2023 Women’s Study Group: Level 2

November 11, 2023
Two time-streams to choose from, please scroll down to description for details.
Online via Zoom
The Study Groups are all about ongoing learning, community, and deepening practice. The richness of the unfolding curriculum as we journey together is uniquely supportive to deep learning, while the 4 meeting dates create a container and through-line for practice and engagement.
With that in mind, the Study Groups will continue as a live online curriculum, offering an in-depth engagement with the body – from deeper embodiment to subtle body unfolding and into the various aspects of the Pleasure Body – with a rich new theme.
This will allow us to gather our international Study Group members together to receive a special curriculum we have curated to bring you material tailored to the online medium.
After considering how to best tie this year’s curriculum into the study group trajectory at large,this year we are going to enter into the practical, yet shamanic realms of Elemental Practice from a place of increased capacity and sensitivity.
This year our ongoing online study group “Elements and the Pleasure Body” will offer deepening teachings on all aspects of elemental practice and the pleasure body, from the subtle interactions of the elements with the body’s energy system, the power of elements for releasing stuckness and unlocking pleasure, elemental typological and relational styles, rituals and practices to awaken the senses through the elements, the shadow aspects of each element, and more.
This material will be offered as a one-off program for 2023 after which time we will revisit new ways to offer the standard curriculum organized by year (you will retain your place in the curriculum).
These teachings apply to all years and experience levels as they add a whole other dimension to your personal embodiment and practice and are exclusively available to you as a participant of the Study Groups.
Like last year, we will offer 4 sessions online, in 2 Time Streams (6 hours each) so you can join according to your time zone.
We have scheduled the meetings in such a way that we can accommodate the exclusive study group retreats.
You once again will have access to your portal and Facebook discussion group, and we will keep the 2022 material available for you.
As always, each session will have education, guided practices, instruction and Q&A time and include home practices to deepen your engagement.

In addition to the online format we are excited to offer exclusive, in-person practice retreats which are only available to members of the study groups.
In these retreats you will revitalize and deepen your existing practices while receiving transmission and instruction in new lineage methods, in ways that are only possible in person.
Alongside rigorous practice, there will be an emphasis on celebration, ritual, and community, and an education on how to connect with the sublime qualities of the physical body, the subtle body, and nature itself.
This is an opportunity to connect with those in your own year group, including dedicated instruction from me for each year group, as well as connecting with members of the wider international community.
We are pricing these retreats to make them accessible to those currently in the Online Study Groups (your 50% discount applies) so you can combine both online and in-person study for the deepest and fullest possible engagement.
The first of these is in Portugal, April 8-12. You can read more about the retreat & sign up here.
These in-person retreats are optional and are not required for participation in the Online Study Group.
You are welcome to attend both streams or divide your time between them. We scheduled stream A to accommodate London, Amsterdam and Melbourne times, Stream B is scheduled to accommodate the US and Melbourne. We have already accounted for EU, US and Australia daylight savings time changes, which is why some of the times jump in Spring and Fall.

A safe, supportive, fun and empowering space was held where I could connect with my archetype through dance and the support of Michaela and the group. I left the workshop feeling closely connected to my body, my feminine energy and life force and with a strong sense of my personal power.
A deeply feminine force has awakened within me. I feel like a different person. My mind feels quieter and things feel simpler and more clear. I feel much less of a sense of doubt in my life and can feel my own solidity. My body and energy feels sensual and light and this touches my heart deeply. I feel a sense of holding and support, and the love of the Divine. Thank you Michaela for the gift of your work.
Michaela brings an unmatched depth of knowledge, intuition, and experience into the practice room. This workshop deepened my relationship with ecstasy. It’s a rare opportunity to access teachings of such authenticity that, while esoteric at their core, are grounded in practical applicability. This is a workshop I would definitely do again and again.
The work has been anchored into my very essence and now I can’t wait to sign up to further work with Michaela and the team. This is world-class teaching and I feel blessed and grateful to Michaela bringing it into the world in the way she does and to have stumbled across her path. I feel a renewed and deeply supported intention to deep soul embodiment. I no longer feel alone on that journey.
