Over the course of 9-months you will unfold and birth the wild, glorious, untamed parts of who you are, uncovering the sometimes neglected aspects of you that hold great power and wisdom. You will discover new aspects and come back to yourself, defining that which you are devoted to and reclaiming aliveness and pleasure that is your birthright.
This group is an invitation for you to engage with yourself—with your living, feeling body as a portal to unlocking who you truly are.
This study group draws on Michaela’s work “The Wild Woman’s Way” as well as the teachings of her lineage. You will learn from her directly as she shares insights, teachings, gives transmission and assigns practices.
In this highly personalized format you have the opportunity to draw directly on her vast experience as a counselor and teacher as well as learn from her direct applications of the practices and her experience as a practitioner in the engagement with adversity, loss and success.
Each practice and session is designed as a portal – an entry point – into our vast and rich inner landscape which you can explore in between sessions.
In each meeting we will immerse into specifically themed embodied movement, sacred ritual and self-inquiry, integrating body, heart and mind to foster personal empowerment, deeper connection and understanding of who you are as a woman.
Through these practices you will gain the ability to cognitively translate this bodily learning into engagement with a partner, your career and your chosen community.
What you will receive as part of the Study Group:
Four 6 hour live online Zoom sessions:
Three 2-hour live online check-in calls:
Access to Online Portal:
Special Format due to Covid-19 Considerations:
Since we don’t know when in-person meetings will be possible again, we have planned this years course with online meetings. We intend to add in-person meetings in Amsterdam, Ojai and Melbourne when it is safe to do so.
Community & Connection
In addition to the immersive learning you will have the chance to connect with like-minded women from all across the globe, which will add richness and a depth of community. Through the online platform and a private, moderated Facebook group you will have the opportunity to ask us and each other questions, connect and share your journey through these nine months.
Enrollment in this program entitles you to a 50% discount on all events hosted by Michaela and Steve for a full year including 5-Day Immersion and Teacher Training (discount cannot be combined with other promotions or discounts).
Each Women’s Study Group is specifically designed to utilize the length of time between meetings to foster lasting learning and give ample time to integrate the practices on a somatic, emotional and cognitive level.
Each year’s group has a specific curriculum and each meeting builds and expands on previous learning. You can pace the intensity of your engagement by adjusting the duration and frequency of your practices.
In the Advanced Group we will build on the devotional and embodied explorations by entering into the domains of sensual and erotic exploration and expression. We will engage in practices that explore subtle body yoga and engage the energy centers of the body.
This group allows for tailored practices and assignments in the domains you are most interested in. You can choose to enter deeper into the deity yoga practices, engage with merging and subsequently polarizing, explore your gifts in the erotic, sensual or artistic. You can also focus on your chosen path or professional domain.
We will engage with the body as a vehicle for great feeling, intuition and sensation. You have the opportunity to explore sexual practice, art or ritual as an individual assignment.
Michaela Is awesome! A great teacher of woman’s practice, taking us to new places in our bodies and hearts. She is artful in her instruction, sensitive with feeling into her students and discerning and intelligent with her responses. She is a master of her time, passing along ancient teaching with heart and wisdom.
Two words that describe it for me: LIFE CHANGING. It was what I needed, what I’ve been longing for. My feminine was so embraced and nurtured in beautiful surroundings and every participant gifted me with an experience that has truly allowed me to embody me. To be. Me. I felt reset. I felt like I’ve never felt and from this point on there is no turning back.
By immersing us in ourselves, Michaela’s workshop enriches the feminine self in each of us.
