Women’s Taoist Sexual Qi Gong Practices
Berkshire Location still unfolding
In ancient cultures, the early days of May were observed with ritual
connecting body, earth and cosmos.
In these traditions, women’s pleasure was considered essential for the earth’s fertility.
We’ll come together, tapping into our own and the earth’s rising energy.
Mary and Sarah will have just returned from the Callanish standing stone circles in western Scotland, inspired to share our most recent studies about the reemergence of the Sacred Feminine.
Because space is limited, please register early!

Beltane was traditionally about reawakening the connection between the land and sky, and the body as conduits of sacred energy. We remember this ancient tradition now when the world is in desperate need of the healing that we can bring. But it's too easy as women to forget our calling when we're distracted by the details of our busy lives. And when the shoulds of our schedules and society come before the deep knowing that lies asleep within.
So it's time to reawaken. To feel again our bodies' sensitivity. To move in response to her desires. To come back to ourselves! It's time to re-member. Remember who we are. Remember our own intimate connection to ourselves. And remember the power of our feminine selves to manifest and heal.
This one-day workshop will do just that. Please give yourself the gift of our own remembering.
Over thousands of years the Taoists developed a system for accessing and connecting to the Earth's energy and power. Some of the most powerful mysteries they discovered were reserved only for royalty as they were thought to be too potent for the masses.
It was known then that the second chakra, our genitals, were the source of our life-force energy, our creativity and our passion. Nurturing that connection was considered to be both a responsibility of leadership and an essential foundation to living a healthy, fulfilling and joy-filled life.
This ancient wisdom is not entirely lost, though access to it is rare. We women push ourselves to meet constant demands day after day and wonder why we suffer from adrenal fatigue, exhaustion and lethargy, why our life force lags. We try to fit in exercise and a little pampering here and there, but still feel depleted.
True nurturance demands a rethinking of how we honor our essential needs in a practical way and attune ourselves to our bodies' wisdom.
A Native American elder reminded me recently that, just as in China millennia ago, indigenous peoples know our power lies in our connection to the Earth. We forget that our female bodies mirror the Earth’s cycles. We are part of Her, and connection to Her — and to our sisters – is the implicit foundation of life’s joy and effectiveness.
But how do we re-connect?
Please join Mary Campbell and Sarah Nicholson in this day-long exploration of the Taoist secrets to Women's Sensual Awakening. We will share with you practices we've learned from our teachers, Saida Desilets and Martine Flores, as we introduce and guide you in the foundational Jade Egg practice. This intro will allow you to begin a relationship to the Jade Egg, to initiate its practice, and explore its potential impact for your life.
You will experience a deeper connection to your own sexual energy, a revived awareness and control of the musculature of your vagina, and with that, increased pleasure both for yourself and with a partner.
Women passing through the body’s natural menopausal changes may notice improved lubrication and continence as well as more fulfilling sexual response and pleasure. And we will also be building renewed trust in the sisterhood as we regain lost confidence in our safety with other women.
Please contact us for sliding scale considerations. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
