The Mastery program unfolds over the course of three live intensives in the spring with robust support structures in between. These monthly two-day immersions into the Womanly Arts are intense, moving, powerful, and unforgettable. They are designed to teach you the tools and arts through experiential, embodied learning. You can expect unparalleled experiences of sisterhood, emotional heights, and profound breakthroughs.
Intensives are held in a gorgeous venue in the heart of New York City—on Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th; Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May18th, Friday, June 21st and Saturday, June 22nd 2019. Every session is taught by Regena Thomashauer (aka Mama Gena) and supported by a devoted team of staff and graduate volunteers.
After more than 20 years, 2019 will be the last time ever that Regena teaches Womanly Arts Mastery. This year is your final opportunity.
The Mastery Curriculum
Part One: Reclamation
Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th, 2019 (with Sunday open for your own adventures)
In our first live experience together, we’ll crack open a whole new paradigm for the feminine. We’ll unpack where we are as women culturally, discuss what messages we’ve been taught, and explore how we’ve disconnected from our truth. You’ll then begin the process of reconnecting with your deepest desires and kick off a radically new relationship with your body. This weekend is about getting unstuck, connected in sisterhood, and learning the foundational tools to begin your transformation.
Own every face of womanhood
Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May 18th, 2019 (with Sunday open for your own adventures)
Part two of our journey is all about learning how to feel. It’s about unleashing and trusting your emotional range and discovering how to use this innate aspect of your womanhood for good. So much wisdom lies in the emotions we’ve been taught to keep a lid on (grief, rage, frustration, ecstasy, joy). You’ll learn how to access, embody, and move through to your power spot. You’ll gain the tools you require to step out of victimhood, and into creatrix of your life, owning the perfection of your storyline at every turn.
Part Three: Radiance in Action
Friday, June 21st and Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 (with Sunday open for your own adventures)
We’ll gather for a final weekend to expand your toolbox and create the life you truly desire. This weekend is where we dig deep into relationship and decode the man/woman and masculine/feminine dance, uncovering the myths we’ve been taught, discovering new ways of relating to one another and parts of ourselves, and focusing on integrating this work into all aspects of life.
THERE’S SO MUCH MORE!
The Mastery program extends far beyond the live classes. In fact, the real adventure begins as you integrate this work into your daily life back at home. To support you in implementing and expanding everything you learn in class, Mastery includes robust support structures and resources in between intensives.
Each of the course elements below is designed to keep you connected, witnessed, and in action throughout.
Each week, you are given tools, exercises and activities to support, strengthen, and expand everything you’re learning inside the room. Everything from provocative written exercises, to book recommendations, to outrageous explorations in your relationships—each exercise and tool is designed to bring the Mastery classroom into the laboratory of your life, in order to help you practice and integrate your learnings. We’ve seen women have amazing breakthroughs by doing these exercises. And we’ve seen women having amazing results just showing up to class. How you do homework is entirely up to you—there is no right way or wrong way to participate in Mastery.
Every week you’ll have access to two, hour-long calls, designed to help you practice the tools you’re learning in class. This is another way to stay connected to and supported by other students as you integrate the tools into your life. You choose how many calls to participate in — every few days, just once a week, or even once a month.
You’ll get 24/7 access to our private Facebook group where you will receive encouragement, witness, and support from the community. There will be places to post your homework, practice the tools, find a study buddy, and network! Your classmates will join you from all over the world, united in sisterhood.
This is a place you can come and share no matter how you’re doing or what you’re feeling. It can be source of inspiration and support. You might be surprised at how much value stems from participating in the group—we’ve seen women share so vulnerability and profoundly that it’s made a difference not only to themselves, but to the other women witnessing them.
In addition to the Mastery 2019 class Facebook group, upon graduation, you will receive lifetime online access to learning resources and a robust directory of Mastery alumni and businesses (in which, if you wish, you’ll be included!).
