Do You See Yourself in this Photograph?


I want to share with you the first of our brand-new series of Radio Portraits, here at The School of Womanly Arts.
This is a series of audio interviews describing photographic moments that take place inside the Mastery classroom.
There are some moments in life that have so much power, so much depth, so much beauty, they hover in the air for eternity.

This photograph was one of those moments.
The subject?
My beloved student and friend, Sister Goddess Elvira.
I have known Elvira for ten years, since she flounced into the uptown Pleasure Palace, long mane of chestnut hair flying, to join an early Mama 101 class, a week after it had begun.
She and I have been there, and back together, over the years. Divorces, raising daughters, falling in and out of love.

Elvira is in a whole new place now.
It had been some years since she had crossed the threshold of The School of Womanly Arts. And much had changed.
When she arrived in Miami, I could see that my sister was in a crisis.
And needed an emergency pleasure infusion.  She was dressed in what looked like a suit-of-armor version of Miami beachwear.
And I could see that her innate sense of confidence and joy had vanished.
There was one tool that I knew would bring her back to herself, immediately.
A runway….

This portrait illustrates the crossroads every woman faces. We can either choose to be a victim…or a creatrix. The victim is stuck in judging, blaming, and complaining when she doesn’t get what she wants—completely bound. But the creatrix is too busy leaping in the direction of one monumental desire after another. She is living a life unbound.

In one instant, Elvira made the courageous decision to unbind. What gave her that ability? The Sister Goddess Community. Sisterhood is the magical elixir in unbinding yourself and living the life you have longed for.

That is why we created the World Wide Sister Goddess Reunion in Miami. To teach women to celebrate their desires, rather than doubt them, like we are so used to doing. Because when a woman lunges for what she wants, with abandon, it is the ultimate act of goodwill. It takes everyone in her world higher.

Elvira is a force of nature. And so are you. This was her masterpiece. What will be yours? What legendary moment awaits you, in Miami?

With so much love and pleasure,

Mama Gena
