Self-approval

If the shoe fits

October 29, 2019

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. […]

Creation, beauty, all the things you are

October 15, 2019

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?

October 1, 2019

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, […]

Heal a Woman, Heal the World

September 17, 2019

I had this incredible experience a couple of weeks ago. I got to totally see myself from the other side. Kind of like that moment in It’s a Wonderful Life when the angel gives George a tour of what life would have been like without him. (If you haven’t seen this movie, you will have […]

Everything is Figureoutable

September 9, 2019

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 […]

What if your body was a god?

September 3, 2019

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 […]

The Runway to Pleasure

August 20, 2019

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 […]

How to Practice Leaping

August 6, 2019

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 […]

For Layla

July 23, 2019

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 […]

For those who feel deeply

July 2, 2019

We all have times of intense transition. Times of our lives when we have to seriously step up, step down, step aside, step back, or step ahead. Not simple stuff! How many times have you stayed too long in a relationship that was never going to work out? Or, conversely, how many times have you […]