Mastery guest teachers are nationally recognized authors, educators, and scholars. We select the best of the best to share their expertise across a broad range of subjects from personal finance to women’s sensual health. Almost once a week, in be-tween weekend intensives, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from one of our Guest Teachers. They will lead teleclasses on topics to compliment and ignite your learning in the course. Past speakers include Christiane Northrup, Sonya Renee Taylor, Barbara Stanny, Marie Forleo, and more.
Mastery doesn’t end when class ends. After class, New York City is your laboratory! There is no formal programming Sundays of the weekend intensives (this is new, by request!) so you can use them for pleasure research in NYC, for digesting with long walks through Central Park, or for kombucha and champagne dates with new sisters. Additionally, we encourage you to get together with classmates in your local area — whether it’s to start a book club, a study group, a regular night out on the town… whatever your heart desires.
Book a no pressure, one-on-one conversation with a course graduate to explore the possibilities.
Investing in Yourself
If you’re like most women, there are a zillion and one people, projects, and obligations competing for your attention. By the end of the day, there’s just not much leftover. Slowly, across time, your needs, your wants, your self-care, your pleasure have gotten pushed down and crowded out. Maybe at this point you don’t even know what you want or who you are, beyond what you handle for other people.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with being a generous caregiver to those you love. Or being super ambitious and dedicated around your professional goals and responsibilities. But the question is…where are you on the priority list?
Often, investing in ourselves, even in small acts of self-care, can feel impossible, indulgent, or downright selfish. Especially when there’s no immediately obvious ROI in dollars or credentials.
As women, most of us swim in a sea of indecision where our “logic” seems at odds with our intuition, and where we struggle to hear our truth—never mind follow it. Women have been taught to shut down our feelings and instincts, and listen intently to the expectations of others.
Yet, the truth is, in order to have a vibrant, rich, and satisfying life, we have to fill ourselves up. And at the end of the day, it’s the best thing you can do for those in your life — because a restored, lit-up, turned-on woman has a whole lot more to give to those around her.
Getting yourself to Mastery takes effort, and it takes courage. It sometimes can feel impractical, like it’s too much, or just not possible. Ultimately, it takes an inexplicable yearning, a knowing, a feeling, a pull, an instinctual sense that there is something here for you. Some might call it a leap of faith. Instead of listening to your head, you listen to a feeling, an inner whispering of your body and your soul. You take the leap to invest in yourself with the hope and faith that your life benefits as a result.
Mastery is an investment, there is no doubt about it. Should you choose to invest your time, money, and energy into this program, you have our strong commitment in ensuring an incredible value. At this point, after ten years and thousands of graduates, we know this program creates results. We know it’s an investment that pays itself back many times over. Please read some of the graduate stories for inspiration. Most of all, listen to your inner voice. It might be quiet, it might be doubtful, it might be buried…but it’s probably there if you’ve read this far.
We invite you to come to an Intro Event to experience a taste of this work and its potential. You can also speak with a course graduate, via an Exploratory Call. It’s an in-depth 20-minute conversation to explore what calls to you, what you’re looking to improve or change, and whether this would be a good investment. Mastery is not for everyone, which is why booking an Exploratory Session or attending an Intro Event are both excellent ways to help you feel more confident in your decision.
I used to feel shame around not standing for the life I knew I wanted and was capable of. When I signed up for Mastery, I had no idea who would watch my kids, or how I would pay for it. I only knew that I would be there. There was a woman inside me crying to come out and I knew it was her time. Going through the Mastery program was one of the biggest miracles in my life.
I was intrigued, but I had a lot of reasons “why not” and they all boiled down to being unwilling to give it to myself. I spent a long time knowing that I wasn’t giving myself something that would be joyous. I kept thinking it was about the money. It really took a lot for me to love myself enough to sign up.
Before Mastery, I had been studying the whole spiritual thing—I had the mind, I had the spirit, but the BODY wasn’t in it! I was a head case. And then in Mastery, I started paying attention to moving my body, to getting in the pleasure of my body, to understanding her and what she wanted and what she didn’t. The difference now is that I’m IN my body. I live in my body.
