I'm so excited to announce that "Portal of The Feminine: Understanding The Erotic Equation and Female Arousal to Change Your Life" is coming to San Francisco this January!

Are you ready to to developing an internal guide to successfully and sustainability explore your sexuality?

Please join me, (Pamela Madsen) and Mac S. McGregor, two internationally known sex educators who have done pioneering work in women's Sexuality, Fertility, Gender and Asian Healing Arts for a non-residential two day retreat created just for women in San Francisco!

Perhaps you have never heard the term "Erotic Intelligence", "The Erotic Equation", "Erotic Guides" or even "Uses of the Erotic"?

Most women live outside ourselves, and rely on external forces, input and directives to guide our lives rather than from our internal knowledge and needs. When we tune out our own internal erotic guides we limit our capacity for creativity, sexual expression, pleasure, and our own ability to be powerful in our careers. This workshop will introduce you to your own internal guide perhaps for the first time, or take you deeper of the power of the erotic within ourselves.

The retreat will begin the moment you register with homework assignments and the opportunity to participate in a special Facebook Group created just for our participants attending this experience.

We will join together Friday evening before our Saturday retreat to know each other, share some light food and wine, create the intentions for our retreat and begin to explore this concept of the erotic as an internal guide for women.

On Saturday we will begin the process of exploring, reclaiming or getting to know our personal erotic internal guides.

Our process will include:

1. Guided meditation into listening to our own internal erotic guide.
2. Explore The Lotus Lift Meditation to tap into Arousal Energy to fuel your creativity
3. Explore our full female expression and how we hold those emotions in our bodies.
4. Understand "The Erotic Equation" and learn to utilize this in daily life.
5. Identify Your Erotic Creature.
6. Examine why we keep ourselves small erotically and practice opening ourselves up to our greatness
7.. Delve deeper in our sexual desire and learn to honor, access and express it.
8. Understanding menstruation, Peri-menopause and menopause: How do these stages of female biology affect our sexuality, creativity and desire. How does the voices of our
internal guide shift with each life change.
9. Confront our hunger in every form from sexuality, to food, to money.
10.Tell the stories of our bodies.
11. Learn to access and work with our Arousal and Orgasm as a holistic tool for healing and transformation in our lives.
12. Explore Tai-Chi as a means for connecting to the erotic with Martial Arts Master, Shihan Mac S. McGregor
13. Explore relationship issues with Pamela and Mac S. McGregor

This workshop is LGBTQ friendly and is open to any person that identifies as female.

Women will have access to the Facegroup group before and after the retreat is over for further support.
