I learned how to Drum and Sing at Omega ~ “Goddesses Gone Wild” with Sierra Bender

20160807_085801.jpgI 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!

I highly recommend this Workshop, “Goddesses Gone Wild ” TM  with Sierra Bender. Author of Goddess to the Core R, creator of Retreats, Boot Camp for Goddesses R, Goddess in the Bedroom R, Goddess Up! R, Goddesses Gone Wild TM, and the Sierra Bender Empowerment Method.

Costumes are not just for Halloween…Go Costume Shopping!

wpid-20151021_215313.jpgGo shopping for a costume, either alone or with your lover. Around Halloween, you will find a variety of costumes available for envisioning the possibilities. At other times of the year, you may use an online search, or go to a local sexy lingerie shop, or adult toy store. Spend some time exploring costume ideas. Think about all of the role-playing options. Do you want to be the “Sexy Schoolgirl” or perhaps the “Naughty Night Nurse”? Spark your lover’s interest by asking a few questions: “Which costumes turn you on?” “Why don’t you select a few things for me to wear from one of your fantasies?” All of this activity will open the door for future conversations.

After you find a few items, try them on. Either take your lover into the dressing room with you, or wait to observe his reaction when you step out in your outfit. Be sure to move very close to him to feel his response to each new look. And remember, your partner may need a costume as well to fulfill the fantasy! Perhaps he is the “Hot Fireman” who has come to rescue the Sexy Schoolgirl, or maybe he is the “Rich Private Patient” who needs a sponge bath from the Naughty Night Nurse. The costumes themselves may provide all of the fun alone. By simply wearing them, you will bring new sensuous dimensions to your personality, and your love life. Of course, you don’t have to wait for Halloween!

Until Next time,

Sensuous Feet ~ Find a Podiatrist to Love!

wpid-img_20150927_100740805.jpgIn order to be a Sensuous Woman or a Sensuous Man you must be aware of your Body and how it feels.  Developing an awareness of how your Body feels and an understanding of what it needs will help you keep it Healthy and Feeling Good… and that will make you more Sensuous and Sexy. A Sensuous Person understands the importance of nurturing the Body and taking care of any needs. Keeping our feet Happy and Healthy is critical to our overall well-being.

And believe it or not, no matter how old you are, you need to start thinking about keeping your feet Happy.

“If your feet are not Happy, you won’t be Happy”.

Almost Famous Quote

Peggy Durham, Sensuous Life Coach

It is difficult or impossible to feel Sensuous if your feet hurt… And  75% of Americans will have foot problems at one time or another. In an average day of walking, we put hundreds of tons of impact on our feet. They need our help.

In each foot, there are 26 Bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles.  There is a lot going on in our feet and we need to pay attention to them if we want to stay Sexy, Sensuous and Healthy.

And as we age… things get even worse and it is more critical to figure out what is going on… the sooner the better. We all abuse our feet. High heels or other shoes that we stuff our feet into can do damage. Shoes with no support or stability are just as bad.

A few facts about aging feet.

Foot size increases ½ size every 10 years after 40. (I think that this happens much sooner.)

Tendons and Ligaments lose their elasticity which causes a flattening of the feet.

Increased force over time causes Fat Pads that cushion the bottom of the foot to thin.

And even if you get fatter, the Fat Pads in your feet get thinner.

Foot flattening can mess with your Big toe making it more likely to rub on the top of your shoe.

Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, and Diabetes can cause lots of other foot problems.

Bunions, Calluses, Toe Nail issues, Joint Malfunctions, Heel pain and Knee and Hip problems are a few other issues that you may have to deal with that are related to feet not being happy.

Unstable feet cause Falls.

Foot pain makes it very difficult to feel Sexy and Sensuous.

All of these things can cause you to lose your Youthful Bounce and the Spring in your Step. So what can you do. I believe that there is a lot you can do no matter where you are in Life. Paying attention to how your feet are doing is key and giving them the love and attention they deserve is vital.

Wearing comfortable shoes that have good support as often as possible is the best thing you can do for your feet. You may need to purchase a new pair of shoes that let your toes wiggle and your feet breathe. Next, you will need to determine if you need arch support or cushioning.  You may want to start by looking at shoe inserts that are available online or at your local shoe store or pharmacy. There are lots of options for shoe inserts that cushion and support your feet. If none of these inserts work for you… I highly recommend that you see a Podiatrist and have custom shoe inserts made. They are made exactly to take care of the needs of your feet. They will bring back that sexy bounce in your step and give you more energy.

