The other day, my newly 15 year-old daughter was waiting at the bus-stop to go meet some friends.
As she reported back to me later on, a car drove by and a man motioned out of the window as if to say "call me!"
And then shortly after that, two slightly older school boys came up to her and one said: "are you today's date? Because you're a 5 out of 10." (It was October 5th)
My daughter felt weird about both of these experiences and I can totally understand why. As a tende
My amazing Dancing the Goddess course has been running for 7 weeks now. We've embraced Radha, Saraswati, Parvati, Kali, Durga and Sita thus far. And each evening has been an incredibly potent experience of Divine Feminine connection, awakening and transformation. As we prepare the altar each week and dress in the colours of the Goddess in residence, we've enjoyed dipping into the pinks, reds, whites and yellows in our wardrobe and bringing fresh flowers and fruit as decorat
I write this blog exactly half-way through delivering my current Dancing the Goddess workshop series. For those of you who’ve somehow missed out on hearing about it, this is a creation of my heart and soul: a transformational embodiment experience of connecting with the energy and gifts of the Divine Feminine through sacred circle, dance, meditation and mantra. It’s proving to be a super-powerful experience for all us, as the energy of each Goddess has been palpable – not onl
So let me ask you something: When you hear about one of my women-only events, such as my weekly Dancing the Goddess course or upcoming Sacred Women’s Circle… what kind of response do you have? I ask, because when I invited a student along to Dancing the Goddess, she vehemently rejected the idea, on the basis that there is “a lot of bitchiness” when groups of women gather together. “Oh wow!” I thought. “What a terrible association to have with one’s own gender!” And then, of
Last night I was reminded - again - of why I am so passionate about my work. It was really useful at a time when I'm doing all kinds of deep diving into my ideal client, branding and market niche with my coach. You see... my gorgeous 14 year-old daughter is a brilliant source of what's going on with young women and, I'm sorry to say, what she tells me often makes me sad. The young women she hangs out with at school and athletics are variously preoccupied with their looks and
This morning I turned on the radio and heard the news of yet another senior Catholic religious person (I'm sorry, but I really don't care if they're a priest, Bishop or the bloody Pope) being brought to trial for child sexual abuse. Dear God! Yes! Dear God! This has been happening now for DECADES! Why is nobody asking the question as to WHY this is happening and has been happening for so very long? It astounds and appalls me. Isn't is very very obvious to see, that the attemp
When you hear the word “Goddess”, what's your immediate response?
Some women feel an instant resonance and calling.
Others imagine reference to something airy fairy, primped up or so removed from their lived reality that they can’t relate.
What if I let you into a secret?
In my eyes, by the very fact that you are a woman, you ARE a Goddess.
And, no, this doesn’t mean you have to go around wearing a tiara on your head, waving a magic wand and beaming love-heart
Enjoy this podcast in which Feminine Branding Expert, Ruqayya Daville, interviews me about the power of Feminine Energy. You'll hear me speak about my own connection with the body and nature from an early age, as well as my take on the power we hold as women and how to use feminine energy wisely, as well as how to balance and alchemise it with the masculine. #RadiantWomanhood #awakeningshakti #divinefeminine #feminineenergy #femininity
