Sometimes, (ok, maybe all the time…) the truth is hard to hear. From without, or from within. Especially when it runs counter to our thoughts and expectations for ourselves or others. I have been a spoken word rock star, doing live shows for thousands of students, setting pussies free, and turning women on for 21...

As a woman, I have had a troubled relationship with shoes. (Can I hear an amen?) I have been way more step sister than Cinderella. That long, slim, elegant shape that most shoes are designed to fit, in no way resembles the spatula-shaped tootsies that I received from my potato farming, shtetl-dwelling, Eastern European grandparents....

I was at the airport this morning, catching an early flight. Paying for gum and a magazine. There was a long line behind me. I felt myself habitually tighten, and press down on my inner gas pedal. “Hurry Regena! The next person is waiting!!” Noticing the constriction in my chest, I purposely slowed down. Made...

Am I shallow? Maybe. Maybe not. There are things I took for granted, as a woman. I kind of always assumed that when I walked down the street (especially living in NYC) that male heads were going to turn. Comments might be made. I would have to account for that fact in how I dressed,...

Everything is truly figureoutable! I am a woman in transition, at the moment. Who else is on board that train? I imagine a LOT of us. Women are ever evolving, ever creating, ever changing. Even if we are stable in one area, there is going to be another part of our lives that requires expansion...

There was a lot going on. I was doing a Facebook Live with my grads, and a woman asked a powerful question about desire. She wanted to know what the difference was between a desire you think you want, and a desire that comes straight from your pussy. This is such a good question on...

Sometimes hard things are just…hard. It’s not about you. It’s not that you didn’t do the right thing. It’s not that you didn’t do enough. It’s not that you weren’t up for it. Or missed the boat. Or gave too little. Or too much. You didn’t blow it, or screw it up, and it’s not...

An adventure? Or a tragedy? This is a question I have been waking up to, and many of us have been waking up to, pretty regularly as of late. Escalating racism, xenophobia, anti-LGBTQ attitudes, gun violence, and intolerance in our country and the world, have hit me, and many of us, like daggers of grief...

After 21 years of teaching Womanly Arts Mastery in New York City, I decided the graduating class of June 2019 would be the last to learn from me in that format. I’m not finished teaching by any means…but the What’s Next is still unfolding… It was a huge decision and a deeply meaningful and heartbreakingly...
