Tantric initiation for Women
The Initiation for woman process is an individually tailored package focusing on what is needed to support genuine change in your life. Its an introduction and opportunity for you to take control of your life with deeper understanding of how to navigate the challenges that you face within your "Being" on all levels.
It doesn’t get more comprehensive than this. In order to address one issue such as shut down sexual energy, we need to explore all the bodies (physical/emotional/mental/spiritual) as they are all interconnected. We address this through the context of Tantra (traditional and neo) and Taoism along with a wealth of other modalities that may be needed to create the shifts.
I can reflect back on the changes that have come my way from around 36, where my life starting hitting major obstacles that very much felt beyond my control. Having studied Astrology, Tantra and Taoism, I was able to navigate these times with deeper understanding of the inevitable midlife transits that take us into crisis as a means of really pulling us into our power as women and liberating us from wherever it is that we are repressed, fearful and not living our truth.
For all woman around this age, these transit are the onset of physiological changes that affect our hormonal regularities and our bodies start experiencing radical changes from mood alterations to weight gain, exhaustion or extreme restlessness and agitation.
When we enter our personal midlife realm anywhere from 36-50’s, having a strong awareness of where we are heading, who we are, and how we can support all of our bodies( physical/emotional/spiritual/mental) is essential. Maintaining daily practices ensure that we not only brush our teeth every day, but that we explore meditation, yoga, dance, healthy eating and some kind of exercise even if its daily 5 minutes of Tabatha to ensure that our lymphatic system is in motion and flow. All of these bodies (physical/emotional/spiritual/mental) are interconnected and when any of the physiological systems stop functioning at their optimum, it's harder and takes longer time than when we were in our 20’s to bring back into stasis.
Themes of exploration during the initiation.
-Life force energy and what state its in.
-Ovarian breathing which compresses more life force energy ( chi) into the ovaries for more sexual power.

Taoism and female sexuality
We are all born with an abundance of energy which in Taoism is called Ching/ Principle energy which exists in the pelvic region and is an energy produced by the sexual organs in men and woman. In woman this is the creative energy necessary to make the eggs, create the uterine lining, hormones and keeping a woman’s sexuality alive and strong. This Ching energy converts into life force energy for the organs which is energy called Chi or prana. Conserving or restoring this energy promotes a longer and healthier life.
Sexual energy(Creative energy) is the only energy that can be doubled and increased, which means that if you want to restore lost Ching, the sexual energy provides the means to create that extra power if we transform it back into Ching which we can then transform into Chi.
When we are young and healthy, and abundant in Ching, we take that for granted and through the process of living under constant stress, pressure of hastiness, fear, worry anger and other negative emotions along with the unhealthy foods, drink and drugs that we consume, we gradually eat up our life force energy.
