I learned how to Drum and Sing at Omega Institute, and I met over 20 Goddess who were looking for more ways to get in touch with their Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self! The Workshop was very Physical, Spiritual, and Sensuous. It included many of my interests including Dancing, Yoga, Essential Oils, being out in Nature, connecting with other Goddesses . . . and having Fun! I also met one really nice guy who wanted to be in our Goddess Workshop, and was invited by Sierra to join our morning Circle. He and several other beautiful spirits stopped by to join our Drumming Circle as well, and others sat nearby and listened. Drumming and Singing was an amazing way to start each day. Sierra’s voice was Strong, Passionate, and Inspiring. She was our leader and role model. I learned how to Drum and Sing with Passion. We all evolved toward feeling more free to show passion with each passing day … which was very appropriate for the “Goddesses Gone Wild” Workshop.
Morning hikes were very physical, and definitely helped cardio. But, I only went on one hike, due to a previous knee issue. I decided I’d rather go for a walk in the morning, so I could do the morning Yoga workout and participate in the afternoon dancing for hours. 😉
We did a Vision Quest . . .a short one, but still very powerful. We enjoyed silent time alone in the Forest for several hours. It increased my awareness of the 100 acres of woods that I call home. I need to remember that the Woods are sacred, and I need to celebrate it by doing my Sensuous Women Workshops there. I also want to have more Vision Quests on my own, and learn more about them. I believe that the more we can be out in Nature and feel connected to Mother Nature . . . the better.
The dancing parts of the Workshops were energetic Fun. We got to Dance with several Drummers, and an enthusiastic Journey Dance Instructor Toni Bergins . The dancing was wild and passionate. During the next afternoon workshop, we had a Sensuous Dance Instructor Lisa Zarowitz , show us how to get in touch with our Inner Sensuous,Sexy Dancer. The Music was excellent, and the Dance moves were Fun, Funny, Sexy, and Sensuous!
During our time at the Workshop, there was a full moon, and several of us Goddesses decided to go see the moon come up over the Lake. We had a Bonfire, and Sang and Drummed and Howled at the Moon. It was a memorable experience!
It was also nice just being at Omega Institute, and enjoying the like-minded people all around. It was a luxury having someone else create Vegetarian Meals for 6 days. The café with a deck overlooking the garden was a lovely place to hang out with friends, and eat something decadent, like chocolate chip cookies or sweet potato fries. The Lake was beautiful and peaceful, and I enjoyed kayaking one morning and singing songs I learned during the morning circle. Aromatherapy is one of my latest passions, and it was great fun having a portion of one of the days dedicated to Essential Oils. I believe that they are absolutely Essential for creating amazing wellness in Body, Mind, and Spirit! One of the most bonding experiences was the Fire Ceremony on the last night. We told stories and shared thoughts and feelings. We made affirmations about many different parts of our Lives, and we Sang and Drummed. I left Omega the next day with a refreshed Spirit and with new thoughts and ideas related to my own Workshops for Sensuous Women. I also had a plan to Sing and Drum every day! And stay in touch with the wonderful Goddesses I met along the way.
Thanks, Sierra, for teaching me how to Drum and Sing . . . and for being a teacher of Women . . . helping them become “The Person They Want to Be”.
You inspired me!
