“I have to say, Mama Gena did not impress me.”

March 5, 2013

Darling, Women are like trees. When we are given fertile soil, glorious sunshine, abundant water, and a perfect climate, not only will we thrive and grow, but we will provide so much beauty and joy and nourishment for others. But what are the ingredients necessary to cultivate a superior environment for a woman? What causes […]

How to get there from here

February 19, 2013

Darling, First, it was Portland on Sunday: A large pink ball of fire blazed through the NIA studios, igniting 200 women and their 8,000 nerve endings, hosted by Debbie Rosas. Last night was another asteroid blast: We blew the figurative windows out of a wonderful, packed to overflowing yoga studio in West Hollywood, called City […]

The five men that have everyone talking

February 5, 2013

Darling, So, the Saturday before last I had the most incredible, beautiful, amazing Intro event of my life. Over 300 women showed up at our new Mastery venue, the French Institute, and cut loose. New York City is still vibrating. But that is not the half of it. The half of it was the men! […]

How to get a guy to love you

January 22, 2013

Darling, You did it. You got the job you deserved. You slogged through and got the divorce you needed. The kids are handled and thriving. You make friends every time you turn around. But why oh why does love—real true love, with an amazing partner—remain just out of reach? What have we women lost, in […]

Perfect on the outside, dying on the inside

January 15, 2013

Darling, It was just another cold December morning.  I woke up, got the kid on the bus, went to spin class, showered, dressed. I settled in with a gigantic cup of English breakfast tea, in my God Save the Queen mug, to catch up with my emails before the office opened.  In my inbox, I […]

“I know you want me”? Are you kidding?

January 8, 2013

Darling, Do the words “I know you want me” fall flat on your ears? Like a thud. Clunk. Or even a halting screech? If so, you’re not alone: Dear Mama, What were you thinking?! I absolutely love you and the work that you do, but why would ever title your event something as trivial as […]

I know you want me.

December 11, 2012

Darling, It is not easy being The Pleasure Queen, now, is it? You all know as well as I do, being that all of us are Pleasure Queens of our own little universes. It’s a lot of pressure to pull ‘Queen’ off well. You gotta look good. Feel good. Do good. Pay attention. Grow. Try […]

Hmm…would I rather date? Or clean toilets?

November 27, 2012

Darling, The world of relationships is never easy to navigate. Every time a woman puts on her lip gloss and heels and hits a bar, a club, a restaurant, a library, an online dating site—with the hope of having a fun encounter with a new guy—she is taking a huge crazy risk with her sense […]

The myth of Hypoactive Desire Disorder

October 9, 2012

Darling, You will love this fantastic question! I have the most amazing husband in the world. I have 2 beautiful kids and I can’t seem to ignite my sex drive or get out of my grumpy funk. Any suggestions on how to find my sass, my swagger, and my desire again? Emily Dear Emily, Oh, […]

“I am 31 and have never had a boyfriend.”

October 2, 2012

Darling, Welcome to the inaugural Ask Mama post! There have been so many requests for a Q&A forum that I have decided to listen and give it up to you and your incredible, powerful questions. I will still hold forth and blog about issues that tug at my soul now and then, but I wanted to […]
