Juicy Feminine Living | Oct. 3rd

Juicy Feminine Living
.
With Hormone Balance Cooking, Sacred Sexuality, and Sensual Living.
 .
Tuesday, October 3rd 6:30pm-8:30pm
 .
 .
 .
Just like the moon, women go through phases in their menstrual cycles and cycles of womanhood such as menarche and moonpause.
 .
This class will share information on supporting foods for hormonal fluctuations and recipes like Raw Cacao Shakti Brownies, that increase feminine vitality, reduce cravings, PMS, and menopause symptoms.
This class will activate your inner goddess! In addition, we will share feminine tips on Sacred Sexuality, exploring Yoni Egg use (Jade Egg practice), Tantric breath-work practices to enhance sacral chakra activation, and adaptogenic herbs and tinctures for feminine health.
 .
Cyclical living is what is needed to help empower women, helping let go of the idea of the menstrual cycle or menopause being a CURSE but rather a GIFT with much wisdom!
 .
Let’s deeply explore the art of Sensual Feminine Living, together in Sisterhood.

About the Facilitator
.
.
Allie McFee is a Women’s Wellness Educator, Raw Foods Chef, and Red Tent Facilitator.

The recipes and practices she shares help women live a “Modern Goddess Lifestyle,” which she defines as a lifestyle intended to help women use their menstrual cycle and cycles of woman such as “moonpause” as a source of power to connect to their intuition, a.k.a. “their inner goddess.” She co-facilitates red tent women ceremonies to help women activate their womb space energy and connect with their sisterhood tribe.

About the Author
Diana J. Ensign, JD, is a frequent speaker and workshop facilitator on compassion, grief, and healing. A contemporary author in the field of spirituality, her recent book, HEART GUIDE: True Stories of Grief and Healing, shares intimate and poignant guidance for those who are grieving the death of a loved one.
 .
–Hospice Social Worker, Anne Alderfer, LCSW, states, “This compassionate book connects the reader to powerful stories of loss and to personal antidotes for healing grief. These raw, unscripted conversations about death help comfort and encourage anyone who has felt abandoned by grief.”
 .
 .
–Counselor Ingrid Sato (M.S., LMFT, LCSW, Co-founder of Friends of Awakening Sangha) remarks of this book, “It is in sharing our grief that we develop the capacity to be open to our suffering and to the suffering of others and to the reality of death as a human experience that needs community support.”
 .
.
Ensign’s prior book, TRAVELING SPIRIT: Daily Tools for Your Life’s Journey, provides spiritual tools for dealing with life’s challenges. The journey to wholeness begins within. TRAVELING SPIRIT explores the link between practicing our daily spiritual routines and building a more loving world community.
 .

About Mickey Pliley – Psychic reader and instructor.

.

  “Walk your life path with sacred awareness and be happy.”  ~ Mickey

Mickey Pliley, psychic reader and channel, metaphysical instructor, art teacher, and college professor has earned degrees in Liberal Studies and English with minors in Psychology and Experiential Studies, and currently teaches for Indiana University and Ivy Tech Community College.

    “I believe Divine Intuition is here to guide us on life’s journey, regardless which spiritual path, cosmology, or religion we follow. Readings often confirm what we intuit and reveal what we do not know.  They can provide daily guidance, warn of danger, and point out opportunities unseen. We all need answers to the queries of life so that we make better decisions in completion of our life’s purpose.”  ~  Mickey

Gain Self-mastery and Discover Happiness to Better Walk your Life Path

Mickey invites you to join her for readings, classes, events, and meditations.