I am always searching for great shoes that make me feel bouncy and energetic.

My favorite Shoes right now are GO Walk 3 for Women .

They also have Go Walk 3 for Men .

These shoes make you feel like you are walking on a cloud.  Lots of bounce for the buck. I love to find great shoes like these… Please leave a comment if you know about a wonderful pair of shoes.

And don’t forget Foot Massage as a great way to keep your feet healthy. Share a massage with a friend or do it yourself.

Learn Reflexology…there is a page in my Book about that…

Keeping your Happy and Healthy is worth the time and effort… Make the world a happier place.  Please share this post with others…

Until Next time,

Chocolate for Breakfast!

image

So I was explaining to one of my friends last evening that the best thing  I do every day for myself is to a drink a Sensuous Protein Shake made with fruits and vegetables. That way no matter what else I do the rest of the Day, I know that I did one really wonderful thing for my mind and body.
The first step in creating your own Sensuous Protein Shake is to get a high quality protein powder.  Dr Oz and many experts recommend Pea Protein and consider it the best protein to choose for your protein shake. I get my chocolate protein powder  from Arbonne. Available from peggydurham.arbonne.com   It contains pea protein, as well as rice and cranberry protein, vitamins and minerals, alfalfa, Co 10 and ginseng.   I use almond milk and add berries or mango. That works well if you are using a blender but what is really fun is to use a Nutri Bullet.  I’ve been using one lately. It allows me to add a carrot, apple, kale or almost any fruit or veggie.  The Nutri Bullet pulverizes all fruits and veggies into a liquid. Pulverizing it makes it super healthy and highly available to your body.

You can make this shake really smooth and yummy by adding a half of a square of dark chocolate and a banana. Then top it with grated dark chocolate.

About the photo above … the shake was so good I kept drinking it while I was looking for the camera.

Always make enough for two and give half of it to a friend or Lover. Have your Shake for breakfast or for  two snacks. Eating or drinking protein throughout the day keeps your metabolism humming nicely!

Give and Get a 10 minute Massage

There is nothing better than getting a Massasge… I have been know to say this many times in my Life!  So Give and Get a 10-Minute Massage.  McMaster University researchers have shown that a ten-minute massage not only helps sore muscles, but also has an impact on inflammation-related, chronic conditions.  This is a great reason to give and get a massage.  Apparently, massage can trigger body sensors that send inflammation-reducing signals to muscle cells, and thereby reduce inflammation and speed healing.  Healing is promoted because massage tells the muscles to build more mitochondria, which are the “power stations” of the cells.  So, now there is another great reason for massage . . . not that we needed one.  

A shoulder massage is easy to give, and can be done fully clothed.  Just stand behind the person you want to massage.  Place your hand over the top of the shoulder, and gently squeeze the trapezius muscle that runs from the neck to the top of the arm.  Next, with your hands in the same position, reach down the back with your thumbs, and massage the muscles on both sides of the spine.  Move in small circles, or just reach as far as you can, and stroke the muscles up and down.  You can do this for a few minutes, and then take your thumbs and make small circular motions on both sides of the spine, as far down as you want to go.   After that, bring your hands back to the shoulders, and gently squeeze the large muscles at the top of the arm.  Then, run your hand gently down the arms to the hands, squeezing the arm gently as you go.  This works especially well if you are massaging your lover.  As you move down the arm, you can nuzzle your lover’s neck.  Ask your lover how it felt, and if he would like more.  You can start again at the neck, or see if he has any other requests.  You can also explain the information about how massage helps reduce inflammation.  

You can tell him that you feel that massage is so important that you are thinking about getting a massage every week, and you are looking for a hot massage guy to give you what you need.  Ask him if he knows anyone.  Tell him that you would be open to any kind of bartering.  Hopefully, he will catch your drift. You can be sure that he will understand what you mean if you touch him suggestively.  Tell him that you were told to pay for it, if you need to . . . but you prefer bartering.  More than likely you will also get a 10-minute massage.
