Just for women 50 +! Our culture worships the beauty of a young woman’s body. As women age, culture ignorantly turns a blind eye to what God sees in the crone. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to see your beautiful crone body through the eyes of God, and why it’s more beautiful than ever before.
As a crone, you’ve noticed culture responds to you very differently than when you were a maiden. The older woman feels dismissed, treated as if her prime were past. The changes in her body, far from honored, are seen as problems to be treated with hair color, cosmetics or even surgery, all to cover up the fabulous beauty our culture does not see. God does not see the crone the way culture does. Your aging, graying, wrinkling body is beautiful and to be celebrated and honored. In this workshop, you’ll experience how being a crone is one of the most wonderful times of life.
In a powerful woman’s Tantra ritual led by Dakini Leah, you’ll take a good look at how culture sees you, how you see you, and how God sees you. You’ll learn to shift your concept of beauty away from the meaningless, relatively new, “Barbie doll” ideal. Clarissa Pinkola Estes writes in her book, Women Who Run with Wolves, eastern cultures view the body through the ideal of function. Did your breast feed a child, comfort someone in sadness, bring you pleasure when it was caressed? Then it’s a beautiful breast. Do you have a lifetime of good memories around that beautiful breast? That’s the joy of living in a crone body. This is the way God sees your whole body. Will you see yourself through the eyes of God?
In the second half of this powerful workshop, you’ll be led through an hour of body-affirming Crones Yoga™ by Jody Ford. Crones Yoga was developed especially to honor functionality over aesthetics. Instead of asking your body to conform, Crones Yoga honors the tenure of your body’s strength and movement. Your aging muscles and tendons will feel relief from soreness, tightness, and aches.
You’ll come away from this Love my Crone Body workshop with practical skills for relishing this enviable season. If you’re a woman over 50, this workshop is not to be missed!
