Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts: Using the Power of Pleasure to Have Your Way with the World
I have to admit, this book isn’t going to be for everyone. Its full of personal stories and antidotes about woman doing rather outrageous things. So, if you’re faint of heart, you may want to tread cautiously.
Regena Thomashauer, (aka Mama Gena), believes that the world revolves around us, the women of the world. (I couldn’t agree more.) She teaches that happiness for both women and men come from woman’s desires. We desire, they desire to make us happy. Works great for everyone!!
The problem that we run into is that society to a large degree isn’t teaching us to follow desires. Actually, as most of us know, it’s quite the opposite! Heck, we’ve come along way, but how many women have jobs (including stay-at-home mommies) AND are the ring leader (of a circus of many times one) when in comes to house duties too!
In this book, Mama Gena explores our desires and how to get us back in touch with them. There are multiple “Womanly Arts” and in each chapter she explains, we explore through other women’s experiences, then to really bring it home, there are exercises at the end of each chapter!
If this book isn’t enough for you and you want to delve even deeper into learning about your personal MOJO… Mama Gena has a website where you can read the blog, you can get daily little reminders to love yourself, desire deeply, and totally rock (I totally get these emails), and also…
…drum roll please…
Yes, classes. And the best part of this is that there are ones where you get to go to her Pleasure Palace in New York City once a month or so for however long. (Which I would love to do… but not in the cards right now.) But there is also an online class! Interwebs, community, calls and the lot. …That one is on my “must do” list!
