Redefinition of the clitoris
– Orgasmic yoga
– Fertility awareness and natural birth control methods
– Vaginal infections and natural remedies
– Massage for uterine health
– Group self exam and uterine size check, observe others’ vaginas, cervixes and clitorises.
The Beautiful Cervix Project’s Womb Wisdom Workshops will begin in the spring of 2013
You are invited to attend a safe, interactive, and informative workshop to empower you to reconnect with the wise womb within you. More than just a reproductive refresher course, this is empowered cool older sister version of the awkward Sex Ed class from middle school.
We circle together to share knowledge, love and celebration for our bodies and cycles and dismantle cultural misinformation and shame about women’s bodies.
Discover your Body Anew: Explore the perfection of our female bodies from a feminist perspective. Gain tools to expand your sexual pleasure.
Reclaim your Cycle: Learn the basic ‘how-tos’ and ‘whys’ of menstrual cycle charting to understand your body’s rhythms and fertility and natural birth control. Knowledge = Power.
Get to Know your Cervix: Speculum + Flashlight + Mirror = Awe-Inspiring Self-Exploration. Option to do self-exam together in a group or choose to use your exam kit only at home.
Nourish Your Yoni: Create your own herbal vaginal steam bath potion for use at home.
Green your Cycle: Discover Eco-alternatives to disposable tampons & pads that promote the health of your body and of our Mother Earth.
Intended for groups of 5-7 women in their reproductive years.
Each participant will be given her own speculum, mirror and flashlight. In the spirit of the DIY self-exam of the 1970’s feminist movement, let the Body Loving Revolution continue!
Have Speculums, Will Travel…
I am happy to travel to you! Beginning in the Spring of 2013, I will be taking the show on the road…If you are interested in hosting a workshop in your area, please contact me.
