Let’s face it – there is a lack of role models in the dominant culture for powerful wise womyn. Elizabeth Gross is working to shift that. Join her as she guides you through this journey of Womyn’s health and Radical Self Care.
Every Friday: March 23rd – May 4th 6-8PM EST
WE ARE THE ROLE MODELS FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS
We have all experienced fear around aging, negative body image and judgement towards other womyn. We all have experience with the standard American diet (aka The “SAD” Diet). Many of us struggle with the long term effects of these cultural shortcomings, including illness.
But somewhere inside… we all know there is another way.
How in line are your present actions with your intuition? What support do you need to step into your intuitive wisdom and self mastery?
It is time to cultivate our inner resources.
The ancestral wisdom of how to live sustainably and take care of our selves and our communities as womyn is known! You can know it too and share it with those you love.
There are simple solutions.
Gain the tools to support yourself emotionally, physically and mentally. Be a part of the social evolution that is upon us now, established by the growing community of womyn committed to healthy living.
There is strength in community.
Community gathering is one of the most powerful actions any womyn can take. True healing is done with support. Learn from each other’s experiences to make powerful life changes that matter.

SESSION 3: Nutrient Density for Hormone Balance

SESSION 4: Red Tent
WEEK OF THE NEW MOON: 4/11 – 4/17
Have you ever noticed your menses tends to sync with womyn who you are often surrounded by? Womyn inside matriarchal, prehistoric (before 10,000BC) cultures acknowledged this rhythm and gathered together in a literal Red Tent to bond, share stories and connect as womyn during this sacred time. This ritual can re-occur in a modern, culturally applicable way as a powerful tool for sharing vulnerable experience inside a safe container. This session will provide that container, thereby deepening our connection with each other as womyn holding a shared experience. Learn ways to bring this practice into your communities back home, including seasonal songs, altar items and foods to incorporate into your ritual.
SESSION 5: Emotional Freedom Technique
WEEK OF THE FIRST QUARTER MOON: 4/18 – 4/24
Negative emotions are stored in the physical tissue and need a way out. This week will detail the Emotional Freedom Technique (“Tapping”), a modern technique with roots in the Traditional Thai Ayurvedic practice “Tok Sen”. This method is one you can do every day to re-pattern and release negative emotions from your body. EFT is an extremely helpful to process emotionally intense experiences throughout and beyond this program.

WEEK OF THE FULL MOON: 4/25 – 5/1
