50 HOUR WOMEN’S SELF-CARE TRAINING
GOA, INDIA • SAMATA HOLISTIC
Feb 23-28, 2018
For female therapists, psychologists, yoga teachers and all women interested in learning a self-care program designed specifically for women. Learn to take care of you first. Especially if you are taking care of many others. You will leave this training feeling clear, revitalized, supported…and inspired. The skills, techniques and creativity cultivated in this training will become a gift to share with your female clients, patients, students, family and friends.
~Enjoy a fresh and honest education about women’s sexuality, physicality, psychology and spirituality — including understanding pleasure, menstrual reclamation, embracing fertility, developing self-esteem, healing depression and eating disorders, and busting cultural taboos.
~Enhance your emotional maturity by welcoming anger, jealousy, sadness, fear, bliss, sexual feelings and ecstasy. Increase your comfort with discomfort, tears and speaking your truth.
~Learn to sense where the sexual organs are located in the body — and what they are capable of! Understand why women’s emotions, menstruation and energy levels work in cycles and how to work with these cycles. We will also discuss when women may need additional mental physical and emotional support and who is available and working in these fields.
~Incorporate the the lunar cycles into your life. For many women this facilitates clear decision making, a deep trust and connection with nature and access to a nature based calendar that reveals when to work, plan and be social and when to reserve energy, retreat and rest.
~Journey into the breath with Connected Breathwork. Open-mouth, conscious and connected breathing naturally releases dimethyltryptamine (DMT) into the brain. This can create expanded emotional awareness, peak experiences of oneness, and spiritual breakthroughs.
~Learn luscious self-care rituals and practices that replenish the nervous system, harmonize breath patterns, soothe the sexual organs, release old trauma and tension in the body and boost the female psyche. These rituals are respectful of the various cycles in a woman’s life and body which is crucial to female vitality, self-respect and spiritual empowerment.
-Learn how to create and guide honest, intimate and inspiring Women’s Circles for your friends, family & community
Training includes: Women’s Self Care Training Manual, one-on-one council & 3 Ayurvedic meals per day
“Emily’s Self Care for Women course has been utterly transformational for me. I’m still discovering the full impact of what I learned nine months after the experience. When I first heard about the course, I was at Emily’s women’s circle in Ubud. Something in me leapt, and I knew I had to be there. As the time for the course approached, I started to question that decision. Didn’t I already have a great self-care practice? Did I really need this? Something in me said yes, and I’m glad I listened! The entire time I was there, I felt lovingly enveloped in a community of incredible women. One of the most important things I learned was that entering spaces of pleasurable safety can be a catalyst for immense growth. It was a huge shift for me to see that I could stretch my comfort zone far more easily and joyfully than I thought possible when I felt safe, held, and loved. Most importantly, I learned to listen to myself, trust myself, and feel gratitude for the phenomenal gift it is to be a woman and to be a part of a community of women. Emily has created an incredible offering in this course, and I want every woman I know to experience it!” Cait, USA

“I took part of Emily’s Women’s Self Care training in 2017 in India. At first when looking into it I had unsure feelings, whether it is for me and if this is what I am actually looking for. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for but I felt that I needed something to nurture me on a very deep level. I felt a craving to boost myself; and not only by doing yoga daily and eating healthy food but I wanted some more insight into myself and come out of the training with a new perspective. The training truly did exceed my expectations: partly because I didn’t know what to expect and I went into it like a blank sheet of paper, but also because Emily and other mentors knowledge goes beyond what is taught to us. They gather their knowledge from various different sources combining it to a very rich curriculum. In my honest opinion every woman should experience it. It is a vital training for any woman. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we did yoga, we shared our vulnerable sides and also strengths, we all supported each-other and everything was welcomed. Unexpected things get opened up in this training: and everything happens in a most warm, friendly and healthy environment. The expression “emotional safety” reached a whole new level for me. This training shifted my perspective on myself as a woman and changed my life.” -Anna-Maria
“I had never been to a retreat before and the information about Emily’s course came unexpected, but somehow resonated and touched my heart. It was one of the bests things that ever happened to me! In the beautiful Goa, surrounded by colors and sounds, I learned to see more, feel more and understand more. The course opened places in my mind and heart and made me face my fears and understand my beauty.Day after day, in an atmosphere of safety and trust, we shared experiences and feelings and talked about what women seem to be about. I connected with the Universe, nature, with others, but most importantly with myself. Samata retreat itself was amazing – cheerful, happy and standard is great. I am definitely coming back to continue the journey.” -Magda
